I try not to promote violence, although I used to be a fan of “So-and-so needs a good slap” hyperbole. But I’m a pretty peaceful person. I get the feeling that Tim Gunn is a pretty peaceful person too. He seems like the kind of man who prides himself on having an even temper, a man who a low tolerance for melodrama and neurosis and acts of violence. But Tim Gunn is at his wit’s end with one particular person. In Touch Weekly spoke to Tim and they asked him what he thought of Miley Cyrus. His answer was surprisingly tinged with violence!
Self-proclaimed “semi-nudist” Miley Cyrus has been making head turns lately with some of her style choices and clothes — or lack thereof — lately. One person who is decidedly not a fan of her new look? Tim Gunn!
In Touch caught up with the 60-year-old fashion icon at the Nespresso Pop-up Shop, where he revealed that he’s been “horrified” by the 20-year-old’s recent fashion choices lately.
So what advice would Tim — who has lent his keen fashion eye to countless aspiring fashion designers on Project Runway — say to Miley? Nothing, apparently!
“I don’t think I would say anything to her,” he told In Touch. “I think I would haul off and give her a great big bitch slap. She needs to be shocked into listening.”
Miley knows a thing or two about shock value; last month, the pop singer told Fashion magazine that she knows her very particular taste may scare people, but that it’s “better to be stylish than trendy.”
She added that her musical mentor and style guru Pharrell said that it’s not what she’s wearing, but how she wears it — a lesson she said she took to heart.
“I think it is important that I execute a look better than other people,” she told the mag. “Fashion is what separates me from everyone else.”
Unfortunately for Miley, Tim revealed that her attitude isn’t much better than her style choices — he told In Touch that the two were on-set together for Sex and the City 2 and called her behavior “torturous.”
I would pay money to see Tim Gunn bitch-slap Miley. Or would I? I do think Tim is just talking about what “someone” should do to Miley, I doubt Tim would ever slap her. He would yell at her though. He would look at her, slowly taking in the tongue, the Terry Richardson photos, the high-waisted booty shorts that only emphasize the fact that Miley has no booty… and Tim would just shake his head and whisper, “Honey, no. NO.”
