Miley Cyrus Gets Downright Filthy While Strutting To 2013 VMAs

Cyrus’ road to the MTV Video Music Awards is a little dirtier than most, but she’s doing it all for the Smilers.

What’s the grittiest way to get to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards? Pink got pretty bad-ass last year by flying in on a helicopter, but that’s not Miley Cyrus’s style. Miley’s crawling through the tunnels of Brooklyn with her Smiler gang, baring her teeth and slinking confidently through the darkness.

In the latest VMA promo, Cyrus emerges with fire-breathers and graffiti artists at the Barclays Center stop at Atlantic Avenue. Commuters stand on the platform with a wary gaze (maybe they’re pissed that Miley’s holding up the N train). A busker strums “We Can’t Stop” quietly on a ukulele, while the Smilers blast the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn.”

As a VMA nominee for Best Pop Video, Best Female Video and Best Editing, she doesn’t take her upcoming appearance at August 25’s show lightly. And her crew that’s following her underground in the subway? She’s doing it all for them.

“I’m so thankful to my fans,” Cyrus told MTV News on set of the promo. “I’m obviously making the music and I come out here and like, ‘work,’ but it’s really all on the fans. They’re all about buying the record and who’s out there making the video so viral and get to 100 million. So, really, I want to continue to shine the light on them a little bit. That’s why it’s important to show this army of Smilers.”

So what will the Smilers do if Miley actually wins?

“Winning, they get as excited as I do, I really think,” she said. ” ‘Cause they’re the ones who are making it happen, voting every day. So every day I just go to my Twitter feed and I see ‘I just voted for Best Pop Video,’ ’cause I see all my followers who have been voting, it’s obviously so cool. That’s why I wanted to represent them in this whole video and show kinda how they’re a part of my crew.”

Next stop on the road to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards? Televised promo spots! And just to prove we’re really not messing around, we’re kicking them off with none other than grill-wearing, unicorn twerking Miley Cyrus. Miles is responsible for one of THE most buzzed about music videos of the year—”We Can’t Stop”—so it’s only right we rep the Best Pop Video nominee appropriately (and heavily). Miley’s promo spot, if you didn’t catch it air last night, features Billy Ray’s little girl popping into a party in the subway tunnels below Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, stepping in via an overhead manhole ladder (also, killer white Versace pumps). We caught up with Miley’s long-time stylist, Simone Harouche, on the shoot to pick her brain about her underground BK party outfit-of-choice for the promo.

The vibe of the spot is very similar to her own music video—slow mo party shots, youth personified, etc.—and accordingly, Harouche styled Miles in a way that’s deliberately akin to the “We Can’t Stop” music video. Simone told us that she and Miley both wanted to keep the look of the promo youthful, edgy and sexy. Cyrus also had input on the overall look and wanted to infuse a little sportiness—we see you with the mesh paneled Minimale Animale crop top, girl. The same fash-athleticism can be felt in the black high-waisted American Apparel shorts with side scallops. It’s the accessorizing that takes the look to the next level.

To keep the monochromatic look from coming off too austere, Harouche and Miley layer short chain necklaces—a single strand chain that hits at the center of the sternum, a nameplate reading “Doll,” a rhinestone-laden Chanel necklace that’s this close to being a choker, and of course, her gold “M” necklace. Her very louche ’80s-esque chain belt is also Chanel, naturally, AND it looks like she decided to bust out her “Chic Grill” for our shoot! The final product is amazeballs, classic new-era Miley steez at its finest, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about how the spot turned out. We do feel it’s important to note that after the shoot, she immediately switched into black high top Chucks. Atta, girl!

Miley Cyrus Gets Third Tattoo From Kat Von D

Miley Cyrus just can’t stop getting inked! The 20-year-old singer revealed via Twitter on Sunday, Aug. 4, that she got yet another tattoo done by Kat Von D.

“Tattoo-time,” the 31-year-old tattoo artist and reality star simply wrote on Instagram. The “We Can’t Stop” singer later retweeted the comment, keeping tight-lipped on what the latest design actually is, or even the location where she had it done on her body. 

