The meaning of Miley Cyrus and RuPaul's 'Cattitude' lyrics is not what you think...

Miley Cyrus has opened up about the meaning of her and RuPaul's 'Cattitude' lyrics and whether or not she is actually dissing Nicki Minaj (and Selena Gomez?) in them and praising Cardi B and (Demi Lovato?).

Miley is back. Ever since the former Disney star first graced our screens as Hannah Montana in 2006, she has entertained us time and time again. From 'Party in the USA' and 'Wrecking Ball' to 'Malibu' and 'Nothing Breaks Like a Heart', she releases hit after hit after hit. Now Miley has returned. Her new EP titled She Is Coming is out now and already entertaining fans. However, the lyrics of one of the tracks are causing a bit of a stir and now Miley has explained the meaning of them.

What does 'Cattitude' mean? Are Miley Cyrus' 'Cattitude' lyrics a diss?

Miley debuted the song live in concert on May 25 and immediately fans were divided by one of the lines. In 'Cattitude', Miley sings: "I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi". Miley then shared a tweet riffing on the controversial line the next day, writing: "I love you, Selena, but I listen to Demi". She also referenced "Queen Beyoncé" in a live performance of the track. Naturally, fans were confused and people immediately accused Miley of dissing Nicki and Selena.

Now Miley has addressed the backlash. Speaking to Capital FM, she said: "I think that you're allowed to enjoy two artists that fill a similar lane." She then added: "I just always grew up collaborating with Selena and Demi and there was never competition. Ariana is one of my best friends. When you are authentically yourself, no one can be you... so you're never worried about someone stealing your place because it can't be taken".

She also said that she doesn't think there's any beef between Cardi and Nicki anymore and continued: "Anytime you want to feel powerful and strong, that's my go to: Cardi and Nicki". So, in other words, it looks like the lyrics are a tongue and cheek reference to the ways in which fans pit female artists against each other. Miley even retweeted a hilarious tweet saying: "i love you hannah but i listen to mikaila".

The song doesn't actually include the Selena and Demi lyric but it does feature the Nicki and Cardi one.

Listen to 'Cattitude' and check out the full lyrics below.

Miley Cyrus & RuPaul - 'Cattitude' lyrics

INTRO: RuPaul
Miley Cyrus
Bitch, you look like you done already done had yours
You better go take your country-ass indoors
And put some damn clothes on
'Cause don't nobody need to be seeing all of that
The library is officially open

VERSE 1: RuPaul
This cat is in heat
Let me ride that beat
My pussy on fire
Pussy fire, well I'm fire
This cat is in heat
Let me ride that beat
My pussy on fire
Pussy fire, well I'm fire

CHORUS: Miley Cyrus
Turn up your gratitude, turn down your attitude
I love my pussy, that means I got cattitude
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you
Turn up your gratitude, turn down your attitude
I love my pussy, that means I got cattitude
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you

VERSE 2: Miley Cyrus
Ayy, go stupid, go dumb
Come and get it 'cause I know you want some
Nashville, Tennessee where I'm from
Since I was three, I've been banging on the drum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum-pum

REFRAIN: Miley Cyrus
Nasty, I'm so nasty, nasty
I'm nasty, I'm so motherfucking nasty

VERSE 3: RuPaul
Ride, shine, clock said pussy time
Bust my pussy nut while I'm fingering your butt
Do I suck dick? You ain't seen shit
Throw a C-note, watch you slide down my throat
Yeah, my pussy fine, I pop it 'cause it's mine
I don't give a fuck if they call me a slut
What I do with a dick, elect me president
Put tears in his eyes when I fuck a brother dry

REFRAIN: Miley Cyrus & RuPaul
I'm so nasty, I'm nasty (Nasty)
I'm nasty, I'm nasty

VERSE 4: Miley Cyrus & RuPaul
I'ma keep working from dawn to dusk
So I can keep buying cars off Elon Musk
The matte black spinners, now that's a must
But I want the whole pie, so leave the crust
I'm the moon, I'm the stars, I'm a Maserati
I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi
I got a new song on the radio, and it goes five
(Four, three, two, one)
That's right, it's a number one
And I can't take you with me as a carry on
I already got my luggage, it's Margiela
And for my 16th birthday, I got carried on
From the house of the queen
Queen, queen, that's what you can call me
Queen, I'ma have you run to your mommy
Queen, I'm the life of the party
Don't worry 'bout me, go and get yourself a hobby
(Sweet pussy of mine)
I'm so nasty
(Sweet pussy of mine)

CHORUS: Miley Cyrus
Turn up your gratitude, turn down your attitude
I love my pussy, that means I got cattitude
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you

POST-CHORUS: Miley Cyrus & RuPaul
(Get it, get it) I'm so nasty
(Cash money) I'm so nasty
(Get it, get it, got it good)

CHORUS: Miley Cyrus
Turn up your gratitude, turn down your attitude
I love my pussy, that means I got cattitude
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you
If you don't feel what I'm saying, I don't fuck with you

BRIDGE: Miley Cyrus
Back up, you're squashing my charisma
Why I gotta be so motherfucking extra?
Back up, you're squashing my charisma
Why I gotta be so motherfucking extra?

POST-CHORUS: Miley Cyrus & RuPaul
(Get it, get it) I'm so nasty
(Cash Money) I'm nasty
(Get it, get it) I'm so nasty
(Cash Money) I'm so motherfucking nasty

OUTRO: Miley Cyrus
You're just mad 'cause your hair is flat
(I'm so motherfucking nasty)
You're just mad 'cause your hair is flat
(I'm so motherfucking nasty)
