Miley Cyrus: ‘Everything in my closets is studded or leather or latex, honey’

The Fashion Awards, Arrivals, Royal Albert Hall, London, UK

Miley Cyrus has been hosting an Instagram live talk-show called Bright Minded: Live with Miley. It ran for three weeks with episodes that were filmed pre-lockdown, then during the lockdown, Miley did another launch of the show and interviewed some of her heroes who were doing vital charity work, as well as interviews with friends and colleagues. That’s what Miley is promoting in a new issue of WSJ. Magazine. Some (exhausting) quotes from the interview:

She books her show by sliding into people’s DMs: “I am the ultimate slide-into-the-DMs! This is the way that I have communicated and actually gotten things done for years. I ended up thinking, ‘S—, I might as well send one to Reese Witherspoon. She’s probably not going to answer, but OK.’ And then she answered and said she would love to give me a couple minutes.” Cyrus also revealed that some of the guests she’s tried to book would leave her on “seen,” but she had the perfect formula for getting them to reply. “And then I’ll send a smiley face emoji for like 10 days in a row… The door is always open! I’m sure some people I was reaching out to felt the same way I do, which is that my experience [dealing with the pandemic] is so rare, it almost doesn’t feel right to talk about.”

Why she loves doing the show: “I love connecting with people. There’s something about when you listen to someone else’s stories that you realize all these pieces of yourself, too. I think that’s what I’ve missed in my life, those relationships.”

She interviewed Elizabeth Warren: “Oh, my God! With Elizabeth Warren, I was so nervous I even put on a nice linen blouse. I don’t even own a friggin’ blouse! Everything in my closets is studded or leather or latex, honey. So I’m going through my damn closet, like, What am I going to wear to interview the friggin’ senator? That was my main stress, of course. But a lot of the time it’s been important for me to be wearing what everyone else is wearing at home. I’m in my sweatpants and a topknot, just like everyone else. I’ve only washed my hair twice for the show: once for Elton John and once for Senator Warren.”

She misses seeing her family in person: “It’s the longest I’ve gone without seeing my mom or my grandma. My mom and I pretty much FaceTime from the minute I’m awake until I’m asleep. I love that she has nothing to do; so she has to just sit with me every moment, which is like the good old days! The first thing I want to do is definitely hug my mom and dad when I get the green light that it’s safe. Right now, my mom won’t get anywhere near me.”

She doesn’t know when her new album will be released: “But I made a record that’s kind of rock-influenced, hence my mullet. This was not just a random Wednesday Tiger King haircut. This was to go with the new music, but now I’m rolling through Calabasas with a Joe Exotic mullet.”

I rolled my eyes so hard at “everything in my closets is studded or leather or latex, honey.” Every time I try to give Miley the benefit of the doubt and actually sit down to read one of her interviews, I’m reminded why she annoys me so much. She’s so try-hard, so faux hardcore. Miley easily has a closet full of her hippie beach clothes because guess what? That was her persona like two years ago. Now she’s pretending to be mullet rock chick with studs and leather? I can’t wait to see what her 2021 persona is. “Honey, everything in my closet is fairy-dresses and glitter, I can’t believe you didn’t know that.”

    I hope that’s faux leather (or at least secondhand) unless she’s faux vegan now. I seriously doubt she doesn’t own a damn black tee lol. And Warren just wants you to be yourself, honey. I hope you can figure that out someday.

    • Miumiiiu says:

      Didn’t she have a happy hippy clothing line with actual tees that weren’t black?
      Side notes: just call it pleather it’s not vegan leather, it’s not made from plants, it’s plastic made from petroleum, makes it hard to shop for genuine leather when theres no standard of what terms are used where.
      Also veganism and those LV jeans look great on her. The flap on the jeans is kinda weird but still a cute look overall

  2. emmy says:

    You’re so edgy, honey!

  3. Astrid says:

    If only she would keep her tongue in her mouth and thoughts in her head LOL

  4. Lightpurple says:

    And is her medicine cabinet full of Monistat? Stuff needs to breathe!

  5. Cate says:

    I’ve seen her tongue more than my husband’s. Put it away already.

