Miley Cyrus: ‘Twilight is a Cult’


Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Miley CyrusMILEY Cyrus has hit out at Twilight – again!

The Hannah Montana star — who recently insisted she has no intention of watching the films — says the Vampire franchise is like a “cult”.

“I think it’s like [a] cult… I think it’s a cult,” the 17-year-old said on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up in an interview that aired on Tuesday (video below). “I think it’s bad. I think it’s like, just people get too into it.”

“For me,” Miley added, “I think it’s like when guys look at supermodels and they’re like, ‘That’s the perfect girl’ … That’s what those kind of movies do to us.

“They’re like thinking that’s what girls should be like and not everyone is going to be Edward, hate to say it.”

The Twilight Saga: New Moon — which hits theaters less than a week ago — has already smashed box office records.

    Gosh. I HATE Miley Cyrus! I think shes just jealous that twilight is WAY more famous than her! What a hater!

    Twilight is WAy better than her!

  • Chris Liberty

    People, how can you hate on Miley? Like, just stop it! I don’t know what you are all, like, mad about! Miley’s like so it. Every song she sings is like, you know, like, like, like, it! Miley is my fountain of like wisdom! A true paragon of like virtue, like, like just the best like thing ever!

    Seriously, I saw the first Twilight movie. Hated it. I honestly don’t know what people saw in the film, but fine. I can’t say that I see it as a cult. Probably would be the first film that ever made it to cult-status, but ok, Miley. Whatever. I have no intention of seeing New Moon. I’m happy for those who do like it. Gives them something to look forward to next year when the third installment comes out. Be good, people.

  • innocentbystander

    how many times is she going to say like. good god read a book and brush up on your vocabulary. But i do agree about the whole twilight thing. people get a little out of control about fiction!!

  • Sydney

    She is like, really dumb, like I think she sucks, like wow how lame. Seriously….this comment is like, totally biased, because I like, have always hated miley’s work and like have always loved the twilight series but like…learn how to speak at least! Hate what you want, but do it in a way that doesn’t make you seem even more dumb than you already do.

  • Brooke

    Ok first, her voice is extremely annoying. It sounds like shes talking thru her nose, and 2nd whats with the word “Like!” she needs to get a speech/interview coach.
    and talk about conceited!!!! She ISNT awesome… I refuse to support any of her music now that she said ” I dont like people singing my songs to Karaoke” WOW. I understand piracy.. But singing to them.. WHAT A BIATCH!! She really got a snobby attitude when she got a little famous. She needs to remember where she came from…

    and I agree with everyone else.. Shes jealous cuz Twilight is more famous then she will ever be.

    I hope you read this Miley, and GROW UP! You are going to be a one night wonder someday with that attitude, just like your daddy.

  • Mad Dog

    Ok, I saw this on the front page of Yahoo! and was annoyed. I am yet to see the “Twilight” movie, and am keeping an open mind to it. That being said, for Miley Cyrus to come out and say such a thing is really uncalled for, and is an insult to the fans of the books and the movie. My impression of her is that of a snotty and spoiled brat, who can’t sing OR act. I have watched a couple of episodes of her show (“Hannah Montana”) and wow, is she just awful. She needs to take a good look in the mirror before she makes another comment like that.

  • Mel

    Um, Like Miley, we don’t need like a 15 year…er excuse me, 16 year old as of 3 days ago telling us men are like not like Edward. Ok? Like we know dude. Stop like hatin’ on like stuff you don’t even bother to like read or watch…that’s just plain like ignorance.

  • LOLercoaster

    LOL teenage angst on both sides.

    Probably, TL;DR. But meh.

    Why would she care if you say Twilight is better than her? Worry about someone else’s thoughts, that she mostly likely will not meet? I think some people need to be open minded a bit. Why should you worry about what someone else thinks about what you like? Everyone is not going to agree with you. EVERYTHING has its “hater’s”, and “lovers” of any series, book, movie, actor, etc. And every decade has an icon, right now, its Twilight. And that will fade into memories of the past, as did everything else.

    And the opinion thing, “Keep it to yourself!!! Yaddayaddayadda!” That’s not fair that some overly-rabid fans BAAAAWWWWW a little because someone commented negative about, and acting childish too when saying ” is just jealous because is hotter, or more popular!” That’s just another form of “NO U!” launched at each other. So it’s fair for you to scream at the top of your lungs (which is, YES, annoying to some people, regardless of what you yell)? And not fair for someone to voice their opinion negatively?

