Miley Cyrus’ skimpy outfits at the iHeartRadio festival: fun or trashy?

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus kept herself hidden most of last week after her breakup from Liam Hemsworth. In contrast, he stepped out right away with a new lady before flying out of LAX midweek. Now he’s on the Mockingjay set where he’ll have to memorize more than two lines for the last two Hunger Games movies.

Miley made her first post-breakup appearance at the iHeartRadio festival on Saturday. She wore all while again because she’s “ on a whole other level of sh-t” than we are with fashion. She also cried at the end of “Wrecking Ball” (you can see that video here). Some outlets are calling it a “breakdown.” The speculation is that Miley was weeping about Liam. Maybe she was, but the song isn’t about Liam because Miley didn’t even write it. I think Miley’s a better actress than anyone gives her credit for being. Maybe she figured everyone else was thinking about Liam. Hence the tears. I hope she’s not really crying about him.

During her four-song set, Miley danced with little people, mushrooms, and flowers. She said her videos are “getting me in trouble,” but “it’s just me doing what my heart and soul is telling me to do. Everything is inspired by the music.” Here her heart and soul told her to give herself a massive front wedgie. Miley later changed into an even more risqué second outfit. I’ve included those photos at the bottom of this post.

Several new stories are popping up about Liam’s new “girlfriend,” Eiza Gonzales. They only met about a week ago in Vegas, and he left LA on Wednesday for work. That hasn’t stopped Eiza from telling friends “they are in love.” A source in Miley’s camp says she’s insulted at the Liam-Eiza PDA because Liam was always on “this soapbox about keeping things private, now he’s breaking his own rules.” There’s an undercurrent of outlets digging into Eiza’s sketchy past. Many sites are also pointing out her (radical?) plastic surgery. Over the weekend, a reporter asked Eiza about Liam, and she left the room during a press conference. Eiza then locked her Twitter account. Huh.

Speaking of jumpoffs, some unfounded rumors are circling about Miley and her producer, Mike WiLL Made it. The Mail thinks that Miley has “confirmed” a relationship with Mike (or is it WiLL?) because she hugged him after her iHR performance. They also posed together months ago at Terry Richardson’s house of horrors. I don’t see it, but I could be wrong. Miley also hugged Justin Timberlake at the festival. I guess they’re doing it too. Someone tell Jessica Biel.

Miley’s second outfit of the evening was a disaster. She basically wore a black-and-white thong and black pasties covered in a mesh dress with furry arms. Look at Miley, everyone! That’s all she wants in life.

    That second outfit actually makes the first one look modest, wow.

    • BW says:

      Walt Disney must be rolling over in his grave. Remember how Annette Funicello wouldn’t even wear a bikini in the beach movies she starred in because she didn’t think Disney would approve of her showing her navel? Now compare Annette to the last crop of Mouseketeers.

      • BreeinSEA says:

        Funny I was thinking the same thing. Also, does she have severe eczema or what? I do but I control mine w creams.. .. you’d think she knew we could see it?

  2. lulu says:

    Lol. Shes going to look back and regret

    • Sherry says:

      I’m not sure she is. She’s after the publicity and attention and she’s getting it. One of the sites said Miley commented that “Gaga and Madonna did the same thing.” I think she’s doing an Anthony Robbins modelling behavior thing and trying to copy their playbook. Look how many times Madonna has reinvented herself to stay relevant.

      I’m not a Miley fan, but I am starting to wonder if in the next year or so, we see an entirely different version of her and we’ll all be talking about the “new Miley” again.

      She’s either going down the Amanda Byne’s road to psychiatric lockup, or she’s a very shrewd marketer who is determined to stay relevant past her Disney fame and is taking steps to insure her longevity.

      Only time will tell which one it is.

      • Eleonor says:

        A little difference: Madonna has been putting on amazing shows for 30 years, Miley twerks nearly dressed on little people.

      • Adrien says:

        Madonna had good, catchy tunes to back up her stunts. Her shows were quality. She had a turbulent marriage to Sean Penn which made her a constant media target. She also reinvented herself every year in time for the next album not every other day.

      • puff says:

        I’m going with the marketing genius. There’s really no evidence of this girl being anything but very together.

      • hunter says:

        My money’s on shrewd marketing, Miley knows exactly what she’s doing.

        Regardless of what she’s doing on stage, you DON’T hear awful stories a la Justin Bieber or druggie scares per Rhianna. She knows exactly what’s up and I bet she keeps her sh’t controlled.

    • Samtha says:

      I doubt she’ll ever have that kind of self-awareness.

  3. rosemary says:

    Trashy with a capital TRASH im tired of people saying oh let her love she’s going, well im 18 I’m younger than Miley and i sure as Hell dont dress like that…..

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      That’s fine that you don’t dress like Miley. Everyone has their own style, and another individual’s clothing CHOICES never hurt anyone. :)

      • skyler10 says:

        Only people desperate and panting for attention, i.e. LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME I’M SO OUTRAGEOUS I’M SO SEXUAL I’M SO COOL dress like Miley. Actually Rihanna can carry a look like that without looking desperate.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        That’s your opinion, and it’s what our culture has always taught: that if a woman wears a revealing outfit, she’s desperate for approval. Now, Miley does like attention, but that’s not to say that EVERY woman in a revealing outfit or who dresses up in a sexy costume is desperate. Fashion is fun to play with, and if a person or pop star likes an outfit or costume, they should be free to wear it.

      • skyler10 says:

        Well I agree people have the right to express themselves any way they want but be prepared for the negative attention and backlash they might get out of it…if your boobs and cooch are hanging out, unfortunately you will likely be thought a sleaze, even if you aren’t. Truly secure people don’t have to advertise their sexuality.

