Miley Cyrus defends use of little people on tour

Feb 28 2014, 2:28pm CST | by

Miley Cyrus has defended her use of little people as backing dancers.

The 'We Can't Stop' star is accompanied by short people on stage for her current Bangerz Tour, but insists they are employed to have fun rather than just because of their height.

Talking to MSNBC's Ronan Farrow, she said: "We're making them feel sexual and beautiful."

Speaking more specifically about one of the dancers, she added: "We're all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance - she's actually an awesome dancer.

"They're just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they're awesome dancers just on their own. It's not me telling them how to be.

"It's really funny how serious people take it. And [people are] like, 'You're racist.' And I'm like, 'Really?' We're like a bunch of kids dancing around in, like, bear [suits], we don't do choreography."

One of Miley's former backing dancers, Hollis Jane - who was spanked by the star on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last year - previously said she felt used by the singer.

She wrote: "I was a bear in Miley Cyrus' VMA performance and it was my first time doing anything like that... anything where I was being used because of my height, not because of my talent. And I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do."

However, Hollis has now clarified her remark, saying she does not blame Miley, but "little people need to stop being seen, in my opinion, in the media as jokes."

Miley Cyrus Calls the Cops

Sep 16 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

It’s not uncommon for the police to receive calls regarding disoriented elderly women and wandering illegal immigrant children who are still confused after walking a thousand miles in homemade sandals. Miley Cyrus called for the police from a fire station after being followed by a paparazzi snapping she and her sister riding their 3-wheeled motorcycle around Beverly Hills. Despite what you saw in the Eddie Murphy movies, the Beverly Hills police ...

Miley Cyrus Braless and Bare Midriff Easy Rider

Sep 16 2014 1:31pm CDT | Source: Egotastic.com

I'm not a big fan of these three wheeled cycles that Justin Bieber uses to terrorize civilians in multiple countries, but I suppose everything looks better with girls atop it. Miley Cyrus and friend (sister?) took her multi-wheeled motorcycle out for a spin in Beverly Hills just to make sure ample attention was paid. She went for the skimpy outfit as well not recommended by most motorcycle ward ...

Nick Cave: 'The Creative Process Is An Altered State In Itself'

Sep 16 2014 2:38am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

When you've been in the music business as long as Nick Cave, inevitably someone will want to make a documentary about you. From grainy footage of his early '80s band The Birthday Party to a mid-'90s pop duet with Kylie Minogue that made him an unlikely MTV star, he's a tempting subject. Now at 56, Cave still cuts a mean figure in his slim dark suits and crisp white shirts. As a film score composer and novelist, the writer in him couldn't resist the uncon ...

Miley Cyrus Bastardizes The Hippies

Miley Cyrus just released a fairly shitty rudimentary cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Baby I’m Gonna Leave You”, presumably in correlation to her new art/fashion/whatever the fuck it is Dirty Hippy collection of obnoxious looking shit she paid someone to assemble and took credit for. Cyrus has a few characteristics of actual hippies: an overstated self righteousness, a drug habit, and what is surely a large volume of unprotected sex with people she wil ...
