Lady Gaga said she doesn’t like to “pass judgement” on fellow pop singer Miley Cyrus.
“I don’t like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it’s about entertainment,” the “Applause” singer told The Sun.
“It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don’t want to contribute to that,” the 27-year-old Grammy winner added. “I do things that are polarizing sometimes but that’s what it’s all about.”
As for 20-year-old Cyrus, she isn’t too worried about the backlash from her performance.
“I’m a totally different person to who I was when I was 16 or 18,” the former Hannah Montana star told We Love Pop.“I wanted to let people see that side of me, just not the glammed up beauty shot girl as that’s just not me.”
Cyrus added, “Haters are gonna hate, but the haters are also gonna click on your YouTube video to watch it so I really don’t care. You can help me break records, even if you were just watching to hate on me. I break records, so I won!”
This isn’t the first time Miley Cyrus has addressed her “haters.” Last month, Cyrus said that she doesn’t let negativity on social media bother her.
“Haters keep me mad motivated. People that are, I guess, jealous, that kind of just hate on me, make me want to do even better,” she told ET Canada.
“If you don’t like me, it’s just the fact that I know the reason you hate me is because jealousy eats people from the inside out,” she added. “People that are jealous and hate on me… that makes me want to work even better because they can’t take that away from me.”
