MCR Frontman Rips Miley Cyrus, 'Jersey Shore'

MCR Frontman Rips Miley Cyrus, 'Jersey Shore'-photo

My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way is finding out exactly how easy it is to get millions of pop culture fans in a tizzy: Insult Miley Cyrus and Jersey Shore in the same interview.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Way – who is promoting the release of his band's new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys  – Way is asked about his home state of New Jersey, and how he feels about the phenomenon that is Jersey Shore. Way says he initially found the show "endearing," but then opens up the attack.

I realized all they do is fight each other--not even other people anymore, I guess because they're all famous now and might get sued. Towards the end, the show started to get foul. The Situation got real weird with these sad, really gross characteristics, so I fell out almost as easily as I fell in. But If you go the Jersey shore, it really is like that. You'll get your fucking nose broken. I knew guys just like that. My wife loves the show so I’d watch it with her, but there were some nights when I was, like, OK, I’m gonna go hang out on Ebay.

When pressed shortly after in the interview about how Kanye West would likely block MCR from snagging the top spot on the Billboard charts, the conversation goes in an unexpected direction. Way says that Miley Cyrus stole the number one spot from them the last time, venting:

I think it's almost in the cards for us to be number 2.  We've never been number 1. We got our ass kicked by Miley Cyrus last time, back when nobody knew who she was ... I felt like we’d worked towards it and it felt like it was in the cards. We expected it--like, who can beat us? A lip syncing child, that’s who.

So what current pop culture staple doesn't get Way riled up? Glee, which he says "would be funny" if there were ever an MCR episode.

    She did lip synch when swtiching with a double on stage, to get ready for the next song (it was on youtube like in 2007). He is right. Plus most of her songs weren't even hers on that cd, which was really unfair. Source i USED TO BE FAN OF HERS =/

    this guys legit DUMB. because everyone knows how Miley Cyrus sings live. she has way to many flaws in her voice, and her voice sounds way too real/emotional for her to ever be lip singing during her performances, or even her record. her record might have some corrections to her voice but i mean which celeb doesn't. this a f*cking jealous bastard. and he doesn't know the power of children, back then and now. hehehe Gerard Way owns all m'dear , and you poor poor disney girlies will arrive in reality someday , just hold on until that time ;) MCR beats Miley any day x

    hahaha I love Gerard - you little disney girlies need to grow up , Gerard's just telling it like it is - Miley Cyrus is a talentless , spoiled , little rich girl - with a semi famous 'daddy'. MCR is real music and Gerard Way is pure awesomeness. And he's allowed to have an opinion on things... right? He's not jealous BTW I don't think anyone sane would be jealous of Miley Cyrus =P

    What the hell would he be jealous of? A talentless kid whose 5 seconds of fame are almost up? Bitter? Hell no. He is just telling the truth whether you like it or not. He doesn't have to put anyone down to increase his popularity. He has plenty of fans. I think they kind of fixed it so that she would get the #1 spot.

    Miley Cyrus has more talent in her little finger than MCR and their idiot frontman. Cyrus kicked their asses because of her HUGE loyal fanbase who happen to think she can sing and sing well:Something MCR will never have.

    @becca, you haters can't have it both ways: the message boards were filled with comments about what a lousy vocal performance Cyrus gave at last week's AMAs, and yet, here you are with the tire debunked claim that she lipsyncs all her performances. Either Miley Cyrus lipsyncs or she gave a bad vocal performance, but not both. The fact of the mater is that anyone who knows anything about lipsyncing can take a look at the thousands of live Miley Cyrus performances on Youtube and clearly see that she is not lipsyncing. You may not have the expertise to know that, but it's pretty clear to most people. You can see lots of clear differences in the vocal performances, even when you look at her performing the same song on two consecutive nights. Plus that fact that Miley, although over all a great singer, has on occasion delivered disastrously bad vocal performances. Compare that with, say, Britney Spears, who has always been a lip syncer and you'll find out that Britney's performances always sound exactly alike--because she always uses the same vocal track--and that she never has a bad vocal day, because she never sings live. There's no doubt that Miley Cyrus always gives a live vocal performance in live concerts. 100% agree

  • Brooks
    Brooks

    1) she was a child. she was 14 at the time/ 2) she is notorious for never singing live. she uses a vocal track. she was a child. who lipsynced. i dont understand how that is incorrect. please, somebody explain to me how she wasnt a child and how she didnt lipsync. really, go ahead. If you actually took the time to listen to her cd's and then live you would know she doesnt lip sync.

