Shade alert! Miley Cyrus is all set to host the VMAs– even though she doesn’t know much about who’s nominated! The singer pretty clearly insulted this year’s nominees when she admitted she doesn’t listen to their music!
Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” music video was, like, one of the biggest things ever, but Miley Cyrus hasn’t even seen it! Miley, 22, will host the Video Music Awards on Aug. 30, but that doesn’t mean she’s been catching up on this year’s biggest moments in music videos. In fact, Miley pretty blatantly dissed Taylor, as well as a ton of this year’s other noms when she confessed that she’s not a fan of any of their work!
Not only does Miley not really enjoy the nominated artists, she wasn’t even aware of who had received the nominations. In an interview with the New York Times, Miley admitted that, “I don’t even really know too much of what’s nominated.”
Uh, Miley, you know you’re like hosting the VMAs, right? The interviewer attempted to jog her memory, telling her, “’Anaconda‘” is nominated for some, ‘Bad Blood,’ Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Alright,’ Ed Sheeran…” Miley, however, didn’t seem too concerned about studying up.
“I like what Kendrick does,” she said. “I don’t really know many of these. I don’t really listen to this music. I’m probably the most disconnected host in history. I don’t have TV. I have Apple TV. I’m so the 22-year-old that’s like, ‘Who’s TV?'” Well, at least she’s totally honest! Plus, we know for fact we’re going to be in for a seriously interesting show this year, and that’s always a good thing, right?
Do you think Miley was dissing Taylor Swift and the other artists? Do you think she’ll be a good VMAs host, or should someone who doesn’t know the nominees not host?
