Miley Cyrus explains her red carpet boycott

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus is standing by her decision to “never do a red carpet again.”

The outspoken singer was featured on ELLE‘s October issue on Monday, and told the publication, “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.”

Following her bold proclamation, the celeb appeared on the Today show this morning to clarify her controversial comments, discuss her work as a judge on The Voice, and her role in the new Woody Allen series Crisis in Six Scenes.

“It’s really not about the color of the carpet. It’s more about, especially women, we get yelled at to blow them a kiss, and I don’t feel like blowing you a kiss,” she explained. “[The photographers] yell, ‘Blow us a kiss!’ Like what is going on? Who are you? And then you’re just kind of putting yourself out there for people to talk.”

She continued, “I don’t want people to talk about what I’m wearing. That’s usually why I don’t wear too much, but they make me wear clothes on The Voice and on the Today show, so this is what I chose.”

What do you think about Miley’s decision to avoid the red carpet? Real protest or publicity grab? Sound off below!

    Please please ignore her and make her not ‘famous’ anymore. Then she will regret not blowing kisses and answering questions about what she’s wearing. The people have the power, not the celebs!

    I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, there’s totally more important things to focus than what someone is wearing. But! She’s a willing participant in a system that feeds on fashion and beauty. By going on these talk shows, appearing on magazine covers, and exposing her life on social media, she’s participating.

    Who cares, very happy that you made the choice not to attend

    yes she has a right to not attend and as for bowing kisses for the photographers they can kiss off-she definitely has no obligation to do this for them.

    Maybe Miley doesn’t roll that way, but Hannah Montana may not have any qualms about walking the red carpet when her next film opens…

    I thought she meant she wouldn’t be going down on any more redheads. It’s sad how her father Silly Gay Virus blames David Lynch for his daughter being a whore when he should be blaming himself.

    “I don’t want people to talk about what I’m wearing. That’s usually why I don’t wear too much, but they make me wear clothes on The Voice and on the Today show, so this is what I chose.”

    oh that’s why you barley where any clothes… and here I thought you were just trash.
