Miley Cyrus caused controversy earlier this week when she sang her new song "Cattitude." One lyric in particular had fans scratching their heads, wondering if she was rekindling her feud with Nicki Minaj. The singer spoke with Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp and set the record straight.
The 26-year-old's lyric from "Cattitude" read “I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi B.”
"I don’t think there is beef now anymore," the former Disney Channel star said, when talking about Cardi and Nicki's feud.
"Actually, one of my songs says 'You want to know if we're really beefin'? There's no beef. I'm a vegan.' I think you're allowed to enjoy two artists that fill a similar lane," she added.
Miley also opened up about collaborating with old Disney pals Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. She revealed, "I grew up collaborating with Demi and Selena. There was never any competition. When you are authentically yourself, no one can be you, so you’re never worried about someone stealing your place.”
In a post she shared right before performing her new single, Miley wrote "I love you, Selena, but I listen to Demi." She also shared another post in which she wrote "I love you, me, but I listen to Ari."
The "Malibu" singer also said in the interview, "That's why Ariana Grande is one of my best friends. When you are authentically yourself, no one can be you. So, you're never worried about someone stealing your place because it can't be taken because you're the only one. I think what they do is so different from each other. That's why they both get a crown. They don't have to share. They don't have to break it in half. There's no reason to fight over it. They're both queens. And anytime you want to feel powerful and strong, that's my go-to, Cardi and Nicki."
As fans know, Miley and Nicki's beef goes back to the 2015 Video Music Awards when Nicki won her award for Best Hip Hop Video for "Anaconda." When she got up to the mic, the rapper took a jab at Miley and said, "And now… back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley, what’s good?"
