Uh-oh, is Miley Cyrus a hypocrite?! The singer criticized Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ video for its use of guns and violence, but just three months earlier, she was toting around weapons in a music video, as well!
Miley Cyrus, 22, made it clear she doesn’t approve of the violence used in Taylor Swift’s music video for “Bad Blood,” but did she forget that she, too, once played with guns in a video!? The “Wrecking Ball” singer may be totally eating her words now that her own violent music video has resurfaced!

The 22-year-old appeared in LOLAWOLF’s “Bitch” video with Zoe Kravitz, 26, in May, and in the clip, she wears her bra and underwear while posing in sexual positions, and even fooling around with guns. At one point, she even pointed the weapon RIGHT at her pal’s head!
The ladies were obviously just having fun in the video, but it poses a bit of a problem for Miley, who just totally dissed Taylor for using violence in her vid. “I don’t get the violence revenge thing,” she told Marie Claire. “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.”
Luckily, the “Style” singer has been able to laugh Miley’s comments off, for the most part. “Saying things like this is so typical of Miley,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is desperate for attention and will do anything to get it. It must kill Miley that Taylor has gotten so much attention for “Bad Blood.” In Taylor’s mind, Miley is just being jealous. She wants the spotlight on her and taking shots at Taylor is a good way to do it.”
Miley Cyrus & Taylor Swift: Confrontation At VMAs
For the most part, Miley and Taylor are able to avoid each other — let’s be real, they run in different crowds — but they will likely come face-to-face at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30, because Miley is hosting and Taylor is up for a slew of trophies.
“Taylor doesn’t know why Miley suddenly has a problem with her, but she’d rather not get into it with her,” our source added. “She hates that Miley is hosting the VMAs and that they will be forced to interact. Taylor will confront her...but she’s dreading it.”