      • TherapyCranes says:

        @skylar101 “Truly secure people don’t have to advertise their sexuality.”

        They don’t have to but maybe they want to. You can be confident and secure and still find it thrilling or empowering to show off your sexuality and body. To think you have to act like a conservative nun all the time because you’re ‘secure’ is asinine. Just because someone chooses to express their sexuality in a more open way does not equate to having lowered self esteem. Get off your high horse.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Skyler10: “you will likely be thought a sleaze, even if you aren’t. Truly secure people don’t have to advertise their sexuality.”

        Darling, a Truly Secure Person doesn’t feel so threatened or encroached upon by other women’s clothing choices that it moves them to slut-shaming. In fact, a Truly Secure Person chooses to abstain from society’s prudish slut-shaming game entirely, because they’re aware of all the problems it has caused. :D

      • Brickyard Ute says:

        Lelia? Are you Blaize with a new screen name? Add another to the Cyrus pay roll!!

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        ??? :D

      • Skyler10 says:

        Hey, if you’re self worth depends on showing off your body and being lusted after, more power to you. No insecurity here. Me personally, I don’t have to. All I’m saying is be prepared for people to think you are loose if you dress that way. That’s just the way it is, fair or not. And please don’t call me darling, just because I don’t agree with you doesn’t mean you have to be patronizing.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Skyler 10: No, my self-worth isn’t based on clothing, and I’m sure that self-worth isn’t determined by clothing for most people.

        If someone still, in the 21st century, think that revealing clothing= ‘loose woman”, as you put it, then that just goes to show how old-fashioned, prudish, sexist, and ignorant THEY are. Of course people can be helped to overcome those problems, just like people can be helped to overcome homophobia or other forms of bigotry. But that’s only if they want to change.

    • skyler10 says:

      What it really boils down to, is how one carries themselves. I’ve sunbathed topless in Europe and was around very unclothed people yet nobody was carrying themselves in a manner like Miley, waving their crotches and bending over with their tongues hanging out. That is what I meant by the LOOK AT ME PLEASE comment. Rihanna wears revealing outfits yet, imho, looks edgy and high fashion. Gwen Stefani is my personal style guru.Look in any fashion magazine and there are many gorgeous layouts that are sexy but without the trash factor. Miley hopefully will find that balance. Right now, her style is god-awful, and I mean in demeanor as well as clothes. Camel toe is never pretty.

  4. LAK says:

    Hahaha rather enjoying the censorship. What must Miley do so that we can pay attention!!!

    Answers on a postcard to Miley Towers.

    • lori says:

      I’m loving the censorship maxi pads on all these pictures……LOL

    • Reece says:

      I was just about to wonder out loud that top and side boob are ok but under boob has to be censored…interesting dissection of a breast.

      Might I request that we start censoring her tongue in those pics? I’m finding it increasingly difficult to hold down my morning toast, even with the thumbnails on the main page.

  5. Zoid says:

    Is that Eiza girl going the fame whore route to use him for press or do they legitimately like each other? Anyone who says they’re in love after a week is an idiot, IMO.

    • Smoochy says:

      I totally think they’re in love. Budget’s ego loves the attention he’s getting for having a “hot chick” on his…ahem…arm & Eiza is loving the publicity boost / becoming the new “it” girl. It’s a match made in Hollywood Heaven.
      And don’t forget that Budget basically wants to be Chris 2.0! Eiza = Elsa 2.0.

    • lylaooo says:

      that´s not her official twitter account…and she didn’t want to talk to the press about Liam for respect to her co-workers (that´s what she said). im mexican and yes shes kinda big in here, i personally haven´t been interest on her work…since i don´t watch telenovelas (i think they are lame)

  6. Ncboudicca says:

    That second outfit is so ugly even Gaga wouldn’t wear it.

  7. starrywonder says:

    Wow she and Courtney Stodden can totally exchange clothes now…

    • emmie_a says:

      Absolutely. I’m just amazed at how sleazy and trashy she looks. And everything looks so… cheap. I’m sure she’s paying top dollar for these contraptions but they look like she pieced them together herself, with the cheapest materials she could find.

  8. Chicagogurl says:

    ok, if i looked like her and was her age i would take big fashion risks, but this is all just so unbelievably sad and trashy. Someone needs to hug this girl and tell her she’s worth more than becomming some cheap knock-off of what a pop star is suppose to be. I just want to give her bath, move her nashville and put her on an aucostic set with normal clothes on.

  9. Deanne says:

    She’s made quit a transition. From purity ring wearing Disney star, to prancing around in an outfit that people attending the Adult Video Awards would deem tacky. What can possibly be going on in her life for her to be so desperate for attention? At least she kept her tongue in her mouth.

  10. teehee says:

    She’s a perfect example of the sad state of affairs for young womens’ minds as they try to find their ‘own’ sexuality (another topic entirely) and as their bodies blossom. Just pathetic. Good lord if I ever have a daughter, I would be sure to be a better example and to help her out on her way so she doesnt just flop around like a naked flounder in despair.

  11. Lucy says:

    Eh…I don’t know. The second outfit looks like something Courtney Stodden would wear to the grocery store, or something. And I didn’t really get what she was trying to say with “I’m on a whole other level of sh*t” but I feel like I wouldn’t like it if I did.

  12. Sachi says:

    There was a photo of her on Popsugar with the Kardashian-Jenner women sans Kim and Kris, and the Ks looked classy and modest compared to Miley who was wearing that hideously try-hard fishnet outfit.

