Blake Shelton defends Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber

Who knew Blake Shelton was a Belieber? 

On Tuesday, Blake Shelton had an interesting conversation on Twitter that ended up having him, oddly enough, defending both Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus against the haters.

First off, a guy named L*A*W, a Grammy-nominated guy (not sure for what and I'm too lazy to look), began a conversation about Miley Cyrus' new album only being what it is (debuting at #1) because of her recent twerking and craziness.  

"Miley Cyrus album was only top billing because she twerked on Robin Thicke & swung naked on a Wrecking Ball #FACTS," he tweeted

Lots of people were agreeing with him, but then something interesting happened … Blake Shelton got involved. 

"Billing didn't make her album #1. People paying money for it did," Blake wrote. 

Other fans got involved and Blake countered their arguments with: "You can't sell records with publicity or hype. No matter what anyone says. People buy music because they're moved by the song or artist.."

And then: "Side note: I personally think "Wrecking Ball" is a great song.."
