Has Miley Cyrus been throwing shade at Taylor Swift? Rumor has it that Cyrus referred to Swift as "sexless," "stuck up" and "frigid." According to OK! (via a May 22 Hollywood Life report), "she thinks Taylor is stuck up and can’t deal with how prissy she is. Miley can’t stand girly girls. She’s telling everyone that Taylor is a ‘sexless, frigid ice princess’ who ‘bored’ Harry Styles out of bed."

It is unconfirmed whether or not Cyrus actually uttered those words. Hollywood Life points out that the "Wrecking Ball" singer is busy in Europe for her Bangerz tour. She probably has better things to do than sit around and trash Swift.

Still, rumors of a feud between Cyrus and Swift have floated around for awhile. Last summer, Life & Style claimed that the "22" singer had referred to Cyrus' controversial MTV VMA performance as "grotesque" and "disgusting." However, Swift's rep denied that she had made that statement.

Later, in a September interview with Rolling Stone, the "We Can't Stop" singer defended her VMA wardrobe choices, taking a subtle dig at the country cutie in the process. As she commented, "I thought that’s what the VMAs were all about! It’s not the Grammys or the Oscars. You’re not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style. It’s supposed to be fun!"

The rumored fallout between them dates as far back as 2008. According to OK!, the ladies were close friends until Nick Jonas dumped Cyrus, and Swift began dating his brother, Joe Jonas. Cyrus was heartbroken over losing both a boyfriend and a gal pal. According to an insider, "Miley started getting a bit edgy and cocky, and Taylor ran away, taking the Jonas brothers with her! It was as if Miley lost her girlfriend, boyfriend and a friend in a matter of months--it was pretty rough on her."

Still, whatever may or may not have gone down between them in 2008, it doesn't seem likely that Cyrus would make such hurtful unprovoked comments about Swift. Having gone through a difficult breakup with Liam Hemsworth, as well an extended hospital stay, it seems like she would have more important things to worry about than "sexless" Taylor Swift.

Besides, although Cyrus and Swift carry themselves very differently, the "Last Song" star seems to approach life with a live and let live attitude. As she explained in an October Cosmopolitan interview, she strives to be true to herself, while still being respectful to other artists in the industry. "I have a song that's like, 'Stay in your lane,' because I'm not going to be you and you're definitely not going to be me, so don't throw shade. I don't ever throw shade at anyone."

Did Miley Cyrus really refer to Taylor Swift as "sexless," "stuck up," and "frigid"? If so, what could have provoked such comments? Did a fallout really take place between them? Was Cyrus hurt by Swift's relationship with Joe Jonas in 2008? Did Swift really diss Cyrus' VMA performance? Was Cyrus out of line in commenting on Swift's "Vanna White" dress?
