Miley Cyrus fans are stunned as Instagram user reveals uncanny similarity ... trends now

Miley Cyrus fans were left stunned on Wednesday after her Grammy winning single Flowers was pulled apart for its lyrical and compositional similarity to previously released tracks by other artists. 

The American singer received mainstream music's highest accolade in February after the song was named Record of The Year and Cyrus Best Pop Solo Performance at the 66th annual Grammy Awards.

Jermaine's comparisons also extent to Cyrus, whose thick Tennessee drawl is uncannily matched with the robotic twang of a Battle Droid in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. 

Commenting on the post, one follower wrote: 'So do these other artists get partial writing credit for her grammy??' 

While a second theorised: 'It basically sampled that song because Mileys song is especially a diss track to her ex
