Is Miley Cyrus a bigger fan of John Mayer or is Mayer a bigger fan of Cyrus? The two stars have formed a mutual appreciation society.

On Sunday, Mayer took to Twitter to rave about Cyrus’ free album, Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz, just hours after she performed two of the tracks on “SNL.” After quoting one of the pop star’s lyrics, Mayer wrote, “I’m totally transfixed by this Miley Cyrus album. This is why I love music. You can be one artist one year and the next discover some crazy light inside yourself and shine it everywhere.”

“This Miley album is amazing. You can’t try to make something like this. You just tap the vein and don’t question a single instinct,” continued Mayer. He went on to cite another example, saying, “‘Self control/ is /not something I’m working on’ sung heroically and melodically. Come. On.”

“Okay. I’ll stop tweeting about it now. Comes down to this: This is a masterwork of whack genius. #whackgenius,” he concluded. Cyrus was blown away by the compliments and screengrabbed them for an Instagram photo. “F*ck yeah 2 dis John Mayor [sic] f*ckin tweetinnnn spreeeee!” she wrote in the caption.

Cyrus also tweeted to the crooner, “dude f*ck yeah!!!!” And he wasn’t the only to one to praise the former “Hannah Montana” star. In response to Mayer’s tweets, John Stamos wrote, “Agreed. ‘Karen Don’t Be Sad’ Wow.” As Gossip Cop reported, “Karen Don’t Be Sad” was one of the songs Cyrus performed on “SNL.” TELL US: What do you think of Mayer calling Cyrus a “whack genius”?
