Feud alert?! Justin Bieber mocked Miley Cyrus in a bizarre Instagram video by imitating her country twang. So how does the ‘Wrecking Ball’ songstress feel about it? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
When Justin Bieber, 22, first shared a bizarre video of himself impersonating Miley Cyrus, 23, it was questionable as to whether he was making a jab at the boisterous star or simply enjoying a little fun while on break from his Purpose tour. Justin’s wacky clip shows the pop star driving along with a friend, rocking his brand new bleached ‘do as he tries to embody Miley’s accent with a slight drawl. Curious of her response? Get the details below the jump!
Luckily, the alleged controversy ended quicker than it started. Miley “absolutely loves Justin’s video making fun of her. She thinks he sounds so ridiculous when he copies her voice, plus she’s the one that first pointed out how much they look alike,” a source reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Her and Justin have been friends for years and the best way to describe them is like two dudes in a locker room. When they hang out all they do is bust each other’s balls, Miley makes fun of Justin all the time on social media, it’s a game between them.”
The source added, “And no one makes fun of her old Miley and Mandy show more than she does so this is actually the opposite of insulting, she’s flattered he did this.” The show he references is the popular 2008 YouTube series starring Miley and Mandy Jiroux, 28, where the duo would perform various synchronized dance routines in addition to wearing coordinated outfits. Justin’s attempt to sound like the “Party in the USA” singer was pretty far fetched, but it did spark a battle of wits between the two celebs.
Biebs’ latest video for “Company” dropped on June 8, chronicling his experiences while on the road, goofing around with his friends and soaking up the sun. This also comes two days after his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez dropped her sultry, black and white video “Kill ‘Em With Kindness.” Meanwhile, Miley’s also been making headlines with reports surfacing that she may soon be marrying her on-and-off beau, 26-year-old Liam Hemsworth. Word is the pair will tie the knot in Australia…so maybe Justin could be invited!?
