In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Miley Cyrus her celebrity privilege gives her a different perspective on the coronavirus pandemic.
Miley opened up about her Instagram show “Bright Minded”, which is currently on hold, where she interviews her famous celebrity friends. She feels the current situation and her famous friends do not relate to others at this time.
“I know I’m in a unique position, and my experience with this pandemic is not like most everyone else’s in my country and around the world,” Cyrus explained. “My life has been pushed pause on, but really I have no idea what this pandemic is like.”
“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 added.
She attempted to show stories and interviews of all the frontline who are currently fighting the coronavirus in her chats with celebs like Hillary Duff, Ellen Degeneres, and Selena Gomez on “bright Minded”. Miley said many of the celebrities just ignored her DM’s asking them to be a part of the show.
She confessed, “I’m sure some people I was reaching out to felt the same way I do, which is that my experience is so rare, it almost doesn’t feel right to talk about.”
“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. Because it just doesn’t compare.”
“I’m in my sweatpants and a top knot, just like everyone else,” she said of her wardrobe choices for “Bright Minded.”
“I’ve only washed my hair twice for the show — once for Elton John and once for Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren.”
