Miley Cyrus Defends Lorde as "Awesome," Tells Fans to Chill with Death Threats

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus may have the number-one song on the Billboard Hot 100.

But she no longer has the top spot on iTunes.

That honor now belongs to Lorde, a 16-year old whose single overtook "We Can't Stop" yesterday and who Tweeted about the achievement excitedly... with one caveat.

  • Miley Cyrus Visits London
  • Lorde Singer

“wo #1 on US itunes," Lorde wrote. "even if it lasts an hour i feel HAPPY. downside is all these miley fans telling me they’re gonna stab my rotting corpse.”

Cyrus, to her credit, learned of her fans giving this rising artist a hard time and jumped to her defense on Twitter, writing last night:

“@lordemusic why r people so mean??? Ps your music is awesome.”

Miley, of course, can relate to folks being mean these days. She continues to be under fire for her lewd MTV Video Music Awards performance and her naked Wrecking Ball video.

Of the former, Cher recently said "she can't dance [and] her body looked like hell."

Ouch, harsh stuff, Cher. Very harsh stuff.

What I heard Lorde said about Miley, was quite true. The part about her growing up with money and fame, which obviously made her not able to look at life from the same perspective as a random school girl. But both sides, these fans are immature. Madly immature. Don't say anything on the internet, you wouldn't say in real life. If you would say such, get help! I don't like Miley though. Very desperate.

I would skip the death threats and go right ahead and kill them both, they should die in a fire and suffer since their music sucks a whales cock

The fans do go OTT these days. Death threats have no place in the music scene. It's done because people can say whatever and hide behind behind the net. Not only is it bad taste and sportsmanship, but I believe threatening people lives is a felony.
