Miley Cyrus won’t be joining Taylor Swift’s celebrity all-star girl squad anytime soon. Cyrus, who hosted Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, dissed the “Blank Space” singer and her star-studded posse, saying she has absolutely no interest in trying to gather “musicians, actresses, models [and] entrepreneurs” to be in her group of friends.
“I’m not trying to be in the squad. None of my friends are famous and not because of any reason other than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them,” the 22-year-old pop star said in an interview with the New York Times about her surprise album “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.”
Some of Swift’s gal pals include “Girls” actress Lena Dunham, “Empire” star Serayah, model/actress Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Hailee Steinfeld. Cyrus explained that she would rather spend her free time at her house working on music, smoking weed and playing with her pets.
As previously reported, this isn’t the first time the “Wrecking Ball” singer has slammed Swift. Earlier this month, she told Marie Claire she didn’t think Swift’s “Bad Blood” video was a “good example.”
“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 t--- out? I’m not sure how t--- are worse than guns.”
Also during Sunday’s VMA awards show, Cyrus got into a little tiff with Nicki Minaj when the rapper accepted the award for Best Hip-Hop Video for “Anaconda.” After thanking her fans for their support, Minaj called Cyrus a "b----" for her “not so nice” comments she made in an interview about the rapper’s feud with Swift. Cyrus claimed her words were taken out of context and continued hosting the VMAs, but a source told E! Online the singer was “p----d” and started cursing and yelling backstage.
