All the other coaches will be walking without her this year after she refused, saying she “will never do a red carpet again”.
The former star of Hannah Montana, heavily-awarded vocalist, and controversial coach of the new ‘Voice’ season opened up about why she’s refusing to walk on a red carpet at The Voice (or any other event) in a new interview with Elle.
Miley Cyrus has always been an outgoing and outspoken person, but in this upcoming edition of Elle, the singer and coach confesses why she’s taking such a different stance – which according to Gossip Cop, “stem from her problems with both fame and show business.”
Last year, she walked down the red carpet for A Very Murray Christmas, which seems to be when she came to this realization and opinion on the red carpet.
“I had to do the premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again,” she told the magazine. “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….”
Continuing the interview, Miley confesses that she often feels ashamed of her success because so many other people are suffering in the world, and revealed that she “couldn’t sleep because [she] felt so guilty”.
The guilt-wracked pop superstar even went on to explain how a recent hike had her felling “like an a**hole”.
“I was covered in rashes because I was so stressed,” Miley said. “Even today, I dropped my water on my hike and felt like such an a**hole,” Adding, “There are children being sold into sex slavery; how can I go on a hike right now?”
It remains to be seen if she will be contractually obligated to walk the red carpet on The Voice, but if there’s a way out of doing that, it sounds like Miley will choose that option.
What do you think of Miley’s choice?
