    Her pasties look like oversized EKG pads.

    That’s about the most interesting part of the look.

    • I must agree, although EKG stickers aren’t black. She is just an annoying mosquito, throwing herself fruitlessly against the screened windows of culture.

      • Carrie

        Yeah, aren’t they more band-aid colored? Regardless, that’s was still came to mind and in no way is that a good thing.

      • “She is just an annoying mosquito, throwing herself fruitlessly against the screened windows of culture.

        This is an amazing quote.

      • I wonder what the pts would do if we put them on monitor like that? Would the monitor still accurately read their respirations?

      • Rand Ortega

        Poetry. Made even more fun & prophetic because the subject would never, EVER, understand it.

      • kimmeister

        I am severely allergic to mosquitoes, so that explains a lot!

      • Shug

        hilarious, i’d like to be friends with you. i realize that sounds creepy. 🙁 sorry.

        • Any BK is already a friend. If you click on my photo & go to the disqus page you will find my website. Come say hi!

    • MilaXX

      white is right, black is left and smoke goes over fire

    • muzan-e

      I would’ve been all over this if that had actually been deliberate. Screw this tepid Rolling Stones/Rocky Horror knock-off: leap headfirst into Sadistic Nurse drag and I’ll start paying attention.

      To her, that is. Not the music. Nothing she’s done musically comes close to living up to the image she’s fumbling at.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yes. You articulate my opinion on the look better than I did.

        And she does well in pop-country-pop style and ought to be doing something in that vein or which twists that genre sideways, rather than the poorly done wannabe crap she’s been doing. I feel a little sorry for her, at her age most of us wanted to be just like somebody else, not realizing the power of playing to one’s own strengths.

      • kfarrel3

        What makes me sad is that there’s a video of her on YouTube doing a completely stripped down version of “Jolene,” and it will knock your socks off. Even my dad, who’s a die-hard Dolly Parton fan, was really impressed. She can SING, so why all this superfluous crap?

        • Lily-Rygh

          I wonder the same thing. Pop tarts like Britney need(ed) to do this desperate, attention-seeking stuff, because she couldn’t sing her way out of a paper bag without being produced and auto-tuned to within an inch of her life. Miley COULD make a great career for herself as a singer, because she CAN actually sing. What a waste of talent.

          She just looks like a douche.

          • formerlyAnon

            It is possible she will grow out of this phase. That’s my hope.

        • tetisheri

          She wants to knock the memories of Hannah Montana out of everyone’s heads. What better way than to dress like a hooker from a cheesy scifi movie?

    • YoungSally

      But why do the pasties have to look anatomically correct?

  • Leigh Montano

    I don’t care about Miley, I just wish she’d put her tongue back in her mouth. The corners of her mouth must be super chapped by now.

    • MaryAtRealityTea

      I know – I just keep thinking CANKER SORE everytime I see her. I hope she carries Abreva in her purse.

      • Maryanne525

        I love that someone down voted you for this. HMMPH. She does NOT have a canker sore!

    • It’s baffling to think of how she got the idea to start using her tongue. I know it’s silly to try to climb into a crazy person’s head, but here goes, anyway:

      “I’m gonna start posing with my tongue out.” Honestly, I’m a fairly creative person, and I can’t come up with one clever or humorous bit of self-talk she might have come up with about her damn tongue. Yuck; it’s gross. Put it away.

  • Dear Not Remotely Shocking Miley,



    • alyce1213

      The wink kills me, too.

      • majorbedhead

        At this point, it’s like a tic for her. She does it ALL. THE. TIME.

        • Guest

          Kind of like a visual Tourrette Syndrome?

        • mila_8

          At least her tongue looks brushed this time…the plaquey white tongue makes me want to grab whatever ridiculous faux fur is on her and scrub that thing down. Gross.

        • Aurumgirl

          She and Sarah Palin.

      • mshesterp

        The wink and the tongue — really her whole head in those shots combined with the hair and the overdone eyes– make her look like a cartoon character.

        • Rhonda Shore

          You’re absolutely correct! She looks like a toon.

        • Yuju Ti

          I think that’s what she is going for. She wants us to think she is a cartoon character.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I know. It’s like if her fans wanted a quirky cartoon sticker of her to slap across their books or such, it would be a cartoon drawing of her head with the wink and the tongue.

    • kate40

      It makes me want to smack her under her chin. Oops, did I say that out loud?

    • Tarjay

      Dear Miley Cyrus’s tongue: Stop trying to make “Fetch” happen.

    • Pam Measures Thomasson

      So agree it looks stupid

    • mixedupfiles

      I can’t help thinking that she herself can’t wait until she can put it away. She was apparently shamed enough by the criticism of the way her tongue looked that she’s not going to give us any more than a side view, but like a teen, she can’t be seen to give in.

    • harlowish

      Truly. She could go out naked for all I care but for some reason the tongue sends me into paroxysms of rage.