  • Brooks
    Brooks

    sounds a little bitter and jealous to me. pretty sad when you have to stoop low and insult someone else to increase your popularity.

  • Brooks
    Brooks

    ahaha, yeah right. Why the f*ck would he be jealous of a teenage girl who has no talent? I think maybe you're jealous because you know Miley Cyrus' popularity will die out before her 21st birthday. good luck with the 21st birthday thing. no chance

  • Veronkimo

    Miley Cyrus performs all of her songs live! She almost always sounds the same as on her album. She is usually always on pitch, which can't be said for other artists out there. What people need to realize is that they are criticizing her voice, not her singing. She is a great singer, the thing is that some people her actual voice annoying. Also, she does a lot of dancing in her performances and usually in high heels. I would like to see Gerard do that and sound half as good. *FYI: I like MCR, but I also like Miley. That diss was just in bad taste and a little bit ignorant.

    This guy Way is not so stupid. I had never heard of him or his band before he insulted Miley Cyrus, right before his new album comes out, and now I know who he is. BTW, Miley Cyrus's live performances are all live, no lipsyncing, but I'm guessing that when you're trying to hitch a ride on someone else's star, as he is, the truth doesn't matter much to you. if they are live, they are horrible!

    I'm gonna say that neither Miley Cyrus or Gerard Way is perfect. Gerard has a right to act like a "jerk" if he wants to. Why? Because he's human. We all act like jerks sometime, I do recall Miley talking sh*t about a certain person. Just sayin' You're smart!!!!

    he can't sing.. so he shouldn't be insulting Gerard Way is a vocal genious, who have proven time and time again that he and My Chemical Romance are among the best bands there is. His statement is not false. At the time, she was known as Hannah Montana. who the hell knew who Miley Cyrus was? And tho she might not lip sync now, I dare say she did during those...dark... years, as all of Disney's little puppets are. As for Jersey Shore, he is too mild in his so called critic. If you behaved like those Aholes where I'm from, they'd lock you in a mental institution and throw away the key. As for those who claim he is trying to live on others success, get real. Like MCR needs that. World wide they have legions of fans, and more faithful ones than a surten Cyrus.

  • sara

    Speaking as someone who used to like MCR and never liked Miley. Gerard was out of line. I remember back when people would do this same thing to MCR. Someone Like Korn would have a new CD coming and they would call out MCR for being Crap. MCR would take the high road. They would say they just have a CD to sell and need attention. It's sad to see that Gerard needs to sink to that level to get the bands name out there again. It doesn't sound like a joke and it sound like he is really but hurt about what happen. Why else would he say something after four years.

    The point is..whether she lip-syncs or not, she still f*cking sucks ass! Gerard is right to criticize all these lame Pop culture phenomenons, Jersey Shore is the most horrible and degrading show I have EVER seen, proves that Americans are dumb if they watch shows like that, I tried watching it and I swear I lost a few brain cells. It is horrible to see grown ass men treat women like filth. and Miley .. a Disney slut with little or no talent. she got lucky because of Disney.

    ahahahha, Gerard is amazing. Miley Cyrus needs to disappear forever. And Jersey Shore is absolute sh*t. And I find it funny that everyone is going to freak out about what he said, and what I just said is a way bigger insult. He was barely even insulting either thing. It is a testament to our society that a "lip synching child" will sell more records than an amazing, real band. My Chemical Romance can play instruments, sing, perform, etc. All Miley can do is act horribly and sing even worse. totalll agree....miley's music has nothing on mcr's

I guess you've been living under a rock or you're very very young. But I'm going to guess that you're a tweenie. MCR was pretty damned big a few years ago when you were still in diapers.
