“I think there’s a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively. I think you can be as creative as you want to be and as inventive as you want to be…you can roll out old ideas and old thoughts and give them a new coat of paint. But the idea of whipping out the girls, I don’t know, there’s a grossness to it that I think is not flattering…to the women themselves.”
Legendary diva Bette Midler is not someone we would have expected to weigh in on Mileygate. But when asked by Katie Couric about her thoughts on the sexualization of young female performers, she killed it. I really like the line about pushing the envelope “creatively” versus “sexually” and how they are not the same thing. I know Miley Cyrus has Dolly Parton, another legendary diva, as her godmother but Auntie Bette sounds pretty smart, too. [Perez Hilton] [Images via Getty]
Whatta miracle! Miley Cyrus managed to prove that it’s possible to dress up as a famous person of another race for Halloween — without resorting to blackface. Now we know why Miley was rocking that purple wig the other day — it’s part of her Lil’ Kim Halloween costume. Cyrus posted photos of herself dressed up as Kim in her infamous purple jumpsuit from the 1999 VMAs — which of course gave her the chance to bare one tit. The only thing that bothers me about this costume is knowing that Miley probably thinks of herself as, like, being as bad ass, rebellious and boundary-pushing as Kim, like they’re kindred spirits or something, when she’s not even close. Still, Kim was impressed — she tweeted her approval. [Concrete Loop; NY Daily News]
Lest you think Miley Cyrus is considering a reversion to her vanilla “Hannah Montana” days, she juxtaposed these wigged out Twitter photos with a shot of her “xxxxxxplicit pornkinzzz” … Keep reading »
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]
