Miley Cyrus Weighs In On Kanye West/ Taylor Swift VMA Incident

'He does it for press. Don't feed into it,' Cyrus says in radio interview.

[artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist] is a good friend of [artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist]‘s, so it’s fitting that she would be upset with [artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] for ruining Swift’s big moment at the VMAs on Sunday. Cyrus told Portland, Oregon, radio station Z-100 that if that had happened to her, she wouldn’t have let West steal her thunder so easily.

“I’d tell him to get off the stage. It’s her moment. For those times that you are able to tell your speech, you do it,” she said in a radio interview on Monday. “And it’s disrespectful as an artist, and I know he even said his family would not be happy if someone did that to them.”

The singer, who, despite being nominated, couldn’t attend the show because she was prepping for her tour, said that West only did it to get people’s attention and that, well, obviously it’s working. “It’s what he does it for. He does it for press. Don’t feed into it. He’s gonna get what he wants by getting to be in tabloids because of that,” she explained, adding that any apology he has offered is because of all the negative attention. “His apologies are just because he’s getting flak for it.”

In addition to weighing in on the West/Swift VMA controversy, Cyrus also commented on two other big events of the night: the performances by Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. “I heard there was some crazy stuff and I heard Beyoncé’s performance was off the chain,” she said of the woman she picked as her VMA winner last week. “People said that it was so perfect; you don’t know how it was real.”

As for Lady Gaga’s bloody and theatrical performance, well, Cyrus thinks that’s just Gaga being Gaga. “That’s why people love her! Because you never know what she’s gonna do and something unique,” she explained. “There’s no one like her. She’s bigger than life. Same thing as Beyoncé. That’s why you want to watch them. They’re so unique.”
