Miley Cyrus Might Have Called Ed Sheeran An 'A--hole' At The VMAs

Miley Cyrus apparently called Ed Sheeran an "asshole" as he passed by her when he went to accept the VMA award for Best Male Video on Aug. 24.

This is according to Us Weekly, Gossip Cop, Perez Hilton and a number of other websites who squinted hard enough at the GIF below to make out Cyrus apparently mouthing the words at Sheeran:


Perhaps not too surprisingly, Cyrus seems not to be a fan of the Sheeran's. It might have something to do with the fact he criticized the 21-year-old singer for her twerking in a September 2013 interview, telling The Mirror, "It’s a stripper’s move. If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn’t want her twerking. When I first heard 'Wrecking Ball,' I thought it was a brilliant song. But the video distracts too much from it."

We can't say for certain if Cyrus did in fact call Sheeran an asshole, but given that Cyrus was the only one at the VMAs last night to use her award for a completely selfless cause, we don't really care what she may or may not have called him.
