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."

WTF Alert: Allison Williams To Play Peter Pan

Jul 30 2014 9:27pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

It’s taken me months of therapy to rid my mind of the musical disaster that was Carrie Underwood in that live action version of The Sound of Music over the winter. But now, NBC seems hellbent on another aural assault. The network is plowing ahead with plans for a live action Peter Pan. Christopher Walken has signed on to play Captain Hook and now Girls star Allison Williams is a lock to play The Lost Boy himself. ALLISON WILLIAMS. Jemal C ...

Allison Williams Playing Peter Pan Will Shatter All of Your Childhood Memories

Jul 30 2014 11:15am CDT | Source: Scandalist

In what’s clearly the most random casting news of the day, Girls star Allison Williams has scored the lead role of Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live. To be fair, previous casting announcements have included Christopher Walken (as Captain Hook), so it’s clear the December 4 production is going for the unconventional. While Williams excels in the part of an insufferable perfectionist on her HBO series, she’s far from ou ...

7 Cats Who Hate Feminism: Who Wants to WORK??!

Jul 29 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

For the record, Miley Cyrus is a feminist. So is Courtney Stodden. But the following felines are decidedly NOT part of this movement. Not at all. Not even a little bit. In what appears to be a strange response to the even stranger hashtag #WomenAgainstFeminism, someone has created a Tumblr titled “Confused Cats Against Feminism." Really, it's unclear why it exists, but it's even more unclear why anyone sh ...

WTF Alert: Miley Cyrus and Friend Give Each Other Tattos

Jul 29 2014 2:34pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

Someday, perhaps Miley Cyrus will do something noteworthy that doesn’t make me react with a WTF. It will have to be a perfect storm situation where all the planets align, she has both a substitute hairdresser and wardrobe stylist, and perhaps her Instagram is also broken. Today, minions, is not that day. Instead, today is the day that I realize that Miley has broken every health code/common sense rule imaginable to tattoo ...
