Kasabian have referred to Miley Cyrus as a "f***ing nightmare" because she's sexualised her image to make money
Kasabian have branded Miley Cyrus a "f***ing nightmare".
The British band have hit out at the music industry for promoting the 21-year-old singer with a sexualised image in order to make money from her.
Guitarist Serge Pizzorno said: "I don't really know what that world is, man. It's just a f**king money making thing.
"We [the music industry] created Miley Cyrus, man, that's our fault. She's just a f***ing accumulation of internet porn, f**king hip-hop, f**king Disney world. She's just a f**king nightmare of the 21st century.
"It's not her fault, but we created that. The way she goes about her business, Twitter, all this b*****ks, blows my mind."
Miley has been criticised for being a bad role model after a string of controversial performances last year and frontman Tom Meighan is adamant he won't let his 20-month-old daughter Mimi grow up aspiring to be like the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker.
He told NME magazine: "I'll tell you something, my daughter's not going to be anything like her, no way."
Meanwhile Kasabian recently said their new album was inspired by Kanye West's experimental comeback album 'Yeezus', which was both praised and torn apart by critics upon its release last summer.
Serge said previously: "The moves he pulled, for the person he is and how mainstream he is, you have to take your hat off. In rock music I don't think anyone's pulled that move. Not to sound like Kanye, but to go 'f**k it'. I wanted to do the same. I want people to listen to a rock band who play guitars, but are not just a rock band."
