All of us are used to seeing the child star on TV with some crazy new fashion, but nobody will guess the shocking reason behind it all.
Miley Cyrus, just 23 years old, has definitely had to grow up fast – especially being in front of the camera and constantly in the spotlight of public opinion. After she secured a very promising future in music for herself, many have noticed changes in her outfit choices – and not just any changes, shocking, drastic, and very unique changes.
With her new post as coach on NBC’s 11th season of The Voice, she’s really showing her skills off as a vocalist and musical expert – regardless of what the public thinks about her outfits and sometimes risque stage performances.
During a recent behind-the-scenes interview, she confesses the heartbreaking reason behind her wild outfit choices – and it’s one that you won’t see coming.
“I don’t actually dress the way I dress to distract,” Miley revealed. “Because I feel like I don’t actually – it’s very funny…I don’t actually love attention on me.”
The young singer admits that she thinks it’s important to find something that makes you feel comfortable as a performer, and that style is a way for her to do that.
“It actually makes me feel very uncomfortable sometimes,” she adds. “That’s why I talk an obnoxious amount – to fill the awkward space.”
She says that by creating eye-catching styles it gives the people focused on her something to look at instead of “staring into your soul”.
Miley adds that she wants to help her students on the show feel comfortable in their own skin while performing – just as she does through non-traditional style choices.
