Kelly Clarkson Denies Calling Miley Cyrus A 'Pitchy Stripper'

Kelly clarifies a VMA subtweet.

Kelly Clarkson is sticking true to the first rule of subtweeting: Don't name the person you're subtweeting.

When Kelly hit up "Watch What Happens Live," she neither confirmed nor denied that she had called Miley Cyrus a "pitchy stripper" during the VMAs. Kelly had tweeted the words during the show, but fans came to their own conclusions about whom she was speaking.

Of course, when pressed by host Andy Cohen, Clarkson wouldn't say who she was tweeting about. Nicki Minaj? Katy Perry? Nope. Kelly kept mum.

But she had no problem spilling details about her relationship with "American Idol" contestant Justin Guarini. "We did date a little bit," she said of her co-star in the big-screen flop "From Justin To Kelly" and the runner-up during the inaugural "Idol" season. "I think any two people who are thrown together that much [would date]."
