Miley Cyrus says she doesn’t have celebrity friendships

Miley Cyrus recently shared insights into her approach to celebrity friendships, highlighting her preference for “quality, not quantity.” In a candid interview with David Letterman on his series ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction’, the ‘Flowers’ singer revealed that she is not actively involved in the celebrity community.

“I’m not very active or a very active part of my community of other artists, entertainers and celebrities,” Cyrus said, reflecting on her 2024 Grammy win and performance. “It just doesn’t feel like my people when I’m in that room am.”

Despite her limited interactions, Cyrus emphasized her enduring friendship with Beyoncé. “There are certain artists like Beyoncé – who, like us, have known each other for a long time,” she noted. Recalling her performance in 2007’s “Just Stand Up,” Cyrus recalled feeling out of place among stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé. “I was sandwiched between Rihanna and Queen Bey, and they’re grown, beautiful, probably the same age as I am now. Towering over me, completely stunning,” she said.

Cyrus talked about how kind Beyoncé was to her during that time. “I’m super short, I have acne, I have braces on the backs of my teeth, and I’m standing next to Mariah Carey, who is dripping in diamonds. And Beyoncé was so nice to me,” she recalls.

When discussing her current friendships within the celebrity community, Cyrus reiterated her focus on meaningful connections. “So I’m part of my community in that way, but again, it’s all about quality, not quantity. I’m not very active in that,” she says.

In the same interview, the “Wrecking Ball” singer also opened up about her relationship with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. She acknowledged that she inherited some traits from him, including “narcissism,” amid their rumored rift. However, she also praised his connection with nature and reality. “He always did that, even when he was super famous,” she said.

Looking back on her own upbringing, Cyrus contrasted it with her father’s difficult childhood. “My childhood – I mean, we can start talking about the hard times or the problems – but I had food, I had love, I grew up in a beautiful big house and my dad didn’t have that,” she explained.

Cyrus’ approach to celebrity friendships is a testament to her desire for real connections. While she may not be an active participant in the celebrity community, she appreciates the kindness and consistency in her relationships.
