The only thing that could be more shocking than Miley Cyrus’ recent public antics would be news that Miley Cyrus wasn’t shocking. Perhaps only the news of Cyrus reverting to a cutesy Hannah Montana look would truly rattle her followers.
It is likely in this state of mind that the 21-year-old pop star decided to show up for Alexander Wang’s New York Fashion Week after party by making a big fashion statement wearing almost nothing.
Cyrus showed up topless, wearing only tasseled pasties, shaped like tiny ice-cream cones, to cover up her nipples to the September 6 event.
The party was graced by the likes of Kendall Jenner and a performance by Tyga, but it was the shine of the pink glitter on Cyrus’ chest that had everyone talking.
On the days prior, the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer had been actively posting pics of varying shock value on Instagram. It included a photo of her mother Tish trying out fake comedy teeth and a photo of her bruised and bloodied elbow, with the caption: “busted ass naked”.
She also posted a video on Instagram where she walks around in her underwear acting like a newly arrived tourist in Hollywood.
The black and white video clip was simply captioned “Hollywood” and showed Cyrus dressed in nothing more than a striped shirt and her underwear. It starts with a close up of the singer’s buns which pans out to show her hugging a sign that spells out Hollywood. She talks with a strange accent and pretends to have just arrived in town.
The twerking star also shocked the world last month when she brought homeless 22-year-old Jesse Helt as her date to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Helt accepted Cyrus’ Video of the Year award at the VMAs and made an emotional speech about homeless youth in America. It was later learned that he is wanted by Oregon police for violating his probation for criminal trespassing. He has since turned himself in and is facing the legal charges against him with the help of Cyrus.
