Miley Cyrus attends the 'China: Through The Looking Glass' Costume Institute Benefit Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2015 in New York City.

In Elle’s October cover story, Miley Cyrus opens up about her new stint on NBC’s The Voice, how she wants Britney Spears to be happy and why she’ll never walk another red carpet again.

In a preview -- with the full issue hitting newsstands next week -- Cyrus discusses her decision to no longer participate in red carpets. After walking the red carpet for the premiere of A Very Murray Christmas last year, the singer decided it would be her last.

“When people are starving, am I on a carpet that's red? Because I'm 'important'? Because I'm 'famous'? That's not how I roll. It's like a skit -- it's like Zoolander."

She then reveals her go-to advice for her contestants on The Voice: Be like Bernie Sanders. “Be the person people want and love. Don’t worry about the masses. That’s how you make a memorable moment.”

Cyrus also addresses her friendship with Britney Spears. “She's a little distant in her world. I just want Britney to be happy. Every time she 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."
