Miley Cyrus no fan of Mariah Carey
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.”
