Miley Cyrus wore Moschino & brought an agender date to the amfAR gala

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus wore a wild, heart-print Moschino dress to last night’s amfAR event in NYC. The dress was custom designed by Jeremy Scott, and his designs do well on Miley. She looks gorgeous even though she’s flashing her armpit hair. Remember how faded and sad she looked at the Met Gala? There was none of that last night. Miley had a fantastic time and barely stood still. She was honored for her work in the fight against AIDS. Miley raised $66,900 for her bedazzled Caitlyn Jenner artwork during the auction.

Miley’s date was writer Tyler Ford, who has featured recently on her Instagram page:

sMeet Tyler (@tywrent), a 24 year old living in New York City, and my date for @amfar tonight!!! Tyler is a queer, biracial, agender person, whose pronouns are they/them/theirs. Tyler shares about their identity, experiences and hopes saying: “My whole life, I was led to believe that there were only two genders. I thought I had to shrink myself to fit into a box that was never going to contain me. It took years for me to find words for my gender identity, and to feel comfortable expressing myself as I am.”

Another thing happened last night. Tish Cyrus brought her boobs to the event. Billy Ray looks like he wants to disappear, but that’s his general expression these days.

Andy Cohen was also honored at this event. He looked dashing in white.

Victoria Justice wore my favorite dress of the evening. This is a Donna Karan number, and it’s so classic and beautiful.

Laverne Cox looked like a stone cold fox. She made cutouts work. Amazing.

Tyson Beckford wore ripped up jeans to the event. Classy.

Ellen Barkin wore a royal blue dress and an amazing diamond necklace/bracelet combo.

Anja Rubik wore the craziest dress! I think this is Moschino too, but I could be wrong.

    What the hell is Miley’s mother wearing?

  2. Shambles says:

    Living for Miley’s hair.

  3. Pandy says:

    I bet she was jumping around – she looks a bit hopped up. That last head shot of her – teeny tiny pupils yet the woman on her left has larger pupils. Same lighting … different eyes?

    • MrsB says:

      Hmm I didn’t notice at first, but you’re right, those are some tiny, pinpoint pupils.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Am I the only person who thinks this girl is a wreck? She has always had an air of confidence about her, but there is no substance to back it up. She’s not very bright, definitely not original, and is offensive just to get attention. She can’t stay with one thought/person/look/worthy cause – now it’s gender issues, tomorrow who knows?

      “Very few things will make the pupil abnormally constrict… Opiate class drugs such as Heroin, Fentanyl, Codeine, Methadone and Morphine stimulate the parasympathetic side of the autonomic nervous system and cause pupil constriction.” Her previous drug of choice, MDMA, does the opposite.

      • Marie-France says:

        Yes, Belle Epoch, she seems very lost.

      • stacey says:

        Miley reminds me of the Dolezal woman who co-opted the black activist culture and pretended to be black.

        i feel like Miley masqueredes as this or that so she can feel edgy and have an agenda. there is always a disingenious feeling to whatever she is advocating for at the current moment. Especially because she is so shamelessly ignorant and uneducated about the issues she talks about. thus, i dont think its coming from a place of true experience / situatedness (like the current a-gender stuff she’s been talking about).

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I support many of her same causes, I think she is moderately talented, but I just have no patience for her. Sometimes an uneducated person positioning themselves as a spokesperson on an issue can have a negative effect if they don’t understand the substance of the issue.

        She exhausts me like she is a child I have to babysit. Her constant begging for attention is too much. This all just seems like a continuation of her 2013 “I’m Obnoxious, Ya’ll!” tour.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Thank you – you guys expressed it much better than I did! Of course homelessness was a good cause, but, being an idiot, she picked a young man who ran away from home to avoid drug charges. Puh-Leeze!

        Haven’t heard anything about her poster boy for gender fluidity, but I’m pretty sure it’s more than changing your accessories.

      • Gretchen says:

        It’s kinda gross and exploitative how she continues to use marginalised folks as props. Maybe she thinks she’s doing a good thing highlighting various issues, but it just comes across all wrong, flitting between causes like they’re costume changes.

