Miley Cyrus isn't out to make famous friends.
After announcing the release of her new (free) album, "Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz," at the MTV Video Music Awards, The New York Times released an interview with Cyrus saying how she really feels about Taylor Swift's gaggle of gal pals.
Swift and her crew of "musicians, actresses, models and entrepreneurs" hit the VMAs red carpet on Sunday, and while several stars have admitted they'd love to join the 25-year-old "Blank Space" singer's friend group (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan), Cyrus has no interest in this Hollywood clique.
"I’m not trying to be in the squad." she told The Times. "None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them."
This interview took place before Swift and Nicki Minaj performed together at the VMAs, thus officially squashing their Twitter beef. However, later on in the show, Minaj threw major shade at Cyrus, citing when the VMAs host called her "not too kind" in another NY Times piece.
While she's not super friendly with Swift and Minaj, Cyrus does admit that she is extremely inspired by Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, who produced much of the "Dead Petz" project. She's so inspired by him, in fact, that she believes Coyne may possess the spirit of one of her dead pets.
"This is going to sound crazy, [but a Chinese healer] sent me into a state where my dog [Floyd] was lifted out of my lungs and placed on my shoulder," she recalled.
She added that after she petted Floyd for three hours in this alternate state of consciousness, and his energy was let out. "I really think, in a way, his energy went into Wayne’s energy. What he was to me, Wayne has become," the 22-year-old singer explained.
Continuing to gush over the 54-year-old rocker, she added, "I am 100 percent in love with Wayne, and Wayne is in love with me, but it’s nothing sexual in any way. That would be the grossest."
Coyne thinks just as fondly of Cyrus, referring to her as "the new Madonna."
