Miley Cyrus met with a 7 year-old cancer patient, also named Miley, and allegedly screwed up the whole thing. Radar Online reports that the Make-A-Wish Foundation arranged for little Miley Hodge to meet with not-little Miley Cyrus after receiving word from doctors that her aggressive Stage IV Osteosarcoma has left her with roughly 6 months to live. Actually, she originally wanted to meet with Justin Bieber but he’s got a busy life of getting strange tattoos and publicly sexting Selena Gomez so he couldn’t make it. But it’s not like Miley Cyrus’ standing in for him made things any better.
“The family went to Los Angeles and were put off for nearly a week before they met [Cyrus]. They finally met at the recording studio and from what I understand, Cyrus was more interested in what she was doing in the studio than paying attention to the little girl.”
What?? Nooo, Miley! Cyrus, not Hodge. This is proving to be very confusing. Anyway, this account of what went down is the opposite of what’s supposed to happen when you meet with any fan, let alone one who just wanted the chance to meet you in her final months.
I’m currently trying to will myself believe that this is all some sort of misunderstanding and that Miley certainly didn’t disregard the little girl, at the very least not on purpose. I’m usually very good at willing myself to believe many things, like, for example, that celebrity breakups aren’t actually happening. But the fact that Miley’s family has resumed their campaign to get Justin to meet with her is doing a pretty good job at convincing me that it just might be.
So, does this mean that Miley ruined this little girl’s experience so badly that she needs a quick rewind and redo to fix things? Or does it mean that the meeting was fine and she’d just also like to meet Justin? Fingers crossed that it’s the latter because it would be bad on all fronts if the former is true.
