Miley Cyrus says celebrities have ‘no idea’ what the coronavirus crisis is like


When it comes to the social and economic inequities highlighted by the continuing coronavirus epidemic, Miley Cyrus isn’t keeping quiet.

Miley Cyrus recently said that she was “seen-zoned” on Instagram by a number of celebs when she approached them about appearing on her upcoming talk show.

Cyrus has been holding interviews and chats with celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Dua Lipa, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez on Instagram live. She has now shifted her focus to presenting “heroes,” such as activists and medical professionals.

The 27-year-old “Mother’s Daughter” singer talked about the coronavirus pandemic’s impact and how she’s found an avenue to talk about the unknowns with her new Instagram live chat show “Bright Minded.”

“This isn’t Covid-19, what I’m experiencing. My life has been pushed pause on, but really I have no idea what this pandemic is like.”

Cyrus, who has hosted Elton John, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and even politicians like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, on her show for candid conversations about mental health and staying positive in the face of global crises, insisted she is fully aware that she is not experiencing the pandemic’s effects as others are.


“I am comfortable in my space and able to put food on my table and [I am] financially stable, and that’s just not the story for a lot of people,” she continued.

Cyrus went on to add that many of the individuals she’s invited onto her social distancing-themed Instagram Live chat program, Bright Minded, undoubtedly feel the same way.

“I’m sure a lot of the hesitation for other people saying yes to doing the show is because it almost doesn’t feel right for celebrities to share our experience,” Cyrus said. “Because it just doesn’t compare.”

She went on to say: “I do not want to be a preacher or a teacher. I want to learn, and I want to listen. I want to just pass the microphone that usually is in my hands to someone who does not [have one]. Local activists fighting for their community don’t have the platforms I have, and I wanted to share that.”

“I’m very, very cautious of ever claiming that I know best, because the one thing I know is that I don’t,” she continued.

Cyrus credits her previous hosting roles on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with giving her the knowledge and understanding of the need to stay empathetic.
