Miley Comes for Taylor Swift: 'I Don't Get the Violence Revenge Thing'
In a September 2015 Marie Claire cover story, Miley Cyrus is pulling no punches when it comes to industry sexism and the criticism she gets compared to Taylor Swift.
Explaining to the magazine that she feels singled out when critics attack her for letting her hair—and her top—down occasionally, Miley called out Swifty's "Bad Blood" video:
"I don't get the violence revenge thing. That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my titties out? I'm not sure how titties are worse than guns."
That being said, Miley has wielded a fake gun herself. Us Weekly points out that Cyrus pointed a gun at Zoe Kravitz in LOLAWOLF's “B**ch” music video, which debuted in May.
Will this launch a new war of words with Taylor? May the breast woman win!
Miley also complained to Marie Claire about sexist attitudes in the music industry, which seems to reward male singers and disapprove of female singers for doing exactly the same things.
"There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it," Miley says. "Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he's cool. I do it and I'm a druggie whore."
Cyrus also looked back at her days on "Hannah Montana," revealing the experience may have led to some body issues.
"From the time I was 11, it was, 'You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing.' Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup," she said. "It was like 'Toddlers & Tiaras.' I had f**king flippers."
She added, "I was told for so long what a girl is supposed to be from being on that show. I was made to look like someone that I wasn't, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, Who the f**k am I?"
The issue, in which she also talks up her Happy Hippie Foundation, hits newsstands August 18.