    Okay, off that topic… My point is. WHO SHOULD YOU CARE OF WHAT SOMEONE ELSE THINKS?! Their opinion isn’t killing you literally, so just ignore it.

    I’m not standing up for either side. Because I truly don’t like Twilight or Miley Cyrus.

  • edw

    I see that it’s perfectly OK for teens to love her TV show, pay hundreds of dollars for her concerts, go see HER movie, and buy her merchandise; which includes shirts and watches. When it comes to liking something else or looking forward to a movie she has to call it a cult. Just another southern idiot with a microphone in her hands.

  • Chris Liberty

    Edw, I can agree with your anger about her calling Twilight a cult, which I thought was a gross exageration. However, your critique of her being “another southern idiot” is uncalled for. I’m from Georgia, and, speaking on behalf of other southerners, would prefer for you to keep your criticism of Cyrus on your disagreement with her. Unless, of course, you hate southerners, which would make you a bigot, far worse than Miley and anything she said. Stick with the source of the disagreement, and you show your intelligence. Stray from it, just so you can make a silly attack, and you show your stupidity. Everyone should try to nourish their intelligent side over their stupidity.

    HEY!i sed that!coolness person!bt ya who wudnt agree?!shes…just…ewwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!

  • lara

    (Ok, people pleeeease note I HATE Miley frickin’ Cyrus a lot, understatement, and I am not defending her, just proving a point.)
    This whole thing has been totally blown out of proportion. Really, one silly little rich girl’s opinion is gonna start this much of a arguement? I personally DO like Twilight but I do think it’s reputation has become kinda crazy with the whole crazy, screaming fan thing (for instance, poor Rob Pattinson nearly getting hit by a taxi because of them…). But to put it simply, if you like Twilight that much, you shouldn’t really care about what people (especially stupid people *cough* MILEY *cough*) think about it.

  • lara

    She just needs to grow up. ’nuff said.

  • Kirsten

    I just gained a lot of respect for Miley. As a teen figurehead, it’s her responsibility to speak out against things that are wrong, and Twilight is WRONG. It teaches girls that abusive, stalking boyfriends are ‘romantic’. Good job, Miley. I’ll be sure to buy something of yours in the future.

  • Rheanna

    First of all, she is an idiot. Every other word was “like,” which proves her intelligence level is not but so high. Maybe she should take time out of her busy schedule and read a book. I think that she would understand why we all like Twilight so much.
    And she is just mad that Dakota Fanning got a part in the movie, and she didn’t. :( lol.

    “and like oh like my like gosh like.. i am so awesome like.. like like..” real intelligent Miley Cyrus.. read a dictionary or something.. it will increase your vocabulary, so you have something else to say.

  • Maria

    Okay, first of all, I am not a fan of Miley Cyrus OR Twilight. In fact, I hate them both. Just because she is “famous” she doesn’t have a right to an opinion? Last time I checked she lived in America! When I read this on the front page of Yahoo, I was so glad that Miley Cyrus has a brain. What’s so great about Twilight anyways? Sparklng vampires? How Meyer wrote 500+ pages of crap describing Edward’s eyes? Why does Edward like Bella anyways? Because she smells nice.

    And Meyer says she got the idea from a ‘dream’. Yeah, she read some Anne Rice and then dreamed about the book. Go read some real vampire literature. Books about vampires that don’t sparkle or about angsty-teenage girls who jump off a cliff when their boyfriend’s leave them.

  • Astrid

    Miley Cyrus is a talentless, unintelligent person who doesn’t deserve the fame she has. Twilight is an overrated, blown-out-of-proportion franchise.
    Thank you. Good night.

  • Kaley

    ok so miley cyrus does have some talent, I will admit… and honestly her movie wasnt half bad… but seriously i have loved twilight since before all the stupid screaming girls got into it. I was the one who introduced it to most of my friends and it is my favorite books… i understand that some people take it a little overboard with their screaming and being obsessed with rob and taylor but that doesnt mean that it is like a cult… i paid money to go see new moon and twilight and they obviously werent as great as the books but r they ever??? i mean i was disapointed in harry potter movies also… but they were good movies and if i watched them before reading the books they would have been perfect but it is just ridiculous that some stupid 16 year old twangy star has the guts to dis the most loved series in america and personally i just think that she is jealous because she cant have taylor lautner and taylor swift gets him… and taylor cant even sing… she just wants all the attention on herself just like a stupid selfish two-year-old… its ridiculous… –Kaley!

  • Kaley

    o and by the way if you had actually read the books you would kno wat the movie was actually SUPOSED to be like… but i guess as miley cyrus (like like like like)omg thats annoying!!! but i guess as her or her fan you must not have the intelligence to read a book that doesnt have pictures… sorry!!!:Dlol

  • Stuart

    Damn Miley, I don’t know if I should continue to hate you or love you now for bagging Twilight.

  • Kaley

    rob and taylor are way hotter than zac efron you facking idiot!!! and i hate robs chest… lol

  • diva!

    oh wow its funny reading these comments.
    1) miley is stupid and annoying, seriously!!! this isnt a biased opinion, ive actually objectively tried to listen to her music..she sucks!!!
    2) ok im miss an expert on boys bcuz ive dAted one of the jonas brothers!!!, we all know edward doesnt exist and that nt all boys will be like him…ure the only one living i n a fantasy world
    3) im totally ok with her hating twilight n stuff but seriously, she really should have shown a little more respect!!! didnt have to prove shes a snotty spiled arrohant little girl, it makes her seem jealous!!!
    4) who tries to make anyone appear more perfect than disney? plueeeassseeeeee!! when every1 was screamin for miley she didnt seem to mind.the reasons she gives for hating twilight means she should hate herself too cuz at one point in time, before nw where cyrus is totally outdated, people used to attach the same feeling etc to her
    5) seeing tht u havent read the book u attaching so much disgust to it shows how totally ignorant u are
    6) wtf??? in no dimension WHATEVER is zac efron hotter than taulor lautner!!!! NONE WHAT SO EVER!!!
    7) i loveeeeee twilight!!!! its a really great book and the movis are pretty decent. i read them before this entire twilight craze and was extremly happy tht they did it into a movie…GO SUUMIT!!!!
    OH AND LASTLY, JUST TO PROVE THAT MILRY CYRUS AND HER IGNORANT BELIVES SRE SO IRRELEVANT…NEW MOON HAS THE THIRD HIGHEST OPENING EVERRRR. OVER 140 MILLION. HA, WHAT A BITCH SLAP MILEY. GROW UP!!!

  • Miley

    I DONT THIN MILEY SHOULD BE A CHILDS ROLE MODEL CUZ SHES A SLUT AND A FAKE

  • Katie

    I am surprised that she even knows what a cult is. Perhaps her opinions would have more value if she would at least be grammatically correct. Everyone has the right to have their own opinion, of course. However, when those opinions are ignorant or bias, they are just stupid.

  • Mo

    Ok I HAVE NEVER tead or seen twilight and I DO SOMETIMES LIKE MILEY but my freind loves twilight so I think its fine.I like Miley but it dosent mean she can do that.And people just because a famous person says somthing dosent mean you have to get so angry about it.WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR BEST FREIND DIDNT LIKE TWILIGHT?KICK HER FACE IN???

  • http://www.twitter.com Natalia

    Shut up Miley Cyrus is not twilight who sucks is you and ‘Hannah Montana’ which sucks

  • Josh Berry

    I really like what Miley Cyrus had to say about Twilight. I used to not like Miley at all, because all I would hear from girls is Miley this and Miley that, but now that I see where she stands on the Twilight issue, I have more respect for her because she is not acting on the notion that she has to appeal to every girl out there. I honestly like Miley now because she is her own person, and is not falling under the category that I would like to call “All girls are the same”.

  • jean

    Twilight is gay and Miley Cyrus is gay too

  • ruuyaaXD

    i dont think miley is jealous cuz she probably got more famous than twilight cuz shes been around for longer but i luv both her and twilight but she cuz atleast be gracious like selena cuz selena said she was sorry even when she only said she hadnt watched and selena has twilight friends. i dont think its disney vs twilight cuz demi lovato is a fan and booboo stuart (seth) and jackson rathbone (jasper) were both managed by disney.

    I may not agree with this, but Miley has every right to voice her opinion.

  • kasukasu

    Seriously people, she is just expressing her opinions… just because she is a superstar doesn’t mean she cannot express her thoughts. Though she could have better phrase her sentences but overall it wasnot harsh.

    Those comments about her being jealous are so irritating when I read it. Come on, singing is her forte and there is currently only 1 HM movie and to compare with (going to be) 4 twilight movies…
