Miley Cyrus fired back at Perez Hilton yesterday during an appearance on Ryan Seacrest’s syndicated radio show, Billboard reports.
"That’s like, some idiot being an idiot — that’s not me, you know what I’m saying?" Cyrus told Seacrest, according to the article.
Seacrest was interviewing the 17 year-old-star to promote her soon-to-be released album, "Can’t Be Tamed." Said Cyrus, according to the article, ""Isn’t it funny how things that are so negative have to come out right before my record?" Cyrus added. "It’s like, no one can just let a positive thing happen. All I can do is focus on the positive and that I hope this record does well."
Billboard explains the controversy: "On Sunday, Hilton used his Twitter account to post a photo of Cyrus exiting a car and implied that she was not wearing underwear. Media reports have since speculated that if this was the case, Hilton could be charged with distribution of child pornography.
"Hilton has since downplayed the controversy in a video post on his website."
