Did Miley Cyrus throw some shade to Ed Sheeran? Although Cyrus is getting major attention for shedding light on the homeless youth, by letting a former homeless person Jesse accept her MTV VMA award, many are overlooking a potentially juicy side plot that happened during the awards ceremony.
It was a blink and you’ll miss it moment but Miley Cyrus definitely went there when Ed Sheeran walked past her to accept his MTV moon man award. It was earlier in the night before Cyrus made one of the biggest statements of the night.
According to US Weekly, it happened when Ed Sheeran walked up to accept the “Best Male Video” award. While he was passing Miley Cyrus, who was sitting with Katy Perry and Sam Smith for most of the night, she mouthed, “Ass—-.” Unfortunately Sheeran didn’t react to Miley’s comment, and that was it between the public spat. Odds are he probably didn’t even realize Cyrus was mouthing anything.
So why is Miley Cyrus mad at Ed Sheeran? Well, it all goes back to Ed Sheeran’s criticism of Cyrus’ old VMA performance. Back in January the music man compared Cyrus to a stripper while on the red carpet at the Grammys.
As E! reported, Sheeran took a not-so-subtle shot at Miley Cyrus when speaking about friend Taylor Swift’s dance moves.
“Twerking is what strippers do. It’s a fact. If you go to a strip club, not that I go to strip clubs, but if you go to a strip club, they twerk.”
Then talking directly into the camera Ed said:
“You shouldn’t be encouraging little kids to twerk. Stop doing this, Miley Cyrus, please. Stop. Stop. Sing ‘Wrecking Ball.’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ is a great song.”
Although most people didn’t catch Miley Cyrus’ diss to Ed Sheeran, Twitter certainly did. Here’s a few responses:
Miley Cyrus called Ed an asshole.. Atleast he’s been nominated for a Grammy and has only been in the US for like 2 years. #yousuck

I actually found Miley Cyrus okay right up to the point when she thought it acceptable to called Ed an Asshole as he goes to collect his VMA
