Miley Cyrus is undoubtedly one of the most talked about celebrities in Hollywood at the moment. The former Disney star has been making headlines for her strange behavior for the past year and a half. It all started when Miley discovered ‘twerking’ and decided she needed to show the world that she could twerk, over and over again. After that, Miley continued to shock everyone with her strange behavior and crazy antics. Each new Miley headline has seemingly been stranger than the last, and just when the world thinks, Ms. Cyrus couldn’t possibly shock anyone again, she does. Here are 10 of the strangest things Miley Cyrus has done.
10) The Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky “Performance”
In February 2014, Miley Cyrus did the unthinkable to open up her Bangerz tour in Vancouver. The twenty-one year old, after performing ‘Party In the USA’ simulated giving oral sex to a backup dancer dressed up like Bill Clinton. The Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal occurred in 1998, when Cyrus was only six years old. It’s not clear what point she was trying to make, or who even came up with the disturbing idea, but one thing is for sure; it was strange.
9) The Constant Crotch Grabs
Since the twenty-one year old kicked off her Bangerz tour on February 14th of this year, she has been photographed constantly grabbing her crotch. It appears the singer is trying to channel her ‘inner’ Michael Jackson and then some. The singer has also appeared to be masturbating during her performance of ‘Love, Party, Money.’ While sitting on the hood of a car, Cyrus rubbed her ‘hood’ – leaving the audience scratching their heads and wondering what exactly they were watching.
8) Her Wardrobe Choices
To go along with her strange behavior, Miley has paired many peculiar outfits with it. For her 2013 VMA performance, she started out wearing a Chucky Cheese-like-mouse costume. Partway through the performance, she removed it to reveal a matching, latex, nude underwear and bra – which was quite unflattering. The singer also wore a see through white mesh dress with black pasties and black underwear during another performance. No matter what she chooses to wear, one can expect it to be skimpy and that it’ll barely cover anything. This is a bit surprising considering Miley once stated in an interview with ELLE magazine, “A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy, because you naturally have star power.” So, according to Miley, Miley isn’t a star?
7) The ‘Underwear’ Performance
Miley Cyrus barely wears any clothing as it is, but at a performance in Milwaukee, WI on March 9th, the singer wore even less – we guess. Miley missed her wardrobe change and ran back out to perform in her underwear. Her underwear attire wasn’t any less revealing than anything else she’s performed in, but Miley took to Twitter to explain the mess up anyways. The show must go on, no matter what.
6) The Katy Perry Kiss
In February 2014, when Miley was performing in Los Angeles, Katy Perry was sitting front row. Cyrus walked over to Katy and the two shared a kiss, that became very awkward, very fast. Perry seemingly went in for a peck, while Cyrus went in for much more, causing Katy to quickly pull away. While being interviewed on Australian TV about the kiss, Katy Perry explained how she was shocked when Miley offered up more than a peck, adding, “God knows where that tongue has been. We don’t know. That tongue is infamous!” Cyrus fired back at Katy via Twitter tweeting, “Girl if ur worried abt where tongues have been good thing ur ex boo is ur EX BOO cause we ALL know where THAT… been.” Ouch! The two continued to exchange insults and it doesn’t look like these girls are going to kiss and makeup anytime soon.
5) The Music Videos
‘We Can’t Stop’ was the first of Miley’s string of strange music videos. It was released on June of 2013 and was jam packed with weird moments, including: Miley making out with a Barbie, Miley wearing a grill, Miley twerking and Miley spanking other females. It was hard to tell if the video was artistic or not. The singer’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ music video was released in September of 2013 and the world couldn’t really make sense of it. The video featured the singer sitting naked on a wrecking ball swinging back and forth. Apparently, she’s just being Miley.
4) The Consumption of Fan’s Underwear
During her February 16th tour performance, a fan threw their thong up on stage, while Miley was singing. Instead of kicking it off stage or leaving it there, like any other person probably would have done. Miley did the inconceivable. She picked them up and put them in her mouth – Gross! It looks like Katy Perry got her answer on where Miley’s tongue has been.
3) The Tongue Thing
The only thing more famous than Miley Cyrus is Miley Cyrus’s tongue. Miley is constantly sticking it out or putting it on inanimate objects like, sledge hammers, Barbies, pillows, mirrors and chains – just to name a few. It’s not clear what the young singer’s obsession is with her tongue, but it doesn’t appear it’ll be going away anytime soon.
2) The VMA Performance
When a person utters the words Miley Cyrus and VMA’s in the same sentence, everybody immediately thinks of her 2013 VMA performance with Robin Thicke. This performance was truly shocking and hard to watch. It was full of odd costumes, over the top sexual innuendo, a bizarre foam finger and twerking. Critics claim the young singer went beyond the realm of sexual suggestiveness and nearly entered the world of soft core porn. Miley made it perfectly clear that she cannot stop.
1) The Twerking
Twerking, an aggressive booty shaking dance that peaked in popularity in 2013 due to Miley Cyrus embracing it completely. A home video of Miley twerking in a Unicorn onesie went viral in March of 2013 and after that, the pop singer twerked her way all over the world. Cyrus twerked in her music videos, at the VMA’s, on tour, at Juicy J’s concert and anywhere else she had the room to bend over. Many have criticized Miley’s obsession with twerking, making comments on her “assets” and her race. Jay Z even dissed Cyrus in his song ‘SomeWhereInAmerica,’ when he rapped, “…they see I’m still putting work in, ’cause somewhereinamerica, Miley Cyrus is still twerkin’, ha! Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, Miley, Miley, twerk, twerk, twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley, twerk. Twerk, yeah, ugh-huh. Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley — Only in America.” Apparently, Jay Z has 99 problems and Miley Cyrus twerking is one.
