Miley Cyrus has revealed she only said she fancied One Direction star Zayn Malik because her gay friend is a huge fan.
Last July, the We Can't Stop singer tweeted that she and some pals were "stalking" Zayn at a sleepover, with Miley now clearing up reports that she's got a crush on the 1D heartthrob.
Speaking exclusively to MTV News UK, Cyrus insisted she "definitely" wasn't seriously stalking Malik, explaining: "I only said he was cute because someone asked me.
"I was gonna get tomatoes thrown at me in the UK if I didn’t say I had a crush on one of them. So I just had to pick one… I’ve heard a lot of gay boys talk about Zayn so that’s howI know what he looks like."
Miley went on to praise Malik - who dresses as a woman in One Direction's new video for single Best Song Ever - stating: "He’s got great hair! One of my best gay friends has him as his background on his phone, so that’s how I know who he is."
This week, Cyrus lost her VEVO video record to One Direction, with the lads scoring 12.3 million views for Best Song Ever in just 24 hours.
Miley's new single We Can't Stop is out on August 4.
