Los Angeles - Miley Cyrus thinks Beyoncé's pop career has peaked.
The Wrecking Ball singer has claimed the star is out of touch with modern music and believes she can take her place at the top of the music ladder.
Speaking in the new issue of Love magazine, Miley said: "Beyoncé has been a big inspiration to me but she's been out for such a long time. She's so talented and I think she's at the top of the game now but people are always looking for new blood and that's what I bring to the game now, new blood, I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I'm just the best."
Miley, 21, is determined to knock queen of pop Beyoncé, 32, off her throne and believes her rival's focus is now on raising her daughter Blue Ivy - who turns two next week - with her husband Jay Z.
Miley said: "As Beyoncé grows in motherhood and all the crap it does to your body, it will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now. I'm the only white female singer that could fill that slot right now and do it right."
Miley described herself as the "total package" and believes she will have a career that eclipses her fellow music "icons".
The former Hannah Montana star said: "I just feel like I was born for this time right now. I'm just the total package, you know? All things must start and end and I hope to have the same success as other icons in the game when my run is over. But for now, my run is just starting."
Miley's comments come after Beyoncé's self-titled fifth solo album was released on iTunes with no warning earlier this month and sold an astonishing 828 773 digital copies in just three days and was acclaimed by critics across the world.
