Miley Cyrus was mistaken for a 40-year-old by a saleswoman


Whenever I hear Miley Cyrus talk, I get mad. I mean really, really mad. How in the world can a 16-year-old have such a grating smoker’s voice? And she’s a singer! She sounds like she’s been smoking Old Gold unfiltereds for the last thirty years. Or chewing bark just for the hell of it. So it’s really no surprise to hear that she was recently mistaken for a 40-year-old. Frankly I consider that rather charitable when the voice is combined with that gummy smile of hers.

TEENAGER MILEY CYRUS got the hump after she was mistaken for a married middle-aged MUM.

The 16-year-old Disney star was mortified when a sales assistant mistook her for the 40-year-old mother of her eight-year-old half sister NOAH [sic - Noah is Miley's full sister].

Miley said: “I had this lady walk up to me and try to sell me wrinkle cream.

“I wasn’t offended until she started to say that I looked good for my age.

“She thought I was 40. I was with a bodyguard who she thought was my husband, and my little sister-who she thought was my daughter!

“She called out ’Oh you look just like your mummy.’

“I had to set her straight. ’Ok lady, that is NOT my husband, that is NOT my child and I am NOT 40, I’m 16.’

“Needless to say she was embarrassed.”

[From The Sun]

I don’t think the saleswoman should have been embarrassed – Miley should be. Fix your voice already! There’s got to be some kind of surgery. In five years she’s going to sound like Rita Cosby. Seriously, I can’t blame the saleswoman. I’m assuming this happened in L.A. And if so, considering all the cosmetic surgery flying around that town, it’s safe to assume someone might expect a fairly youthful appearance from a 40-year-old in that area. Combined with the voice… well who the hell could blame the poor woman?

When I hear Miley talk I always want to ask her, “Did you ever think about just going, ‘Ahem?’ You know, try clearing your throat or something?”*

*(Yes that’s a stolen joke from Mitch Hedberg).

    Could singing on the top of one’s lungs, without technique, be the cause of such a hoarse voice ?

    She has no voice left by now. And she’s so young, I doubt it can be from smoking alone.

  2. boomchakaboom says:

    Too funny…Miley, it’s not the saleslady’s fault, you know. That episode should tell you SOMETHING.

  3. audrey says:

    haaaa! i thought that last pic was her DAD .. he looks just like him…that is so f*ed up!

  4. what is ever. says:

    I love Mitch Hedberg, may he rest in peace.

  5. CB Rawks says:

    It means it got her back up. Annoyed. Kind of clear when you think about it.

  6. nanster says:

    I don’t know why I know this, but Noah isn’t Miley’s half sister – they have the same parents.

    This is really funny if it happened, but I have my doubts…

  7. Ophelia says:

    I thought Noah was a boy’s name…?

  8. Livia says:

    Except, she WASN’T mistaken for a 40-year old – she was mistaken for being a mother. The saleswoman didn’t bring up the age “forty” – Miley did. And FWIW, clerks in beauty departments will try to sell anything to anyone – they work on commission. Also: I can’t think of a single high-end product that uses the word “wrinkle” in its name. “Restorative”? Yes. “Age-Defying”? Yes. “Wrinkle”? NO. Way to exaggerate the truth just enough to get back in the gossip columns, little girl.

  9. Wonder Woman says:

    Yup sure is 16 bc that is defenetly something not to brag about

  10. TaylorB says:

    She should count her blessings, I would have pegged her as a tranny.

    No hating on Miley here, or trannies for that matter, she just kinda dresses and sounds like one.

  11. neelyo says:

    I would have pegged her as ‘special’. That girl is just not attractive.

  12. Payton says:

    Miley is growing up too fast, and I can’t imagine what she will look like when she’s 20. Sometimes, she looks haggard & burnt out. This story is lame.

  13. Wonder Woman says:

    Scary thing is her bf is looking more like her dad every passing day…

  14. SolitaryAngel says:


    Girl sounds like she’s been gargling Lysol (and I’m being gracious here)all her life. Sissoukat is right, though.

  15. mama9 says:

    if shes dressed like an adult (tramp) and wants people to treat her as older I don’t see the problem. she looks like she forgot her pants in the car and is carrying a pumpkin in these pictures. Her boyfriend is older (20?) and I think he does look like daddy. twisted

  16. Cath says:

    I’m not a fan of Miley, but you might want to tone it down. She’s a child. To pick on her for her “gummy smile” and her deep voice (things she can’t really help) just seems mean. Not bitchy: petty and plain mean.

  17. lara says:

    Livia, my thoughts exactly. What a little twit.

  18. YIKES for the Daddy look-a-like says:

    OMFG!! does her BF not look an awful lot like her dad?? Gross!

  19. the original kate says:

    i’ll bet salepseople the world over mistake lindsay lohan for a 60 year old.

  20. mar says:

    she is using so much make up in this pics, and it is a different color than her ataul skin, just look at her neck. no wonder she was getting offerend restorative products

  21. alecto says:

    He has an 11 month old daughter that lives with her grandparents. What a great example.

  22. K-Ci says:

    Radiohead probably put that old lady up to it. They heard Miley telling everyone that she’s going to destroy them.

  23. orion70 says:

    why is she wearing doilies ?

    also, that guy behind her has got THE whitest sneakers i’ve ever seen.

  24. EnKay says:

    With the seemingly endless annoying characteristics of Miley Cyrus that are within her control, how is it that you obsessively focus on her voice? This is ridiculous.
