What happens when Miley Cyrus comes to Vegas? Tears, little people twerking and nipple pasties.
This is the land of the free, home of the cleavage, so far be it from us to have a problem with a girl showing a bit of skin. But Miley’s iHeartRadio day two outfit—a white mesh dress over thick-strapped underwear and pasties with a full-sleeved furry shrug—looked vaguely like a scene from Yetis Gone Wild (less fur, more heat!). Which is cool, if that’s what you’re going for.
It wasn’t until Major Lazer had its digital way with her that we truly saw the potential. The EDM collaboration project posted a “Lazergram” to Twitter, showing a cartoonized Miley transformed into a futuristic musical guerilla, complete with freaky red eyepiece, microphone ammo belt and really big gun. Done up Lazer-style, even her ubiquitous tongue (can we name that thing already? Mirus?) looked badass.
Perhaps Miley can commission Major Lazer to style her for her next big public appearance. I bet she’d turn out looking more like Tank Girl and less like an underpaid porn star’s Savers donation.
