Miley Cyrus Chopped Off Her Hair

Miley Cyrus led us on a miniature Odyssey Sunday night, in a series of (initially) cryptic tweets. First, “tik tok tik tok,” next, a photo of stylist Chris McMillan menacing Miley’s messy bun with a pair of shears, followed by ”It’s happening.” Soon after, the full blown narcissism began, with one photo after another of the singer’s new asymmetrical bleached pixie:

Amidst tweet after tweet about how happy she felt–”Never felt more me in my whole life ❤”–she tried to cut the haters off at the pass: “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. my hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye.”

Look, we’ve been known to enjoy a big scorpion bowl of Miley haterade. Moreover, a lot of that irritation comes from her seemingly bottomless need for attention. However, we think 1) she’s completely right that her “hair is attached to [her] head” and she can do whatever she wants with it and 2) it kind of… really suits her? Like, she looks pretty great:

A lopsided pixie is hard to pull off. So is bleached hair. Even the Black Lips approve.

Maybe we’re having an uncharacteristically supportive streak? We feel like we should be against the “mall punk” aesthetic but…

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

We’re for it. Oh, and better luck next time, Taylor Swift.

    It’s a bit Hipster Draco Malfoy, which is to say I really like it.

    Can Liam leave her and be with me now??

  • BeccaTheCyborg

    The degree to which that flatters her face makes me stop with the otherwise pretty steady haterade. Cute as hell.

    • Ashley Cardiff

      Pretty much exactly.

  • Amanda Chatel

    I suddenly got a steady stream of Robyn songs in my head.

  • Maggie

    I think it looks great, and really suits her! It takes a lot of guts for a woman to chop off all of her hair, and even if she is doing it for an attention grab, good on her for being brave enough to do it.

    So, I already knew about Miley’s haircut very early this morning because it was on THE NATIONAL FUCKING NEWS!
    Yep, I wanted to know what’s going on in the world today and I was treated to a story about Miley Cyrus’s haircut. Fucking seriously.

  • Sunshine

    I also got the Robyn vibe! I like the shortness but not a fan of the cut.

  • Sugar

    well a week ago, I shaved my head. so, Miley is just jealous of me. Stop hating, Miley!

    I wanted to vote that it was stupid, but that wasn’t an option.
