VIDEO: Miley Cyrus Throws Selena Gomez Cardboard Cutout During Concert
Several concertgoers caught the moment on video (see below). In the footage, Cyrus is seen taking from the crowd a cardboard body with Gomez’s face taped to it.
She continues singing the defiant track until hurling “Gomez” from the stage. We’re sure this will be used to stoke controversy, even though it appears to be fairly spontaneous and innocuous.
Within fan bases, Cyrus and Gomez are widely considered to be enemies. It’s interesting, considering their similar careers. Both were child stars who became household names thanks to Disney Channel shows (“Hannah Montana” and “The Wizards of Waverly Place,” respectively). They both launched singing careers and left the small screen to take on movies.
Of course, the media loves pitting two female stars against each other. Week in and week out, Gossip Cop is often forced to correct made up “feud” stories between stars who actually aren’t fighting over anything, but are just said to be simply because they’re both women.
It’s usually false, sensational and sexist. And sadly, it’s now likely to happen with Gomez and Cyrus, regardless of whatever may or may not actually be the status of their friendship.