      • Monica

        OMG, my thoughts exactly! I actually kind of like this outfit, especially the black pasties and the shoes, but ENOUGH WITH THE TONGUE ALREADY.

  • anyalama

    I can’t even look at her face when she does that thing with her tongue. The pangs of embarrassment, they burn!

  • alyce1213

    I have to shower right now. And CLEANSE MY EYEBALLS!
    Uncles, I do believe you were too generous with your words on this thing here. The less said, the better.

  • sk8tfan

    Gurl’s keeping it classy. She’s one electric shaver away from a full on defcon 4 level meltdown. I thought she and Liam were too immature to get married to begin with, and she’s confirming that. He’s had a lucky escape. The pity is, even though I’m not a fan of her music, I think she has some genuine talent, and she’s getting in her own way with these antics.

    • Introspective

      “getting in her own way” would be the best descriptor for this madness above.

    • nowlo

      She’s set herself up beautifully for a career turnaround/comeback in about 5 years. She would generate a huge amount of goodwill if she’d put away the schtick and put out one decent album (preferably country, since that’s seems to be more in her wheelhouse than the hip-hop flavored whatever she’s doing now).

      • largishbearishAtlish

        I was about to click ‘agree’ and then realized ‘oh wait, that means I would actually have to listen to her music”, something I have not actually done….unless it was on the radio and I had no idea who it was….

  • Introspective

    she cant believe this shit is somehow sexy or clever, does she? cause we sure don’t.

  • regina arthur

    Oh lawd!! Somebody please help this chile. SMH

  • valerie747

    She needs *winking* pasties and a fuzzy red fabric tongue thrusting from her bikini bottom. Then, I’d sit up.

    • majorbedhead

      God, don’t give her any ideas.

      • valerie747

        Apparently, she’s shooting for *cartoon whore* and is just missing the proper embellishments.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      You just described her VMA onesie to a t.

  • SneakyKitty

    Actually, that’s just her face. It’s stuck like that now.

    Seriously though, put it away, child. It’s just sad and vulgar, and not in an ~*edgy*~ way.

  • kat89

    The girl is a centerfold waiting to happen. I give her a year until she’s in Playboy.

    • I agree.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Iman is going to be in Playboy next month.

      • demidaemon

        That is going to be one fabulous centerfold.

    • Rand Ortega

      I’m betting Hustler. Playboy’s a bit too above her station. There’s articles. By journalists.

    • Heather

      Playboy is actually more tasteful than what I see here.

  • valerie747

    Can someone fill me in about those shoes? Are those chains? Might they move about and clank when she walks? I sincerely hope they have batteries and light up like little twinkle stars! That would be cool.

  • thecitysleeps

    I agree. I’m so over everyone criticizing her for showing some tits and ass. Popstars have been doing it for ever. The thing worth criticizing her for is that she’s doing it so badly. I mean Gaga is naked all the time but at least some times she wears interesting fashion while doing it.

    Plus Gaga never lets her schtick overthrow her music/art/performance, I feel. On the other hand, Miley is letting her stupid wink/tongue override everything else. And I feel sad because I really like her and I think Wrecking Ball is beautiful. #asemifanrant

    • I think the fact that Miley has an interesting voice, and some actual talent, but instead chooses to be known for her pseudo sexual antics, is what irritates me the most.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. I try to give her a pass because not many of us understood playing to our strengths at her age – didn’t we mostly want to be more like somebody else? But it’s getting harder and harder.

    • I actually listened to Wrecking Ball. Not bad at all. The silly outfits don’t bug me as much as that tongue.

      • potus

        It took five people to write wrecking ball. None of which was Cyrus. She’s just meat puppet for other people. The increasingly desperate antics just underscore the fact that there just ain’t a lot of “there” there.

        • demidaemon

          That’s kind of the way the industry works now. Generally, songs are written by groups of songwriters, with the performer included in that group. Look at any writing credits and you’ll see this more often than not.

          Also, I could like “Wrecking Ball,” if she hadn’t stupidly let Terry Richardson get his hands all over the video and then started threatening us with an uncut version.

          • potus

            Actually, that’s the way the music industry always worked back in the 40’ and 50’s. Tin Pan Alley and all that. Singers with exceptional voices were handed material written by others, in some cases, several others. Then the 60’s came along and the rise of the songwriting performer. It was major step forward in creativity. Cyrus is a devolvement from that, a step backwards not forward. Remove the tongue and twerking and you have someone who is no fundamentally different a performer than Patsy Clines, Toni Ardens, Connie Francis, etc — Only Cyrus lacks the exceptional voice, hence the need for the twerking and her other carefully calculated “naughty” antics to cover for that.

  • I love you guys. That is all.

  • Danielle


  • She’s getting lots of attention, but she is also in the trap of having to do something more outrageous to attract more attention…

    • DTLAFamilies

      In the meantime she’s making a pile of money, which is why not only are we going to get more of this shit from her, we’re going to get it from the next tootsie pop who succeeds her.

