Kanye West wasn’t the only singer Radiohead allegedly dissed at the Grammys. Teen pop star Miley Cyrus was so devastated that her fellow Grammy performers wouldn’t chill with her backstage, she left the ceremony early! So she promises to “ruin” them. This latest drama was revealed on the Johnjay & Rich radio show on Tuesday. Here’s what happened.

There’s a band Miley Cyrus would be “freaking out, crying, on my knees” if she met, she tells the DJs. (I think we can relate to that much, Thom Yorke is dreamy.) She goes on to say she asked her manager to pull every string so she could just meet her heroes. Radiohead’s response? “We don’t really do that kind of thing.” It’s difficult to be sure, because Miley speaks really fast and doesn’t enunciate, but it sounds like Radiohead rebuffed her to her face. Which means I can see why she’d be upset (though you’d think this #1 superfan would know that Thom Yorke is a little shy?), but she doesn’t have to go on the radio and play a ten-minute game having everyone guess who dissed her.

Other highlights if you listen to the whole thing: Miley heard a crazy rumor that Kings of Leon are preacher’s sons. CRAZY. And, in response to the host’s guess the offending artist was Boyz II Men? “I don’t listen to rap.” At the very end, she sings a line of “Creep” to the RADIO DJ who claims to not know who Radiohead is. Audio below, via The Modern Age.

Letcha know when Thom responds on his LiveJournal.

    this shit just keeps getting better

    • I never much understood the appeal of gossip and such.

      but lately, all this shitflinging on stereogum. Good lord hilarious.

    • btw, all her music is at http://vastfm.com/?a=miley+cyrus if anyone wants to listen

      Radiohead didn’t snub her. They just said they weren’t interested in meeting anyone other than other artists that night. Miley, realizing that she wasn’t herself an artist (kudos to her for her honesty) was offended and hurt. Tough break kid. Maybe when Daddy is done building that career arround you, and you become capable of independent thought and creation, you might be taken seriously. Maybe

      miley, you are a dunce. first of all if you love them so much, why in the fucking world would you diss them?

      maybe they didnt want to meet you because you are a wierdo. and hey fag,…. its “im a creep”.

      whatever respect you were earning from me.. you lost it.

    • I dont know why so many people hate her. I just bought Miley Cyrus tickets for her Australian tour in Sydney.

  2. file this under Gabe’s You Can Make It Up.

    So by “destroy” does that mean she’s going to start covering their songs in concerts?

  5. Imokay  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 +1

    Makes me love Radiohead even more.

  6. Radiohead are offically not cool anymore.

    Please tell me this going to make The Soup this week.

    “they don’t do stinkin’ meet just one LITTLE KID who would cry and it would make their life…”

    yup. i guess there are thousands of LITTLE KIDS that let their managers “pull some strings” to meet radiohead.

    Miley Cyrus: shut the fuck up and crawl back up Mickey Mouse’s asshole.

    Thom Yorke: your snubbery is commendable.

  11. Nice Miley cleave shot…maybe Thom didn’t want to go to jail.

  12. hipsters everywhere  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    its finally happened, radiohead has jumped the shark. i’m going to go have a sad, smoke half a pack of lucky strikes, put on my kefia and light my LP of OK Computer on fire.

    Saying “We don’t really do that kind of thing,” doesn’t really qualify as mean.

  14. Michael_  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    No wonder Thom and co. steer clear of the entire awards thing — I would too if every artless musician fanboy of your’s was pestering to hang out with you because you both so happen to be musicians, and thus you’re apparently BFFs.

  15. “[sob] I’m obsessed [sob], sooo awesome…”

    Miley makes me want to kill myself

  16. Brian  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    haha. its like the rap wars of the early 90′s, Miley Cyrus vs. Thom Yorke, Kanye vs. Thom Yorke, Wayne Coyne vs. The Arcade Fire, Online music Bloggers vs. the killers… Its a war zone.

  17. Somehow I don’t see Ms. Miley’s career outlasting Radiohead’s. Call it a hunch.

  18. Who is Miley Cyrus?

  19. Simon  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    This is much better than that whole Coyne/Butler thing. They’re giants on the same huge pedestals firing potshots at each other, while this makes me think more of Scrappy Doo windmilling at a supposed monster.

  20. Uhhh  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Hahahahah, This is the coolest thing Radiohead has done since letting fans pay what they want for In Rainbows.

