Miley Cyrus burns Katy Perry for ‘tongue’ insult with amazing comeback

Katy Perry

A few days ago, we covered a pretty rude Katy Perry interview. She went on Australian television and discused how she kissed Miley Cyrus and didn’t like it. Katy had attended Miley’s LA show and readily gave Miley a “friendly” smooch on the kiss cam. Katy said Miley “like tried to move her head and go deeper, and I pulled away. God knows where that tongue has been.” It was a total putdown and especially hilarious because we all know where Katy’s tongue has been … with John Mayer’s David Duke….

Miley’s been on the road, so it took her a few days to come down to earth and reply to Katy’s insult. I had to hand it to Miley for doing so with flair:

Katy followed up last evening with a cutsey reply to make it sound like she was cool with Miley insulting her on-off “man.”

Then someone from Katy’s camp leaked to Hollywood Life about how Katy’s insult was “just a joke.” Plus any fight Miley might be putting up “is silly.” See how Katy is trying to turn it all around on Miley? Katy is pretending to not notice how Miley told the truth about John Mayer. Katy’s also putting it all on Miley for being a “fighter.” I see right through you Katy.

Here’s Miley and Katy (who’s lookin’ like a blow-up doll) at the 2008 MTV VMAs.

    Both of their tongues have been in questionable places. Shall we just leave it at that?

  2. Eleonor says:

    It’s a really sad day when Miley Cyrus has a point!

    • Tatjana says:

      What kind of spelling is that? Did Miley and Katy school?

      • V4Real says:

        It’s social media lingo. Some of the most intelligent people use this type of spelling when on Twitter due to the limitations of the amount of words you can use. The same is done when texting with most people. You becomes U, because turns into b/c. It saves space as well as typing time.

      • Prettylights says:

        I’m just wondering when proper English completely turns into these misspelled half words/lingo. As an English major and lit nerd, this hurts my heart. It seems to be happening already…when I read message boards, facebook posts, ect. half the time you can’t understand a damn word people are saying.

      • Whatwhatnot says:

        I refuse to write that way even if it’s just social media, though I admit, I don’t do Twitter. And many young kids go beyond abbreviating for lack of space. They purposefully misspell words because they think it’s “kewl” or Quute.

        A few of my friends are teachers and they’ve mentioned to me that they’ve noticed that these kids are starting to apply this method of writing to school work and how frustrating it is to see it popping up all over their papers.

      • Hiddles forever says:


        ITAWY!! I can’t understand what they are saying… Just sad!

      • V4Real says:

        “I’m just wondering when proper English completely turns into these misspelled half words/lingo.”

        Well Ebonics have been around for years, this is nothing new. Snoop Dog was the one who started Fo shizzle my fizzle which means for sure my friend. I get the complete changing of a spelling of a word may be off putting but as for the rest I don’t think it’s a big deal. How many times do we use LOL and SMH on this board instead of spelling it out.

        I know educated people who speaks with a bit of slang when away from the work place but they know how to code switch when it comes to their profession.
        But kids do need to reel it in and not bring that type of language into their school work. I agree with that. But if we are going to criticize people for using text orTwitter talk, that is being a bit nit-picky. What’s wrong with taking the English language and having a little fun with it as long as you know the correct way to speak, spell and write it. I don’t always use it but if I’m sending my friends a text, yes I tend to say U, instead of You in a text. It’s quicker.

    *snorts* Katy had that coming..

  4. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I think Katy’s second tweet was her just trying to save face….I bet she’s embarrassed and pissed–for all the wrong reasons.

    Also–who kisses their female friends on the mouth? I don’t. I only put my lips on family. She sounds like she’s trying to be a faux lesbian i.e. something sexual for dudes.

    Miley’s shade was PERFECT.

    • Anna says:

      A lot of College girls kiss their friends on the mouths, so I guess it makes sense for Miley, but I don’t get why Katy would still be doing it..
      I agree about her Katy shade though, it was amazing LOL

      • paola says:

        You’re assuming Miley went to college. If she did she needs to ask for her money back. That spelling is hideous.

      • Shantal says:

        She didn’t actually mean that Miley attended college. She was just saying that Miley is in the same age group (18-22) as the traditional college student, whereas Katy will be 30 this year.

    • Monkey Towz says:

      I give my friends kisses when I see them. It’s very chaste & we consider eachother family.
      Tongue only comes out after several drinks ;-)

      • V4Real says:

        Here here. LOL

        If Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry were my friends there would be plenty of lip action.