  • lehen

    the tongue. yeasty, crusty, canker sore ridden disgustingness.

  • snarkykitten

    Someone needs to tell her that shit ain’t shocking anymore. It’s boring. Show up in a ball gown and Cruella DeVille inspired stole and then she’ll get some attention

  • d4divine

    TLo, you took the quotes right outta my mouth!!

  • flamingoNW


  • d4divine


  • MandyM

    What is sad is that if she stood up there and just sang in a dress and a face that didn’t make people sick to their stomachs, she would illicit the actual response she is craving; to be taken seriously. How can anyone take her seriously as an artist when she acts like this? This is a petulant child, not a serious recording artist. Lady G and Madonna she’s not!

    • Pennymac


    • I think she has as much potential as the others. We shall see. The amount of attention that Madonna and Lady G NEED wears me out. I remember yelling very loudly on the school playground when I was seven years old because my favorite teacher had yard duty and I wanted her to see me doing a trick on the bars. When she didn’t look, I got louder and louder. I knew right away that I had embarrassed myself. These ladies are similar in what they go through for attention and approval. There’s a desperation and self-centeredness that makes me uncomfortable when entertainers want freedom of expression, when it’s freedom grab all the attention you can get. When all eyes are on YOU, there isn’t much room for anyone else.

      At some point in the seventies I saw Linda Ronstadt in concert (with the Eagles and Jackson Brown on the bill). I remember how pure she was, standing there singing like an angel, wearing a longish printed dress, perhaps like a forties style, cut on the bias. She just sang without shaking her ass. (I love dancing of every kind; I’m just making a point.)

      I think that earning accolades through your talent is more honest. At least that’s what I like to see and what I prefer.

      Sorry to get so philosophical. Miley’s bad taste doesn’t deserve much thought. I guess I can’t help but ask the age old question, WTF?

      • demidaemon

        I would agree with you on all of this, with a single exception. Gaga and Madge a) cover themselves up at least 70 % of the time b) can actually dance as well as sing to some degree and c) give us a break from their schtick now and again. For the last year and a half, it’s been Miley this or that and upping how little clothing she can wear while actually wearing clothes.

        ETA: I guess there are multiple exceptions here. Whoops.

        • It is kinda tough to make general statements here without offending someone. Maybe I should be more careful. I have such appreciation for clean talent without gimmicks, yet, I love self-expression. For instance, Gwen Stefani has a great style that I find endearing. There’s no desperation or antics in her self-expression even though it can be daring. She isn’t looking for new ways to pull her dress over her head or create a wardrobe malfunction. Madonna has done many things to shock people. That wears me out. Same with Gaga and now Miley.

          I keep an open mind though. Supposedly Madonna had received a dance scholarship. I doubt it was much. Her early dancing was bad. She watched her feet. Look at Lucky Star. She doesn’t keep a beat. Her voice isn’t great. Her genius is like that of Thomas Edison. She has kept rising to the occasion again and again. She has the drive to come up with new stuff.

          I guess the only way we can really judge or compare Miley is over time.

          • demidaemon

            I just wanted to let you know I wasn’t offended at all. I like this sort of conversation. The fact that we can make something quasi-intellectual out of the mess that is Miley Cyrus is an amazing feat that should be celebrated.

      • Scoobydrew

        Linda Ronstadt’s What’s New is the first time I bought an album for my Mom, something I still do… it makes me sad that she’s lost the ability to sing to Parkinson’s. My favorite will always be Stevie Nicks. I think that they both pushed the envelope with their sexuality for the time… and I don’t mind a little pushing, but when you rip open the letter and stomp on it .. it just gives me a headache.

        Maybe I’m just old.

  • lobsterlen

    Does anyone recall the outrage over the Vanity Fair photos? Those were such innocent and sweet times. We, meaning Western Civilization, has spent far too much time and energy being outraged over the former Hannah Montona.

  • Jennifer Karin

    and her transformation to an anime character is now complete.

    • demidaemon

      Even anime characters whose entire character development is “loose woman” wear more clothes than this. I also respect them a hell of a lot more and THEY ARE FICTIONAL.

  • Montavilla

    My question is: When did The Blonds start making a RTW line for Target?

  • Agador Spartacus

    “You have no style or sense of fashion.”
    “I think that depends on…”
    “No, no, that wasn’t a question.”

  • Inspector_Gidget

    Why is she constantly making the “stroke face?” Eye closed, face screwed up, tongue out. Such a weird way to “brand” herself. Does she not know how to pose or something? Guess either smiling or being natural are too passe.

    • I wonder what she thinks when she sees pictures of herself with the tongue or the wink. Blah!

    • Glam Dixie

      We pulled a dead calf that had just the head out a few days ago and it had that exact expression on it’s face. Yeah, it’s gross, but also true story.

      • alyce1213

        tmi – eeuww, but funny

  • Miss WKS

    Hey, at least she’s not flashing that inane peace sign….

    • Haha. What I call the backwards peace sign. When did somebody turn the peace sign around? That’s what I want to know.

