MCR's Gerard Way Calls Miley Cyrus 'Lip-Syncing Child'

The frontman is still bitter about the fact that their concept album 'The Black Parade' came second to Miley's 'Hannah Montana' album in 2006.

MCR's Gerard Way Calls Miley Cyrus 'Lip-Syncing Child'

My Chemical Romance rocker Gerard Way still feels disappointed by the band's 2006 chart battle with Miley Cyrus - because they lost out to "a lip-syncing child". The group's popular concept album "The Black Parade" was released in September 2006, selling 240,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release.

But the band missed out on America's coveted number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart, coming in second behind Cyrus' "Hannah Montana" soundtrack. And Way admits losing out to a teenage pop star still hurts.

He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "We've never been number one. We got our a** kicked by Miley Cyrus last time, back when nobody knew who she was... (It was a disappointment) because I felt like we'd worked towards it and it felt like it was in the cards (sic). We expected it - like, who can beat us? A lip-syncing child, that's who."

I know this is way late but Chris, If YOU took the time to look up MCR "behind the scene" videos then you would know that Gerard doesn't lip sync in the music videos. You pointed out Miley gives 100% at concerts yet didn't bother to point out MCR's concerts which they give like 1000% at .. Did you do any research before bashing a band you clearly don't know anything about? I'm not even a major My Chem fan anymore but really? At least educate yourself before making idiotic accusations. Okay, that's all. I just wanted to point out the certain flaws in your 'argument'.

So true AllBats, I also think he's a pretty sore loser. I used to like MCR before they released The Black Parade which I found was too mainstream and sell out. I'm totally gobsmacked by their new album as it is utter SH**!

I love My Chemical Romance more than anyone else on this planet, and I think what Gerard said was absolutely true. She really is NOTHING but a lip syncing child whining about boys and how hard it is to have money, while MCR works hard to save lives and has some real hardcore talent. They are the best I've ever heard. They are my favorite thing ever. Miley did nothing but autotune her voice and have her dad buy her a TV show, record deal, and book deal. What's special about Miley? What's so original about Miley? Nothing, if you don't count her world record of biggest amount of autotune used in one song.

The Black Parade was a disappointing album. It's like they were trying to be number one and cared less about the music.

MCR is better than Miley. It's just true. She's a dramatic diva because she gets everything she wants because of her hillbilly daddy.They work and work and try so hard, just to be beaten out by a true 'Lip-syncing Child'. They have mature fans, but sadly she has more little girls throwing tantrums in the middle of a store to buy her album. MCR is the greatest band I know at this point, and I have known them since 2002. It's about friggin time she grew up, and now she's losing fans to her too-grown-up attitude. So, now that children are no longer beating their mommy's legs for her albums, MCR can finally take their place on the charts, ahead of Destiny Hope Cyrus.

Lets face it people, Miley Cyrus is a fugly cow that only got popular because she was on Disney Channel where she was transmitted to impressionable young children. Trust me, if MCR had a TV show on a little kid channel they would be on top.

All recording artists lip sync in videos, including these Chemical boys. So by that measure, MCR are lip syncing children. But, in fact, Miley Cyrus always gives 100 percent live performances in her concerts, no lip syncing, no voice affects like autotune. Anyone can listen to thousands of her live concerts on Youtube and prove that to themselves. If Mr. Way had a sliver of integrity, he would apologize in public for his slander of Ms. Cyrus. But since he appears to be a douchebag who only cares about using Cyrus' much greater popularity to advance his own career, I doubt he will do that.

Miley Cyrus sux, she gave pissed off looks at the thanksgiving parade (even to me, when I waved hi) in 2006.

This is another pointless article blown way out of propoertion to look like another miley bash. It's the daily mail story all over again; blaming MCR for some other people's ignorance. Gerard wasn't angry here, he was just pissed off because he and the band have worked so hard on this new album, even having to attempt it TWICE, only to be beaten by a lip-syncing child. And she DOES lip-sync, it's been proven.

BITTER! Its true Miley lip synch during movies not in her concert, and FYI when u(MCR) record, u do the process of recording so its not live anymore okai.. Dont compare urself to famous one.. Trash! hihi :D

Numbers don't mean anything when it comes to talent. While it is true that Miley doesn't lip-sync, she still sucks. MCR is way better.

I think Gerard is just being honest, I mean she probaly does lip-sing and they don't. Gerard just mad cause they couldn't get the first spot, being so close and all cause of Miley who's always close if she doesn't always win.

Okay, 1. Stop hating on MCR 2. Gerard said that yes, but they cut out all the important parts. Sometimes I wonder of people TRY to make Gee look bad. Gerard had said that back then it had been a disappointment but really, they expected it. They knew that some lip-singing child would come along and steal the spotlight. They know that MCR would always be number 2. This article is so misleading. All you Miley Cyrus fans don't need to freak out and could go back to listening to your crappy Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers. MCR is the real deal. ;~; ah, my poor Gerard. Trying to be sabatoged by Miley fans. Hes gonna be upset on twitter.

so y wus it posted hannah montana u a lame but yo song no lame
posted by mfan on Nov 27, 2010
I was wondering why this article was posted. It's because My Chemical Romance has a new album out that has no chance of being number one because of the competition.

And these guys are still clueless or they would know that, while many current stars like Keisha, The Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Brittany, etc., lip-synch, Miley does not.

well, Miley DOES suck. MCR is soooo much better that shitty Miley Cyrus

What the f***. Miley do ONLY lip-sync in the tv show and the movie. Stop wining and face the facts. She is better. The numbers don't lie.
