Try as she might, Miley Cyrus can't make anyone happy.
Not Sinead O'Connor, not the foam finger creator, and now not even indie rocker Sufjan Stevens.
But this time she isn't being slammed for being
a prostitution whore prostituted out, she's being dissed over her poor grammar!
Sufjan took to his Tumblr page to serve it up hard to Mileybird over her choice of words in the song #GetItRight because she got the grammar wrong. He wrote:
"Dear Miley. I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: “I been laying in this bed all night long.” Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. “I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.” Whatever. I’m not the best lyricist, but you know what I mean. #Get It Right The Next Time. But don’t worry, even Faulkner messed it up. We all make mistakes, and surely this isn’t your worst misdemeanor. But also, Miley, did you know the tense here is also totally wrong. Surely you’ve heard of Present Perfect Continuous Tense (I HAVE BEEN LYING in this bed all night long [hopefully getting some beauty sleep?]). It’s a weird, equivocal, almost purgatorial tense, not quite present, not quite past, not quite here, not quite there. Somewhere in between. I feel that way all the time. It kind of sucks. But I have a feeling your “present perfect continuous” involves a lot more excitement than mine. Anyway, doesn’t that also sum up your career right now? Present. Perfect. Continuous. And Tense. Intense? Girl, you work it like Mike Tyson. Miley, I love you because you’re the Queen, grammatically and anatomically speaking. And you’re the hottest cake in the pan. Don’t ever grow old. Live brightly before your fire fades into total darkness. XXOO Sufjan"
Wellll, at least he paid Mileybird a nice compliment at the end there!
Who wouldn't want to be the hottest cake in the pan?!
And even though he's right about her grammar mistakes, we're guessing the hottest cake in the pan doesn't give a rat's a** about getting it right! She's got twerking to focus on!
