UPDATE (8/28/2013): Miley's best friend (and sometime-assistant) Cheyne Thomas tweeted some shade right back at Kelly, saying, "She's fat and 30. The reasons Kelly Clarkson is better could really go on for days." (Kelly is actually 31 now.) Cheyne seems to have deleted the tweet, but not before media outlets like Daily Mail took screenshots of the snarky comments.
There's no love lost this morning between Kelly Clarkson and Miley Cyrus — after the latter's crotch-fondling, tongue-extending performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards last night, August 25.
Miley's performance of "We Can't Stop" segued into Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," and saw the former Disney star stripping down to her skivvies, stroking and grinding against Robin's "Thicke" — sorry, we had to — and making us intimately (and perhaps annoyingly) familiar with her tongue.
Kelly "I Do Not Hook Up" Clarkson clearly has not been waiting a lifetime for "A Moment Like This," tweeting:
One Twitter user called out the American Idol grad on her cattiness, saying that the tweet wasn't very nice, to which Kelly replied:
Granted, the 31-year-old triple Grammy winner could have been referring to Lady Gaga, who also shed clothing in her "Applause" performance, but we tend to doubt it: The Lady's performance is not the one about which everyone is talking (and stifling gag reflexes for) this morning.
Was Kelly's comment on point? Or was that a little too much shade to throw? Let us know your thoughts below!
