Miley Cyrus has been a household celebrity name for many years now. From the endearing tween star of Hannah Montana to the outrageously “in your face” pop singer she has since become, Cyrus has never been one to back down from who she is. Especially in recent years, she is outspoken about her identity and issues she cares about, adding “social activist” to her resume. Cyrus explicitly supports Bernie Sanders and advocates for LGBTQ rights and animal rights; she’s even started the Happy Hippie Foundation in support of homeless and LGBTQ youth.
In fact, Cyrus is taking certain steps away from her role as a celebrity, as revealed in the latest issue of Elle. She announced during her cover star interview that she would not be walking any more red carpets. “[A year ago] I had to do the [A Very Murray Christmas] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again,” Cyrus 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. It’s like a skit—it’s like Zoolander.”
