Miley Cyrus has thrown major shade at fellow singer Mariah Carey – revealing she’s never really liked her! AWKS!

Yep, Miley admitted to Elle magazine: “I’ve never really been a fan, because it’s so much about Mariah Carey. That’s part of her shtick.”

She even claims she “can see right through” Mariah’s persona. “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 insists her image “isn’t about me” but about sharing her story instead. “It’s about someone being connected to what I’m saying.”

And now that she’s a coach on The Voice, Miley is urging her contestants to remain genuine…

“I want to help these singers,” she said.

“[A producer says to me], ‘Shut the f— up! You’re at 20 minutes!’ I’m like, what are you going to do – kick out these two 16-year-olds from Arkansas when they’re still pitchy? If I’m here, I’m going to do it for real. I’m not acting; I’m not playing me.”

You go, sista!