    Lady Gaga has already done this gimmick years before and she’s also a try-hard, but Gaga also has an aesthetic that she’s been sporting since she burst into the scene. Katy Perry’s looks on her music videos can be just as wacky, but you can tell that it’s part of her public persona and one that she develops year after year.

    Miley just comes across as someone riding the coattails of those who came before her and who worked this concept so much better. Her shock value isn’t about introducing a brand new aesthetic, it’s about how desperate she is behaving.

    • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      I know right? She made them look off-the-charts classy! I’m happy for her that she’s been successful despite pretty much everyone saying that she wouldn’t but the desperation is strong in this one. Much too strong.

  13. Decloo says:

    I give her props for not having a boob job.

  14. NerdMomma says:

    Those high-waisted white shorts look actually painful. I’m squeezing my legs together just looking at those pics. Ouch.

  15. Eleonor says:

    In all this mess I don’t get why she has little people on stage. What’s the point?

  16. dorothy says:

    I know she’s done well with her song and video, but at what cost? Her self respect, her pride, her happiness?

  17. smee says:

    I don’t see this as “trashy” – I see this as a young woman is really going through something and acting out. The crying during the break-up songs, the see-through clothes, the immediate hook-up – it’s all giving her the impression that she’s in “control” when in fact she’s not. She’s losing it. She’s suffering over her break-up. Her parents are obvsly too stupid (or greedy) to understand and are doing nothing to help her. She may be self-medicating with weed right now, but it could easily escalate. I feel sorry for this young woman.

    • emmie_a says:

      I agree that she’s acting out. And everyone acts out in different ways. She has chosen to go the trashy route. No matter what is behind this, it’s trash.

    • Josephine says:

      She may be mentally suffering, but I seriously doubt that it is because of her break-up. She doesn’t strike me as someone who ever put any work into her relationship, or who would think twice about moving on to the next guy.

    • Caz says:

      It’s nothing more than PR. Miley’s team have realised she has no substance or talent so they’ve gone for the easiest angle. Plus throw in a ton of shock value to get people talking.

      Miley will sell a ton of singles in the immediate future. Long term…doubtful. We won’t be celebrating a Miley Cyrus retrospective in the next 5-10 years.

  18. Marty says:

    She cried because she knew it would get her a story. I would’ve believed her if it hadn’t been for the mascara running down her face. What performer doesn’t wear waterproof mascara?

    • blue marie says:

      it’s also in her video right? I think that’s what I heard..

      her outfits look so unconfortable

      • Marty says:

        Yeah, but even in the video the makeup wasn’t running down her face. As a makeup artist, when you do makeup for something like this you want it to last, especially something like mascara and eyeliner because it’s harder to touch that stuff up. She knew this would be her first performace after the Liam split. She even said it herself, she wants people to talk about her.

  19. Crack Fox says:

    The outfits look bad ON HER. Miley isn’t fierce enough to pull off something that risque without making me feel like a pedophile for looking. I think Rihanna could pull those off

    • skyler10 says:

      Me too, Rihanna can wear clothes like that and carry them off fierce. Miley is trying to hard…round baby face, pointed tongue, not sexy.

      • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        Exactly what I was thinking. Rihanna can wear some pretty outrageous shit and still look fierce and sexy. This look really isn’t Miley at all. That hipster, alternative phase was more her.

    • Tig says:

      Thanks for the pedo aspect of all this- it’s like she’s actually trying to look 12! When Brittany and Madonna did the “school girl” outfit- neither looked like they could actually be in middle school! It is just too creepy.

  20. Madriani's Girl says:

    Miley Virus knows her talent is pretty marginal which is why she feels the need to act so ridiculous. I will never understand why showing off your private parts or dressing like a wh*re is considered “edgy”. The only guys that sort of thing attracts are the kind of guys no one would want to associate with anyway.

  21. Chinoiserie says:

    I think she has some white slips covering her breasts as well as the black dots, am I wrong?

  22. jess says:

    I guess those outfits are to distract everyone from her awful singing.. as for liam, I always thought he was just using her for fame and the more I find out about him the more I think I’m right. He didn’t want any pda with miley cause he’s embarrassed by her. He is boring and a mediocre actor at best. After the hunger games is over nobody will remember him.

  23. Leila in Wunderland says:

    Neither of these outfits are anything that I would wear as is- even though I like parts of them individually.

    However, I don’t see anything wrong with a pop star wearing risqué or wild costumes and outfits, even if they’re unattractive. I think the crazy/risqué fashion is part of the novelty of being a pop star, and Miley clearly enjoys that. I know that if I were a pop star, I would wear all kinds of things, modesty and society’s ideas about being ‘a lady’ be damned. And yet, I am a sane, happy person- imgagine that? Just because a woman dresses a certain way doesn’t mean Something Is Wrong With Her, and just because a woman dresses conservatively doesn’t mean that Everything Is Right.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I 100% agree with you. My only comment is that with the fit of the white shorts, Someone Has a Crappy Tailor or else she has a really high tolerance for wedgies… Have fun with fashion, but c’mon, it should fit well. I felt the same about her flesh-toned outfit at the Grammys. The problem was that it didn’t FIT well, and I expect attention to detail when I’m enjoying wacky fashion.

    • Josephine says:

      It’s one thing to wear wild, edgy, crazy, but her entire repertoire is geared toward vulgar. She has left herself no room to do anything but nudity to get attention.

      And it does bother me that male stars don’t have to get naked to get attention for their music, but apparently young females do, unless of course they have a bit more talent.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        Yeah, it’s true that women in the entertainment industry go naked more than male celebrities. I would like to see things more even.

        But on the flipside, when men in Hollywood go naked, in their underwear, or topless, people will either ignore it or talk about how hot the guy is. But when women do it, they’re deemed desperate, trash, skanks, or scarlet-lettered and shamed for it in other ways, or people will assume that she did it not because she wanted to, but because she felt she had to- no matter who the woman is. And I don’t think that’s fair either.

