The 23-year-old Voice judge recently opened up about why.
“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.”
