Kelly finally opened up about her controversial Aug. 26 ‘pitchy stripper’ tweet in a new interview! The tweet was heavily thought to be aimed at Miley’s shocking VMA performance. While Kelly did compliment Miley in the interview — she didn’t exactly own up to admitting the tweet was about her. What’s your opinion, HollywoodLifers?
Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Pitchy Stripper’ Diss — Was It Aimed At Miley Cyrus?
It’s never too late to apologize — and Kelly, 31, kind of offered a small mea culpa to Miley! After receiving tons of criticism for tweeting about “pitchy strippers” performing during the VMAs, people obviously took that as a major diss against Miley!
Kelly sat down with Extra on Oct. 10 to set the record straight on what she meant by her dig.
“Pitchy strippers…It was more me just being funny. I guess I saw about six performances from [the VMAs] and I was just being funny,” said Kelly. “Everybody says stuff and I didn’t even put names on it. People did not think it was funny. I did. That’s ok, I make myself laugh.”
But even though Kelly thought she was being funny, didn’t she think her offensive tweet would be taken as a diss against Miley!
“That’s not my fault. I didn’t say any names. I’m not dragging anyone’s name in the mud. Everybody’s art is their art. I was just simply expressing my artistic point of view. Ain’t nothing wrong with being a stripper, maybe be on key. Be the best dang stripper you can be,” Kelly stated.
It doesn’t sound like she’s denying that the diss was aimed at Miley at all, even though she slightly backtracked on her statement! Looks like she’s keeping mum on her slam — and sticking to her thoughts regarding strippers!
So what does Kelly think about Miley’s music?
“My favorite [song] is actually ‘Wrecking Ball.’ I love that song. That’s a killer song. And I just love the intimacy.”
And what about her thoughts on Miley’s Oct. 5 Saturday Night Live performance? “It’s outstanding. I love it. I love that song and she’s quite a singer.”
Hmm — quite a singer indeed! Looks like Kelly is saying “Never Again” to tweeting controversial messages!
Kelly Clarkson Calls Miley Cyrus ‘Pitchy Stripper’ At VMAs
Miley, 20, gave one of the most outrageous VMA performances ever — but that doesn’t mean that everyone liked it! Critics were harsh when Miley bared nearly all — including Kelly.
“Just saw a couple performances from the VMA’s last night. 2 words…. #pitchystrippers,” Kelly tweeted on Aug. 26.
Although Lady Gaga flaunted major skin during her “Applause” performance, the talk of the awards show was obviously Miley!
It’s nice that Kelly complimented Miley’s SNL performance and “Wrecking Ball.” But after seeing her interview, and noticing the choice words she used, we think Kelly still stands by her original opinion of Miley’s VMA performance!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did you think that Kelly needed to apologize to Miley, or did you agree with her diss? Sound off!