        Also, there are several female singers a bit more talented than Miley Cyrus who have gone naked or who have worn revealing outfits, so I don’t think it’s always about talent.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        ITA, Josephine.

        When we see men with erections as frequently as we do scantily dressed, topless, or nude women, in the music and film industry, then I’ll know that the era of objectifying women is over.

        I’m talking about adult men and women here, not young boys and girls.

  24. Joy says:

    Ok the blurred out camel toe made me laugh hysterically for some reason.

  25. eb says:

    Her voice! At the iheart concert it sounded as if she was singing with it wrecked. I hope she goes to a vocal doc soon. It would be a shame to destroy her range and clarity all because of a publicity push for an album.

  26. some bitch says:

    I feel really uncomfortable with looking at these pictures. Despite knowing Miley’s 20 it feels like I’m looking at a child, and that doesn’t sit well with me.

    • Brickyard Ute says:

      Agreed. I’m not down with the slut shamers or the hard core defenders. She’s not a whore or some symbol for women’s rights. It makes me sad to watch her and see her Mom on the sidelines cheering her on. Even if it’s for attention this is a bad road for anyone to go down.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        I definitely don’t see her as a symbol of women’s rights. These teen stars probably know nothing about feminism, and I haven’t heard her talk about or stand up for any woman-related cause. But I just love experimentation with fashion, I never see it as something sad or bad, and I’m against all forms of slut-shaming. The human body is not a liability.

      • Ennie says:

        When I saw her mom cheering on her MTV show, I thought of Courtney Stodden’s mother actively pimping her, like nothing is too,much if you get attention, good or bad.
        Pathetic. If she at least could either dance well, sing well or have a nicer body. Those buns of her an dher body look flabby in those ugly shorts. Her appearance reminds me fo the racoon girl that used tomsing in a rock band? But she had a nicer voice, IIRC.

  27. Mia 4S says:

    Trash. Also the stage shows are ridiculous. There is no idea or cohesive spirit behind any of it. It’s like the kitchen sink version of every shock tactic done before by those of marginal talent in the pop world. My guess is she is still a puppet, just with new masters.

    The saddest thing is I would be more sympathetic if she was a new artist, just trying to get a break and without a cent in the bank. I get it, you do what you have too. This kind of desperation from a girl worth over $100 million? Gross.

  28. Quinn says:

    She is not sexy. Period. Sexiness is a combo of brains, a good look and real confidence…she has none of these things.

    All she provokes in me is pity. And, it’s hard to pity a young woman with that much money…but still, I do. That’s really saying something about how she comes across. Very sad.

  29. sqs says:

    A whole other level of sh*t is still sh*t.

  30. Ag says:

    Maybe I’m too old to understand her “art”, but this is super trashy. Unless you’re a professional stripper. Then it’s just plain tacky and ugly.

  31. Sarah B says:

    So Larry Rudolph = her heart and soul?

  32. Jayna says:

    Well, it’s working. She was a last-minute add-on because of all the recent publicity and controversy surrounding her and Wrecking Ball being a hit.

  33. Kiddo says:

    It’s not shocking, it’s becoming predictable, so yawn.

  34. Ginger says:

    Lord have mercy! She’s making strippers look good. I just CANT with her anymore.

  35. K-MAC says:

    LOL! I love her! Her outfits are not doing any harm to anyone. There are whole bunch of judgmental nasty people out there. WOW!

    Miley, you will laugh when you look back, you keep going!!

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      “Her outfits aren’t doing any harm to anyone. There are a whole bunch of judgmental nasty people out there. Wow!”

      K-Mac, K-Mac, K-Mac. You just don’t get it, do you? You’re not following the rules. Women are supposed to dress either completely modestly, or they’re supposed to dress conservatively with just a HINT of sex. Women who ‘cross the line’- are ‘dressing like wh-res’. Because there are clothes that are reserved only for prostitutes and strippers, those bad bad people, and there is clothing for decent ladies. There is obviously Something Very Very Wrong With a woman or pop star who would choose to ‘dress like a whore’. Obviously women who ‘dress like wh-res’ are crazy and troubled. You think these people can just wear what they want? Well they can’t! It is deeply wrong and offensive when women wear certain clothes, so these women must be called on it. Why, the fact that you even have a problem with what is being said here and that you would DARE to voice your concern shows that you’re clearly oversensitive, you’re violating people’s right to free speech, and you obviously don’t know what celebrity gossip sites are for.

      • TherapyCranes says:

        Lol Leila I love your fantastical sarcastic post. I’m just going to throw my 2 cents in and cuddle up with these comments.

        I don’t see the difference between MC’s outfits and those of Madonnas or Gagas. The only true difference is the human being wearing them. No one on this blog likes MC so they are going to rip her apart more than other popstars. People hate that she isn’t a disney princess and want her to go back to her old ways. Let the girl grow. If she gets lost on the way then that’s something she’s going to have to deal with.

      • Side-Eye says:

        Nobody believes you, or this try-hard. Stop it with this pseudo-empowerment bullshit trying to make people feel bad for having an opinion on what they think is trash. It doesn’t any more open-minded tjan anyone else.

      • Hakura says:

        @Leila IW – I’m totally w/you, in all your lovely sarcasm. >=) Although I honestly think Miley is probably going through a lot right now in regards to personal/emotional life-stuff, which does include evolving in personal fashion (which everyone, free to make their own choices, does).

