Miley Cyrus Calls Out Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' Video: 'That's Supposed to Be a Good Example?'
By Emily Krauser
Miley Cyrus won't be joining Taylor Swift's girl squad anytime soon.
The Happy Hippie has received a lot of flack for frequently posting topless photos on Instagram and running around Los Angeles wearing very little clothing, but Cyrus doesn't think there's anything wrong with showing off her the female body.
In fact, she opened up about baring her boobs in the September issue of Marie Claire, explaining that the violent imagery seen in Swift's "Bad Blood" music video was far worse than someone seeing her naked body.
"I don't get the violence revenge thing," Cyrus said of Swift's vid. "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."
Who knew bad blood would end up covering so many of Swift's former friends?
The two were on friendly terms for years, working on various projects together. Swift had a cameo in 2009's Hannah Montana: The Movie, and that same year, they sang Swift's song "Fifteen" at the GRAMMYs. The singers have gone very separate ways over the past six years, though both did date within the Kennedy family -- Swift dated Connor Kennedy in 2012, and Cyrus was with his cousin, Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick, in 2014.
There was even speculation that "Bad Blood" was about Cyrus, but the song was later revealed to be a pointed dig at Swift's now-nemesis Katy Perry.
The 22-year-old singer has frequently pointed out that she's slammed for nudity, as well as for being outspoken and doing the same things that many of her fellow celebrities, both male and female, are doing. She continued this candid conversation in the interview, slamming the misogyny she's seen in the industry.
"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."
There's not a lot anyone can do to drag Cyrus down, however. In fact, if anyone tries, she's prepared to look them right in the eye -- well, at least on her Instagram feed.
"I don't really stress too much about being out there," she says about just being herself. "There's nothing left to catch me doing. You want to hack my e-mail so you can find my nude pictures? I'll just f**king put them up."
