As this year's most divisive pop star, Miley Cyrus won a slew of ardent supporters—Jay Z, Sufjan Stevens, Ariana GrandeCeline Dion—along with heavy-handed critics like Big FreediaSinead O'Connor, Iggy Azalea and parents everywhere. But now we can add everyone's favorite twin-sister pop duo Tegan and Sara as a big proponents of the Bangerz singer.

In an interview with NME, Sara Quin likens Cyrus to one of the biggest stars the world has ever seen. 

"She's this generation's Madonna," she explained. "A hugely talented pop star with agency over her body and sexuality, which terrifies people." 

Quin adds that Miley's affinity to genre-hopping further likens the comparison. "She's constantly switching up between sounds. Bangerz is part electro, part country, part rap, all incredible. The controversy around her shouldn't distract from her being a quintessential pop star."