        I do believe it’s obvious that Miley loves attention (which, given her chosen career, is a good thing). Honestly, *I* like attention, & am brave w/my fashion choices… (Decided on purple/blue hair w/a green streak through my bangs xD) I consider it (& makeup) an artistic outlet of expression (for everyone, but especially me, as an artist myself).

        It may be hard to see how some of her choices are ‘artistic’, & she may just lack a talent for ‘visual’ artistic ability. But I think people really over-think things a lot of the time. I feel so fortunate to live in a country where I *can* wear whatever I want, so I can’t shame her for doing the same thing (no matter how unattractive the outfit is, but that’s not to say I won’t express my opinion of it in general).

        That said, that doesn’t mean I dont think others should express negative opinions, that’s totally their prerogative. Hell, that’s 75% what shes going for, so she can stay in the news & these gossip sites. So those who have negative opinions, just keep in mind, you’re all playing right into her intentions. =)

        @Side-Eye – There was no reason to come across so *mean*… You weren’t being personally attacked or anything, take a pill or something, jeez.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Hakura: I agree with everything you said. Negative opinions about an outfit are one thing, but bigotry toward A PERSON for their fashion choices are another. And I also see and use fashion as a fun art form- it can be whatever the individual wants it to be.

        It’s just sad that people get all Massie Block/Newt Gingritch, just because a female pop star is using fashion for attention and she’s not playing by their particular dress code- oh horror of horrors, better pin a scarlet letter to her chest!

      • Side-Eye says:

        @Hakura, I find it ‘mean’ when whenever someone dares criticize a woman she’s seen as a slut-shamer or a prude, especially when most of the people on this website always clean up any criticism by emphasizing that they have no issue with a woman owning her sexuality.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Side-Eye: Criticizing a person’s fashion choices is just that- criticizing a person’s fashion’s choices.

        But when you imply that a woman is an inferior human being, or call her a sleaze and say she’s dressing like a whore, because of the skin she is showing, those are forms of slut-shaming. (That last one can be either slut-shaming or whorephobia, depending on the context. Whorephobia is a little different from slut-shaming).

        Bringing up social justice issues annoys people because it’s hard to analyze our own language and attitudes and look at bigotry within them. It’s human nature to want to say whatever we want about people and not give a damn about the problematic implications of what we say.

      • Side-Eye says:

        @Leila, all that’s cute and all, but what most people are criticizing is her overall try-hard behavior in conjunction with these horrible outfits and abysmal performances. Many have said that they wouldn’t even mind this stuff if she was at least talented and putting out good material/performances.And if you can’t see the desperation in her actions and the overall try-hardness of her entire persona, I really don’t know what to tell you. Not to mention that she’s been using little people for PROPS. But no, let’s turn this into some fake ass crusade about “women’s choices” and “slut-shaming”, because apparently the insensitively shown towards little people isn’t as big an issue as defending some confused butter-faced little girl acting an ass.

      • Leila in Wunderland says:

        @Side-eye: Slut-shaming is every bit as big of a deal as using different groups of people as accessories- an issue that many of us have talked about on this thread. You probably don’t see any of the comments here as slut-shaming because none of them actually use the word ‘slut’. But ho and whore are both pseudonyms for slut. It’s also slut-shaming anytime you imply that a person is bad or somehow inferior because of skin they’ve shown, dance moves they’ve done, or the amount of sex they’ve had.

        If this was just a Miley Cyrus issue- If Miley was the only woman on this planet who people called a ho, e.t.c., this wouldn’t be such a big deal. But it happens to other celebrities, and it happens to non-celebs. The attitude is that sane, smart,mature, self-respecting, respectable females dress demurely, and only crazy, troubled, desperate females with no self-respect wear revealing clothes, because wearing revealing clothes Is Bad. That is one form of slut-shaming. And don’t even get me started on the sex part of slut-shaming!

        If people just didn’t say things like that, this wouldn’t even be an issue.

      • Side-Eye says:

        @Leila. But you’re not treating the little people issue as as big a deal. You’re primarily focusing on what you think people are implying or ‘might’ be saying about Miley Cyrus regarding sexuality on a site where most of those commenting on it have no issue with her sexuality per se. Hell, you didn’t have anything to say about that when you were defending her ‘right to choose’, which no one on this site or in her camp are denying her, until I said something and it was barely an aside. Because apparently to you, one is more important than the other.

    • stacey says:

      I think Miley looks like crap. She is not rocking this look at all. None of this flatters her scrawny figure, big fake veneers and its just so desperate. She’s not cute, she’s not funny, she’s not smart and can we even call her a singer? She yells into a microphone in her best chipmunk voice…thats not singing. There is nothing redeeming about her. What she is doing is called having no class and no self respect. If she wants to build a career on making a fool out of herself, then shouldn’t we classify her as a comedian?

      Honestly, what cheap trick is left for her to pull at this point? A sex tape? She’s one step away from hooking up with Vivid and becoming a Farrah Abraham, Sydney Leathers. Her desperation for fame and attention and money is about at the level of those porno girls.

  36. Another Ann says:

    Miley has missed the distinction between edgy and trashy.

    I’m not even sure that second outfit even rises to the level of trashy. That’s a full on dumpster diving outfit there.

  37. Shelly says:

    She is so gross. So over her and stories about her.

  38. bettyrose says:

    That outfit wouldn’t really stand out on a less notorious performer. There’s nothing new about the minimalist look onstage. It’s just that she commands such a collective response of UGH this again? Maybe she will reinvent herself as the more mature Miley soon, but really will anyone care?

  39. Fan says:

    She wants to retire Madonna.

  40. Nicolette says:

    I’m sorry I just can’t. I’m not down with the whole shock and awe thing to prove you have talent. If you have true talent it will come through no matter what you wear. There wouldn’t be a need to have your camel toe on display. Disgusting.

