    YAS, Miley.

    Besides her gorgeous voice and talent, one thing's for sure about Miley Cyrus: She loves Drag Race and drag culture.

    She's been a special guest judge and has even gone undercover in drag as a crew member on the show.

    Well Miley was on former MMA fighter Joe Rogan's podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, where her love of drag came up.

    "I love RuPaul's Drag Race. They do death drops in a whole other way than you guys do on the mats," she said, referencing Joe's martial arts background.

    "When I said earlier I'm not religious, that's a lie, I am RuPaul-sbyterian. I fuck with RuPaul. RuPaul is God."

    Death drops are a big dance move in drag, where the queens fall backward, tucking one leg back. Here is a compilation — it's definitely worth seeing.

    After explaining the concept of the show to Joe, Miley had production play some videos of drag queens doing death drops. "This is my favorite — Alyssa Edwards!"

    They also showed clips of Latrice Royale and Kennedy Davenport doing death drops and splits, to which Joe said, "They all do the same move."

    First of all, untrue. Every death drop is unique, and also very different from doing a split.


    Don't worry, though, Miley had a super quick reply. "That's what I think when I'm watching your shows too," she said. "All the same stuff."

    Miley clapping back "That's what I think when I'm watching your shows too."

    YESSS, MILEY! You tell him.


    People loved the clapback.

    Joe Rogan was NOT ready for that 😭

    any drag queen i know could run joe rogan's podcast but joe rogan could not death drop.

    Joe Rogan /

    I can't even express the positive effect of watching Miley Cyrus take 0% of Joe Rogan's shit insulting drag performers and then sending him to the fucking shadow realm.

    For real, though, I'm glad Miley clapped back. Don't come for drag queens or you will be read! Bye.
