Like her or loathe her, everyone has an opinion on Miley Cyrus. So the singer went undercover on Jimmy Kimmel’s show to see what people really thought of her.
Cyrus disguised herself as an Australian called Janet for the talk show host’s ‘I Witness News’ segment and took to the streets of LA to see if, despite the tabloid frenzy, people actually thought she was a bad role model.
One interviewee not only blasted the entire Cyrus family, but later on suggested,
I think she’s starving for attention and that’s why she’s doing it all crazy like that. She’s missing something somewhere.”
Cyrus said, not missing a beat.
In her heart, probably. In her deep soul.”
The awkwardness continued. Cyrus spoke with a man who had no problem with her, but liked Taylor Swift better.
Speaking to another woman, Cyrus pretended to forget her own father’s name while the woman posited,
I think she lost her mind in the Hollywood madness.”
Still, Cyrus had some fun with some of her interviewees, including two teens who sang the chorus of “We Can’t Stop” before joining the eager, pant-suited Janet for a quick twerk. The entire bit ended with one man telling Janet straight up, “I think you’re Miley Cyrus right now.”
Turning towards the man and offering him a peak down her blouse.
Looks like Miley Cyrus, doesn’t it? I need you to keep that on the DL, but it’s Miley Cyrus’ titties. Janet up here, Miley down here.”
If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t hate Miley Cyrus, she is hosting the VMA music awards this weekend, which, given the fracas between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift last month, might make for quite good telly.>
