Miley Cyrus is sticking to her guns.

The singer appeared on the Today show Friday morning to discuss her work on The Voice and her new Woody Allen series, Crisis in Six Scenes, but also opened up about her recent announcement that she would no longer be walking red carpets. In Elle's October issue, the Hannah Montana alum said she realized there are more important things she could be doing with her time than posing for others.

"Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that's red? Because I'm 'important'? Because I'm 'famous'?" she asked. "That's not how I roll. It's like a skit—it's like Zoolander."

While talking with Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie Friday morning, she clarified her comments but also emphasized that she meant what she told the magazine.

"It's really not about the color of the carpet. It's more about, especially women, we get yelled at to blow them a kiss, and I don't feel like blowing you a kiss," she explained.

"[The photographers] yell, 'Blow us a kiss!' Like what is going on? Who are you? And then you're just kind of putting yourself out there for people to talk."

She continued, "I don't want people to talk about what I'm wearing. That's usually why I don't wear too much, but they make me wear clothes on The Voice and on the Today show, so this is what I chose."

The "Wrecking Ball" songstress also briefly talked about Liam Hemsworth when Savannah brought up the amazing #TBT photo he shared of the two of them last week. Savannah inquired about the three rings Miley was wearing, two of which happened to be "cute" accessories. The third, however, was the engagement ring Liam gave to Miley a couple of years ago. When asked, Cyrus simply said, "I didn't pick this out."

Way to play it coy, Miley!