      • Toodles45 says:

        @gretchen and belle, +1000 the first thing i thought when I saw this is how incredibly self-serving she seems about it

    • The Other Katherine says:

      I wouldn’t read too much into that. The woman on the left has dark irises, which will filter out more bright light than Miley’s light ones, meaning that the dark-eyed lady’s pupils don’t need to contract as much to achieve the same degree of glare reduction. Light-eyed people are on average more glare-sensitive, and their irises’ inefficiency in blocking excess light is a big part of the reason why. Miley’s pupils look totally normal to me for a light-eyed person in a situation with high-intensity lights and camera flashes.

  4. Nicole says:

    I would love the outfit sans gloves I think. Its a bit much. But she looks good and her date looks really happy. I’ve always said that Miley does love her fans and encourages them to be who they are. Can’t hate on that
    Victoria Justice looks so classy. Its hard to believe she is the same girl that used to be on that show with Jamie Lynn Spears. It seems like another lifetime ago

  5. Sharra55 says:

    Well, Slap me naked and hide my clothes – Miley looks really pretty. She looks like she is having fun and happy.

  6. InvaderTak says:

    MC is annoying and stunt-ing. It’s really hard to believe she cares about the cause all that much because whenever she talks about it it’s all about HER. Remember the “homeless” guy she brought to an event?

    Laverne wins. Damn.

    • lucy2 says:

      “Laverne wins. ” She usually does!

      I like Victoria’s and Ellen’s looks as well.

      • FLORC says:

        Laverne is Stunning!
        Ellens dress is nice. I thought it was Cache and the necklace was just the neckline accessorie. It looks Jersey. I hope it’s not.

        And when will Miley learn. Until she puts her wants for attention behind the causes important to her she’s sabotaging any efforts.

        She needs parents that will set her straight. Not employees afraid to rock the boat and lose their pay check.

    • Cran says:

      Laverne Cox will always win. If I were a puppy I would wriggle at the sight of her.

  7. lisa says:

    are her fake teeth so big she cant close her mouth over them? thirsty little chipmunk

  8. jinni says:

    I’ll be honest, I’m seriously suspicious of the sincerity of Miley’s supposed LGBTQ and genderqueer connection. I just feel, like many before her, she’s just using it to come off as different and shocking and as soon as it no longer gets her the attention she wants she’ll move on to something else. Looking at her date I just feel bad for them because all I can think about is that she is using them as a prop for her new image. IDK.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Just like the homeless dude.

    • FingerBinger says:

      @jinni I agree. She’s latching on to something that everyone is talking about ,transgender and trans identity. It’s very disingenuous.

    • belle de jour says:

      Looks like Miley has found a way to have her sophomore year at Sarah Lawrence without actually having to enroll.

    • serena says:

      I don’t think she’d be lying about her being ‘gender fluid’ or whatever just to be in the spotlights.

    • lucy2 says:

      I have to agree – the attention faded and moved to someone else, so it feels like she’s trying to get that back for herself.

    • Colette says:

      Well she visits the LA LGBT Center regularly,they tweet about it.Miley and Joan Jett started a charity to help homeless LGBT.I support her for bringing attention to this issue.Approximately 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBT.

      • Loopy says:

        Maybe she seems insincere because she is so over the top with it, it becomes about her. Just to extend on the topic of sincerity lady gaga seems to not talk much about LGBT anymore in all fairness she has been under the radar. One person that I found to be insincere I saw her on Big Brother UK9celeb version) Michelle something she kept referring to the community as ‘my gays’ very objectifying, they are not your must hand bag.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “Approximately 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBT”

        I wish she’d talk more about the cause, because it is so worthy! Stats like that are awful, but what is even more awful is the reasoning behind that stat. Being rejected and sometimes abused by your family, the people that are supposed to love and protect you, simply because of your sexuality? There are so many tragic stories behind that stat.

  9. Mzizkrizten says:

    Why is gender confusion/fluidity so accepted but race confusion/fluidity is not? Serious question?

    • FingerBinger says:

      If you’re referring to Rachel Dolezal ,there’s a difference between confusion and lying.

    • Nicole says:

      I explained it to someone else as this:
      Gender and sex are not the same. One is biological and one is a social construct. Trans people do not deny their biological roots.
      Race is a mix between a social construct and a biological one. Its a mix between your DNA and your culture. Its an interconnecting construct but you cannot have one without the other. Transracial only applies to a narrow group of people: adopted children and biracial children. Otherwise its appropriation.