    • Scoobydrew

      or shooting the bird

  • ms_smartiepants

    That is quite simply the ugliest assemblage of “apparel” I’ve ever seen. No wait, let me rephrase that: I have never before seen an outfit so HORRIFYINGLY, EYE-SEARINGLY HIDEOUS.

  • MilaXX

    she looks stupid

    • ashtangajunkie

      That is my problem with Miley’s clothes – nothing more than the fact that she looks totally stupid and lacks style.

  • Judy_J

    I find myself wishing she’d just show up naked and be done with it. Oh, wait….she already has. Move along, folks. Nothing more to see here.

    • Kristin McNamara

      I, for one, was quite surprised that when she turned around, the view from the back wasn’t a thong! That shows exceptional strength on her part.

  • RedRaven617

    Thank you Uncles. Perfectly stated.

  • Never trust a person who winks. That has always been my motto. A wink with the tongue. Not much is phonier. There is no message in this, period.

    Or her message is: Look at me, everyone. I have nothing smart to say or do, but please look anyway.

    I had thought she was was enjoying herself as a sexual being with a nice body, and she was displaying some exhibitionism. I could get past that to an extent.

    Now I think she is having a meltdown. I can’t believe it has come to this, but her tongue sticking out is uglier than a dress made of meat. What people will do for attention is a cryin’ shame.

    • demidaemon

      I’m not sure is this a meltdown. It seems a carefully calculated act of publicity to me. A really stupid carefulluy calculated act but planned nonetheless, to finally erase the last vestiges of Hannah Montana from everyone’s mind.

  • River


  • frannyprof

    PREACH, gay uncles!!!! Better than a church sermon.

  • giddypony

    Like the shoes.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Its messy for sure but this is what she wore to perform in so as far as stage wear goes (considering Gaga has been wearing seashell pasties and a thong and Bey’s been wearing a sequined jumpsuit adorned in the way as to make her look naked nipples and all) its actually pretty tame.

    • anyalama

      Except that this is the dollar store version of those other examples. Despite the fact that she clearly has the means ($$) to do better. Making the cheap look expensive is an admirable feat. Making the expensive look cheap is just lazy.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        She has said “It takes a lot of money to look this cheap.” So she’s, at the very least, self aware.

        • PastryGoddess

          That was Dolly Parton who said that. and Miley ain’t Dolly

          • Erica_Vuitton

            Perhaps Dolly said it first but she has said it as well.

          • formerlyAnon

            Dolly is, actually, her godmother (well, if all the usual print sources can be believed, it’s not like I’m a family friend). And I keep hoping she’ll drift in that direction, she sings country pop quite well.

          • PastryGoddess


            That’s quite interesting. Maybe she could take some tips on how to use one’s assets to her advantage, without going overboard

  • poketom

    those Chanel boots though… at least she did something right.

  • Cheryl

    I like the footwear. I say footwear, because I’m not sure whether they are boots, shoes, a sandal hybrid.

  • nannypoo

    She really has a great little body. She should try covering it with something attractive.

  • What woman doesn’t want to make her nipples and aerolas look huge and prominent? Oh wait, none.

  • lareveuse73

    Dear Miley: Aeon Flux did it better, and you’re not the “white hat” version. And put on some pants.

  • Colin

    As a teenage gay male I have to say I sort of love this….if I saw a girl wearing this at a banger, I would dance my ass off with her. Just try to remember the target audience here, tasteless teenage party culture. I occasionally go to philly EDM warehouse parties, clubs, etc, and they’re filled with this kind of clothing; overtly sexual, big volumes, loads of fun, and plenty of tasteless style choices absent the approval of fashionable gay uncles. Obviously, it’s not something a mature style-based community is inclined to like, and the drawn out reiteration that she looks stupid in the context of pictures on the style blog of two, decades older, gay men seems a little stale to me because of how obviously obvious that fact is. Yes we know she looks stupid. But points for highlighting her reductive Rihanna habits. That’s been consistently bugging me about her brand’s marketing strategy

    • “the drawn out reiteration that she looks stupid in the context of pictures on the style blog of two, decades older, gay men seems a little stale to me”

      But a teenager complaining about the olds being boring is the HEIGHT of originality. Come on now, kid. We’re all playing our parts; you included.

      • Colin

        Not throwing shade, and I’m not saying your age makes you boring! I wouldn’t regularly visit your blog if that were true. I said reiterating the same thing about Miley on multiple different blog posts is boring. The schtick about age was just explaining that Miley’s image can’t really be digested in any mature manner where taste is involved, and that is what you, as veteran style critics, are inclined to do, but that doesn’t negate this outfit’s appeal as a tasteless party performance piece to the troves of teenagers who her image is intended to appeal to.

        • “Miley’s image can’t really be digested in any mature manner where taste is involved, and that is what you, as veteran style critics, are inclined to do, but that doesn’t negate this outfit’s appeal as a tasteless party performance piece to the troves of teenagers who her image is intended to appeal to.”