    Hannah Montana let down and hanging around…

  21. Okay, she isn’t a big enough fan. I’m sure everyone here has heard the horror stories of fans meeting Thom and him telling them to blow off.

    Would I bang Miley Cyrus? Two years ago maybe.

    • FrostBiteBoy  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

      “Would I bang Miley Cyrus? Two years ago maybe.”

      Really Earl???
      She was 14 then, you disturbed kiddie-diddler you.

      Quick someone call a cop on this guy before he touches any innocent children…..

  23. it’s miley! she says “its not current” in reference to the band (radiohead). um what the hell? at least she got to hang with chris martin. hopefully she got some GOOP advice.

  24. If only she had cancer…in her ass!

  25. bbbbbb  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Why does she feel so entitled?

    - Chris Crocker

    This whole interview hurts. Why wont her mother reign her in?

  27. Black Jesus  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Once again, Thom Yorke is the coolest motherfucker on the planet!

  28. glass  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    First Radiohead disses Kanye and now Miley…the nerve! Doesn’t he know who they are?
    (haha… this just made my day. Thank you).

  29. So is Stereogum being sponsored by TMZ this week?

  30. stupit bint

  31. Who the hell listens to these shit radio shows?

  32. You mean Miley Cyrus has heard Radiohead and still continues to sound like she does? This is worse that Panic at the Disco acting like stupid fan boys over Tom Waits.

  33. Someone needs to explain the concept of “indie cred” to young Miley.

  34. sir thom of yorke   |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Thom you is a Legend,(jonny too).ruin Radiohead I think not child!.wouldn’t be at all surprised if thom didn’t even no who the fuck you are. I certainly don’t.

  35. “‘Sex on Fire’ is one of the greatest songs ever.”

  36. This feud has more to do with 18th century British imperialism than people realize.

  37. wait this is real?

  38. grzond  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Here’s how it went down:

    Ed (elbowing Johnny): ?Geez, what a little crybaby!?
    Colin: ?You gonna cry all day, crybaby??
    Thom: ?You know, everyone has problems, it doesn?t mean you have to go and be a little crybaby about it.?
    Ed: ?C?mon guys, let?s go, this kid is totally not cool.?
    Thom: ?Yeah, that?s the most uncool kid I?ve ever met.?
    Phil: ?Little crybaby.?

      Dear god I hope other people get what you are referencing. This post does not have nearly enough votes.

  39. Brianna  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    “in response to the host’s guess the offending artist was Boyz II Men? ‘I don’t listen to rap.’”
    Oy. Dumb as a sack of wet mice.

    Arrest this girl, her Hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill.
    This is what you get when you mess with us……

  41. Eric  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    Is she going to “ruin” them by getting the Radiohead 10-13 year old girl demographic to turn against them?

  42. The fact that Chris Martin would hang out with Miley Cyrus and Thom Yorke wouldn’t perfectly categorizes those two as a douchebag and a music god, respectively

  43. my God morning radio shows are terrible. why does she sound like a fifty year old woman that has smoked for thirty years?

  44. they went and broke her heart, her achy-breaky heart. there I said it.

    What Bizarro Universe have I wandered into!?!?!

  46. brndn  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    My brain jumped out the window when she said she doesn’t like pop music.

  47. Dan   |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    All you rage-filled assholes ragging on U2 and calling them the devil… can you now see your real enemy? You look so silly throwing daggers at Bono when Miley walks the earth unbloodied.

  48. André  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    What does he mean with “i don´t know who Radiohead are”!
    Not saying that they are incredibly famous (which they kinda are) BUT WAS HE IN A FREAKIN’ COMA FOR THE PAST YEAR ?
    What about the whole “pay whatever you want for In Colours” , IT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS ! (and people´s mouths etc.)
    HOW DID HE GET A RADIO SHOW! give me his job, I deserve it way more than him ( unfortunadly it involves being in the same room as Miley Cyrus)

  49. d@ve  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

    maybe if miley wasn’t an immature little turd they would’ve posed for a few pictures. For her to react as she did just goes to show they were right to diss the little snob.

  50. oh please, the only reason she got into music wasn’t because of Radiohead. it was because her father needed another source of revenue since his country music days were washed up. she should take her Jesus-promise ring and cram it up her ass

    • jonathan blue thumb  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

      …the intro to “Sweet Jane” with Scorcese ballet…that’s the just the trailer…

    • I banged Miley, dudebro!!!  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2009 0

      She wasn’t wearing a promise ring when I met her, but she sure as heck had something crammed up her ass! Hooyah!!!
