Miley Cyrus Compares Blackpool To Zombieland
Star provokes backlash from residents of Lancashire seaside town...
Miley Cyrushas sparked an angry backlash from the residents of Blackpool after criticising their town in an interview.
The singer was chatting to In:Demand when she gave her verdict on the famous Lancashire seaside resort.
She said: "Blackpool is one of the strangest places I've ever been to in my entire life.
"I was performing for the Queen, in Blackpool of all places. I got there and was like, 'This is the weirdest place'.
"There was this amusement fair but no-one was there because it wasn't summertime. It reminded me of Zombieland. There was literally nobody.
"I didn't think if I was ever going to perform for the Queen this is where I'd have to go. I was staying in a creepy motel."
Twitter users reacted angrily to Miley's comments, with one writing: "Great people live here with big hearts - and you've just made the majority of us angry."
And another said: "Apparently #Mileycyrus called Blackpool a Zombieland saying all the people are weird etc.. like she can hardly talk the sl*g wannabe!"
Miley has admitted that she considered dropping her surname for professional purposes.
