''She wants the spotlight on her and taking shots at Taylor is a good way to do it.''

In the latest issue of Marie Claire, Miley, 22, questioned why she was blasted for stripping down in music videos and photohoots, while Taylor and pals - including Lena Dunham and Selena Gomez - strutted around with weapons in her latest video.

Miley said: ''I don't get the violence-revenge thing. That's supposed to be a good example? And I'm a bad role model because I'm running around with my t****es out? I'm not sure how t****es are worse than guns.''