        I don’t however kiss family members on the mouth, they can have either cheek.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      You also didn’t get famous with a song called “I kissed a girl.” Wow, Miley looks so young and normal in those #tbt pics. Katy looks ridiculous, so fake.

      • Monkey Towz says:

        @ SDM, valid point. These two always seem to do anything for attention(along with many others), and frankly, nothing they do is shocking. Every bit, even the stupid Twitter exchange is contrived.

    • Tatjana says:

      Kisses on the mouth are for boyfriends and girlfriends. Not even family.

    • V4Real says:

      Yep slap that title on me because I have kissed plenty of my female friends on the mouth.

  5. Mich says:

    OMG. She does look like a blow up doll! And here I thought I couldn’t find her any grosser.

  6. eliza says:

    I dislike Katy Perry immensely BUT I dislike Miley even more. No winners in this pissing match.

    • LB says:

      They both are questionable people and awful role models. So #teamnoone

    • Paige says:

      Eliza ITA .
      And honestly, none of us would win prizes for where ‘our tongue’s have been’ but. maybe miley could scrape the thick white gunk off hers before she tries to put it in someone’s mouth…

  7. Marnie says:

    Good for Miley. Katy may have been joking, but it was still offensive either way.

  8. M.A.F. says:

    points for Miley for that come back.

  9. ZAK says:

    This feud feels faked for attention to me. Both Miley and Katy love attention after all.

    • Tapioca says:

      Ding-ding-ding, we have a winner! Neither the Bangerz tour nor either of their albums are setting the world on fire, so why not drum up a little media interest in a “feud”? Just ignore them both and eventually they’ll go away…

  10. rep says:

    Miley also told katy, dont act like you didnt like it.

  11. yennefer says:

    She said the exact same thing as many of CB commenters did. Do you think she reads celebitchy? Cheers Miley, if you’re reading this!

  12. paola says:

    If it’s true the story of the 6 degrees of separation (kissing wise too) we’ve all been kissing Miley and Katy.
    I feel dirty now. Sorry i need to go and have a shower. And speak to my doctor.

  13. Sarah says:

    The question is did she mean John Mayer or Russell Brand? Brand is one of the few people to have his tongue in more places than Mayer. maybe Miley meant both.

    • Kelly says:

      your question is pointless since both men have tongued katy “I kissed a girl while looking like a blow-up-doll and I liked it” perry

    • Sisi says:

      yeah I think she kept it ambiguous on purpose to prove her point even more.

  14. Kelly says:

    AHAHAHHAHAHAHA, epic response is epic!!!

  15. Quinn says:

    Exactly which “ex boo” is she referencing?? Considering Ms Perry’s dating history, I need this clarified, please.

    • Ella says:

      I think she meant John. While Russell definitely has as much of a womanizing reputation as John, it seems like someone would call Russell her “ex-hubby” or something rather than “ex-boo”. Plus the fact that Katy and Russell have been broken up for over 2 years, it just seems to fit better that she meant Katy’s “ex-boo” John Mayer.

      Anyway, the whole thing is stupid – they’re probably both just playing it up for publicity, and I doubt either of them is truly pissed off at each other.

  16. Jaderu says:

    Two attention whores arguing over who’s had the most “germs” in their mouth.
    Even my 6 cats are rolling their eyes right now.
    Yes I have 6 cats. Shut it.

  17. lower-case deb says:

    it’s like trying to decide whether one prefers see Phyllis or go on Rhea for the night.

  18. kimbers says:

    Just wanted to see what the comeback was and in true miley fashion it was unoriginal, expected and disappointing. :(

  19. Sunlily says:

    Yeah, but the kiss wasn’t a problem during her stuntqueen antics, now was it? One would think that the “where has your mouth been?” question would be brought up before you actually went along with it.

    “Someone asked me the other day, ‘What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?’ And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n***** pass.”

    You used to do someone who says shit like that. Ewwwwwwwww.

  20. Miffy says:

    No winners.

    There are gas station bathroom floors that are less of an eco system than Miley Cyrus’ tongue and Katy Perry has sucked on some potential herpetic faces. Neither wins any prizes for pointing that out about the other.

  21. Marty says:

    While Miley does have a point, is she forgetting she put someone’s thong in her mouth?

    It’s like one of those which would you rather with two pretty horrible options.

