Miley Cyrus SLAMS Mariah Carey: What a Phony!

by at .

Miley Cyrus isn't just a coach on The Voice this year.

She's making her actual voice heard!

And we have a feeling that a certain legendary diva won't like what that voice is saying.

Miley Cyrus as a Rocker

Featured on the cover of October's issue of Elle, Cyrus opens up about a number of topics.

We've discussed a pair of them already:

FIRST, Miley says she won't walk on any more red carpet until world hunger is no longer an issue.

SECOND, Miley says she was severely underpaid and underappreciated on Hannah Montana, but she was too young, naive and excited at the time to notice or care.

And now, in a newly-shared excerpt from her interview, Cyrus sets her sights on Mariah Carey.

"I’ve never really been a fan, because it’s so much about Mariah Carey. That’s part of her shtick; I can see through that,” Cyrus told the magazine.

She said this after also telling a contestant on The Voice that not everyone can be Mariah.

But she didn't seem to mean it as a compliment at the time.

She was telling the contestant to be more authentic.

“That’s part of what makes her a gay icon; like, it’s about Mimi! It’s about what she’s wearing, and it’s about her," Miley added.

"What I make isn’t about me. It’s about sharing my story; it’s about someone being connected to what I’m saying."

Mariah Carey and Her Ring

It certainly is true that you can say many unflattering things about Miley Cyrus if you so desire.

But you can't call her fake or phony.

She's gonna stick her tongue out or smoke pot or thrust her crotch all around and remain true to herself at all times.

Miley had something to say about another pop singing icon as well.

She wondered whether Britney Spears "knows how to text," which seemed a bit random, and then told Elle:

“Every time [Britney] puts out new music, I’m like, is that what she wants to be doing? Or does she just want to chill? She’s looking so good right now, and looking happy."

If her point here is that Spears has seemed happier away from the spotlight, it's a valid question to ask.

But she's raking it in by performing in Las Vegas. We're talking millions and millions of dollars per year.

So we're guessing she's pretty happy at the moment.

Back to Mariah, though.

Just because Cyrus brought it up, we'll take the bait and ask:
