Miley Cyrus Disses Selena Gomez & Proves Grown-Up Miley Still Can't Be Tamed
She's being Miley, but not necessarily being nice. Miley Cyrus has come under fire recently for very publicly insulting former Disney star (and, apparently, former friend) Selena Gomez. According to reports, Miley Cyrus dissed Selena Gomez by bringing a cardboard cutout of the "Come and Get It" singer onto stage with her during her Milan, Italy concert while she sang her song "FU." After a few minutes Miley tossed the cardboard cutout into the audience, who were probably pretty confused about what just happened. Did Miley really just stoop to that level of immaturity to insult Selena?
Uh, it looks that way. Yes, Miley could have just grabbed the first cardboard cutout that she found in the audience (why someone bring a Selena Gomez cutout to a Miley concert is beyond me) as a prop for her set, but given the song lyrics, something else might be going on here. "FU" is about a girl who finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her — obviously, it's a pretty pissed-off song. So the fact that Miley only brought Selena's cut out for the angriest song in her set definitely sets off alarms.
Miley's attack on Selena may seem to be out of left field, but there have been rumors of a feud between the former Disney Channel stars for a while now. According to Perez Hilton, Selena and pals Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato have allegedly freezed Miley out so badly that she's stopped showing up to places where the girls will be. According to Perez Hilton's source, the girls are mad because Miley hit on Selena's ex, Justin Bieber.
If that's really the case, yeah — I don't blame Miley for being pissed at her former friends. At the same time, publicly dissing Selena might be the least mature route one could take — it appears childish and like pure attention-seeking behavior. Miley is constantly talking about wanting to be known for her music above all else, and this kind of a stunt distracts from the hard work she is putting into her career.

Come on, guys... can't we all just get along?