      • belle de jour says:

        “Race is a mix between a social construct and a biological one.”
        – As can gender be.

        “Transracial only applies to a narrow group of people: adopted children and biracial children.”
        – According to whom? This can – and will – be debated… and probably fluid.

        “Otherwise its appropriation.”
        – That is another judgement call that depends entirely upon whom you grant the authority to define “transracial.”

      • Tifygodess says:

        @nicole you are correct people confuse sex and gender all the time. It’s not the same thing. You are born a sex, you are not born a gender. Society labels you a gender.

        @Bella “- as gender can be”
        but gender is not biological. Your Sex is. There is a difference Between the two.

      • belle de jour says:

        @ Tifygodess: I believe ‘gender’ and ‘sex’ are still up for healthy debate (this coming from a previous Judy Butler student). While I understand the distinction and appreciate it as meant, I also think it is an ongoing process of identification and semantics probably subject to change.

    • belle de jour says:

      I think this is absolutely a valid question & am still interested in pondering it as well – beyond the specifics of a single incident or person.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Because racial confusion, as examples have shown so far, seems to be about reinforcing stereotypes for one’s benefit either in terms of attention or income. It relies on the idea that being black isn’t about series of conditions forced on a section of the population because of their skin tone but some natural inclination that we were all born sistah gurls who are all equivalent with no distinguishing characteristics.

      Black is literally a skin tone. Saying that you feel you should have been born black is saying, “I enjoy the ignorance society has about your culture and feel that I can jump into these incredibly complicated issues of economics, region, sex, and education by merely painting my skin.”

      Does that answer your question?

      • PhenomenalWoman says:

        “Black is literally a skin tone. Saying that you feel you should have been born black is saying, “I enjoy the ignorance society has about your culture and feel that I can jump into these incredibly complicated issues of economics, region, sex, and education by merely painting my skin.”

        It sounds like you have given this some serious thought; kudos. But I respectfully disagree. In the past, we’ve seen transgender people who have also been “reinforcing stereotypes” of women – i.e. women should be pretty and wear lingerie and heels. How is getting a tan and sporting a curly-wig different from that in order to show “blackness”?

        Not being adversarial in any way; just enjoying the discussion and conversation and want to hear more.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Well, for starters, getting a tan and sporting a wig the way Rachel did is blackface.

        This was what I meant initially by reinforcing stereotypes. It decides that blackness is the darkening of the skin tone and a large Afro when neither of those things defines being black. There are black people with blue eyes, there are black people with light skin, there are black people with straight hair that are still black. Being black comes in variety and that variety reflects a lot about culture and society as well as the way we are treated.

        Appropriating aspects of black culture is rewarded when you are white but insulted when you are black, even if you are light skin, ex: Zendaya. I believe this just goes back to the idea of reinforcing those stereotypes. Liking rap music doesn’t mean you should have been born black, enjoying black art/food/music doesn’t mean you should have been black, sympathizing and fighting for black rights doesn’t mean you should have been born black. Being black is about the skin you’re born in and how society treats you. It is millions of people from different economic, sociological, educational backgrounds sharing a common quality and how the world treats them despite those differences because of their skin.

        You can not magically be black by cherry picking singular positive aspects of it while also avoiding the true conditions that led to the feeling of ‘blackness’. You do not live life for years as a white person and think your admiration/exotification/jungle fever affection of blackness eliminates your Privelage and position in society.

      • belle de jour says:

        @ The Eternal Side-Eye:
        “Well, for starters, getting a tan and sporting a wig the way Rachel did is blackface.”

        Is getting hair removal, big boobs and sporting longer hair & a bustier ‘chickface’?

        I ask because I think we’re also (seriously) talking about semiotics and cultural signifiers here… and because I think the terminology and the debate may be changing from the historically-specific terminology and ideas of both a term and a practice like ‘blackface.’

        I appreciate your point, but I also don’t agree that “Black is literally a skin tone.”
        Just for starters, that might be news to albino children born to two ‘black’ parents.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:


        I don’t think it’s changing at all. I do believe excuses are being made for it. I believe this is a symptom of the privilege Rachel has been given based on her true position in society. Under the tan she is still a white woman so she is being given permission and sympathy to explore her options because she is white. Permission that would never be given to a POC by the same society that is coddling Rachel. It is to say that picking up an Afro, darkening her skin, creating a cliched past of being beaten and oppressed is acceptable because there is a slim chance she might be doing this for good? No, we have come to understand racism is more intricate than a fervent hatred of other races and homophobia doesn’t mean one is simply afraid of homosexuals. These terms have not been abandoned just because our examples of their destruction have been updated. It is the same now with blackface.