          This is a very articulate way of saying “You’re old and you don’t get it.” Which is fine; that’s entirely your right and as we said, you’re playing your role as much as we are.

          But saying this is kind of meaningless. The fact of the matter is, this is a celebrity, pop culture and fashion blog. We’re going to write about Miley Cyrus. We’re going to write about her from our perspective. You coming along and saying “You’re old and you don’t get it,” is as easy as us waving away your criticisms with “You’re young and you form intense emotional bonds with pop culture figures that will embarrass you later in life when you realize what a factory pop culture is and how insincere the vast majority of its participants are.”

          I appreciate the take from a teenager; I really do. But I don’t for a second believe it’s somehow the more correct take on the matter. It’s just one version; as is our take.

          And let’s face it, this critique of yours is arbitrary. You’re complaining that we already said once before that Miley looks stupid and … what? We’re not supposed to say that again, even though she still looks stupid to us? That’s not really how it works. We do the same thing with all our recurring pop culture figures. Lea Michele gets an “Of course,” almost every time, Cate Blanchett is worshipped, Jennifer Aniston dresses the same for decades, etc. It’s schtick. We do this every day. That you have a problem with us doing it to this person – and the only other time you complained to us is when we did the same thing to Lady Gaga – tells us that this is less about critiquing our skills as fashion commenters and more about telling us to leave your favorite pop stars alone. And to be honest, it surprises us, because the entire gist of this post is to shrug our shoulders and say that it’s not worth getting worked up over her antics.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      It is one thing to say “Its OK if you don’t like/understand this look because you’re not her target audience.” It is a different thing all together to bash the authors of this site. Do NOT come here with that shit.

    • LadyLuck777

      Good grief. You make TLo sound like they are going to go flying off in a house with balloons and a boy scout. I’d give them some credit for knowing what they are talking about, as evidenced by their success and popularity.

      No one is criticizing her; we are criticizing her choices. I’m less outraged by the fact that she is making these choices and more saddened that she feels like she needs to. This just doesn’t feel genuine at all.

      • demidaemon

        I, for one, would watch a version of Up with TLo standing in for the elderly man and dogs replaced with cats. Also, everyone here knows their crap. Word et al to everyone but the original poster.

  • marlie

    I rolled my eyes so hard that I think I gave myself a headache. All she’s doing is TRYING to make people outraged. Whatevs.

  • Yeah well she’s not engaged to a Hemsworth any more so neener neener Miley.

  • Rroxy


    • guest2visits

      … I don’t think so.. but it may very well be she’s trying to send out that xtc/club vibe. She’s sweaty faced all the time, always dressed in her touch me rags and maybe that’s even the reason for her incredibly special tongue too. It feels like this is her way of connecting with a certain young demographic. Which doesn’t exactly make me more of a Miley fan.
      I like her hair, I like how she’s doing her make-up these days and she can be really cute and even fashionable when she wants. I liked her new Wrecking Ball song – which she promptly crudied up with her video. That kind of sums up the Miley experience for me; she has something going for her but does her best to undermine it with just the stupidest things, including this outfit. Is it personal taste.. or is it packaging…who cares.

      • demidaemon

        That video was a joint effort. Guess who her partner in crime was? He’s another unfavorite of the bitter kittens with a tendency towards sleaze and oversexualized photo shoots. You get three guesses.

        • guest2visits

          Yah but I don’t think anyone had to persuade Miley or direct her to do anything. This is her being her; this looks like her taste level, to me. But you’re right – it was a joint effort. Perhaps it’s the perfect match where crude meets lewd for her and this director. Like I think it’s just as possible for her to be a Molly user as not; she could be a poser trying to appeal to a group, or she could be drug user who’e exploiting her recreational pass time for the same kind of attention/appeal. But it doesn’t matter – none of it is a compliment to her character.

  • susan6

    Well, as much as I hate to admit it, her antics have made me curious about the whole wink and tongue thing. Is this some sort of nod to a subculture? A cartoon? A tattoo? She’s clearly trying to create a brand, but what is it referring to? (Granted I can’t be bothered to do an internet search or listen to her music, but she has got me wondering. So….good for her?)

  • TerryMH

    Her parents must be so proud.

    • alyce1213

      The sad thing is, they are.

        Which is a real indictment of the depths to which popular American culture has sunk.

    Siouxsie Sioux could get away with this outfit. And Miley Cyrus, you ain’t a Siouxsie Sioux.

    • sisterb67

      Grace Jones could pull this off too. And it’s likely that Grace Jones would literally pull this off of MIley, and then eat her with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

      • alyce1213

        Grace Jones did all this — and a lot more — with artistry. This little clown just looks vulgar,

        • sisterb67

          Indeed. Even stuff that skewed gaudy still looked fabulous on Grace. (As an aside, I went to a show Grace Jones did many years ago, and about 2/3rds of the way through I turned to a friend and said “Uh, when exactly did she take off her clothes?” – she had stripped down to nothing but a thong and high heels, yet not of us had noticed her disrobing because we were so mesmerized by her!)

