Miley Cyrus cannot be tamed!
Last week Miley let her buzzed hair down when she performed “Decisions” with DJ Borgone in L.A. alongside a topless stripper and now we know why.
Miley is a diva-in-training and the lesson that evening was Provocative 101—an essential element for all larger-than-life female icons. Needless to say she passed the class as displayed by her performance of Billy Idol’s '80s anthem “Rebel Yell” last night. Aw, our baby Miley really is growing up!
The “Party in the U.S.A.” singer toughened up during the 2012 “VH1 Divas” concert where she channeled her rocker side with studded jewelry, skintight pants, and a revealing leather crop top. The 20-year-old looked at ease on stage—which included stage diving, crowd surfing, head banging, and other rebellious antics—probably letting off some repressed steam bottled up from her days at Disney.
It was a good move for Miley who can’t stop, won’t stop until we forget she was ever associated with Hannah Montana. Karaokeing through “The Best of Both Worlds” is the stuff of pop princesses; belting the opening bars of “Rebel Yell” while clutching your own breast is the stuff of a VH1 diva.
An '80s rocker is all just another side of this girl who was deceptively born in 1992. She showed up on the red carpet in expected Miley fashion—a covered up Norma Kamali turtleneck dress with diamond cutouts along its side—before switching it up with a performance that couldn’t be caged.
