Miley Cyrus: No more red carpets for me

Miley Cyrus has a big announcement – she has retired from the red carpet.

The singer said dressing up in your finest and strutting down the carpet to glitzy premieres seems odd when people around the world are living in poverty.

She told Elle magazine: “(A year ago) I had to do the (A Very Murray Christmas) premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again.

“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.”

But Miley fans needn’t worry about not seeing her again, the 23-year-old will still be sharing snaps on social media.

Not Snapchat though, as she doesn’t know how to use it.

“I feel like I’ll be an old lady that’s too held back, because I don’t keep up with it,” Miley admitted.