  41. Ruyana says:

    Unless her boobs and vag are singing harmony they have no business appearing on the stage.

  42. Jenny says:

    Completely random and does not belong on this post, but my favorite hipster couple Zoe Kravitz and Penn Badgely and looking back on!!! Hooray!!!

  43. Madpoe says:

    …and the four horsemen showed up at the end, right?

  44. Aud says:

    Never thought I’d say this, but Miley has succeeded and out-trashed Rihanna.

    • Hakura says:

      That’s an accomplishment worthy of an award… Probably something they’d give out as a ‘side thing’ at the porn awards…

      Though…After recently seeing a cellphone camera video someone took at a Rihanna concert, (showing her bringing a fan up onstage for a ‘lap dance’ (which ended up with him flat on his back, her sitting on his chest, gyrating her hot-pants-clad-lady-bits in his face while a few thousand people watched & screamed), I’m not quite sure Miley has managed to surpass her just yet.

  45. The Original Mia says:

    Tacky, but then I thought the same about Lil Kim, Gaga and all the rest who wear crap like this and high-waisted shorts. Stop! You’re a walking fashion disaster.

    Liam and his new lady aren’t worth talking about. Budget. Both of them.

  46. lisa says:

    if she could sing or dance then i wouldnt care what she wore

    but she changes her clothes as a substitute for anything that requires talent

  47. Sloane Wyatt says:

    It’s a given that Miley’s persona is vulgar and unoriginal. However, by miming sex acts, exploiting little persons and black dancers, and generally marketing herself as ‘turnt out’, Cyrus more than does her part to reinforce our culture’s continuing relentless hypersexualization of young women and girls. I mean, do we really think it’s empowering for girls to think from a young age that their physical beauty or sexualized behavior is the sum of their worth?

    You know, we don’t have to passively accept treating girls as sexual objects. Instead, we need to be offering positive practical and psychological alternatives to the damaging values conveyed by our popular culture. We can start with demanding our schools teach students how to critically judge popular media, improve sex-education programs, and provide better access for girls to athletics and other extracurricular programs.

    Of course, parents also need to help children better interpret sexually explicit images in the media, but we need Real Girl “empowerment” groups and role models that can provide positive counterexamples to the massive sexualization saturation our girls and young women have to swim in everyday.

    • Hakura says:

      @Sloane – What you say is true. As much as I’m willing to talk about Miley having the right to wear what she wants (w/o getting a chorus is ‘slut-shaming type judgements of her as a person), i really dislike her stage show, beyond that.

      It was already obvious, from her ‘We Can’t Stop’ video that she was using black women back up dancers in such a way that they became ‘accessories’… & now, she’s expanded that to include little people. (1 of which she had twerking, before knealing down & slapping her ass. Classy.) I *know* it was all meant purely for shock value, but that doesn’t make it any less wrong/a bad example.

      Another thing that’s bothered me was the use of children’s icons in her stage shows. (such as teddy bears, balloons, & now flowers & rainbows) which, while also sexualizing, she’s using them quite obviously in such a way that they’re meant to be seen as the sort of things one might see during a drug trip. Singing about drugs is bad enough, but the implied ‘drugs are Fun!’ attitude of adding such things… It’s just a mess.

      She’s an adult, she can do what she wants, but she keeps bringing in the kids symbolism & combining it w/sex & drugs. That is a problem.

      • Kiddo says:

        Just reiterating something I’ve said before: The children, little people, toys and whatnot is flipping the bird to the pearl clutching Disney Moms who are insanely upset with Miley’s transition away from being simply a kid-friendly Disney product.

        She’s looking for attention, an identity, but essentially she is breaking out of the cage of Disney. It’s getting predictable and boring, in my opinion, and she probably should work more on her art than her marketing, but in the end, I don’t think it is any deeper than that.

    • Side-Eye says:

      What Sloane said.

    • Leila in Wunderland says:

      Someone definitely needs to have a serious talk with her about the difference between celebrating diversity among people v.s. Othering people. I don’t think this girl is racist, ableist, or transphobic, but her recent behaviors do seem disrespectful or trivializing toward different groups of people. She seems clueless about her white, able, cisgender privilege.

      But I’m going to disagree with you about the clothes and dance moves, for a few reasons. One of the reasons is because unless a person is wearing an outfit that promotes some kind of bigotry, I’m really against a society banning certain outfits or dance moves. I do believe that artists should be able to openly express all parts of human life in their work- including sexuality. I also don’t believe that the sight of certain dance moves or clothing is truly what harms children, and I believe that the way humans have reacted to clothing and dance moves over the centuries has been far more unhealthy and destructive than the actual things themselves. Too often womens bodies are treated like a danger or a liability- like we’d better keep our bodies covered up and abstain from certain dance movements, lest we end up corrupting society and the minds of every little girl on the planet.

      To me, a woman choosing to dress or dance a certain way does not, in and of itself, send the message that a woman’s sex appeal is her worth (any more than a woman choosing to wear a purity ring or a hijab sends the message that womens’ purity is their worth). To me the thing that sends that message is the fact that women are expected to make their bodies fit The Standard of sexiness and beauty, and when women’s bodies don’t conform to that standard, they’re shamed for it. As a kid I never personally felt that my sexiness or body was my worth based on the clothes and dance moves of other women. But I did feel like society was sending that message through people’s attitudes about the way women’s bodies should look. I hope that makes sense.

      • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        @Leila you’ve raised a lot of good points in this comment, I love it :)

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        You do make sense, Leila. I’m not in favor of banning dancing or scanty clothing, but you’ve nailed our culture’s relentless presentation of how women’s bodies should look.

