Radiohead has continued music’s oddest feud with Miley Cyrus after blasting her for threatening to “ruin” the band. Cyrus revealed she had made it her mission to “ruin” Radiohead after frontman Thom Yorke snubbed her at the Grammy Awards last month. The Hannah Montana star requested a meeting with her favourite band when she discovered their dressing room was four away from hers, but Yorke politely declined because he was preparing himself for his first performance at the music Oscars.
In a radio interview last week, Cyrus said, “My manager asked and said, you know, ‘Miley, she’s really obsessed and she’d really like to meet them,’ and they were like, ‘Yeah, we don’t really do that.'” Cyrus was left humiliated by the slight – because she had already boasted to her friends about meeting the band. She adds, “I left ’cause I was so upset. I wasn’t going to watch! I’d already texted all my friends, we were all freaking out.” And the teen sensation was so hurt she made an instant decision to expose Radiohead as mean guys – something that has annoyed Yorke.
In a statement issued to magazine Us Weekly, Radiohead’s publicist says, “When Miley grows up, she’ll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement.”
Now I don’t want to come off as a pretentious fan of Radiohead, who would feel that he has the right to claim who is worthy to listen to any given band. But this little side story to the Grammy’s is kind of hilarious on the surface. I mean can you really picture this teeny bopper sitting on her tour bus, listening to “knives out” or “I will” before a big sold-out concert in Disney World? But hey I could just be the loser making rash assumptions about the depth of this pop idol. The entitlement bit was funny on Radiohead’s part, but I suppose this behavior is to be expected by a 16 year old.
Although all kidding aside, a Rolling Stone cover featuring Thom and Miley would be some collector’s item.
