Kasabian have branded Miley Cyrus "a fucking nightmare of the 21st century".

The NME cover stars have slammed the music industry over their marketing of the singer. The 'Wrecking Ball' singer has courted controversy in recent months due to a number of high-profile incidents, including her much-discussed performance at the MTV VMA's when she danced with giant teddy bears and twerked on singer Robin Thicke. She has since hit out at criticism of her behaviour by claiming that she is just playing a "character".

Songwriter and guitarist Serge Pizzorno told NME: "I don't really know what that world is man. It's just a fucking money making thing. We (the music industry) created Miley Cyrus man, that's our fault. She's just a fucking accumulation of internet porn, fucking hip-hop, fucking Disney world. She's just a fucking nightmare of the 21st century."

He went on: "It's not her fault but we created that. The way she goes about her business, Twitter, all this bollocks, blows my mind."

Singer Tom Meighan, who now has a baby daughter, added: "I'll tell you something my daughter's not going to be anything like her, no way." The Leicester band also paid tribute to Chase and Status, who were among a number of artists they say influenced their forthcoming album. "Fucking Chase And Status at Reading last year was massive, beyond big. There's a lot to be learned from seeing Chase And Status, the atmosphere they generate, it's fucking energy man. It's exciting," Pizzorno said.

To read more about their forthcoming album in a new interview, lyrical references to the horsemeat scandal and their love of Death Grips, pick up a copy of the current issue which is on newsstands or available digitally now.
