Miley Cyrus is now one of many artists to have some choice words to say about Mariah Carey.
Things first started in a recent episode of The Voice for which the singer is now a coach on. In her critique to a contestant, Miley claimed that “not everyone can be Mariah Carey.” Instead, she encouraged that person to be a more authentic singer and artist.
“It’s like, if you’re going to have someone win because of their story, go write a screenplay about your life. On The Voice, I try to steer away everyone who comes in here with an idea of what “the voice” means, which is that you’ve got to be the pitch-perfect singer.”
In the past we’ve seen Demi Lovato attempt the same thing, but to no avail. The “Confident” singer recently gave her two cents when she came across a now-deleted Instagram post of a side-by-side comparison of Mariah and Ariana Grande that read: “When you order it online vs. when it arrives.” Instantly snapping back, Lovato said that the person had it the other way around.
Trying to clear the air, she followed up by saying “Mariah is a legend and is so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer [Lopez]. Ari did nothing wrong.” Now appearing on the cover of Elle magazine, the “Wrecking Ball” singer addressed that statement in a recent interview.
“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,” Cyrus said. “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.”
