Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation. As we predicted (and just about everyone else on the planet did) Miley’s VMA performance would spark one of the hottest costumes this year. Perhaps more so than Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” look or Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” unitard fierceness. Hugh Hefner and, wife, Crystal Harris suited up as Robin Thicke and Miley, which is a testament of the twerker’s cultural reach. Seriously, Hugh Hefner is like 90,000,000 years old, I can’t imagine that guy listening to Bangerz.
What’s best about celebrities dressed as other celebrities is that it makes them seem sort of normal. It shows how much the media’s image of one celeb appears the same to another celebrity. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Brangelina” (in the gallery at the link) is spot on but also shows how much Brangelina is defined by how many children they’ve adopted together and all the paparazzi photos we see of the family traveling as a pack.

“[A] lot of people see me as a role model, but I’d like to kind of turn that around and say I appreciate that but I’d like to be seen as an inspiration. Because a role model, I think, will fail you. I mean, I couldn’t tell kids when it’s time for them to try things or do things. I mean, that’s not my role. But, you know, it’s funny. I do see myself becoming this, whatever, inspiration out of default right now, ’cause it’s such a strange world. Like females in pop — everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before, but I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed. But it’s interesting to see … I’m not talking about anyone in particular. I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s, like, everybody’s so naked. It’s, like, put it away. We know you’ve got it. I got it too. I’ve taken it off for — I’ve taken it out here and there. And I’m not necessarily judging. I’m just saying sometimes it’s nice to play that card, but also it’s nice to play other cards. And I know I have that sexy card in my deck, but I don’t always have to use that card.”
It’s so hard to know what to make of this interview that Katy Perry did with NPR.
Here’s my conflict, after the jump: Keep reading »
I have become accustomed to just not knowing what Miley Cyrus is going to wear, besides the fact that it will always surely be scandalous and bordering on naked. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that her outfit choice for last night’s 30th Annual Night Of Stars event was a shimmering sea green-ish gown, which she pair with simple hair and makeup. Maybe Miley’s pasties wanted the night off? Whatever the case, I think she looks pretty and I love that her eye makeup compliments the color of her gown. [Photos: Getty Images]
What would Halloween be without scary campfire stories? It’s the best time of year to get bundled up, binge on s’mores, and try to scare the shit out of your friends with creepy tales of ghosts, demons, serial killers, monsters, and ax murderers. We thought it was time to give these classic tales a pop culture twist, because really, what’s scarier than Hollywood? Here’s how it works: use whatever standard scary story intro you want (dark and stormy night, friends doing a séance, creepy cabin sleepover, haunted bathroom mirror, etc), and then sub in one of these celebrity-inspired punchlines for the big, gasp-worthy finish: Keep reading »
Since the world has reached a dangerous Miley Cyrus oversaturation point, we’ve vowed to limit our Miley coverage to stories involving strange, endearing Celine Dion quotes or cute animals reenacting her sexy music videos. With that in mind, here’s a pug dressed up as the wrecking ball from the “Wrecking Ball” video. Enjoy. [Neatorama]
I really was planning on putting the kibosh on Miley Cyrus-related posts for awhile, but I hope you’ll forgive me for making an exception so soon. Because this “Wrecking Ball” parody, featuring an obese hedgehog named Regina, is too flawless not to be shared. [YouTube]
“Our whole movement is about girl power, so if you’re Black, White or Asian, you can twerk. But Miley Cyrus twerking is not our twerking. She’s just a fan who is showing it to a whole different ethnic group, you have to give her her props for that.”
Lady Luscious and Mizz TwerkSum of the original Twerk Team issue what is hopefully the final nail in the coffin of the “Can Miley twerk?” debate, pointing out that twerking is an act of empowerment. If you’re not familiar with the Twerk Team, head over to their YouTube page to check ‘em out. These ladies can move. [Life And Times]
But don’t worry! It’s not because he’s worried about her prostituting herself, or that she’s using Black women and little people as props in her act, or that she’s not practicing proper tongue hygiene. No, the singer-songwriter is concerned about Miley’s grammar:
I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: ‘I been laying in this bed all night long.’ Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. ‘I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.’ Keep reading »
