Miley Cyrus is just callin’ it like she sees it. The outspoken songstress aired her grievances in the September issue of Marie Claire, and chief among them is the public’s perception of fellow pop artist Taylor Swift.

“I don’t get the violence revenge thing,” she told the magazine. “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.”

In the interview, Cyrus, 22, is referencing Swift’s latest music video for “Bad Blood,” in which one woman (Swift) plots her revenge on a former friend played by Selena Gomez. (Though fans previously speculated that the song was written about Cyrus, sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the tune was in fact written about Swift’s former pal, Katy Perry.)

But Cyrus’ complaints about the music industry don’t stop with Swift. The “Wrecking Ball” singer also slammed the double standards that run rampant within the field.

“There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it,” she said. “Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore.”

Cyrus explained she’s reached a point where she doesn’t “really stress too much” about what the public thinks of her.

“There’s nothing left to catch me doing,” she told the magazine. “You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I’ll just f——g put them up.”

Cyrus is set to host the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.