        So if an individual pretends to have cancer and manages to raise money and awareness only to be discovered a fraud do we reward them? No, we do not. Because the idea of pretending to be one injured minority (those suffering with cancer) for any reason is considered unacceptable. This is what I mean by blackface. You can create some mockery of being black and be rewarded by society because blacks are still considered worthless by the same greater society.

        I think I addressed the fact that being black comes in varieties and those varieties, though differing in skin tone, hair texture, and eye color, still feel the burden society has placed on them because of their race. I mentioned this in how a way Zendaya wore her hair was mocked while on Kylie Jenner it was gushed over. Or how ‘big lips and big butts’ weren’t really considered attrative in society as a whole till women such as the Kardashians started to get injections to pump theirs up to the point of ridiculousness. Albino’s while differing in pigment are not by any means not black, while I can see why there’d be some confusion based on the term I used.

      • belle de jour says:

        @ The Eternal Side-Eye:

        I disagree that it is not changing; re-defitinitons of identity and meaning have run rampant in this discussion alone. It’s changing, and it’s a cultural phenomenon in progress. In fact, all the markers are here for exactly the sort of thing that *does* prompt evolution of language, accepted lexicon and sociological context, imo.

        Re the cancer comparison: I understand your point about one person’s easy adoption quickly becoming a mockery of another person’s lack of choice or permanent condition. I would not defend her actions; I would always defend anyone’s right to talk about the motivations behind them without being labeled an apologist.

        The ‘big lips and big butts’ issue is complex and interesting as well; there’s a long history of what used to be packaged as ‘hottentot’ racist imagery, not to mention defining ‘other’ as ‘exotic,’ ‘forbidden,’ etc. & exaggeration as caricature along with it. When you add J. Lo also helping to make the booty a more mainstream factor – and you consider her background & heritage – it’s yet another aspect of the mix.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:


        I believe society has said it is acceptable to pick apart black women. To claim aspects of them, to insult and mock them for being other, to use their bodies as a way for white people to express their own sexuality and body issues. There’s mountains of documents on this very subject exploring the way since slavery the bodies and sexuality of blacks were manipulated by whites, how their bodies were used as stand ins. To me Rachel is an escalation in that disrespect and as evidence I use her own methods of dishing out further ignorance and judgement of other people for the crimes she was guilty of.

        Rachel judged others for passing, Rachel said other lighter skin individuals of genuine ethnic background couldn’t understand the struggle of their darker counterparts, Rachel said it was unacceptable that whites would portray early Egyptians in the movie ‘Exodus’. I think trying to parlay Rachel’s actions into some internal debate on heritage ignores the facts that Rachel was doing this purely due to ego and with multiple instances of fraud. That is why I made the comparison to someone pretending to have cancer to commit fraud or even the multiple recent examples of waiters/waitresses who faked receipts where their customers not only didn’t tip but made homophobic/racist slurs. This woman was not a guardian angel in false brown skin, she committed several destructive cruel acts with pounds of lies mixed in. But Rachel will be forgiven because she targeted the correct groups, minority groups struggling to be give respect and equal representation.

        This changing in cultural identity goes exactly one way, if we want to pretend it exists, the way it always has: for whites to explore and enjoy while POC have no options. Rachel, as a ‘black’ woman committed repeated fraud and showed her hypocrisy, as recently as 2008 she was still a white woman fighting for her rights even as she was guilty of plagiarism and cheating. At that time it wasn’t that she cheated, no it was that her a University was discriminating against her due to her race. The race of white. So did this epiphany come once she lost her case? As a black woman she existed only long enough to create a cliched horrific background, make discussions on her experiences as a skin tone she never was, discuss the struggle of a hair that she bought in a store, and manipulate a discussion with examples she’d never lived.

        The last white person to publicly claim and try to live their life as a black person years ago even admitted time had shown him it wasn’t real. I believe its just a way for some to escape their own lives by embracing an identity totally separate to their own.

