Miley is over the red carpet madness. Being in the spotlight since the age of 14, she’s done with having cameras in her face. In an interview for the Today Show, she defends her stance on why she will no longer walk any carpet no matter what color it is. She says:
“It’s really not about the color of the carpet. It’s more about, especially women, we get yelled at to blow them a kiss, and I don’t feel like blowing you a kiss. [The photographers] yell, ‘Blow us a kiss!’ Like what is going on? Who are you? And then you’re just kind of putting yourself out there for people to talk.”
Cyrus’s final red carpet appearance was the Bill Murray’s holiday Netflix feature, A Very Murray Christmas, where she announced the end of her red carpet days. Miley has been more focused on helping the homeless and LGBTQ+ communities. About this specific red carpet, she declared:
“[A year ago] I had to do the [A Very Murray Christmas] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again. Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important’? Because I’m ‘famous’? That’s not how I roll. It’s like a skit—it’s like Zoolander.”
Miley also spoke to Elle Magazine mentioning she will also communicate with her fans directly rather than have a publicist responding to her fans. This proves that she is not the typical celebrity. On her Instagram, you can see her support for the LGBTQ+ community with her colorful posts and bold captions. Cyrus has been very outspoken about many issues and has never shied away from anything and with her fierce personality, we can definitely relate as to why she does not want to do red carpets anymore. Since we won’t be seeing Miley on the red carpets anymore, we can always see her as the new spunky judge on The Voice on NBC.