  • Michelle Wilson

    I’m hoping they figure out she has schizophrenia before she sets herself on fire at this point.

  • Rrroza

    “…Nothing says “I have no persona of my own” than freezing your face into nothing more than a logo…” is perfect. With the winking and chops-licking she could represent some fast food joint. It’d be easy to draw a cartoon version of her…she does already resemble Betty and Veronica.

    • alyce1213

      Betty and Veronica have more going for them in the persona department than this girl.

  • Unlike many commenters, I don’t think this is a drug-fueled meltdown. I think that dozens of music executives got together and carefully cultivated the new “Super Skanky Miley” persona, right down to exactly what side of her mouth her tongue should stick out of. Yep, I believe that very well paid suits came up with a way to make this attractive young woman look as ridiculous as possible in their quest to sell a gadzillion copies of her new album. And it’s working! That’s the saddest part of all!

    • formerlyAnon

      I’m not convinced it was quite that planned, but I think she has probably been given plenty of encouragement by those who mostly think “it’s popular now, she’s certainly got the body for it, we’ll all make money.” She’s following too closely a path that has been [financially] successful for others, ignoring that that path is probably not the one that plays best to her strengths.

    • LadyLuck777

      I first read this as “Super Spanky Miley.” Spank-me Barbie, indeed.

      • BWAHAHA!! I like your reading better than what I wrote. Back in the day, that Hannah Montana merchandise sold like crazy…maybe they can sell Super Spanky Miley dolls to a new generation.

  • This is stupid, but her body is sick

  • formerlyAnon

    Oh girl. I can accept without liking that you’re going through a skanky phase in your dress. And if you have to wear a “dress” which shows your pasties and undies, I much prefer this way – brash rather than with some sheer drapery and slashings up to here and down to there. I even like the fuzzy sleeves, they give a nod to once-shocking glam looks gone by.

    But put the tongue away. Please. You grew up in the public eye. You know these photos are never going to die.

      Oh, now that you mention it, I get it! …. indeed! This is a different kind of *peep* show

  • cocohall

    Someone has been to the dollar store and spent about $4.99. Then gone home and heated up the glue gun. I was so hoping there would be a post on this look. It isn’t vulgar or sexy. We have wandered into “tin foil hat” territory. I saw a woman at the grocery store this morning in a straw top hat embellished with pipe-cleaner flowers. Miley is her Vegas cousin. I will say that as a crowd management strategy, she is very clever. When you see bat-shit crazy coming at you, most sane people will back the f*ck up to let it pass. Miley must be clearing space in a 20 foot radius.

  • Dagney

    Love her. Love all this. She looks happy and is clearly having a good time getting under everyone’s skin every few seconds. Miley is owning it, and laughing all the way to the bank too.

    • Trickytrisha

      Really? I suppose someone has to love her. Just don’t expect many of us BKs to agree.

  • OrigamiRose

    This was the last image I needed to see before “Downton Abbey” starts in a few. Blech :/

  • Corsetmaker

    She’s just so not rock and roll and you need to be to stick your fingers up and pull this off. Instead she’s a bright-eyed, perky, fresh faced, toothy, shiny little thing who looks like she’s dancing around in her mum’s shoes and lipstick with some pretend attitude.

  • Little_Olive

    I really don’t care. I think we are giving her exactly what she wants by crying “Gawd, stop” and the like. I don’t find it THAT shocking (I mean, we had it coming, and who is shocked by some nakedness anymore? we see t all the time) and I don’t think it compares to Britney, in the sense that I don’t see a real meltdown here; just more attention-whoring (ergo, the stupìd tongue).

    I gotta admit though, she sure has figured out how to grow out that pixie.

  • NMMagpie

    This is nothing more than an old old old trick in entertainment. If the show is not working, throw as many costumes and props at it as you can and hopefully that will distract the audience. It’s nothing new; I see it all the time.

    The bottom line is that Miley has very little in the way of the talent she actually wants. This is also a very popular way of being in the world of celebrity and entertainment. Miley is only OK as a singer with exceedingly minimal acting skills, the limit of which are both on painful display in the ‘Wrecking Ball’ video. Where the best of her talent lies is in her songwriting as you will soon see on YouTube as several better singers will post their covers of ‘Wrecking Ball’ and any other Miley-tunes.

    However, that is not glamorous enough a talent for the attention-seeking. If my daughter (who is this age) did this kind of stuff, I would be incredibly disappointed and say a lot of somethings about it. It’s awful to be making history for all the wrong reasons while your team of sycophants tell you the complete opposite. And that is where she or anyone gets into real trouble: by believing their own press.

    Until Miley learns that, she will continue to conduct this freak show to its miserable end.

  • GreenTurtle

    Furry sleeves on a beach cover-up? That’s just silly. 😉

    I covet those boots, though. I’d wear that shit to the grocery.

