Miley Cyrus Said She Has “No Idea” What The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Really Like Because Of Her Privilege As A Celebrity

Miley Cyrus opened up about her time in quarantine and admitted that her experience isn’t like most peoples.

Cyrus says she has “no idea” what the pandemic is like due to her celebrity status and understands why some of the celebrities she’s asked to be on her Instagram Live Show, “Bright Minded” are hesitant to go “live” with her.

“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,” says Miley, “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.”

Since the early days of the Covid-19 crisis, Miley Cyrus has been experimenting with a new role: talk show host.⁠ ⁠ Using her iPhone, Cyrus streamed the first episode of “Bright Minded: Live with Miley,” on March 16, three days before California went into lockdown. Her first guest was her own therapist, Dr. Daniel Amen, who talked to her about anxiety in isolation. From there, the show took off. ⁠ ⁠ After an initial three-week run, she took a week off and relaunched the show on April 13 to focus on “heroes,” including @chefjoseandres, the chef who founded the @wckitchen; Dr. Oscar L. Maitas, an internal medicine specialist who discussed working on the frontlines of the crisis; and Shirley Raines, founder of @beauty2thestreetz, an organization that provides hair coloring, makeup and mobile showers to the homeless community on L.A.’s Skid Row. ⁠ ⁠ “I want to learn, and I want to listen,” she says. “I want to just pass the microphone that usually is in my hands to someone who does not [have one].” Read more at the link in bio.