      • belle de jour says:

        @ The Eternal Side-Eye:
        Thank you for your response. As it happens, I am fairly well-versed in (or, at the least, well-acquainted with) quite a bit of literature and studies and ‘mountains of documents’ addressing the issues to which you refer. It’s been an abiding interest for a while now.

        “This changing in cultural identity goes exactly one way, if we want to pretend it exists, the way it always has: for whites to explore and enjoy while POC have no options.”
        That is not strictly true at all, as you probably know; it is, in fact, verifiable that many people of ‘mixed-race’ backgrounds have chosen one or the other… or changed their minds later. Blanket statements like this are not terribly useful, nor do they take into account several variables, possibilities or changing mores, imo.

        “I think trying to parlay Rachel’s actions into some internal debate on heritage ignores the facts that Rachel was doing this purely due to ego and with multiple instances of fraud.”
        Once again: I am not arguing the specific injustices done by one Rachel Dolezal; I’m not ignoring ANY facts. But I certainly see the value in her actions becoming a catalyst for further debate & discussion about an issue that has not yet been resolved – by a long shot – especially in this country. Why is an internal debate about heritage a bad thing, anyway? And how exactly do you know for sure ‘that Rachel was doing this purely due to ego’?

        I think it was that – and a whole more complicated than that – as well; I seriously doubt it can be boiled down to one ‘pure’ or sole motive. I also think it’s better than O.K. to ‘parlay’ this into any number of discussions and topics, as they occur. Talking about them does not negate the laundry list of what she did; there are several truths and questions and faults and injustices coexisting in the same room here.

        “I believe its just a way for some to escape their own lives by embracing an identity totally separate to their own.”
        That ^^^ interests me a great deal. And the fact that I imagine Ms. Dolezal would not have seen (and, evidently, may still not see or admit) the identity she chose is ‘totally separate’ from her own is even more of a tangled warp to unravel.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:


        People of mixed race however have a direct connection to the either race they choose to associate with. It is not an invention of the mind. In terms of someone pretending to be an ethnicity they are not in this current culture a black woman would never be given acceptance. This has basis in our country’s one drop rule and the belief that blacks were of an impure bloodline. This is as I’ve said evident in how even when we see similar fashion, style, or beauty features on two individuals of difference race they’re judged favorably on a white individual. A black woman stating she considered herself white would be considered a black woman living with delusions.

        It’d be impossible for me to say 100% that Rachel did it for ego, but when you come to a conclusion you examine the evidence and see where it leads. Rachel is about victimhood and attention whether she is pretending to be a black woman or a white woman suing after she wrongfully cheated. There are a number of pieces of evidence of things Rachel did that ultimately benefited her and no one else. I do agree there’s a complicated mixture of things that led to this woman’s destructive behavior.

    • Lola says:

      I actually think they’re almost the same thing.

      But, being gender fluid is about not identifying with a single gender role, they argue that they’re more neutral to what society claims is “male” or “female”.

      As for gender identity, I think it’s equally damaging as a stereotype of what is a male or a female. FtM transexuals usually go for the “butch” look, and MtF talk about the superficial side of being female.

      And both gender and race are very much human inventions. No matter how much some people want to say race does exist, apart from appearance, I don’t think there really is scientific “race test” or anything like that.

      • belle de jour says:

        You probably couldn’t see it, but I was doing embarrassing & awkward cheerleader-type movements while reading this comment.

    • Mzizkrizten says:

      Looooove the intelligent debate, guys, thanks.
      The lying thing I don’t buy. Caitlyn Jenner lied for years. She’s finally being honest and kudos but still, she lied. Isn’t being transgender a sort of lie? To have a penis but dress as and try to pass as a woman. Some even use the women’s restroom. That’s misrepresentation. No hate whatsoever just confusion on my part as to why one is applauded and lauded as bravery and woohoo embrace your true self. This dolezal woman did just that in her mind and now it’s been exposed and black women are mad that she kinked her hair and got tan? Are authentic women with uteruses mad that men can get breasts and vaginas and be ‘woman’? Who is making the rules here LOL

      • Colette says:

        There are similarities but they are not the same.Just like there are similarities between racism,sexism, homophobia but they are not the same.
        There are physiological differences that support the existence of transgenders.Studies have shown differences in brain scans.
        Rachel is a compulsive liar, just last year she checked off White,Black and American Indian on a job application for Spokane Police Commission.At the same time she was saying she wasn’t White.So if this disorder does exist I need to hear from a more credible person.

