We’re living in a weird world when a celebrity can gain good will merely by not wearing blackface, but that’s what happened last night when Miley Cyrus started Tweeting out pictures of her 2014 Halloween costume, which is epic.
In a year where all other news was largely overshadowed by Miley Cyrus’ “too sexy for the VMAs” performance, Miley decided to celebrate Halloween by going as another lady who was too sexy for the VMAs: Lil Kim.
Cyrus duplicated Lil Kim’s awesome sparkly purple one-boob jumpsuit with sequin pasty and purple wig from the 1999 VMAs. It looks sexy and cool and pings all of our 90s nostalgia feels, and she didn’t do blackface. (Thank God somebody got the memo.)
“Happy Halloween @LilKim,” Miley Tweeted when she revealed her choice of Halloween costume.
We were just thinking that all Miley needs this Halloween is a friend to dress as Diana Ross and squeeze her boob, but it looks like she has a volunteer in Lil Kim herself.
“Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love U so much !!!! #mytwin,” Lil Kim gushed when she saw the picture.
For those of you who are too young to remember what this looked like, here is Lil Kim at the 1999 VMAs:
This costume looks ridiculously fun to wear, both on Lil Kim and on Miley Cyrus. More celebrities should start rocking one-boob jumpsuits on the red carpet. Life would be a lot more interesting.
Also, Miley’s makeup looked fantastic:
