Radiohead made Miley Cyrus cry. That's what the Hannah Montana star told the syndicated Johnjay and Rich Show on Tuesday, March 3rd, after Cyrus admitted that band snubbed her backstage at the Grammys. The audio above is a very challenging listen, with Miley running off on countless tangents and often forgetting she's supposed to talk into the microphone while the DJs interrupt her with dull questions. So here's the summary: Miley was about four dressing rooms away from Thom Yorke, so she asked her manager to reach out to his people so the two could meet, because who knew, Miley loves Radiohead. "They're like, my rock god. I am obsessed with them. This is the only person I would probably cry over. I would cry," Cyrus said on air.
So what was Radiohead's response when offered the chance to meet Miley Cyrus? "We don't really do that," the band's reps told Miley's manager. That was enough to make Cyrus refer to the band as "Stinkin' Radiohead!" From what we know, Yorke is a notoriously shy guy who probably wasn't in the mood to hang out with a chirpy star-struck teenager who has probably never heard Hail to the Thief, discussing unicorns and Nick Jonas in the hours before his band was set to perform at their very first American awards show. Plus, Yorke had already snubbed Kanye West, so there was no way Miley Cyrus was going to get a meet-and-greet.
Cyrus said she was so hurt by Yorke's dismissal, she didn't even watch their performance of "15 Step" with the USC Marching Band. "I'm gonna ruin them, I'm gonna tell everyone," Cyrus threatened. She'll definitely be downloading their next album for free instead of paying-what-she-wants. Plus, Radiohead's Radio Disney days are so over, and you can expect to see a big dip in sales of In Rainbows in the "Female Aged 5-11" demographic.
