British singer Marianne Faithfull most likely won't be on the Christmas lists of Miley Cyrus or Rihanna anytime soon after bashing both pop stars in a recent television interview.

The Independent reports Faithfull -- in an interview promoting her upcoming album Give My Love To London -- slammed both artists for their public image.

"I think they are completely rubbishy sluts actually," Faithfull told ITV when asked about young pop stars "like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna and the way they dress."

"I've no idea what they think. I cannot understand that way of thinking. That they want to be so much in the music business that they're prepared to make complete fools of themselves. I'm amazed."

Faithfull, who hours earlier released the Nick Cave-written song "Late Victorian Holocaust," also spoke recently regarding the death of The Doors singer Jim Morrison and how she recently accused former boyfriend Jean de Breteuil of accidentally killing him.

"I could intuitively feel trouble," the singer told British music publication Mojo in August. "I thought, 'I'll take a few Tuinal [barbiturates] and I won't be there.' And he went to see Jim Morrison and killed him. I mean I'm sure it was an accident. Poor bastard. The smack was too strong? Yeah. And he died. And I didn't know anything about this. Anyway, everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me."

Miley Cyrus has not commented in response to Faithfull's statements nor has Rihanna.

Faithfull will be touring behind her new album starting in Germany on Oct. 11. According to her official site, an initial run of European dates concludes in France on Dec. 20 before a shorter span of dates in France commences in February.
