Miley Cyrus is hitting back after some inflammatory quotes attributed to her were published by Perez Hilton, denying she said anything about Beyonce.
The mohawked, tattooed singer covers the March issue of LOVE, and in it, according to Perez, she claimed that she is ready to fill Bey's shoes.
“Beyonce has been a big inspiration to me but she’s been out for such a long time," Miley allegedly said. "People are always looking for new blood."
"That’s what I bring to the game now, new blood. I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I’m just the best.”
“As Beyonce grows in motherhood and all the crap it does to your body, it will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now."
"I’m the only white female singer that could fill that slot right now and do it right, you know? I’m just the total package, you know?"
"All things must start and end and I hope to have the same success as other icons in the game when my run is over. But for now, my run is just starting.”
Wow. This would be a potentially awesome celebrity feud if Miley Cyrus really said that, but she's adamant she did not - and she's far from happy.
Miley ranted on Twitter, putting the fake quote generator on notice:
- "That quote people MADE UP about Beyonce just made me lol! Imagine if I said I got 'the looks and the curves I'm just better!' Bahahahhaha.
- "How are people allowed to make up s--t & then put quotes around it saying I said that s--t! WTF!!?!"
- "Don't worry. getting 2 the bottom of this s--t. making the liar retract the statement. U can cause ALOT of drama but NOT between me & B!"
- "Thank god I just woke up from this nightmare."
Perez Hilton has not responded to being put on blast, but the alleged quotes aren't on the LOVE website and the issue itself won't be out until February.
Clearly the Beyonce quotes didn't originate from Miley, although it's not clear if Perez BS'd them himself or if he ganked them off another gossip site.
It's possible this was meant to be a goof and some sites took it seriously, or it could've been false story deliberately fed to some celebrity outlets.
Either way, the singer is not impressed by the stunt. As for the Miley Cyrus bisexual rumors, she hasn't called those out yet, so ... just saying.
