Miley Cyrus is no fan of the great Mariah Carey. Saaay what? Well Miley says Mariah is all about Mariah.”I’ve never really been a fan, because it’s so much about Mariah Carey,” Miley told Elle. “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.”
Mariah is a classic—but we totally get what she is saying…that’s why MC is a DIVA!
And Miley also dropped the truth on us about Hannah Montana—she was an underpaid actress. “Even though my dad was in the industry, he so wasn’t. But he was very smart—we have a huge farm in Nashville that he bought for nothing, and now it’s, like, a music capital. But I did not grow up spoiled in any way. I just wanted to be on TV. I mean, at one point—they’ll probably kill me for saying it—I was probably the least paid person on my [Hannah Montana] cast because I didn’t know any better. I was just like, I can be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it! My name was Miley on my show, but I didn’t own my name—we didn’t think about that. Like, Yeah, you can use my name on your show, sure! My mom started understanding how many people take advantage of a child, so she hired smart people to protect me in that way. I’m happy that when I was younger, people protected me and put me in a position where I can now control my music.”
Do you think Miley was taken advantage of on Hannah Montana—it used to be a cash cow?
