Despite featuring a squad almost 20-strong, racking up over 400 million views and being nominated for nine Video Music Awards (VMAs), there is one person that Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video has failed to impress.

That one person would be host of the upcoming VMA’s, former Disney star Miley Cyrus.

In a recent interview for the September issue of Marie Claire, Cyrus stated her thoughts on the video, saying, “I don’t get the violence revenge thing. That’s supposed to be a good example? And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my t**ties out? I’m not sure how t**ties are worse than guns.”

Cyrus also had a beef with the music industry itself, saying, “Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore.”

Neither Lamar nor Swift have made a comment on Cyrus’ interview.

Cyrus isn’t the only artist who might need to worry about an awkward run-in with Swift at the VMAs on Aug. 30 – Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry had a public Twitter spat with Swift last month, following the announcement of the 2015 VMA nominees.
