Ed Sheeran Shades Miley Cyrus: “An Amazing Voice…Packaged The Wrong Way”

In a recent interview with The Mirror, British crooner Ed Sheeran was asked about Miley Cyrus (seriously, it must be absolutely demoralizing to be a musician right now trying to do some promo and the only thing everyone wants to talk to you about is this other artist and her ass-shaking). Anyway, Sheeran was quick to compliment Cyrus, saying, “I think she’s got an amazing voice.”

But he immediately followed that with a critique of her new bad girl image. “I just think she’s packaged the wrong way,” Sheeran said. “When I first heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ I thought it was a brilliant song, but the video distracts too much from it.”

Sheeran also took issue with the way twerking has been portrayed post-Miley. “I think encouraging young people to twerk might be a bad thing. It’s a stripper’s move. If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn’t want her twerking.” But what if that twerking makes her millions of dollars??

Do you think Sheeran’s being too puritanical, or does he have a point? Let us know in the comments.

    He has a massive point. I can’t believe people encourage teens to twerk. If i had kids….I’d not want them to listen to Miley purely on her image….but its sad cause she does have a lovely voice. She was already famous…i just think she is trying too hard & Sharon Stone circa 1990 wants her look back .

    We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals
