At Least Miley Cyrus Realizes Her Privilege Is Keeping Her From Seeing the Consequences of COVID-19

There has been a lot of “woe is me” coming from celebrities on lockdown in their giant mansions because of the coronavirus. At least the ones who aren’t having a nervous breakdown in slow motion. So it’s refreshing to hear from someone who knows that they don’t actually have it bad in any way.

I had no idea Miley Cyrus had it in her to be self-aware, but Page Six reports she does realize how much better she has it than everyone else.

“I know I’m in a unique position, and my experience with this pandemic is not like most everyone else’s in my country and around the world,” she told WSJ. magazine. “My life has been pushed pause on, but really I have no idea what this pandemic is like. 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.”

Basically the worst thing that’s happened to Cyrus is she’s having trouble getting people to appear on her podcast.

“I’m sure a lot of the hesitation for other people saying yes to doing the show is because it almost doesn’t feel right for celebrities to share our experience,” she said. “Because it just doesn’t compare.”

I’m guessing they saw incredibly poorly Nancy Pelosi came off pulling $12 pints of ice cream from one of her two $10,000 refrigerators with James Corden and don’t want to look as clueless as she did.

Which is good, actually. It’s great to see celebrities with some common sense around how people are suffering, since so many of them seem to have none.
