Miley Cyrus elaborates on her “no red carpet” policy and has a great point TBH

A few days ago, Miley Cyrus shocked the world when she announced that she would no longer be doing red carpets. In an interview with Elle magazine, the 23-year old pop star 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."

And while we applaud her decision to not be professionally photographed on the red carpet anymore, we (along with a lot of other people) wanted to know more behind the reason why.

The “We Can’t Stop” singer sat down with Carson Daly and Savannah Guntherie on the Today show and elaborated a bit more on what she meant in her Elle interview.

"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. [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."

Seriously, no one wants to get catcalled EVER, so could you imagine having to experience that all the time on the red carpet?

She added, “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.”

Preach it, sista!
