Miley Cyrus E-Slaps Katy Perry Right Where It Hurts: John Mayer

Does anybody else think Miley looks like Ellen here? Just a little?

Celebrity feuds are so weird. One day, you’re making out in front of several thousand screaming fans; the next, you’re tweeting and doing interviews about how gross your individual mouths are. Make up your minds, all you famous weirdos! Or in this case, just Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.

Quick recap: During one of Miley’s Bangerz concerts in February, she leaned over to the front row and made out with Katy Perry for a few seconds. It was a match made in Madonna/Britney/Christina publicity heaven. Then, on Tuesday, Katy told Australian talk show Sunrise that the kiss wasn’t nearly as sexy as every celeb media outlet may have said:

“I just walked up to her to give her like a friendly girly kiss, you know, as girls do, and then she like tried to move her head and go deeper and I pulled away.

“God knows where that tongue has been. We don’t know! That tongue is so infamous!”

This wasn’t exactly a nice thing to say, particularly when the two seem like they are actually friends with one another. Naturally, Miley being Miley and all, she just had to respond in the form of this tweet:

She followed that up with a really, really odd piece of, ahem, art:

So basically, Katy called Miley’s tongue dirty and disgusting and way too pushy for her delicate lady kiss sensibilities. To show how mature she is, Miley called John Mayer dirty and disgusting and all sorts of slutty. (Or is it about Russell Brand?) But it’s all okay because LOOK AT THIS LOVELY WATERCOLOR OF US MAKING OUT!

It kind of feels like that special brand of passive-aggressive fight reserved for middle schoolers and contestants on Big Brother. I think I primarily do not dig this is because both women are implying a certain dirtiness that comes from sexual experience, but I also just think it’s stupid to do interviews on television and trade insults on the Internet no matter who you are. The only people I know who still write passive-aggressive tweets and Instagram captions are perennial man- and woman-children who have no acknowledged their age increasing since the eighth grade.

    Katy Perry just said what everyone else is thinking! Maybe Miley should reevaluate this whole trying to shock and awe thing she’s been doing because she’s not shocking she’s just being disgusting

      That’s immediately what I thought when I heard that she kissed Katie. I was like but some strange chick’s thong was in her mouth. Ew.

    Whatever the future may bring to their passive-aggressive bickering, the fact of the matter is that the watercolor art is pretty cool.
