Anyone who follows fashion knows that Vogue’s Anna Wintour is not someone you want to mess with. She doesn’t take kindly to scandal, and Miley Cyrus is reportedly finding that out the hard way this week after Wintour killed her cover for the December issue following the twerk-seen-round-the-world.
According to The Daily Mail, Wintour was a champion for Cyrus as a new fashion muse but was completely disgusted by her VMAs performance with Robin Thicke and decided to go with someone else for the December cover, even though Cyrus reportedly already shot the photos.
“Anna found the whole thing distasteful,” a source said. “She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.”
The internet was abuzz after the MTV awards show, where Cyrus got raunchy onstage with Thicke during a rendition of his hit “Blurred Lines”. Cyrus has commented on her performance, saying she believes everyone is overthinking it, and compared it to other controversial VMAs performances.
“How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it, Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance… anyone that performs, that’s what you’re looking for. You’re wanting to make history,” she said.
