Mi­ley Cyrus no fan of Mariah Carey

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — En­ter­tain­ment Tonight

Mi­ley Cyrus ap­par­ently isn’t a BFF of Mariah Carey. In an in­ter­view with Elle mag­a­zine, the 23year-old star didn’t hold back when asked about her com­ment dur­ing film­ing of “The Voice” that “not ev­ery­one can be Mariah Carey.”

“I’ve never re­ally been a fan be­cause it’s so much about Mariah Carey,” Cyrus says. “That’s part of her shtick; I can see through that. That’s part of what makes her a gay icon; like, it’s about Mimi! It’s about what she’s wear­ing, and it’s about her. What I make isn’t about me. It’s about shar­ing my story; it’s about some­one be­ing con­nected to what I’m say­ing.”

Cyrus says she steers away from ad­ver­tis­ing any prod­ucts.

“That’s why you don’t see me, like, on the sides of buses, sell­ing s---,” she says. “I mean, what am I go­ing to do, sell makeup? Mostly, I tell peo­ple, ‘Don’t wear makeup.’ … I don’t re­ally [like makeup] for the con­tes­tants be­cause some of these girls come from ... Ar­kan­sas with cake face on. Like, I don’t want these kids to come out here and wear a bunch of makeup.”

Cyrus, who was the face of MAC’s Viva Glam col­lec­tion last year, also in­di­rectly calls out Ali­cia Keys’ no-makeup pledge. Cyrus says 35-year-old Keys does, in fact, have a makeup artist.

“I mean, I cover my zits, but be­sides that I don’t re­ally wear it,” Cyrus says. “And Ali­cia doesn’t re­ally wear it. But she’s got a makeup artist, and I don’t.”