  22. QQ says:

    There are no winners here BOTH these chicks are so awful, trashy, uneducated, and petty in every single way, Top to bottom, starting with the living Blow up doll ending with the white rich girl using ebonics

  23. Lark says:

    I would feel a slight amount of sympathy for Katy Perry if she hadn’t originally posted some tweet pretending she had loved the kiss right after it happened. She’s a complete hypocrite. I have to go with Lainey on this one, in that I’m amazed this woman always gets a pass. She does horrific songs like that “Ur so Gay,” makes whack ass comments about how she wants to “wear the skin of Japanese people because they are so cute” among other things, and is basically a major slut shamer (and then goes on about women wearing little clothes in magazines even though she had a past, and then going around and doing a majorly sexed up shoot for GQ). Just…meh. She’s also 30, so to be beefing with a 21 year old is RME. I doubt she leaked anything to HL, but I do think she was trying to turn it around on Miley and do her “giggles, I’m just a ditzy girl who means no harm and I’m the victim here” schtick that she’s used before.

    So basically, #team miley on this one. But would have been even more glorious if Miley had brought up Katy’s past comments on not being a feminist or not “baring” her body for photo shoots and contrasted it with her attempt to shame Miley and her sexy shoot.

  24. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Anything that badly written cannot be an “amazing comeback.”

  25. serena says:

    Miley’s win, hands down.

  26. Sam says:

    They are both gross in my opinion.

    The new face of feminism – Miley Cyrus with her obscene and trashy style, she suddenly turned into a home girl, stealing what she can from black culture to compensate for her lack of talent.

    Desperation just reeks from her.

    And Katy, divorced after being barely married to that gross looking dude and dating john Mayer, praying for big boobs, not bigger brain I guess.

    And who can forget her boobs spraying foam on stage.

    Classy ladies, obviously….right.

  27. Marianne says:

    I do think Katy was joking about the whole “god knows where her tongue has been” statement.

  28. Lady_Jane says:

    Well Miley does have a good point.

  29. Karen says:

    Haha, oh Katy. She got owned. I don’t get why she always tries to act above it all when she’s so desperate for attention herself.

  30. Michelle says:

    Miley wins this one. Someone send Katy some ice.

  31. St says:

    Well whatever. I don’t care that much about this school girl fight. And whose insult was more insulting. But if you look at it – Miley basically sexually assaulted Katy. Katy went for friendly kiss on the cheek. And Miley straight out went with her tongue inside her mouth. Imagine that would happen with guy. Like some coworker you don’t even think about getting sleep with just suddenly kisses you when you give him friendly hug/kiss on the cheek. Or you are a guy and some co worker or neighbor kisses you with tongue when you give her friendly good buy kiss.

    Miley’s problem is that she lives in her own little reality and thinks that “every father is turned on” on her and wants to bang her and that every celebrity wants to kiss with her. Or something. Miley still doesn’t understand that no one finds her sexy and laugh at her.

    Katy wasn’t feeling it. And pulled aways and said she didn’t want to do that. And basically kind of said that she doesn’t want to kiss Miley because she is joke and is “dirty”. Kinda like guy doesn’t want to kiss hookerr because everyone knows what she did with that mouth before. And that what Katy basically said. And Miley’s response confirmed that she understood it and got angry. It’s really embarrassing for Miley, actually.

  32. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    I don’t think dragging someone’s ex into a spat is particularly clever. What’s next, insulting each other’s pets? Personal assistants?

  33. Michele says:

    Miley will never be Katy. Miley will always be gross and obnoxious and not in a cute way.

  34. SO True says:

    Katy Perry look EXACTLY like a blow-up doll!

  35. Ronnie says:

    Katy used to look goooddd
    Now she looks like a chunkier, hipster blow up doll.

  36. khaveman says:

    So ready for Miley to fade away. It’s not like she is a great singer. She just works everything for shock value. It’s old.

  37. lisa2 says:

    Katy’s career jumped with “I Kissed a Girl’.. then she goes on a show and disses Miley. Miley struck back and hit home. Now Katy backs off.

    I never ever will get all these celebrity BFFs for show. They all gravitate towards each other for press. Spouting off how they are such great friends and love each other; then the truth comes out about how they really feel; all the huggy huggy for show.

  38. exu says:

    Miley looks like she has a venereal disease. At least Katy does not.

    I can’t wait for the miley rehab posts. She is a washed up anti feminist idiot.