      I flipping love the boots. Maybe all hope is not lost?

  • Jacquelyn

    Ugh. I have no interest in her anymore.

  • potus

    I’m not sure i understand the point of trying to stick her tongue up her nose in just about every single freaking photoshoot. Is she trying to get at that booger without using her finger? She just kind of looks like she’s in the middle of an unfortunate seizure and someone took a picture. Is it some sort of Tardive Dyskinesia thing?

  • Rand Ortega


  • Rebecca Jay

    Whatever she uses to clean her teeth, she needs to use on that gray-brown thrushy tongue.
    I do like the footwear and fur sleeves.

    Nope, you don’t “look to pop stars for meaning” – you just feel the need
    to write a blog post about what they’re wearing and blast them, again.
    If you really had nothing to say about this, it wouldn’t be an article.
    If you really don’t want to hear from Miley, you’re in the wrong line of
    work. And if you want to direct a finger at someone “destroying
    Western Civilization,” that would be the media, aka your job – which is
    to talk about what celebrities are doing, put them on blast on their
    pedestals, put them on blast on their downturns, and when they crack
    from the pressure, put them on blast as they tumble into oblivion.
    people are actual human beings, and you get your paycheck out of
    watching them burn and making it news. Shut. The fuck. Up.

    • Oh. My. GOD.

      Oh, get down off the cross, someone needs the wood.

    • conniemd

      There is a difference between bloggers and the entertainment media. TLo don’t take the pictures and put them out there. There’s also difference between the attention of “OMG that’s indecent and faux outrage over the alleged sexiness” and the criticism offered by TLo and those who comment on their blogs that point out that she’s not even good at being Madonna or Cher or even Rhianna, hence the Whianna Montana name. They are critically mocking her for being incompetent at what she is trying to do. I don’t think she wants mocking, you are a pretender commentary she gets here.

      • demidaemon

        I think this calls to one of the truest phrases uttered when navigating the internet: “Don’t feed the trolls.” Also, TLo said it best.

  • Tortillapete

  • tami t.

    Okay, two things. One, I’m seeing a surprised owl. The eyes seem obvious. And the straps are the little furrow between the owl’s eyes. Then the feathered wings and the mouth. No?

    Second, and I’m sure I’ll regret asking this, but why are her breasts so… white? Tan lines? Does she put her top on to tan and then take it off to go out in public? A little makeup would have gone amiss? Does your brain ever latch on to one inane little detail in a whole mess of ridiculous and then refuse to let it go? Mine does.

    • alinana

      OMG…now I can’t unsee the lack of tan bits…errrr…

  • billyoblivion

    Since at least Madonna you, the entertainment press, have been rewarding exactly this sort of behavior. What about Ms. Cyrus exactly breaks the arc established by Madonna, Paris Hilton, the chick with the beef dress who’s name I can’t bother to recall and all the other marginally talented strumpets you and the various industry PR campaigns have put in front of us?

    • Where are these adorable people who keep calling us “the entertainment press” come from? What fevered fanboard sent you all over here?

      Newsflash: We’re not “the entertainment press.” We don’t “put” these people “in front” of you. You seem to have absolutely no idea how the world of entertainment works and frankly, I have no obligation to explain it to you but it is LAUGHABLE to put any of these people at our feet.

      And once again, reading comprehension would be nice, since the ENTIRE POINT of the above post is that there really isn’t much difference between Miley’s antics and Madonna’s, or Britney’s or a whole bunch of other young female pop stars.

  • superemang

    wow. she must’ve been really devastated by the breakup. This has desperate written all over it. Girl, get yourself a shrink.

  • pop_top

    LMAO. She is trying ever so hard.

  • She’s making a mockery of herself.

  • i have been behind “new miley” so far, at least from a fashion perspective. but this is indeed just silly.

    i will say though: not really that much more silly than that k-stew ass-dress that topped the TLo best of list a while ago.

  • putacorkinit

    I like a young semi-naked nubile making salacious faces as much as the next man but she is curiously sexless and deflating.

    • shelbywoo

      because it’s NOT salacious. If you cropped the photo so you just saw her face no one would think anything sexual of it. She looks like any teenager ever in a photo booth. She just happens to have no clothes on.

      • putacorkinit

        She’s wearing black nipple tweakers for god’s sake!

  • CT14

    Forgetting for a moment how desperately boring this look is, she just doesn’t have the attitude to carry it off. She looks so sweet and All-American. She looks like a kewpie doll.

    Find something I your wheelhouse, Miley, and stop trying to make fetch happen. It’s not going to happen.

  • Saturnine

    We need a “hide” button on the home page; this thumbnail can’t get pushed down fast enough. Maybe we can just enlarge the photo of Christina Hendricks. . .

    I agree 100%. In general I wish that everyone would stop talking about her all together. Probably too much to hope for, though.

