Poor Miley Cyrus. She may have been named MTV’s top artist of 2013, but they practically had to give her the title after the VMA twerk heard ’round the world. MTV titles essentially mean nothing (look at how many awards they gave the Twilight movies), and now Miley has been passed over as AP’s entertainer of the year (in favor of Jennifer Lawrence). Plus she lost out on the race for Time’s person of the year after she campaigned so bloody hard for the honor. Oh well.
Miley’s still attempting to shake things up. As you can see in the above photo, she’s wearing a humongous fur coat at last weekend’s Jingle Ball concert in Sunrise, Florida. It looks like real fur, doesn’t it? Yes, I know I’m supposed to talk about how fur coats are made from animals that are tortured. But … I’m just glad Miley’s covering up for a change. Some people on Twitter were pretty outraged at Miley’s attire:
She is known for her controversial stage appearances. But Miley Cyrus appears to have caused public outrage yet again when she performed on stage in a what appears to be a real fur coat.
Outraged Twitter user, @NatashaSchell wrote: Miley Cyrus shame on you for wearing fur you don’t now what animals go through for that coat might as well wear dogs.
Another, who goes by the name of @littleskye123 wrote: Miley Cyrus wears real fur! She may as well just go back to being half naked.
@ChelseaCrouton added: Only thing more repulsive than @MileyCyrus is Miley Cyrus in fur. Her poor dogs, bet she’ll skin them next to make a pair of booty shorts.

Is it offensive that I don’t find Miley’s fur coat to be offensive? I’m vegetarian, but I’m not going to start reciting PETA talking points to Miley. Without that coat, her notorious front wedgie would be on display for all to admire (or not). Those tweeters really didn’t need to bring Miley’s dogs into the discussion either. Sigh.
In slightly more (or less?) controversial news, Miley’s new video for her “Adore You” song will come out soon. You can see a slightly NSFW teaser clip here. She’s basically topless and feeling herself up. What a rebel.