        This isn’t a call to stifle or police emerging sexuality, but rather to call attention to the connection between sexual development and the underlying messages about women that exist in our culture. Young girls are witnessing the value that is placed on women for their youth and physical appeal. The climate we exist in perpetuates “myths of women’s unconditional sexual availability and object status, and thus undermine women’s rights to sexual autonomy, physical safety and economic and social equality.” Basically, the images that we’re selling young girls are selling them short.

  48. marina says:

    I guess it’s a good way to distract people from the fact that you have ZERO talent

  49. LAgirl says:

    I know all of you Hate Miley and thinkshe’s trash, gross…whatever. I happen to think she’s hilarious and I like her. She’s a smart, successful girl who I think will be just fine. O another note, her body is awesome! Not my favorite look for her clothing wise but I would love to have her abs and legs! Sick bkd, for sure. Stop all the hate, it ages you. Xx

    • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      Read the comments before you generalise, there are a number of people defending Miley’s look and not everyone that is criticising her look is slut-shaming either. And as for being smart, she really isn’t because if she was, she would know that using dwarfs and black people as on-stage accessories is a hurtful and tactless thing to do. A smart young musician would be someone like Taylor Swift whose fame and empire has continued to grow, Miley’s whole shock-value thing is great now and gets people talking but this kind of success isn’t the easiest to sustain. Let’s see if she’s still getting number 1s two years from now.

      • LAgirl says:

        FYI- Im 25 y/o and yes doll, I am black. It takes a lot more to offend me, but you can go ahead and get stressed out on my behalf. :)

    • Ennie says:

      Miley used to have a nicer body before she went full thin for this album. She looked great in bikinis when she was out and about on the beach.
      I used to like her even after she cut her hair, but when she lost even more weight, I thought something less positive was up.
      One thing is that she is a young person evolving, and aother that she is putting out a fake persona, like she HAS to look a certain way and behave like she has been lately to impress, to shock, because being herself is not enough.
      She did not use to look like this, she just recently started to do it, to me, that reeks of fakeness.
      Of course her parents will cheer on her every antic, if she is the one making the $$$$$$$$$$$
      In the wya her parents behave, and how she is expecting the world to revolve around her, she reimnds me of LiLo, but she wishes she was Rihanna, but even Rihanna is much naturally sexier.
      I wish some Miley defender could explain the use of the little people behind her. That is apalling.

  50. Claudia says:

    She’s so predictable. Anyway, I think her people are leaking the (fake) Mike Will stories to balance out the Liam/Eiza stories. Again, predictable.

  51. Adrien says:

    Not sure what the censor bars in the 4th and 5th pics are trying to block.

  52. HK9 says:

    Is now a good time to call her a talentless hack?? :-)

  53. skuddles says:

    Just yuck.

  54. Asdfg says:

    I really wouldn’t mind her at all if only she would ( and I know she can ) put on a worthy performance.

    Hell, she COULD be sexy if she’d do just that. Perform. Not prance around smacking little peoples bums, using black women as booty shakers and foam fingers to uhh hmm…cough…. pleasure herself.

    I’m pretty sure people had to pay a hefty price to attend the VMA’s and IheartRadio festival. Even if you get a seat in the nosebleed sections you pay a hefty price. Of course 1 or 2 bad performances would still be worth attending but still I wouldn’t pay $5 to see Miley perform. Nope.

  55. Dommy Dearest says:

    So Amanda, Britney and Miley were all on the same drugs… Did they cut Miley off and she’s having the meltdown the same as the other two?

  56. gg says:

    I think she’s actually got a lot of talent. Not nuts about her choice of clothing, but the problem I have is the super manic facial expressions and the pop-out eyes, combined with the outrageous acting out, super skinny yet flabby butt (not working out, might not be eating), and bragging about ‘people are very impressed with me because I only sleep four hours at night’. Somebody looks very much to me like they’re on speed. So the reason that bothers me is that she seems to be on a trajectory that’s going to end badly if it’s fueled by drugs.

  57. Byte Me says:

    She’s nothing but a rich hillbilly in need of rehab. Maybe she can use Lindsay’s old room.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      As a hill”person”, thank you very much, I must say that’s a bit harsh, however prescient.

    • Kosmos says:

      Thanks…that was hilarious! Sorry, but the hillbilly in need of rehab just did it for me. About Miley, yes, I’m getting oh so tired already of the (a) tongue, (b) silly, skimpy outfits, and (c) look at me being silly & at the same time being sexy-kind of act. She might just be doing her own ‘thing,’ but the test period is O-V-E-R. If any of you have heard her sing, it’s also noteworthy to mention that she doesn’t have much in the way of an interesting voice either…she’s all act and play and very little substance or real talent. It worked for the tweeners when she started out as Hannah Montana, but I just don’t see her being able to raise the barre or her singing ability either. Maybe this is all she can muster up, so she’s throwing it at us. Are we bored to death yet? I am.

  58. Lila says:

    I find her so revolting lately. The sucking and licking of tools in the Wrecking Ball video (or whatever she was doing–I’ve tried to block it out of my memory), the thrusting around with that foam finger between her legs, sticking her gross tongue out all the time. I remember that people were turned off my Gwyneth Paltrow taking about her pubic hair, but I find Miley so much worse.

  59. Jane says:

    If I were to use the words I have going on in my brain right now to describe what I think of that mesh outfit I’d be banned and have to go to confession. WTF!!!!

  60. Corrie says:

    It all screams desperation for attention and not the right kind. Not the kind of music appreciation that a long career as a innovative artist would want. Who wants to be the White Lil Kim – Video Ho. Because she seems like she wants to fill the job. Ugh. Girl, Miley is tired! Please put some clothes on and go back to the studio and start over.

