Miley Cyrus Bashes Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Video for Featuring Guns: ‘I’m Not Sure How Titties are Worse’

Miley Cyrus is angry at the reception accorded Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, claiming in a recent interview that the star-studded video inappropriately glorifies guns and violence.

In the cover story for this month’s issue of Marie Claire, the former Disney channel actress-turned hyper-sexualized pop star questioned why Swift’s video has gotten so much buzz (along with an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Video of the Year), while her own onstage nudity gets her in trouble with critics.

“I don’t get the violence revenge thing. That’s supposed to be a good example?” Cyrus, who is hosting the VMAs this year, said of Swift’s video. “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.”

Cyrus also pointed to rapper Kendrick Lamar, who collaborated with Swift on “Bad Blood,” as an example of how the music industry perpetuates sexism.

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

The 22-year-old singer also discussed her work with the Happy Hippie Foundation, a nonprofit organization she started earlier this year that focuses on assisting homeless LGBT youth. Cyrus pointed to her own gender identity when discussing the reason she started the organization.

“A lot of us are born into some sh*t, you know what I mean?” the “Wrecking Ball” singer said. “Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about my being gender-fluid and gender-neutral. And some people snarl at that. They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess. But I just don’t care to be that person.”

In addition to the Video of the Year nomination, “Bad Blood” was nominated for six other VMAs at this year’s event, which will be broadcast live on Sunday, August 30 on MTV.

The new issue of Marie Claire is on newsstands August 18.
