Miley Cyrus Is No Fan Of Mariah Carey’s Shtick

Miley Cyrus is a coach on the new season of The Voice, joining a panel that also includes Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine, and she discusses the new gig in a new cover story on Elle Magazine. While filming the show, Cyrus reportedly told a contestant that not everyone can be Mariah Carey, and when asked about the remark, the young star had some not-so-kind words for the Elusive Chanteuse:

I’ve never really been a fan, because it’s so much about Mariah Carey. 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. What I make isn’t about me. It’s about sharing my story; it’s about someone being connected to what I’m saying.

Well, not everyone can be Miley Cyrus.
