Miley has gotten a lot of grief over her twerk-filled performance at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 25, and now it looks like her ex Nick has joined the list of critics, saying he ‘laughed’ at her act in a surprising new interview.
We’ve heard a lot of words used to describe Miley Cyrus‘s raunchy VMAs performance, but “funny” wasn’t one of them — until now. Jonas Brothers singer Nick Jonas, who dated Miley from 2005 to 2007, is speaking out about his ex-girlfriend’s antics at the VMAs. Read on to see what he had to say!
Nick Jonas: Miley Cyrus’ VMA Performance Was ‘Funny’ — Ex Slams Twerking
Nick, 21, gave Miley, 20, a pretty backhanded compliment in a new interview with OUT MAGAZINE. Even though he acknowledges her talent, apparently he finds her recent actions laughable!
“She’s smart. She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her. She’ll always be successful. [The performance] was funny — I was laughing,” Nick says.
His brother, Joe Jonas, 24, was even harsher in the interview, saying, “It wasn’t my favorite performance of hers. I think that there’s one way of saying you’ve grown up, and there’s another way — I think that’s her way. Look, people are talking about it, so I think it’s working for what she wants.”
Ouch! While Miley might not be thrilled to hear Nick and Joe aren’t fans of her performance, we’re pretty sure she’s not going to let their rude remarks get her down. She’s one tough woman!
Miley Cyrus: The Truth About Her Feelings For Nick Jonas
Nick caught the attention of hundreds of thousands of women when he posted a shirtless selfie to Instagram on July 30 — including his ex Miley! Even though she was engaged to Liam Hemsworth at the time, Miley said she was a “really big fan” of the photo, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“She has joked with friends saying, ‘Where was this a few years ago!’ She thinks he looks super hot,” the source said.
This made us wonder if Miley still had feelings for Nick.
“It’s good to have the memories,” the source added. “And these pictures.”
Well, it seems like Miley has nothing but nice things to say about Nick, so it wasn’t very cool of him to diss her twerking! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Nick have made fun of Miley? Did YOU think her performance was funny? Let us know!
