She's used to being the ultimate role model that Taylor Swift probably wasn't expecting to be branded the opposite by none other than pop's good girl turned bad, Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus is known for her controversial stage antics and liberal stance on sex and drugs, but struggles to see how nudity in her music videos makes her a worse example than Swift's recent "Bad Blood".

"I don't get the violence revenge thing?" the 22-year-old singer told Marie Claire. "That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my t***ies out? I'm not sure how t***ies are worse than guns."

"Bad Blood" sees Swiftie enlist a gang of female celebrities including Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne and Jessica Alba to plot revenge against a former friend, believed to be Katy Perry.

The two chart-toppers used to be pals but their friendship turned nasty when Perry allegedly hired backing dancers from beneath Swift during the latter's world tour. Both artists have performed subtle and not-so-subtle digs at the other during recent gigs.

Off topic, Cyrus was also quick to condemn the harsh presentation of women in the music industry compared to men.

"There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it," she said. "Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he's cool. I do it and I'm a druggie w**re."


Regardless, Cyrus isn't about to censor herself anytime soon. "There's nothing left to catch me doing," she boasts. "You want to hack my email so you can find my nude pictures? I'll just f**king put them up."

The "We Can't Stop" star is set to host the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on 30 August after claiming to have been banned from performing after 2013's "Blurred Lines" scandal with Robin Thicke. She is up for seven awards including Video of the Year.
