Miley Cyrus Takes A Time Machine Back To 2002 And Makes Out With Benji Madden

Miley Cyrus Benji Madden

Word on the street is that Miley Cyrus and Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden were spotted kissing at a Hollywood nightclub on Halloween. They also apparently left the club together IN THE SAME CAR, and there’s photographic evidence of this. E! News reports that two whole sources can confirm the story, so I guess we should start preparing the engagement party posthaste. However, this rumor forces me to ask, is Benji Madden still a thing?

Didn’t we put him in a time capsule a few years ago, along with a bunch of those stretchy plastic choker necklaces and the Tamagotchi? I mean, obviously his brother Joel Madden stayed around so he could marry Nicole Richie and have a couple of kids, but I thought Benji sort of stopped existing as soon as cell phones started getting Internet access. He dated Paris Hilton, for crying out loud. You know who else dated Paris Hilton? Nick Carter. I rest my case.

Then again, Miley Cyrus did dress up as Lil’ Kim circa the 1999 VMAs for Halloween, so maybe she figured her makeout buddy should be similarly retro. According to my quick stop at Wikipedia, Good Charlotte was formed in 1996, so Benji was an acceptable choice. My brain holds him hostage in 2002, however, because I remember having a middle school friend who was so obsessed with the band that she brought a pillow with their faces on it to every sleepover we attended together.

Although the age difference between 20-year-old Miley and 34-year-old Benji is a little iffy, this pairing actually makes a lot more sense to me than Miley and Liam, a relationship which I am still convinced was just a hologram. Or maybe even a Jimmy Kimmel prank. Miley hasn’t commented on the alleged hookup, and I like to think it’s because someone asked if she made out with Benji Madden and she just said, “Who?”

      I will admit to being a little drunk right now, but I would totally hook up with Benji. I had a huge crush on him in high school.

        I will admit to being very sober right now, but I thank you for sharing.

      Benji and Good Charlotte are awesome, in 2002 and now. I hope this is true because I agree with the writer that Benji and Miley would be more suited than Miley and Liam. Sure there is a big age gap but I believe that as long as they are both adults and care for each other than age really shouldn’t matter… Unless one of them are really old and then it’s gross, but since he is only 34 I say good on them if it is true.

        It does make more sense. I wouldn’t bet on it going anywhere though. Miley can’t stop!

      I will admit to not even knowing that there are two Maddens and so I saw this and was like “NO! But he loves Nicole Ritchie and has such pretty babies with her!”

        Those identical twins can be such tricksters.
