Miley Cyrus performed at James Franco’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday night. Yes, you read that correctly. Franco held an event for Hilarity for Charity (to fight Alzheimer’s), and he decided a Bar Mitzvah theme was hilarious. He was raised in a secular environment but does have a Jewish mother, so I guess this works. I couldn’t tell you what possesses Franco to be so “meta” about everything. Half the time (at least) he comes off as stoned, but he’s always maintained that he does not do drugs. Miley is always smoking weed and wants everyone to know it. Perhaps too much weed inspired her performance outfit.
Miley donned a blue thing bodysuit. You can see the back view here. At least she wore tights underneath so she wasn’t completely nude at a Bar Mitzvah, but the “thong” effect is still there. She also wore Star of David cuffs, her ever present faux-dreadlocks, and all sorts of sparkly embellishments. Her thigh-high boots are Versace, and her cape read, “Shalom, ya’ll.’ This is a typically outlandish outfit from Miley. She’s grating, and she very badly wants attention. Eventually, she will run of out of scandalous things to do, but I could be wrong. Miley may one day be the one person in a retirement home who’s popping wheelies while pulling up her skirt. (Assuming she’d end up in a retirement home – most rich people don’t go there.)
Miley posted a series of photos to Instagram. She captioned herself as “Miley Cyrustein” with her band, “the Jewper HerozZZ.” I’m fairly certain few people were offended by Miley trying to appropriate yet another culture. She’s trying to get a rise out of someone, but this time, she’s acting too dumb to be offensive. Right?
