Days after celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton posted to Twitter a controversial photo of Miley Cyrus stepping out of a car, the teen superstar is speaking out about the photo and how it's impacted her efforts to promote her new album.
In a phone interview on Ryan's radio show Tuesday, Miley said of the tweet, "that's some idiot being an idiot."
Perez has come under fire in recent days for posting an image of what was rumored to be Miley not wearing any underwear. If that were so, Perez could've faced legal action from the 17-year-old star's camp as the photo could be considered child pornography.
Frequently the aim of criticism for her adult outfits and performances, Miley has taken the critiques in stride as she travels the world promoting her new album "Can't Be Tamed."
"Isn't it funny things like that, that are so negative, have to come out right before my record?" asked Miley. "It's like, no one can just let a positive thing happen."
Today, Perez was on the defensive in a video posted to his blog, saying "Miley was clearly wearing underwear. Do you think Miley is that stupid to be out in public without panties?"
Perez went on to say, "Do you think I'm stupid enough to post a photo of Miley if she's not wearing any underwear down there?" he said. "Sure I like to be controversial, but I don't want to go to jail."
