Miley Cyrus Disses Rebecca Black & Bieber — YouTube Doesn't Make You A Star!

Tue, March 29, 2011 3:26pm EDT by 106 Comments

Miley appears to be no fan of the YouTube sensation — is she afraid of the competition?

Miley Cyrus seems to be having some trouble dealing with her decreased popularity following the end of Hannah Montana, and taking it out on Rebecca Black! Miley spoke with the Daily Telegraph and said of the young singing sensation, “It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour.” Ouch!

Miley seems to forget however that there is one major star who got his big break of YouTubeJustin Bieber! Justin’s videos were what first caught the attention of record labels, and there seem to be more and more young stars just like him these days!

What do you think of Miley’s statement HollywoodLifers — is she right or just being bitter?

I love Miley Cyrus and love her so much. This interview is all twisted. Not once does Miley mention the names of stars that have gotten it easy off you tube, so clearly the reporters were thinking Rebecca got easy fame. An with Justin Bieber, he might have gotten noticed off youtube but had to go through so much before he became a “real” artist and even big. So it’s not like he had an easy life to just get off youtube and the next day on tour. Miley Cyrus’ words were very true and she is a true artist and I admire her. I don’t get why media wants to tear her down and make her look bad and they are clearly twisting her words and what she really means. Miley’s true fans are behind her every step of the way, and I love her for who she is. She is herself and she is 18 and I am 19 and I know what it’s like, not being famous but everything us teenage girls have to face, our mood swings, trying to figure out who we really are, and all that. Miley is a strong person and I know that because I am a tru fan & I really love her.

Miley is a washed up pop star she has no room to talk no one likes her any more Justin is a great singer and in my opinion A LOT more famous then Miley so obviously you tube can make you famous and also the only reason she is famous is because of her daddy not her talent

She needs to check out the people around her & leave these people alone. Look for the betrayers in your camp Miley.

Could’nt care less about Cyrus, it seems to me every new celebrity is always critisized by her. Just because her life is failing and rubbish right now why does she have to bring the others down with her?

You also shouldn’t get famous just because you have a famous daddy… lets be honest… miley cyrus has no talent, cant act, and isn’t much of a singer… So with out her dad she would be a nobody right now.
I personally dont think Rebecca Black should be famous cuz i dont think she has much talent either, but Miley Cyrus shouldn’t take her anger out on upcoming stars just because they are getting more attention then her.

Yeah, Charice is also a You Tube star, and a very very talented one, great singer and performer. She is the epitome of the word “singer” and her craft is the epitome of the word “music”. What’s happening to the music industry now? C’mon, you can do better! Bring on the real talented singers.

“It should be harder to be an artist.” – Miley Cyrus

Newsflash Miley! We’ve all thought the same about you. If your dad wasn’t already famous when you popped out…you wouldn’t be famous either. Put that in your bong and smoke it.

OK is true ,Miley shouldn’t start criticizing, but her opinion is right… i mean a singer must to have more than a video camera and some lyrics a real singer must to have talent and voice and personality that makes listeners love them from the first moment!And a lot of hard, hard work before we call them artists!!!(*Just sayin*)

All you haters need to hop off Miley’s tip, and let her be. It amazes me how people will attack this girl for something as small as giving her opinion. Rebecca’s song was horrible, period. I know that, Miley knows that, and so do you haters, so pipe down. Miley didn’t need her dad to get her nowhere. She did it by working hard and staying focused on what it was she was after. So all this talk about how she’s where she is today due to her dad is so ludacris. Just because she gives her honest opinion in no way depicts her as jealous nor bitter. Just like the whole issue with her saying she wasn’t a fan of Twilight. People attacked her for that. I mean, come on, if she doesn’t like Twilight, she doesn’t like it, Twihards, get over it. I’m a fan of Miley’s and I’m addressing the haters in advance and tellin’ ya’ll to get a life. That is all.

she has some nerve, was she or was she not riding the coat tails of her father’s success when she got her big break on the Disney Channel. she didn’t have to try too hard.

Well, she’s sorta right- Rebecca Black is not a good singer. But, I think its good that there are so many more opportunities for singers to get out there. I mean, it was easy for her since her dad has connections, but other young stars don’t have it so good. YouTube is one way to make it easier on them.

The only one dissing Justin and Rebecca is Hollywoodlife, stop the Miley hate and be done with it. It’s just reflecting bad on you, though that’s probably what you want.

Wanting to appear as lesser human beings to the world is something that’s lost on me but that’s your choice.

This girl is a twit. She got her music career off the back of her Disney show! I certainly didn’t see her slogging it out on the live circuit trying to get a record deal. She even HAD a youtube account called Miley and Mandy for ages (which was atrocious – Miley’s speaking voice could strip paint off walls) but her channel has long since fallen from the top 20 off the youtube most subscribed so now she’s all anti youtube. Her time in the sun is done, her last album didn’t gel, and she’s on her way out. Deal with it you precocious little brat. (yeah I admit it – never been big on Miley!).

Rebecca and Justin are horrible but seriously Miley you’re no better. You’re only famous because of your daddy so do yourself a favor and shut that bitter mouth of yours.

She made her daddy famous (again), not the other way around. Miley has made some mistakes, but look at her work “The Last Song”, an incredible performance by her (if you haven’t seen the movie then do so and then judge her). Check out “Bolt” too. A very fun family flick..and she is, once again, the star.

She’s got acting chops and she’s got the ability to make it work. She’s going to be around for a while.
