Miley Cyrus Throws Epic Shade At Katy Perry Over Tongue Quip: See Her Scathing Tweet

In comparison to the leading ladies of R&B, pop divas generally keep it cute on Twitter. The exception to that rule is Miley Cyrus. She just scalped Katy Perry — root and all — for joking about their concert kiss in an Australian radio interview. The Prism diva quipped that her colleague wanted more than she was willing to give during their embrace, exclaiming “who knows where that tongue has been?”

Well, Miley failed to see the humor. The “Adore You” singer jumped on Twitter this morning (March 6) and fired shots. “Girl if ur worried abt where tongues have been good thing ur ex boo is ur EX BOO cause we ALL know where THAT [tongue] been,” she sniped — a clear reference to that fact that Katy’s ex-boyfriend John Mayer has been around the block several thousand times.

This is unusually mean-spirited from Miley. It was pretty obvious that Katy was joking about Miley’s tongue — she is, after all, famous for poking it out at every available opportunity — and could have thought of a cuter comeback than attacking the “Dark Horse” hitmaker’s ex. Perhaps it’s time for the 21-year-old to let some light in while listening to “Choose Your Battles”. See her scathing tweet after the jump.

Realizing that she had crossed the line, Miley then tried to soften the blow with this tweet:
