Yikes! Miley Cyrus threw some serious shade at Mariah Carey in a new interview on Sept. 28, and she wasn’t holding back at all! Miley says that she’s ‘never really been a fan’ of Mimi, and the reason why is brutal. We have all the details, right here.
Miley Cyrus, 23, had some choice words for pop icon Mariah Carey, 46, in her new Elle interview that came out on Sept. 28. When they asked her what she meant when she once told a The Voice contestant that not everyone can be Mariah, she unleashed her true feelings.
“I’ve never really been a fan, because it’s so much about Mariah Carey,” the singer revealed. “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.” Miley doesn’t like the way Mariah’s personality and image overshadows her work, and that’s what she says makes them such different artists.
“What I make isn’t about me,” she explained. “It’s about sharing my story; it’s about someone being connected to what I’m saying.” We must admit, Miley’s music is definitely deeper and more emotional than Mimi’s but that doesn’t mean its a good or bad thing. They’re just different!
However, we must admit we kind of enjoy seeing Mariah get a taste of her own medicine. Mimi has been known for being a diva, and she’s repeatedly slammed other stars like Jennifer Lopez, who she refuses to acknowledge she knows. It’s crazy! Demi Lovato once came to her defense, dissing Mimi to defend her, but we like that Miley was more classy and honest about it.
