Meat Loaf Reveals Why He's Miley Cyrus And Bruno Mars' Biggest Fan

Miley Cyrus may have her detractors - mostly of her attitude and lack of clothing, rather than anything musical - but it turns out she has one big fan, in Meat Loaf.

The veteran rocker was having a chat with BUILD London on Friday, when he was asked which present-day artists he thinks most admires. 

He was quick to nominate ‘Uptown Funk’ star Bruno Mars, and explain why, but his second choice was perhaps more surprising. 

Out of all the current superstars such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, he went for Miley. Hear his explanation above...

Meat Loaf describes why he's such a big fan of Miley Cyrus

Meat Loaf was in London to support the launch of the musical ‘Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell: The Musical’, which he said was a dream come true after a 50-year collaboration with Jim Steinman, the producer who channelled Meat Loaf’s distinct talents to unique effect on the ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ albums and hits including ‘Dead Ringer For Love’, ‘Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad’ and ‘Paradise By The Dashboard Light’.

During the same chat, Meat Loaf revealed that, despite what the press would have us think and despite lawsuits between the two, he had only fallen out with Jim once in 50 years - although on that occasion, he did turn over the piano, much to the producer’s surprise.
