Miley Cyrus is annoyed that Taylor Swift hasn’t responded to her big diss in ‘Marie Claire’ so she’s planning a whopper of a slam at the MTV VMAs Aug. 30 that T-Swift will have no choice but to react to on live TV.
Miley Cyrus has something up her sleeve for when she hosts the 2015 MTV VMAs and it’s not going to be pretty. The singer is so over Taylor Swift and her goodie goodie image that she is “dead set” on slamming Taylor at the show, according to our HollywoodLife.com insider. Taylor is nominated in several categories and will be in the audience and have no where to hide from Miley — oh no!

“Miley is dead set on providing a MTV VMA’s that people won’t stop talking about,” our source says. “She’ll be outrageous, funny and really push the envelope as long as it shocks people. Taylor is by far her biggest target and Miley is thinking of ways to subtly diss her. She loves the controversy and is upset that Taylor hasn’t said anything about it. There is bound to be sparks between the two of them that night.” It all started when Miley slammed Taylor’s Bad Blood video for being too violent in Marie Claire: “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.”
But our source tells us that Miley wasn’t trying to be mean: “The tone of what Miley said to Marie Claire was not meant to be insulting to Taylor. Miley was just being honest like she always is. She was saying she gets in trouble for showing her breasts and yet there is violence in another artist’s video. She was making a point but there was no ill will towards Taylor and she doesn’t hate her. She was not addressing Taylor herself, just the double standard of the video,” a source told Us Weekly.
“[Miley] thinks Taylor is a truly remarkable artist, and doesn’t want her comments reflecting her thoughts about what she thinks of Taylor,” adds the source. “In truth, she believes Taylor is a remarkable artist that should be celebrated for her work. She just felt that the video was in incredibly bad taste and by having all these stars advocating that, it sends out the wrong signal. Miley is a very outwardly sexual person, but she’s a hippie at heart and hates all things violent. She preaches peace to all her pals and loved ones, and that’s just how she likes it.”
