Ed Sheeran Slams Miley Cyrus Feud After VMAs Drama, Says He's "Never Met Her"
All good? Although Miley Cyrus was caught calling Ed Sheeran an "a--hole" while he accepted the MTV VMA for Best Male Video of the Year for "Sing," the British singer told Ryan Seacrest that he has no beef with the "Wrecking Ball" singer.
In case you missed it, while en route to the stage to accept his Moonman this past Sunday, Sheeran reached out for high-fives and Cyrus was undeniably caught mouthing "a--hole" as he passed by her. Sheeran, however, says he is unfazed by the diss. "Well, I don’t know why people were expecting that [high-five]. I’ve never met her," he told Seacrest on Wednesday, Aug. 27 when asked about the drama. "There was a high-five between me and Scooter [Braun] because I know him, and that was the only high-five. I don’t know what people were expecting," he added.
Taylor Swift's BFF went on to dispel any bad blood. "I think she’s a fantastic artist," he said of the twerking queen. "I think she’s got a great voice, writes great songs."
Back in September 2013, Sheeran had a different point of view and made headlines when he called Cyrus’ MTV VMAs showstopping moment a "stripper's move" to The Mirror. "If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn’t want her twerking," he said. "When I first heard 'Wrecking Ball,' I thought it was a brilliant song. But the video distracts too much from it."
