Despite reports, there’s lots of love to go around among Love magazine, Beyonce and Miley Cyrus.

Several online outlets said Cyrus slammed Jay Z's wife in an interview with the U.K. publication, quoting Cyrus as saying Beyonce had been "out of the game" for too long because of the birth of her daughter,  Blue Ivy.

"I'm the only white female singer that could fill that slot right now and do it right, you know...Beyonce has been a big inspiration to me but she’s been out for such a long time.
