Is Miley Cyrus coming for Beyoncé? Not so fast, says Miley. The pop star is shooting down rumors that she dissed Mrs. Carter.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer reportedly told U.K. magazine LOVE that she was ready to take the crown from Queen Bey. Gossip website Hollywood Life published the quotes and later removed the article.
“Beyoncé has been a big inspiration to me but she’s been out for such a long time,” she was quoted as saying. “She’s so talented and I think she’s at the top of the game now but people are always looking for new blood and that’s what I bring to the game now, new blood.”
She added, “I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I’m just the best.”
In the fabricated interview, she also said that motherhood has taken its toll on Bey. “As Beyoncé grows in motherhood and all the crap it does to your body, it will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now,” she said. “I’m the only white female singer that could fill that slot right now and do it right, you know?”
But after the quotes gained traction on the Internet and outrage grew, Miley fired back on Twitter, denying the controversial comments.
“That quote people MADE UP about Beyonce just made me lol! Imagine if I said I got ‘the looks and the curves I’m just better!’ Bahahahhaha,” she said. “How are people allowed to make up shit & then out quotes around it saying I said that shit! WTF!!?!”
She planned to take action against the person spreading the false statements. “don’t worry. getting 2 the bottom of this shit. making the liar retract the statement. U can cause ALOT of drama but NOT between me & B!”
UPDATE: LOVE magazine has confirmed that the quotes were fake.
“@MileyCyrus never said anything to us about Beyonce, the quotes were made up and we’re trying to get to the bottom of where this came from,” said the magazine via Twitter. “WE ALL LOVE BEYONCE.”