This isn’t the first time the former Disney Channel star has gone to Von D for a new tattoo. The “Party In The U.S.A.” singer got two crossed arrows on her right elbow in January 2013. “Loved tattooing @MileyCyrus yestrday! Simple symbols of friendship make beautiful tattoos. <3,” Von D wrote via Twitter at the time. Two months later, Cyrus got a miniature rendition of a da Vinci anatomical heart on her forearm in March.

Cyrus’ latest tat is just one of many added to her collection. The LOL actress also has a peace sign, a quote from a 1910 speech from President Theodore Roosevelt, roman numerals, the word “love” and a dream catcher.

Miley Cyrus: People Have This “Misconception of Me” as a “Ratchet White Girl”

6 08 2013

Miley Cyrus has done a good job of distancing herself from her days on Disney’s Hannah Montana — maybe too good a job, in fact. Speaking about her edgy new image in an interview with Notion magazine, the 20-year-old singer says she gets a bad rap as a “ratchet white girl” and insists there’s more to her than meets the eye.

“People have this misconception of me that I’m just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I’m just this ratchet white girl, and I’m not,” she laments. “I work really, really hard, I’m just in a different environment.”

Cyrus — who has made headlines in recent months for her provocative outfits, love of twerking, and sexed-up music videos — notes that she’s just trying to figure out who she is in the context of her fame. “I’m young and living and in L.A., which is everyone’s dream, you know,” she explains. “I’m living it to the fullest.”

“Rather than taking a blessing and making it a curse, it’s just like this is what this name is now,” she continues. “But I think my name means something — it represents something more than just what the media tries to make of it.”

She doesn’t specify exactly what that something is, but it’s big. “I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley, but there’s something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name,” she tells Notion.

That said, she doesn’t want to be boxed in by what her name has represented in the past. “I think people forget what it feels like to be 20,” she said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. “People just evolve and that’s all that’s happened to me. But people think a mad scientist somehow cooked up this potion and turned me into a different human, which it wasn’t. All I did was get a haircut and buy some clothes, and everyone thinks that I am made into a robot that changes with what’s popular every 10 years.”

“I think some people kind of fall off and they end up going crazy because you don’t give yourself time to go crazy,” said the star, who appears to be back on with fiance Liam Hemsworth. “That’s what you’re supposed to do; you are 20, you are supposed to be a mess because you haven’t figured it out yet, and 10 years from now I am supposed to have it all together.”


  • Miley Cyrus Defends Justin Bieber: He ‘Can Do Anything He Wants’

The pop star is going through her own transition

Miley Cyrus has defended pop’s bad boy, Justin Bieber insisting he can do “anything he wants”.

Justin has been seemingly persistent in getting into the bad books of the public, and most recently his latest outing in a New York nightclub ended in a bloody brawl.

However fellow pop star, Miley Cyrus, who has also made headlines for alleged wild antics, appears to hold a special place in her heart for the troubled teen.

“Justin started as a baby, he had a lot of success early and he’s trying to adjust,” says the former ‘Hannah Montana’ star whose empathy for the 19-year-old pop star comes as she tries to shed her own squeaky clean Disney image.

The 20-year-old singer continued: “If I was Justin Bieber I’d be walking around with my top off too. He’s looking good, he’s 19, he can have any girl he wants and can do pretty much anything he wants.”

“I think it’s important not to abuse it but everyone does dumb stuff when they get messed up.” she insisted.

Meanwhile R&B singer Ciara also stuck up for the Justin’s erratic behaviour by arguing he was suffering from a bout of “growing pains”.

She commented: “Any young boy blessed with extreme success and wealth who didn’t have that before has to adjust. Maybe it’s just growing pains.”

Justin’s crew face investigation from cops following an argument which ended in a victim being sent to hospital, after a girl tried to hit on the ‘Beauty and the Beat’ singer in his v.i.p area.

The star allegedly ripped his shirt off and “went nuts” following the incident, befor his security quickly intervened in an attempt to calm the star down.

A spokesman for Bieber later confirmed to MailOnline: ‘Justin was not involved in any altercation.’
