Well, what about this? Miley Cyrus sparked a new beef with Taylor Swift in her recent Marie Claire cover story when she took a jab at the pop singer’s star-studded “Bad Blood” music video.
“I don’t get the violence revenge thing,” the “Wrecking Ball” singer, 22, 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.”
But many of Swift’s Twitter fans were quick to point out a music video from May starring Cyrus and Zoe Kravitz for LOLAWOLF’s “Bitch.” The video, which features both girls scantily clad in bras and thongs, smoking weed and posing in exceedingly sexual positions, also features an interesting prop — a fake gun.
Kravitz pretends to shoot the gun at the camera several times and in one scene, Cyrus even points the gun at Kravitz’s head as they lip sync, “Who’s the badass bitch that nobody heard of?”
“Bad Blood” featured many of Swift’s close gal pals, including Selena Gomez, who played a friend turned enemy in the Kill Bill-esque vengeance story. The song was written about a feud between Swift and Cyrus’ pal Katy Perry.
A Cyrus source exclusively told Us Weekly that “The tone of what Miley said to Marie Claire was not meant to be insulting to Taylor. Miley was just being honest like she always is. She was saying she gets in trouble for showing her breasts and yet there is violence in another artist’s video. She was making a point but there was no ill will towards Taylor and she doesn’t hate her. She was not addressing Taylor herself, just the double standard of the video.” Insiders say that there could be tension at the 2015 MTV VMAs, which Cyrus will be hosting and Swift is set to attend. A Swift source adds, “They’re not friends.”
