Is that the distinct sound of shade being thrown? When Lady Gaga arrived to the AMAs on a human-powered white horse, Miley Cyrus — who is definitely no stranger to a grand entrance — couldn’t help but poke fun at the flamboyant pop diva.
Miley Cyrus, 21, has recently made a name for herself as the court jester of the awards show circuit. So when Lady Gaga, 27, stole her red carpet thunder with a human-powered horse and Donatella Versace throwback costume at the 2013 American Music Awards, Miley was a bit taken back.
Miley Reacts To Gaga’s Entrance: ‘What A [Bleep] Scene-Stealer!’
According to E! Online, Miley was chatting with the likes of Jonathan Cheban, Jenna Ushkowitz and Zendaya on the red carpet when Gaga emerged for an insane entrance that was channeling the one Bianca Jagger made on her birthday as she rode into Studio 54 in 1977. Miley, who was demurely dressed in a Versus Versace suit, was clearly outdone by her fellow Versace-wearing, scene-stealing pop princess.
“What a f—ing … sorry!” Miley said to the red carpet reporters. “What a big scene stealer! Next time, I’m going to come in on a dragon.”
The (fake?) shade did not stop there. Miley joked with reporters that they could leave her if they wanted to go chat with Gaga instead, and even threw in a dig at her 2011 Grammy Awards get-up.
“You can stop interviewing me if you want to go interview Gaga,” she said. “I don’t care. She didn’t come up in an embryo this time. That’s so boring.”
You’re right, Miley — a giant, crying cat hovering in space is definitely less boring than an embryo. We think. It’s a toss-up.
Miley & Gaga: Are They Rivals?
Even if Miley’s words sounded harsh, she likely didn’t mean any harm. After all, Gaga has had Miley’s back in the past, and Miley isn’t one to diss her fellow pop stars just for making a statement.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was Miley throwing shade, or just making a joke?
