Having initially said that Miley can "do better" than put on a controversial show at an awards ceremony, Cher told her Twitter followers that she feels "a little ashamed" of letting her opinions get the best of her. Her tweets continued, as she regretted "falling prey" to the prying questions that demanded her opinion, and explained that she is too old have her filter on 24/7. She continued, tweeting, "What I should have said, "I didn't like it that much,but she's Pushing The Envelope,being an ARTIST ! She's Talented,& DIDNT COMMIT A FELONY."

Chers tweets didn't stop there, as she continued to state that she should be supporting Miley as a "fellow artist" and that the VMAs performance was clearly done with the intention of causing controversy. As she pointed out, Miley's performance was a success, because "we're still talking about it."

So that the latest would-be feud in celeb-world ironed out, and now that Cher and Miley are friends again they may look forward to working with each other, rather than working against each other. Miley and Cher both have albums coming out soon, with Cher's 26th solo album, Closer to the Truth, hitting shelves on 24 September. Miley Cyrus will bring out her next album, Bangerz, on 7 October.
