Miley Cyrus just did what many of us have fantasized about at one time or another. Disguising herself in a wig and outfit, Miley took to the streets in an edition of “I Witness News” for Jimmy Kimmel Live in order to find out what people really think of her. Cyrus posed as an Australian reporter named Janet, asking passersby their thoughts of Miley Cyrus.
As might be suspected, not all of the subjects were big fans of Ms. Cyrus. In fact, one individual let loose harsh criticisms on the entire Cyrus family, before finally divulging his opinion of Miley herself.
“I think she’s starving for attention and that’s why she’s doing it all crazy like that. She’s missing something somewhere.”
“In her heart, probably,” Cyrus said, taking the criticism in stride. “In her deep soul.”
“I think she lost her mind in the Hollywood madness,” another woman told the disguised Ms. Cyrus.
Cyrus, still dressed up as Janet, joined two teens in a rendition of “We Can’t Stop,” which included a brief twerk along with a sing-a-long of the chorus. As the performance ended, another person stepped forward asserting that Janet wasn’t really who she claimed.
“I think you’re Miley Cyrus right now,” the man said, according to Rolling Stone.
“That look like Miley Cyrus?” as she offered the man a peek down her blouse, as she gave him the low-down. “Looks like Miley Cyrus, doesn’t it? I need you to keep that on the DL, but it’s Miley Cyrus’ t—-es. Janet up here, Miley down here.”
Following the woman-on-the-street episode, Miley joined Kimmel for an in-studio interview, where Ms. Cyrus divulged some insight into the relationship she shared with her father.
“He’d rather me have my t–s out and be a good person, than have a shirt on and be a b—h.”
The conversation turned toward this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony and the opportunity Cyrus had to meet Paul McCartney, which, as the singer describes, turned out to be awkward for each of them.
“I was there and we were talking to Paul McCartney, and I saw him not knowing how to talk to me,” Cyrus said, as reported by the New York Daily News. “Which, I don’t really know how to talk to Paul McCartney, so it made me really comfortable because it made him more uncomfortable. So sometimes it is a nice convo ice breaker. You can be like, ‘Stop staring at my tits!’ and the convo keeps going.”
Miley Cyrus will be hosting the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday.