  • SophiaPehawkins

    Who makes that? I want to get one for my grandmother,

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    YES! To your comments. She is just big gigantic NO

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    I have to agree, it’s the stupid winking and tongue wag that are clearly now her trademark that annoy me more than the pasties and such.

  • Diego!

    DRUGS ARE BAD!!! Remember that Miley! You look like trash. Not even Madonna, who set the whore-look on the red carpet, ever looked as bad as you do right now. Girl, follow Lindsay steps and get into rehab… and see a shrink too. Bye

  • tetisheri

    I mean, I get the whole I have to wear almost no clothes so that I can set myself apart from my Disney child star career thing, but why in the name of little green fishies does she have to continually stick out her tongue?

    • Supposed to be sexy, I guess.

      Failing, really…

  • To be honest the thing that is really getting me about this is she’s doing it badly. All those necklaces need to go and leave a clean line under all the rest of the phooferaw.

  • rage_on_the_page

  • MarissaLG

    For the love of all that is holy, please STOP doing that stupid tongue thing.

  • HobbitGirl

    A white fishnet dress with fake-fur sleeves, covering black nipple pasties and a weird thong thingy. It doesn’t sound like it should be a boring ensemble, yet “YAWN” is my only response to this. It’s so…expected.

    My favorite thing is how bored the other people in the photos look. They can’t even be bothered to give her A Look.

  • BrooklynBomber

    What is wrong with this person? Who thinks this is edgy or cool or racy or anything positive? She needs a whole series of interventions.

    It’s not so much the dress, it’s the dress combined with that wide-eyed Disney freeze-frame ‘look’ she’s going for.

  • Judih1

    Tragic, sad, embarrassing. What is the world coming to when people like her are front page news?

  • Joanna

    This begs one question: Is she really completely and utterly oblivious to the fact that popular opinion is that her tongue thing looks stupid?

    • bellafigura1

      Well, seriously! Does she not have one friend who could applaud everything but say, ever-so-gently, you might want to rethink the tongue thing?

      • Aerialgreen

        I think it’s rather obvious that her EVIL publicist’s goal is to make a public recognizable trademark image/logo from that face she puts for every picture she poses these days… but IMO it kinda seems like a “safe place” or a “character” she goes into to avoid any feelings of shame or pain for what she has been reduced to do to get money, not unlike some prostitutes do.

      • demidaemon

        What’s sad is that her best friend, Kelly Osbourne, said it on cable television. Granted, it was E!, but still. Maybe not gently, either, but I think we are well beyond that point.

        • bellafigura1

          Once upon a time, or in the non-celebrity universe, this is what mothers were for!!

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I love when you guys get into high dudgeon, because you nail the mark every time. I have seen urban Detroit working girls wear that kind of outfit with more style and grace than Miss Miley. It’s pathetic.

  • Credit where it’s due – and this is the *only* place it’s due in this case – the outfit might be stupid and attention-whoring, but her body looks great. If only she could find a remotely classy way to show it off.

    • yes. kesha could take a lesson from that. nothing like wearing see-through with a body that no one wants to see.

  • Cautia

    She reminds me of Lea Michele in that the harder she tries to push herself away from a certain image, the more she just reinforces it. Whereas she seems to want us to look at her and think of anything but her Disney Channel roots, I find it impossible to not think of her as a Disney Channel girl when she’s trying so hard to get away from it.
    It’s sad because at first I thought she was doing pretty well in transitioning into her adulthood…and then came this dramatic shift and now she’s just pathetic.

    • these girls could all take a lesson from annette funicello. class act, there.

  • jjtxgrrl

    She is so tacky. Yuck.

    Don’t compare her to Madonna. At least Madonna did it with style.

  • geez, put your tongue back in your mouth. that’s just gross.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    How funny that she is trying so hard to distance herself from Disney and she ends up looking like a cartoon character.

  • Can you say ‘useless git’ – I know you can (with mega apologies to the always divine Mr. Rogers).

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I made a comment earlier about her looking like a cartoon character — something from the X-rated stuff in the 70s — but it seems to have disappeared and I’ve sort of changed my mind, anyway. Now I think, this is a girl who hates herself and wants to make everyone else hate her, too. Mission accomplished, Destiny/Miley/Hannah/Chloe. Severe identity crisis.

  • spooki C

    She looks like an idiot. Who ever made this outfit needs to be sent of to Siberia because it is beyond ugly. I just wish she would pull it back a bit, you can be edgy with out looking like a hideous fool.

  • Thundar99

    She’s really going for that Toon look isn’t she? When are her and the Bieber gonna get together already. The two of them as a couple would just be the gift that keeps on giving.

    A therapist could look into her exhibitionist tendencies for her. Clearly the girl is just DYING to walk around naked.

  • GTrain

    She’s too young to be so desperate. I am sick to DEATH of that f-ing tongue!

  • demidaemon

    Word. Also, I will repeat my comment that I posted on your Facebook feed: I can’t.

    Also, is it just me, or does this just get worse withe every picture? Not just the outfit, but her facial expressions as well.
