After posting of this original article, Miley Cyrus wrote on Twitter that remarks attributed to her about Beyoncé were “made up.” On Tuesday, the web site Hollywood Life attributed the statements made by Cyrus to a forthcoming issue of Love magazine. “[N]one of the quotes featured on Hollywood Life earlier today relate to the upcoming issue of LOVE in any way,” said Mandi Lennard, a spokesperson for Katie Grand, the Love magazine’s editor.
Miley Cyrus says motherhood is toppling pop star Beyoncé — but never fear, Miley will “fill the void” because she’s the “total package” and “just the best.”
In a leaked interview from the March 2014 issue of Love magazine, Miley said she plans to usurp the Queen Bey. “Beyonce has been a big inspiration to me but she’s been out for such a long time. She’s so talented and I think she’s at the top of the game now but people are always looking for new blood and that’s what I bring to the game now, new blood,” she said, according to Hollywood Life. “I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I’m just the best.
“As Beyoncé grows in motherhood and all the crap it does to your body, it will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now,” Miley said. “I’m the only white female singer that could fill that slot right now and do it right, you know?”
Continuing her aim at the throne, Miley said: “I just feel like I was born for this time right now. I’m just the total package, you know? All things must start and end and I hope to have the same success as other icons in the game when my run is over. But for now, my run is just starting.”
On Thursday afternoon, Miley took to Twitter to say she was not quoted accurately:
That quote people MADE UP about Beyonce just made me lol! Imagine if I said I got “the looks and the curves I’m just better!” Bahahahhaha

The star further added that she is going to get to the bottom of it and make the “liar retract the statement. U can cause ALOT of drama but NOT between me & B!”
