The Voice‘s judge Blake Shelton had an interesting conversation on Twitter that ended up having him defending both Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus against the haters.
In a rather bizarre Twitter rant, some of Blake’s followers tried to say that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are simply products of P.R. Apparently, Blake is a huge Belieber, as he replied with the following tweets:
@BlakeShelton: You can’t sell records with publicity or hype. No matter what anyone says. People buy music because they’re moved by the song or artist.
@RachelRSL: Disagree: Bieber = nothing but publicity & hype.
@BlakeShelton: Oh!!! Because YOU don’t like him…
As for the Miley twerking’s critics, Blake had some more opinions to offer. When user @planet12law tried to claim:
@planet12law: Miley Cyrus album was only top billing because she twerked on Robin Thicke & swung naked on a Wrecking Ball #FACTS.
@BlakeShelton: Billing didn’t make her album #1. People paying for it did. Also @planet12law…Side note: I personally think “Wrecking Ball” is a great song.
@Alour: @blakeshelton @planet12law And people paid for it because, despite any shenanigans, the music itself is decent.
