If I was a dog, I’d be slinking around the house with my tail between my legs right now, because I am ashamed of myself. No, I didn’t poop in your shoes, but leave me alone in the house again while you go to the opera and I will make you regret it. Nope, this time I’m ashamed because I saw Miley Cyrus‘ oft-discussed new haircut in photos from last night’s VMAs…and I didn’t totally hate it.
I will be the first to tell you that I’m not a fan of Miley Cyrus. I have no way of proving it, but I think approximately 78.87% of her persona is designed to get attention. From her fans, from her parents, who knows. Her body is covered in fifteen random tattoos, she’s engaged to Liam Hemsworth at age nineteen, and she managed to eke out the drama from a whole telenovela plot line just from cutting her hair. (Did she mean to do it or didn’t she? Is she sick? Does she love it? Does she hate it? Do we hate it? Does she have an evil twin??) By now I’ve received enough death threats on my previous Miley articles that I know we’re all on the same page as to how I feel about this girl. And yet…
I missed the VMAs themselves last night, so I was excited to start my morning with some good, old-fashioned judging of celebrities. And Miley was one of the ones I was the most excited about. I had a feeling she’d have a boob or two out, or slung over her shoulder or something, and I couldn’t imagine there was anything particularly lovely she could do with the bleached blond bowl cut that I’ve become acquainted with via her pictures on Twitter. But ugh. You guyyyyys I kind of liked how she looked last night! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I didn’t totally hate what she did with her hair, or her dress, or even her make-up. I mean, did she have the same exact hair as Pink? Yes. And is she slowly transitioning into (fellow pregnant lady??) Amber Rose? Yes. But all in all, I thought she looked pretty great. It’s an edgy look, but she’s nineteen and a popstar, so get after it. And even the tattoos showing through the fabric in the sleeves? Eff you, Miley, for making me think that looks okay. I guess if you’re gonna have tattoos all over your body, you might as well show them off through your sexy funeral dress that I also didn’t despise.
Ugh, I think I need to go take a shower. I’ve never said this many positive things about Miley Cyrus before.
