She’s unbothered! Miley Cyrus called it a “compliment” that other artists and various celebrities “hate” her.
Over the years, major names like Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Cher, Taylor Momsen, Jodie Sweetin, Katy Perry and more publicly dragged the former Disney Channel star, but Miley doesn’t let the negativity get to her.
“The amount of people that have talked s–t about my records or what I’m doing, you know, I had Cher come after me on Twitter, but that’s when I thought I had really made it. I’m like, ‘Oh, Cher gives a f–k about what I’m doing,'” the Hannah Montana alum said during a December 2020 interview with SiriusXM’s Live Transmission Christmas. Miley went on to explain that the legendary singer had a lot to say about her 2013 Bangerz era, saying, “She was mad that I was sticking my tongue out all the time and all that s–t. And I’m like, ‘Yo, I pissed Cher off, I really made it.'”
The “Wrecking Ball” singer continued, “When these legends and these icons and these artists that we look up to … f–king hate us, it’s still a compliment.”
During an interview with Cosmopolitan in October 2013, Miley spoke about her fame and why she doesn’t let the haters get to her!
“Everything is so chaotic and crazy right now and it’s so much all at once, but I’m living for it. I’m just having the best time ever, and everything’s falling into place like it’s supposed to,” she explained at the time. “Even people who want to hate on me, they can’t even shut down the fact that I’m literally what everyone is talking about. I don’t want to say that I’m on top right now — I feel like I’m kind of an underdog in a cool way. It’s almost punk rock to like me because it’s not the right thing to do. Like, society wants to shut me down.”
Specifically, Miley said that she doesn’t care when fellow celebrities throw shade.
“At the end of the day, I would say I’m a nice person, and I take pride in the fact that I treat everyone well,” the songstress said. “There’s no reason for anyone to ever come at me because I only want the best for everybody else. I have a song that’s like, ‘Stay in your lane,’ because I’m not going to be you and you’re definitely not going to be me, so don’t throw shade. I don’t ever throw shade at anyone.”
Sometimes, when a fellow artist came for Miley, she even clapped back! Scroll through our gallery to relive Miley’s past feuds.
