Miley Cyrus Called Ed Sheeran An ‘Asshole’ Last Night, Proving Girl Can Hold A Grudge

Miley Cyrus calling Ed Sheeran an asshole at the 2014 VMAs GIFSilly old me, when I was watching the MTV Video Music Awards last night, I kept thinking that it was boring and nothing was happening. But by the cold light of day, I can see that there was more going on last night than caught the eye — like Miley Cyrus calling Ed Sheeran an asshole!

That’s right, amid the Kardashian-Jenners texting their way through the Ferguson tributeBlue Ivy breaking our ovaries with cuteness by doing the ‘Single Ladies’ dance, and Taylor Swift delivering a very pitchy version of her new song under all those backing tracks, there was an exciting new feud afoot.

When Ed Sheeran’s video for ‘Sing’ won Best Male Video and he went up to accept the award, he walked along the front row, exchanging high fives with someone sitting to the right of Miley, but not Miley herself. Annnnnd if you watch the GIF of that moment, you can see Miley’s lips forming the word ‘asshole’ as he passes by her and she turns her face to follow him.

Now, if you’re anything like me, you’re asking yourself in this moment what Ed and Miley could possibly be fighting about. And that would make sense, because according to Us Magazinethe inciting incident happened almost a year ago, when Miley released her video for ‘Wrecking Ball’, and Ed had this to say about it:

“It’s a stripper’s move. If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn’t want her twerking. When I first heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ I thought it was a brilliant song. But the video distracts too much from it.”

Strong words calling her a stripper, but considering she lit’rally took off all her clothing for that video, you can kind of totally see his point, right? Plus, there’s a compliment buried in there, and it’s pretty close to the top, even Miles! He says he thought it was a brilliant song, but then your behavior distracted from it. This seems to be a pattern with you, so maybe take a lesson from it? No? Or just throw out barbs on-camera at awards shows, it’s up to you.

      I know I’m responding to his YEAR AGO comments, but while I totally see that it issss a stripper move in that she removes all her clothes, I hate that he says he wouldn’t want his daughter (not his son) twerking or acting like Miley. There are lots of behaviors I don’t condone on Miley’s part, but the naked stuff is the least of my worries about her, and I would proooobably call him an asshole, too.

      He was right. She pulled a stunt and he called her out. It’s annoying to see someone like Miley who seemingly can’t handle criticism.

      Sigh. Miley has just gotten so pathetic. I used to really love her and then the antics got out of control. The stunt she pulled when she won best video, I’m glad she brought attention to something so important, but she sat herself on the edge of the stage and forced her tears real hard. If she really felt what she was doing was for the right reasons, she would have sat herself back in her seat and let the kid have the moment. She used a good cause as a publicity stunt, as is everything she does now. There is just never enough attention for her

        WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? A professional performer (a pop star no less) who does her damndest to court attention from the public?! Why, I’ve never heard of such a thing!

        It’s tolerable to a point though. She’s taken it above and beyond the point of necessity
