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?

    Well, she’s right that Alzheimer’s does suck.

  2. Ankhel says:

    I wonder what’s special and precious to people like Miley and Franco. I hope the answer isn’t nothing, that would be sad.

  3. Pixi says:

    I heard a podcast with Seth Rogen the other day where he mentioned this was his idea and Franco just thought it would be hilarious… Just saying.

  4. THOT says:

    Hope your holidays were awesome Bedhead.

  5. Kliving says:

    I’m not Jewish, but I feel very uncomfortable with this. It doesn’t seem “hilarious” at all, it seems mocking and dismissive.

  6. Nikki says:

    Dumb and dumber. And yes, a bit offensive too.

  7. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Full sisclosure: My father’s side is Jewish, so I’m not technically Jewish. But I was raised in a household that tried to meld both my parents’ religions and family traditions (no Christmas but also no Hanukkah, Yom Kippur but also Pentecost, eat kosher but yay Jesus). So, maybe my opinion doesn’t matter. But, I just can’t drum up the energy to be offended by this. It’s so ridiculous it’s exhausting. And maybe that makes me part of the problem–that I’m so beaten down by everyone trying to out-shock and out-offend everyone that I’m becoming apathetic. And that makes me even more sad.

    • Wren says:

      I’m with you. Instead of being offended I’m more like, “Oh, we’re doing this again? Sure, whatever.”

      I can’t decide if I’m part of the problem or not, because the only thing these people care about is attention and shock value. If you just shrug and go, “Okay, have fun,” they get very little of the former and none of the latter. They would not be doing these things in a vacuum, let’s just say.

  8. Pinky says:

    The joke is that Mikey was invited to “entertain” anyone at any given time. Miley Cyrus entertainment? That’s an oxymoron, minus the oxy. (Unless that’s short for OxyContin, in which case, she’s definitely on board.)

  9. Pivotal Badger says:

    I can’t help it. I love Miley.

    I think she may surprise us all and go on to emulate Angelina Jolie as she matures.

    UN Ambassador Miley?

  10. Katydid20 says:

    I still can’t believe that half of the trashy stuff she wears is couture and from some well known fashion houses……..

  11. Fluff says:

    I know there’s going to be a shitstorm of cultural appropriation accusations, and it’s a valid point. But I’m an orthodox Jew (an Israeli Jew) and I kinda love this. I don’t know, it’s just so insanely rare to ever see anything remotely positive about Judaism in the mainstream media or from non-Jews. I get a kick out of seeing what’s basically a superhero outfit, but Jewish. I’d wear that headband thing.

    Also tons of Jews are secular; it doesn’t make you a bad Jew or non Jewish. Outside of Jerusalem, Israel is one of the most secular countries in the world.

  12. ev says:

    I’m Jewish and I think it’s funny.
    We always get a little excited when someone famous appropriates our culture.
    This is why the Jews are the minority that has survived the longest…

  13. Sarah01 says:

    No class, no talent, just a vapid shock star. No one would be talking about her if she doesn’t do these highly sexualized antics.

  14. Dani says:

    It’s offensive to a Jewish person (like myself) because neither of them are really Jewish, and although Rogen and Franco are Jewish by name, they’re not practicing, so it’s not like Jews poking fun at each other. It’s a bunch of ignorant rich jerks appropriating a religion they’re barely familiar with for ‘likes’ and media attention. Gross.

  15. Josefa says:

    If the people at the event weren’t offended then no one should be. Until Miley decided, obviously, to share everything for the world to see. Ah, Miley. What are we gonna do with you.

  16. JenniferJustice says:

    Miley wore a thong to an event advocating for support for a very serious issue – of course she did. OF COURSE SHE DID! The event CAN’T be about the cause, it’s gotta be about Miley and her continual need for attention. A thong ’cause she’s a feminist man! Got nothing to do with her being addicted to attention, being hypersexual and histrionic. It’s feminism. Barf!

  17. nemo says:

    I’m Jewish and this doesn’t offend me. it made me roll my eyes though.

  18. Dragonlady sakura says:

    While I find Miley’s act distasteful, it’s become so part of her shtick how are people even shocked and offended? She’s not going to be singing about world peace and rainbows, it will mostly be twerking and weed jokes. 😴

  19. FingerBinger says:

    Isn’t James too old for a bar mitzvah?

  20. Marty says:

    Ah how refreshing, Miley showing her trademark cultural sensitivity.

  21. Omnibabe says:

    The most scandalous thing Miley could do these days is put some actual clothes on and behave like a lady. Nothing else could shock any of us anymore.

  22. TuxCat5 says:

    I’m Jewish, and I’m not impressed.

    It’s tacky and cheap. A 4,000-year-old culture deserves higher quality.
