Elton John Praises Miley Cyrus, Thinks Liam Hemsworth is Hot

by at .

Elton John would like to clarify his opinion on Miley Cyrus.

A few days after saying the singer is a "meltdown waiting to happen," John appeared on Ellen yesterday and actually defended the 20-year old. He spoke very highly of her.

"'Lt me tell you what worked at the VMAs," the veteran artist said of Miley's infamous performance. "The whole purpose of VMAs - when you got all these big artists competing against each other for attention - is to flatten the opposition. She flattened the opposition."

John went on to praise Miley's charity work - while admitting he isn't a fan of her prominent tongue - and added that she's clearly doing something right because "nobody talked about anybody else except Miley. She has two records in the top ten, the number one single."

And the "Candle in the Wind" crooner also had very positive things to say about Miley's ex, Liam Hemsworth. At least on the physical appearance front.

"I'll take her old boyfriend," the married gay man joked. "As the French say, 'A bit on the side.' He's gorgeous."
