Miley Cyrus may be up for an award herself at the 2009 Video Music Awards this Sunday, but that doesn’t mean the “7 Things” singer and “Hannah Montana” star isn’t afraid to weigh in on the big battles brewing for this Sunday’s big show: the fights for VMA supremacy between Lady Gaga and Beyoncé , and between Eminem and Kanye West .
Cyrus is placing her bets and taking sides — well at least in the girls’ fight for Moonmen. “Beyoncé is just, like, a living legend,” the 16-year-old told MTV News about why she thinks that B should take home more trophies than Lady Gaga. “So, that’s why I feel like everything she is up for, she so deserves it.”
Now, what about the guys? Well, it seems that Cyrus is less discerning and can’t pick one over the other as easily. “Kanye and Eminem — I don’t know who I think would win. I like both their music a lot,” she explained. And with four nominations each, they very well could take home an equal number of prizes.
But Cyrus, who also happens to be a budding clothing designer when she’s not topping the box office or the album charts, very easily picked who she thinks will be the best dressed of the night: the always avant-garde Gaga .
“You never know what Lady Gaga will wear,” Cyrus said. “That’s what I love about her. She’s always surprising people, and she definitely gets mad respect for that.”
