Cher slammed Miley Cyrus for her infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance in a new USA TODAY interview — but later took to Twitter to clarify her comments.

The music icon originally said the young twerker’s racy routine “was so bad.” “I’m not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl,'” explained Cher to the paper. She continued, “It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”

“If you’re going to go that far, then think about it before you do it,” added Cher. But after the comments spread online, the singing legend started to backtrack. Cher tweeted Wednesday afternoon, “Re:Miley S….I Think What I Think,but Having Said That…I’m a little ashamed (which is Total bullsh*t,how can u B a LITTLE ASHAMED) that I didn’t keep my big Opinionated mouth Shut.”

“WTF is MY PROBLEM ! I’m 2 Old to fall prey 2’Tell us, Oh wise 1,What did YOU think of M.S ?’ she continued. The singer went on, “What I should have said,’I didn’t like it that much,but she’s Pushing The Envelope,being an ARTIST ! She’s Talented,& DIDNT COMMIT A FELONY.'”

“But somehow my ego had 2 get ITS 2 CENTS IN! MY BIG ASS ‘BAD,’ I DIDNT SUPPORT A FELLOW ARTIST. TRUTHFULLY SHE WAS Fkng BRILLIANT,” wrote Cher, “CAUSE… WE’RE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT.” She then added, “Ps this is Not an apology 4 what I Thought,its a Reminder,that if I don’t practice my principles,I loose [sic] Them.”
