Miley Cyrus has never been one to hold back her views and now she has waded into a new political row with the Italian design duo Dolce & Gabbana.
Back in 2015, Dolce & Gabbana co-founders Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce (who are both openly gay) got into hot water after giving a magazine interview in which they made controversial statements about gay parenting and IVF being unnatural.
Dolce had said back then: ‘We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.’
Following its publications a number of celebrities came forward to condemn the brand including Elton John and Victoria Beckham.
Dolce ended up making an apology in Vogue.
But it seems not everyone is as forgiving and Miley let it be known she still disagrees with the fashion house’s politics.
On Saturday, the Malibu singer’s Cyrus’s 23-year-old brother Braison walked in the brand’s fashion show in Milan.
It was his first time on a runway and Miley congratulated him saying: ‘Congrats @braisonccyrus on walking in your 1st runway show…
‘It’s never been my little brothers dream to be a model as HE is one of the most talented musicians my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing…
‘BUT it is a Cyrus family trait to try everything once (within reason HA) and to embrace opportunities that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone! We believe in trying something new everyday!
‘I love you Prince Suga Bear and seriously congratulations on your experience! I am so proud of you always…. From Nashville to Italy! 👑❤️👑❤️👑❤️.’
All smooth sailing.
But then the musician threw shade at the design duo with a postscript, saying: ‘PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…. but I do support your company’s effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!’
Stefano was not prepared to take Miley’s swipe and reposted her picture with his scathing comeback…
Miley’s brother has not commented on either post.
Probably for the best.
