Miley Cyrus is about as real as one can get.
The 23-year-old singer, "Voice" coach and actress gets candid in a new interview with Elle as the magazine's October 2016 cover star. In a teaser for the full interview, Cyrus opens up about why she hates red carpets and what she's looking forward to telling her contestants on "The Voice."
"[A year ago] I had to do the ['A Very Murray Christmas'] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again," Cyrus said. "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. It's like a skit—it's like 'Zoolander.'"
Instead, the singer (who doesn't have a publicist anymore) says she keeps fans up to date with her Instagram feed. There, she publishes photos about her work with her Happy Hippie Foundation, cute pics of boyfriend Liam Hemsworth and stuff about her new coaching gig on "The Voice."
As far as advice-giving goes on the NBC show, Cyrus says she wants her contestants to stand out, much like a famous senator from Vermont.
"I don't want this to come off the wrong way, but I'm going to tell my contestants: Be Bernie Sanders," the singer told Elle. "Be the person people want and love. Don't worry about the masses. That's how you make a memorable moment. Let people talk about it."
