Miley Cyrus is too busy pretending not to know who One Direction are and scrambling for an IV to alleviate her dehydration for all things "urban" (her words, not ours) to realize when she's a pot calling a kettle black.

Case in point? She's instructing Justin Bieber to take time away from the spotlight so people won't get sick of him -- and so he can party in private.

"I told Justin to take a bit of time out and people aren't so obsessed with you and nit-pick," she told the Sunday People (via The Mirror).

"When you're not around, all they want is your music," she explained. "They want to see what the next thing is. But when your music is out they just want to talk s--- about you."

To be fair, when the "next thing" is a Rihanna rihject, she may be wrong.

"When you’re a worldwide star, everyone sees everything," she continued. "Lots of people make a video and put it on Instagram, some people might think it's funny but because it's Justin Bieber, it's like, really bad."

How does she suggest he deal in the meantime? "I always tell him just to be cool and not talk about it because when you talk it fuels the fire," she said, clearly unaware of the irony behind her flapping gums. "He's still stupid though. But everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up."

Yeah, like wearing grills and trying to twerk. Take a seat, sweetpea.
