Miley Cyrus is not happy about her lack of nominations and stage presence at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The singer, who’s turned heads at her provocative performances in the past (think twerking on Robin Thicke with a foam finger), is not set to perform on stage this year, nor was she a part of the nominations that were announced earlier this week for the award show.
While Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande came out on top with the most nominations, fans were surprised that the “Mother’s Daughter” singer, and her “Black Mirror” counterpart Ashley O, were left out of the show.
“Guess I’m not watching the VMAS this year unless Miley performs,” one user wrote in an Instagram post, adding a shrugging emoji.
Cyrus noticed the post and clapped back in agreement, “No (expletive) way.”

Another fan posted in disappointment that the VMAs, “care more about a [expletive] green screen than a message to the world.”
“Nominate anyone but at least do not use the image of Miley to promote their damn prizes @vmas and #SheIsComing #Peace,” the user continued.
To which the singer quipped, “Exactly.”
Other nominations for the award show included breakout star Billie Eilish, who scored nine nominations including artist of the year. Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Halsey and the Jonas Brothers made the cut as well.
Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” tied the record for most weeks at No. 1 with 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, earned eight nominations.
The MTV VMAs, hosted by comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, will air on August 26 at 8 p.m. EDT.
