Miley Cyrus Slams Lip-Sync Artists and Internet Sensations

Ruling out Britney Spears' lip-sync performances, Miley says aspiring artists like Rebecca Black should work harder to be an artist.

Miley Cyrus is not a fan of lip-sync artists and internet sensations. In an interview with Australia's The Telegraph to promote her upcoming tour, she blasts those preferring to mime their songs rather than singing live, "I would rather someone say I sang like crap than have people see me lip-sync."

Talking about today's aspiring singers who use YouTube to gain fame, Miley stated, "It should be harder to be an artist." In a further statement, the "Can't Be Tamed" singer added, "You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour."

Although the former "Hannah Montana" star didn't mention any name, many people quickly link her statement as a diss to Britney Spears and Rebecca Black. The former is well known for her lip-sync concerts, while the latter gained overnight fame via her viral hit "Friday".

Commenting on today's social networking trend, Miley gushed, "I do not Tweet, I do not social network, I try to stay out of it... for me, I complain enough about people knowing too much about my private life, so to go out there and exploit myself would be silly and hypocritical of what I stand for."

Miley will kick off her tour dubbed "Gypsy Heart" on April 29. "The Gypsy Heart tour is a dream come true. Not only because of all the beautiful cities I will get to visit, but all of the beautiful people I will get to meet. Gypsy Heart is not just a tour for me, but a mission to spread love," she said.

She is going to start the Australian leg on June 21. "I don't want to cross out the Australian boys but I may or may not be single," said the songstress who once dated Aussie hunk Liam Hemsworth. "I'm definitely not coming to Australia single."

    She's right! Only folks with family connections should be allowed to tour! Hypocrite

    Mar 31, 2011

    I agree with Miley. I also agree with the part when she says, "I sang like crap."

    Mar 31, 2011

    Miley is so the media and social network through hype creates so called stars and unleash them on the the old days the public chosed stars because of their talent.

    Mar 30, 2011

    Miley I agree with you. I disagree with 'V' She is a good role model my 11 year old daughter loves her. I think rebecca black's song friday is rubbush and miley cyrus has the right to dis her. If people on youtube keepmaking more songs that are good of course they are going to go on tours. Overall i'm on miley's side. And Britney spears is like her idol she absolutely adores her.

    umm - and how did she get discovered? oh, her dad is billy ray cyrus. i think putting a video on youtube and getting discovered through that is a little bit more genuine than outright nepotism.

    Mar 30, 2011

    what about her little friend Justin Bieber who was discovered through youtube? Oh wait its okay cause hes "hot" ew.

    Mar 30, 2011

    I love Miley,but i disagree with her statement about getting discovered over the internet. Rebecca Black yeah I agree she needed to do more than just her stupid song Friday! Its horrible! But if someone has numerous good videos on youtube and everyone likes them and thinks there talented and proves they can be a good artist i see no problem with getting discovered over youtube.

    Mar 30, 2011

    She is right. I don't really know why your mad at her over this thing about rabecca black. Charlie sheen and other celebrities have said things like this too. And she never really said anything about Britney Spears. In fact, its her favorite artist.

    Mar 30, 2011

    she was asked specifically about Rebecca Black in the interview, and so her answer was specifically about Rebecca Black. people need to get their facts straight.

    Mar 30, 2011

    Miley, you're a dork and a crap. No wonder most of your fans run away from you. You're not a good role model. You step down people, so that others will think you are good. I don't think its a right thing. Someday, you'll so gonna be messed up.
