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."

And Now Back To Celebrities: What Are They Doing With Their Vaginas?

Oct 20 2014 3:18pm CDT | Source: The Superficial

After the depressing one-two punch (poor choice of words) of Stephen Collins getting off (and I did it again) scot-free and Ray Rice being reinstated next month, I thought we could use some lighter fare. So here’s Miley Cyrus doing wacky stuff with her vulva because she’s not Hannah Montana anymore blah blah blah drugs. The important thing is I wrote vulva instead of vagina which is practically a miracle considering I still think these things ...

First Listen: The Flaming Lips, 'With A Little Help From My Fwends'

Oct 19 2014 10:02pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

It's hard to divine, on paper anyway, a formula for effectively covering The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in its entirety. It's not an album that had been crying out for improvement — to put it mildly — nor has it ever receded far enough toward the cultural margins to require rediscovery. These songs still occupy the ether of the everyday, even for those who've never sat down and studied the record from front to back. E ...

Miley Cyrus Flashes Extra Crotchety Crotch Shots for the Good People of Australia

Oct 17 2014 11:54am CDT | Source: Egotastic.com

I suppose if Aussie Iggy Azalea is going to roam the streets of America flashing her coochie cleft, it's only fair that Miley Cyrus take her crotch flashing show to Australia to give the good folks of Sydney a solid view of her leotard sucked up into her lady nest. That's the type of free trade you don't hear discussed much in Washington, but it really is the most important. Miley has turned flashing her lower parts into s ...

Oh, my oh my. You wouldn't hardly know that summer is well behind us from the bounty of self-published celebrity photos emanating voluntarily from the cell phones and tablets of some of the world's hottest celebrities. It's like a river of hotness that keeps on flowing. Though we should still be mindful to recycle our plastic bottles and re-use condoms. I'm actually not sure that last part is recommended.
