Courtney Love is on Team Miley.

With the 20-year old artist under heavy flak for an arguably racist VMA routine – followed by a raunchy, naked “Wrecking Ball” video – the former Hole singer told The New York Post last night that critics have been too hard on Cyrus.

“That hillbilly Miley Cyrus is sort of punk in a weird sex way,” Love told the crowd at the Dream Downtown during a set to celebrate Scott Lipps’ book “PopLipps,” adding of Miley’s infamous Video Music Awards performance:

“It was openly sexual…  like dark and hillbilly and [bleeped] up.”


Sure, we guess.

Love, however, had far less kind things to say about Katy Perry and Robin Thicke.

Katy Perry bores the [bleep] out of me,” she told the newspaper. “She’s a nice girl, she just really bores me.”

As for Thicke, Miley’s “Blurred Lines” duet partner? Love isn’t a fan.

“Can someone inform me who Alan Thicke’s son is?” she asked. “Like what? Wasn’t [he on] Charles in Charge? That’s like Jared Leto trying to convince me he’s a rock star.”
