Miley Cyrus slams Rebecca Black and YouTube phenoms

miley-cyrus-singing-getty.jpgIt's not often that we are able to praise Miley Cyrus for her comments in the media, so it thrills us to be able to report that Ms. Cyrus is not a Rebecca Black supporter.

Cyrus tells the Australian "Kyle and Jackie O Show" that she doesn't agree with overnight YouTube sensations such as the "Friday" singer. Saying, "It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour."

For just a moment, we're going to chose to ignore the fact that she is the product of a famous father, herself. We give her a free pass here, because there is not a single fiber of our being that believes people should pay money to see Black perform. We would, however, pay to see Cyrus perform, as she's promised not to take a cue from Britney Spears.

"I don't lip-sync. I would rather someone say I sang like crap than have people see me lip-sync," she says.

Cyrus is prepping for an Australian tour in June, which promises a simple, no frills set and tickets at less than $100 a pop. While we love a high energy good circus show, we're finding Cyrus' act oddly refreshing at the moment.
