When I first saw Miley Cyrus looking uncharacteristically sophisticated in Harper’s Bazaar, in photos shot by America’s creeper-in-chief no less, I was kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. And now it has.
In an effort to remind us all that she’s still fully capable of trying too hard, Miley Cyrus has posed for a series of lascivious, washed out photographs by (who else?) Terry Richardson. Just because she cleans up nice doesn’t mean she can’t still show off her bold, “in your face” sexuality. She can’t stop!
As you can see, the photos are pretty crotch-grabby, because Miley can’t be tamed, y’all. She also demonstrates her grown lady sexual agency by sucking her thumb and allowing herself to be pawed by a well-known sexual harasser who gets off on exerting his power over young girls he likes to pretend are even younger. Swag!
It’s unclear who she’s saying “fuck you” to here—the fashion police? Bourgeois propriety? Anyone who’s ever complained about Terry’s on the job behavior?—but doesn’t she look ratchet?
Here she shows off her youthful insouciance via smoking cigarettes (do her parents know?), making faces (how would you like it if it froze that way, young lady?) and more crotch grabbing.
And what Miley Cyrus pictorial would be complete without a demonstration of her twerking abilities?
But the real story here, I think, is the fact that Miley has a crazy-long Gene Simmons tongue:
Where will she put it next?
