Ellen Degeneres is 59 years old, and Miley Cyrus 24! So when the pop­u­lar host in­vited the young pop singer­ac­tor on her chat show — The Ellen Degeneres Show — she tried understanding the younger gen­er­a­tion through the view­point of a mil­len­nial, re­ported eon­line.com. Mil­len­ni­als is a term used for those born be­tween 1982 and 2002. “One thing peo­ple my age don’t un­der­stand are mil­len­ni­als,” said Degeneres, adding, “And I don’t like ig­no­rance. So, I want us all to be open and try to un­der­stand one an­other. So, I asked one of my friends to help me bridge the gap be­tween mil­len­ni­als and my gen­er­a­tion.” In a seg­ment, the host re­ferred to Cyrus as “Mileyen­nial,” and asked her a se­ries of ques­tions about the habits of mil­len­ni­als, like tak­ing pic­tures of their food on In­sta­gram, or lik­ing mu­sic fes­ti­vals. Cyrus, telling Degeneres that she shared her own food photo this sum­mer to cel­e­brate the fact that she’s ve­gan, ex­plained. “Food pho­tos are just kind of like a cel­e­bra­tion of life... I think, we [in gen­eral] take food for granted, and a photo helps re­mind us of the beauty that’s in front of us ev­ery sin­gle day.” As for Degeneres’ ques­tion about young­sters throng­ing “dirty” fes­ti­vals that are so “hot and crowded”, Cyrus said, “For a lot of peo­ple, it’s about be­ing seen... Ev­ery­body goes. There’s tons of celebri­ties there, you know.” Degeneres, as ex­pected, had a witty one to crack: “So if some­one posted a pic­ture of them­self at Coachella with food, In­sta­gram would just burst into flames?”