  61. JudyK says:

    Oh B.S. w/ all the condoning whatever goes. There is a LINE here. She has crossed it and continues to cross it. Next we will see complete nudity and live sex and some of you will also condone that.

    I’m so sick of this CLASSLESS society we live in.

  62. bijlee says:

    50 freaking shades of grey! This girl should be in it, she would LOVE it. And she suits the main characters level of stupidity and annoying and love for her mom and dad. Seriously can she? it would be such a fun movie to watch then. So much hilarity would ensue.

  63. JudyK says:

    Just one more comment on Miley. Excusing her for just being young and finding herself is baloney.

    She is totally uneducated, so she has to resort to using sex and outrageousness to garner attention, because any CHILD knows negative attention is better than none. Yeah, let’s promote her and have young kids try to emulate her by under achieving. What a role model. If she had any talent, she wouldn’t need to let her obscene antics and lack of clothing supersede her so-called talent.

    And before I get off my soapbox, I have to say that Charlize Theron is 1000x more sexy than Miley could ever conjure up in her mindless little brain and that’s with Charlize being totally covered up in skinny jeans, a cute top, and booties.

    Put your tongue back in your mouth, Miley, and go away until you grow up.

    • stacey says:

      ITA! We should not raise the next generation of girls to respect what Miley is doing at this point in her career. Sexualizing and objectifying women in the media is nothing new. Miley is just too dumb to realize that. She acts like she is on the cutting edge of entertainment. She is objectifying herself in a way our patriarchal society has been objectifying women for years. Her whole act is centered around her sexuality, her naked body, and sexually provocative gestures (I refuse to call what she does dancing). She has been reduced to nothing but that. What is horrifying is she, a privileged white woman worth millions, and her privileged parents seem to think this is just dandy! She runs around with this false sense of power but patriarchy has her right where they want her, selling sex for the male dominated consumer culture. She is clueless that she is complicit in her own objectification. WAKE UP Miley, be AWARE!

      Her parents should be ashamed of themselves for supporting her in making a fool out of herself in this way. Thank god when I was in college being cray cray and clueless- kinda like Miley, my parents didn’t tell me “GO ACT A FOOL IN FRONT OF AMERICA ON MTV!!!! DO IT! IT WILL BE GREAT!” Bad parenting. Bad decisions.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        Both of these comments, THANK YOU.

        This is nothing more than getting attention. It’s obvious she didn’t get the love she needed from her parents. They were too busy figuring out ways to turn their daughter into a cash cow.

  64. Leila in Wunderland says:

    @JudyK: Not one person here is saying that she’s a good role model for little kids. As a matter of fact, I bet most people here don’t see celebrities as role models for little kids in general.

    When she’s doing things that are actually, you know, wrong- like her ignorant treatment of different groups of people, then she should definitely be called out for it. But fashion is a harmless matter of personal choice.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I don’t see where she’s indicating that Miley is a good role model. The way I took it is that a lot of parents probably allow their daughters to continue to idolize Miley and therefore they are going to emulate what she’s doing. As badly as that sucks there are thousands of parents that continue to allow their daughters to watch and support this girl. And those are the same types of people that will allow their teenaged daughters to wear items adults would wear if they were going to the club or something of that sort. Or at least that’s how I took it. I can’t count the amount of middle school and high school girls that walk down the street when school is out that are wearing things that I, as an adult, wouldn’t dream of wearing due to the tightness, low cut, or shortness of the outfit. I find it disgusting personally what Miley does and wears since the youth is incredibly impressionable and parents are unconcerned.

      But that’s just my two-cents :D

  65. chalkdustgirl says:

    The granny underwear she constantly wears remind me of the adult diapers I used to help my aunt out with. Seeexxxyyy, Miley.

  66. Erm says:

    The outfit doesn’t work because aside from being hideously ugly, it needs a cool person to wear it. Miley just looks too over eagerwith the big goofy grin.

  67. ccinkissimmee says:

    Nice shoes in the last pic.

  68. Itsa Reallyme says:

    We’ve all already seen your boobs and your vag, Miley. Multiple times. It’s old news. Let’s try to think of a new angle to seem “artistic” and “creative”, mkay?

  69. Luna says:

    If I was Liam and saw this, there wouldn’t be one ounce of regret over the end of the relationship.

    Miley is an out-of-control train going downwards and donwards until it crashes.

  70. Caz says:

    Miley has no integrity or talent.

    Ignore her and she’ll go away.

  71. Sarah says:


    I honestly think it’s ridiculous to blurr a front wedgie. We’re all grown ups. At least in the pop-up pic you could post the original pictures.

    Maybe it’s because I am from Europe but it always puzzles me what can be so terrible wrong about showing a nip slip or a wedgie while you have movies such as “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” with LOADS of violence playing tonight on SyFy’s primetime. I honestly don’t get it and I vote for original pictures on this page as it used to be on this page? Why change it?

  72. Evie says:

    She’s too much of a goody two shoes to wear all the clothes she stole from Rihanna’s closet. She just not edgy enough to pull off white girl ratchet chic. And it’s her record company telling her what to wear. Not her heart and soul. . . Zero originality!

  73. Hypocrisy says:

    There is something particuliarly disturbing but also hillarious, desperate and pathetic in Miley’s Madonna wanna be phase.

    She is trying to pull off the skanky, outrageous, sexy trick and the only thing she succeeds in is being the first two only with her lack of sex appeal devoid of any form of grown up sensuality and graced with a juvenile assLESS body.

  74. Merritt says:

    She is so pathetic. But she thinks she is badass. She is a completely delusional person.
