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."

23 Questions For Pop Stars That Cannot Be Answered. Ever.

Aug 30 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Odd behavior is sort of a hallmark of being famous. We've come to expect some celebrities to pull ridiculous stunts in the name of art or self-promotion. When Shia LaBeouf wears a paper bag on his head, we tip our heads to the side and tap our chins and go "hmmm..." and wait for answers. When James Franco hits on an 18 year old on Instagram, we accuse him of being a dirty old man and then realize that's exactly what happens in his newest flick, la ...

Miley Cyrus put the spotlight on the problem of teen transients when she brought a formerly homeless guy to the VMAs, but in the process, she alerted authorities to the whereabouts of a person of interest — her date, 22-year-old Jesse Helt. Turns out blondie-locks had a warrant for his arrest out of Oregon, and the powers that be were pretty grateful to Miley for finding their Waldo for them. This may be Fugitive 101 ...

Eiza Gonzalez Is No Miley Cyrus

Aug 29 2014 1:23pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

This is the Mexican singer who stole Miley Cyrus’ fiance last year by pointing out that she was far hotter, had bigger tits, and didn’t wipe her poo hands on her lips after taking a shit just to seem punk. She also has a Spanish accent. A Spanish accent can raise a boner like Jesus did to Lazarus. Miley has a pointy tongue and an unemployed male model she totes around to exhibit the plight of the good looking and homeless. A Mexican girl knows exactly what do ...

Amateur hillbilly stripper chipmunk Miley Cyrus is on the cover of V Magazine’s “Rebel Issue”, which sort of makes sense, since she’s damn near re-wrote every chapter in the book of Former Disney Ho Rebellion. Slutty shower pics? Check. Smoking drugs? Check. Humping everything that moves? Check. More drugs? Oh, you betcha. The issue doesn’t ...