      • L&Mmommy says:

        I find this debate so fascinating and for now I feel like the difference that people are trying to make between someone changing their gender vs. their race is not that clear to me. I think there is room for debate. The Eternal Side-Eye says Rachel is reinforcing stereotypes with her portrayal of a black woman, OK. But the same thing could also be said about Caitlyn Jenner when she did sexy pose in lingerie on that magazine cover, no? Isn’t she reinforcing the stereotypes that women should have long hair, wear makeup and be “sexy” and “beautiful”? Rachel IS a pathological liar, maybe even a sociopath we can all agree there. But Caitlyn also lied for 65 years to everybody about who she was. The lies are different but they are lies, nonetheless. So I’m not sure that using “stereotypes” and “lies” to establish a difference between Caitlyn and Rachel is the right way to go because they have both done their fair share.

      • hme says:

        The BIG difference between Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal is that Caitlyn is not now nor has she ever tried to pass herself off as a women who was BORN biologically female. Rachel on the other hand has spent the last decade pretending that she was BORN black. She even went as far as pretending that black man was her father. Caitlyn is also not pretending that her physical transformation is ‘natural’ whereas Rachel has been pretending that that is her natural hair and real skin colour. She even gave a goddamn lecture on black hair and pointed out which type of black hair hers was.

        And lets be clear on another point Rachel has only just now started to say that she ‘identifies’ as black because she has been CAUGHT in a blatant LIE and she knows that she cannot pass herself off as black now that everyone has seen her biological parents and the pictures of her as a blonde haired blue eyed pale freckle skinned child. Go back and watch the first video where she is confronted and asked point blank if she is African American. Her eyes are saying ‘shiiiitttttt’ and then she literals runs out of the interview. None of this calm, composed “well I don’t like the phrase African American and I ‘identify’ as black” . I also firmly believe that she is using words like transracial and saying things like ‘I identify as black’ and ‘I’ve felt this way since I was a child’ deliberately because she’s smart enough to realize that people will start to equate her with the transgender community, which some have done as we can see on this thread, and that will garner her sympathy. Make no mistake this women knows EXACTLY what she is doing.

    • JLo says:

      I read an article that other day talking about the strong biological component to being transgender, that mental health professionals consider it something a person cannot help. The psychologists quoted basically said being transracial is made up and based in preference (which is fluid and can be influenced).

      • PhenomenalWoman says:

        But isn’t this a relatively new development with respect to transgender people? For the longest time, they were also considered mentally ill. Also, I cringe at studies allegedly showing the “differences” in male and female brains, since this was also supposedly the case many years ago with minority brains (to show they were inferior).

  11. Skins says:

    “Agender” ? He must “identify”

  12. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Would anyone who is agender be willing to explain it more throughly? I tried researching but it seemed to come, in different terms, back to the idea of, “Well boys wear pants and are tough and girls wear skirts and are gentle and I wanted to do both/neither of those things so I realized I was more than what was established”.

    That in turn seems to be entirely based off of what society deems masculine or feminine today without taking into effect the way male/female norms in terms of clothing and behavior have changed wildly over the centuries. It just feels like it reconfirms gender biases by having to explain why a man would want to wear a dress or be attracted to the same sex or be gentle by saying his own gender could not fit those characteristics.

        I feel old too now…what if I want to say ‘there he/she is’ are we suppose to construct sentences with they/they / theirs in replacement of he/she. I am confused and inquiry minds want to know what sex is Tyler (born)

    • PhenomenalWoman says:

      Me, too. I don’t get it …

    • L&Mmommy says:

      You all in danger girls/boys lol…I thought I was the only one who wasn’t cool. Thanks for the support.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Well, finally, my people…..guess I am an oldie too😁

    She might be an attentionwh*re and show-off but I think Miley is just expressing herself, also this is a good cause so props to her.

    • FLORC says:

      It is a good cause. Too bad Miley is knowingly drawing all attention on herself. She’s taken on issues and made sure they get attention. She knows how to do it. Her antics detract from the message. Almost like she’s luring in with a good cause and then bringing attention from that to her.
      She knows the media game. This isn’t ignorance.

