Miley Cyrus says she doesn’t want to be in Taylor Swift’s ‘squad’: ‘None of my friends are famous’

Singer previously accused Swift of not setting a 'good example' to fans

Miley Cyrus has stated that she doesn’t wish to be part of Taylor Swift’s so-called “squad”.

The singer, who hosted the MTV Video Music Awards over the weekend, discussed her counterpart’s association with a plethora of “musicians, actresses, models [and] entrepreneurs” in an interview with The New York Times.

“I’m not trying to be in the squad,” Cyrus said. “None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them.”

Cyrus continued to criticise the carefully constructed image of celebrity culture. “I put naked pictures on my Instagram – I don’t care,” she added. “It’s not interesting any more to see me like that.”

Cyrus previously accused Swift of not setting a good example to her young fans with her ‘Bad Blood’ music video.

Speaking to Marie Claire magazine, the singer said, “I don’t get the violence revenge thing. That’s supposed to be a good example? And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my titties out? I’m not sure how titties are worse than guns.”


Meanwhile, at Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, Nicki Minaj responded to recent comments made by Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus had spoken to The New York Times about Minaj’s beef with Taylor Swift, saying that it was “not very polite” of Minaj. Cyrus was quoted as saying, “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”

Accepting the award for Best Hip-Hop Video for ‘Anaconda’, Minaj said, “And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” Cyrus proceeded to suggest that her remarks had been taken out of context, but Minaj seemed to reject Cyrus’ excuses.
