Miley Cyrus is one optimistic artist. Despite facing criticisms from fellow musicians, the “Plastic Hearts” singer talked about how she’s handling hate by keeping a positive spirit.
During an interview with Billy Idol during SiriumXM’s Live Transmission Christmas, the singer revealed, “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.'”
She also mentioned that it all started during her rebellious Bangerz days. According to her, Cher got mad that she was always sticking her tongue out and for doing other kinds of s—t. She explained, “And I’m like, ‘Yo, I pissed Cher off, I really made it.'”
The former Disney star is taking every easy and viewed the insults as compliments. She added, “When these legends and these icons and these artists that we look up to… f–king hate us, it’s still a compliment.”
In 2013, Miley delivered a rather scandalous performance during the MTV VMAs together with Robin Thicke. Back then, Cher told E! News how she wanted Miley to be better and do better. She also mentioned, “I don’t give a s–t if she comes out naked.”
The 74-year-old music icon also said on why Miley’s acting all provocative, “Maybe she’s thrilled and delighted—everyone’s talking about it.” She also took to Twitter to share her thoughts in detail and even said she wished she could keep her opinionated mouth shut.
Aside from Cher, Miley also encountered other haters during her Bangerz era. She received hateful messages from fans of other artists particularly the Swifties and Selenators who’ve sent her death threats.- Advertisement -
She took to Twitter in 2013 to write, “Everyday someone with a Swift or Gomez in [their] name wishes terrible things upon me (death is popular). Please Smilers don’t ever think somehow you are supporting me by being hateful towards other artist.”
Miley Cyrus will keep doing her own thing. From being a Disney star playing Hannah Montana for years to being the kind of artist she wants to be perceived by the world.