    Laverne Fox is quickly becoming my lady crush.

  16. EmmyGrant says:

    Their handbag is interesting.

  17. Jess says:

    Laverne and Ellen both look incredible!

  18. RobN says:

    Liam Hemsworth probably says a little prayer of thanks everyday to be free of the Miley circus. For a guy who seems like he’d rather hang out than go out, she must have been exhausting.

  19. Greek Chic says:

    Laverne looks amazing. If she wore sandals with this dress instead of pumps she would look even more sexier but that’s a detail.
    Also i usually don’t like super blonde hair with dark skin but she makes it work. She is a goddess.

  20. belle de jour says:

    Bedhead: At first, I misread your hed as “agenda date” vs. “agender date.”

    Upon second thought, perhaps they are both appropriate.

  21. rudy says:

    After looking at Miley’s gorgeous gown on the Daily Mail, every other female looked so drab and boring. I love that Miley dressed so loud but somehow made it all look great together. I love her hair – it worked perfectly with the dress and styling. And then the gloves, bringing some red up to her neck.

    Her date was such a lovely idea for the AMfar gala. Where else can you bring an agender date. 99.9% of the world probably never heard the term agender before.

    I think there are as many genders as people.

  22. kat says:

    “She looks gorgeous even though she’s flashing her armpit hair.” Sad that you find armpit hair detracts from gorgeousness. I have it and look lovely 🙂

  23. Madly says:

    I live in Austin and see a lot of things from people who are just exploring themselves. With Miley, all I see is try hard and thirst. I can’t and don’t take her seriously and when she is out of sight I forget about her.

  24. Dani says:

    Can someone ID Tyler’s purse? I for some reason am in love with it.

  25. alicegrey12 says:

    one strange girl

  26. Me too says:

    Agender? Tomorrow, I’m going to wake up and realize I am an dog living in a human’s body and start identifying as canine.

  27. amunet ma'at says:

    I’m a concerned that the conversation truly shifted to how race is a social construct. I’m rolling my eyes, becasue it’s a construct that allows/attributes to several individuals being killed, abused, mistreated, etc. Therefore, this is not a construct but reality. The concept of race goes much deeper and requires more than regurgitation of a college social science course information. For example, many moons ago who we today ID as “Black” people were considered “White” by the Moors, and who we today ID as “White” people were considered “Black.” It was a class system with the terms relating to concious knowledge and the attainment of that knowledge. Therefore, you were “White” if you had lots of knowledge. However, a shift did occur to apply racial identities of black/white to qualitfications of ehniticity classifications. These classifications always existed, but the meaning of the terms changed. That is why this Rachel chick is being slick by stating that she identifies with being black, because African-American is the ethnicity, while black is the classification.

    Equating transgender issues with being black is for me personally offensive and disrespectful. Those are seperate causes/issues. On the superficial level, I will say I am offended because my African-American parents produced an ethnically African-American child, which automatically classified me as black. This is a heritage, history, culture that I inherited genetically upon birth. I believe a part of the issue for others to understand this is because unless you are born into it, it is hard to truly sense what is going on from this perspective.

    That is NOT the same as someone being born as male/female and choosing to have surgery to re-assign their gender and then taking the steps to be acknowledged publically as their re-assigned gender. It is the highest level of white privilege for her to pretend to black for attention, or to become a big fish in small pond. On the most simplistic of levels we have to see how that is fundamentally different.

  28. The Other Katherine says:

    Tyler Ford is presenting as someone who is actually gender-fluid, agender, not committed to binary gender roles, however you want to put it. Miley Cyrus never has, which is why I was incredibly annoyed by the presumptuousness of her “gender-fluid” comment the other day — she has never assumed the very real risks that go with presenting yourself in a non-cisgender way. (No, butching up your style occasionally, in a way that is very recognizable as a common presentation in the cisgender lesbian community, does not count.) Hopefully she can learn something from associating with Tyler and isn’t just using them as a prop for media attention….

  29. Mar says:

    I have to say Miley is rocking the color red! I really like the look on her!

  30. LA Juice says:

    Ellen Barkin always wears that expression that makes you think she’s gonna slug back her bourbon, neat, walk up to the Mic, and start pointing out all the people in the audience who have given her rim jobs.
