This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
"The support of other artists is important because there are not many people who can relate to what I'm going through right now. Kanye West is one of those people, and even Katy Perry has been so cool."
Miley thinks Katy's support is especially touching as the Roar singer could just treat her as a rival, or even an enemy! She said:
"It's easy for Kanye to support me because we’re in totally separate lanes of competition, but for Katy to say that she appreciates what I'm really doing for the pop industry, that keeps you going. And I mean, who cares what the media buzz is if Kanye West is telling you that you're the sh*t?"
Well, we're glad to hear Katy and Kanye are being so magnanimous! It isn't always easy to stand up for people you admire.
And we think it show Miley's true character to be so gracious about it. Now if only this trio could get together in the studio…
