We’ve all seen it by now; Miley Cyrus’s train wreck performance.
What’s that you say? Which train wreck performance?
Good question. Sorry I wasn’t more clear.
For purposes of this post, I’m referring to her performance at the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards. I’m being quite generous with the term “perform.” If she “performed” at these awards, then I “perform” a culinary masterpiece each night when I microwave frozen dinners and cover them with ketchup.
Because I’m super supportive, I’ve decided to write a few pointers for sweet and innocent Miley so she can learn from this experience and rise to her full potential…doing low grade porn.
1. Look at yourself in the mirror before you make faces in public
This is NOT attractive. Nothing about this is attractive. I can’t imagine how you thought you were being sexy by doing this face. Then again, I can’t imagine you thought your putting your hair into points to look like alien antennae was a good idea either.
2. Please don’t take beauty advice from Amanda Bynes
I can only assume by your appearance that you conferred with your bestie, Amanda Bynes, about hair and makeup choices. I’m shocked you were able to reach her while she is seeking psychiatric treatment, but I guess Amanda is just a loyal friend that way.
Either way, your choice of hair and make up was not your best. Perhaps you should borrow one of Byne-Byne’s wigs and cover yourself.
3. Don’t forget you have a vagina (or so it’s alleged)
I’m not sure why you continually felt the need to grab your crotch and thrust it forward like a man would do with his balls. Perhaps it’s from years of watching your father in skin tight jeans boot-scoot-boogy himself into the pants of women everywhere.
Fortunately, those restrictive pants lowered daddy’s sperm count so only a few spawns emerged. It’s how the universe stayed balanced, and for that, we’re grateful.
However, thrusting your pelvis while grabbing your crotch is not something classy women typically do. Leave that to the pros. I believe Madonna has the market on that.
4. You have identity issues
Forget the Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana confusion, your identity issues span to different species. You are not a bear, despite emerging on stage from a teddy bear’s vagina. Wearing a leotard with a bear’s face on it does not make you a bear. If everyone turned into what they wear, I would be Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville covered in peanut butter.
A girl can dream.
5. If you’re going to lip sync, try to keep up with the words
Might I suggest watching a few Milli Vanilli videos? They were pros and their music was a lot better than yours. If you’re looking for what not to do, check out Ashley Simpson’s performance on SNL. Actually, just google Ashley Simpson and take it from there.
6. The teddy bear backpack/purses from the 90s are not coming back
Believe me, I wish they were. Nothing says sophistication quite like a child’s toy stuffed with lip gloss and then strapped to your back. Sadly, I’ve had no luck bringing back this trend, and putting life-sized stuffed bears on the backs of others isn’t going to help the cause.
7. Read your audience
Maybe you don’t actually know how to read. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, as you clearly didn’t read the reviews of your last album. Either way, please learn how to know when your audience is bored.
Take a moment to stop humping whatever is nearby, and actually look at the faces of those you are supposed to be entertaining.
If you’re still confused, use this handy rule of thumb: If you’re singing, dancing, or talking, your audience is bored.
And it’s a rule of thumb, not a rule of “giant foam finger that has nothing to do with anything other than to give you something else to hump while on stage.”
That’s it for now, Miley, mostly because my brain has turned to mush after watching your performance too many times. I can only hope you take my advice so we can all avoid these incidents in the future.
Come to think of it, it’s more entertaining if you ignore my advice completely. You obviously ignored the advice of your stylist.
P.S. I can see your underwear.
