"I will never do a red carpet again," Cyrus 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."
Cyrus voluntarily stepped out of the limelight last year, eschewing the business-side of things that come along with fame. She fired her publicist and tackles her own exposure via Instagram and interviews with select publications.
According to Elle, Cyrus agreed to the interview to increase awareness about her new gig as a judge on the upcoming season of The Voice.
