Miley Cyrus catty over YouTube star Rebecca Black?

By Sean O’Connell Miley Cyrus isn’t impressed with overnight sensations like Rebecca Black, and voiced her disdain for those who worship the “Friday” singer to the media.

“It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour,” Cyrus said to Australia’s Daily Telegraph as she prepared to hit the road in support of her new music.

And Cyrus is right. Today’s instant media turns those with limited talent into unlimited stars. (Oh, hi there, Charlie Sheen.) In the surprisingly candid interview, Cyrus also commented on lip-synching, which too many of these YouTube sensations probably have to rely on in the live setting.

“I don’t lip-sync. I would rather someone say I sang like crap than have people see me lip-sync,” she said.

Take that, Ashlee Simpson.
