Miley Cyrus says Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ video doesn’t set a ‘good example’

Swift's clip criticised for its displays of violence

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

The ‘Bad Blood’ clip was released in May and has been viewed 422 million times so far. It features cameos from Kendrick Lamar, Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Ellie Goulding, Paramore singer Hayley Williams and more as part of a Swift-led army.

Speaking to Marie Claire magazine, Cyrus 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.”

Cyrus was referring to her controversial video for ‘Wrecking Ball’, which saw the singer straddling a demolition ball.

Taylor Swift recently took to Tumblr to post a message to a fan in an attempt to cheer her up.


The fan, called Stormie, had posted a message describing how she felt alone and was scared ahead of her first day of school.

In response, Swift sent the fan a number of messages of support and encouragement.

“I hate that you’re feeling this way and it’s so hard not to dwell on our fears and doubts,” the singer wrote.

“It’s scary but it’s also the wildest, most thrilling part of life. Just when you think it’s going to get worse, it could get better instead. It WILL.”

Swift added: “You’ve always been there with kind, thoughtful words for me when I’m down and I just need you to know how important you are.”

“Knowing your worth sometimes comes without any proof at all. You’re worth more than flaky friends and people who dismiss you, or underestimate you. Sometimes it seems like that’s all you get, but it’s not all you’ll ever get. Believe that. Love you.”