  6. Heather says:

    No celebrity exhausts me as much as Miley Cyrus does. Give it a rest, honey!

  7. My3cents says:

    Two months into this pandemic and post quarantine, seeing her tongue out there, it’s just no. Please, that is a walking petri dish.

  8. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Oh God, this obnoxious bloody woman and her obnoxious bloody tongue… you’re not edgy, honey, because you try too desperately hard to appear so.

  9. manda says:

    oh she bugs so much. What is annoying about it is that I have genuinely fond memories of taking my now-20-year-old niece to the hannah montana concert (opened by the jonas brothers–it was a hot ticket), but her current persona just annoys.

    I do like those jeans in the bottom pic

  10. Lisa says:

    I wish she would keep her tongue to herself.

  11. julia says:

    She sends a smiley emoji every day. I’m shocked it’s not the tongue out emoji. Regardless, I’d be leaving every one of those emojis marked as “seen”. I’d never ever let myself get so bored that I’d want to have an eye rolling conversation with her.

  12. Truthiness says:

    Why is she wearing the purple oven-scrubbing gloves? Those fit exactly like oven scrubbers.

  13. grumpyterrier says:

    She so nasty.

  14. boobra says:

    what is it with that repulsive tongue?! it looks like a giant slimy slug is trying to slither it’s way out of her mouth 🤢

  15. lucy2 says:

    She is exhausting, and so very try-hard. I hope someday she actually figures herself out and can just be herself, because nothing else she tries seems authentic.

    I’m surprised she didn’t go quarantine with her family for the duration of this.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ lucy2 : I agree – she must be exhausting to spend time with. Fun at first but exhausting after a while. I love her voice and and love her in movies like “So Undercover” but as an introvert, I think I would just have to leave after a while.

  16. Mina_Esq says:

    Miley is basic and annoying, but bless her for fangirling Elizabeth Warren!

  17. whatWHAT? says:

    wow, and I thought LV logo bags were uggo. those are some heinous pants.

  18. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Being worried about clothing to wear for a meeting with the senator instead of talking points says everything.

    • Bailie says:

      Yeah, exactly, again with that nasty tongue hanging out, exhausting and gross attention w*ore.

      Miley seems so stupid, desperate, clueless, try-hard and hungry for attention, grow up, you are not 16 anymore, more like closer to 30.

      Why did she never go to school, she should educate herself for goodness sake.

      She has so many resources available to her that many don’t.

      I bet she can’t even spell ” edgy “, but “everything in my closets is studded or leather or latex, honey.”

      Yeah, she is trying hard as per usual to sell some bad music to the masses.

      How about wearing a simple white, black, navy, grey, blue, yellow, pink…t-shirt for Elizabeth Warren chat.

      What an airhead!

  19. SamSam says:

    God she is vile

  20. SJR says:

    Oooh. So tired of Miley.
    She must be exhausting IRL.

  21. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Isn’t she creeping up on 30 now?
    Grow tf up.

  22. CactusWren says:

    I kind of like her cover look here; a grungy Dolly Parton w great pops of color and killer ‘80s eye shadow.

    • NextToMe says:

      Same. I know people are annoyed by her, but I find her more authentic and less annoying than Teigan.

  23. Lucy says:

    Everything about her crazy hardcore persona (which she swears is totally real) is so incredibly non-hardcore.

  24. DenG says:

    I see she still has her tongue hanging out. I wonder if she could get through an interview or conversation without reeling it back in her mouth.

  25. Jules says:

    Here for the comments! You all have said it, I have nothing left to add.

  26. Jaded says:

    Just shut your pie-hole you vapid flea-bag.

  27. Watson says:

    Love Miley. Is she perfect? Nope, but bright minded is super fun and uplifting. It’s the kind of content i need right now.

    • Jenn says:

      Even though she doesn’t act at all her age — which, yes, is exhausting — she seems fairly well adjusted, which is not the norm for Disney kids. Her parents probably did a really good job of sticking close and protecting her. I’ve also actually heard really good things about her abilities as a talk show host, although I’ve never watched her myself.

  28. Miatagal says:

    She is so yesterday. Ugh with the tongue act.
