Miley Cyrus hit late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday wearing a multi-coloured, glittering cape, trousers and wedge shoes set and heart-shaped pasties covering her nipples.
When host Kimmel noted she was “almost naked”, the outrageous pop star said, “I’m a little cold… You could’ve warned me.” After Jimmy managed to regain composure, he asked Miley what her dad thinks of all her pasties and general nakedness.
“My dad’s cool because I’m sure he’d maybe rather not have me have my tits out all the time, but he’d rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch,” she said. “I see a lot of people with their clothes on, and they’re kind of a–holes. I don’t know if it’s the clothes that turn you into an a–hole. When you’ve got your tits out, you can’t really be an a–hole. It’s like, people are already judging you.”
Admitting he was “embarrassed” and “flustered” and didn’t know where to look when his guest showed off her exposed breasts, cheeky Miley added, “This is the trick, you just wanna stare at my eyebrows or something.”
Kimmel asked Cyrus how her dad Billy Ray Cyrus reacts when she posts near-naked pictures online and poses naked in magazine shoots, prompting the provocative pop star to state, “My dad’s cool because I’m sure he’d maybe rather me not have my t–s out all the time, but he’d rather me have my t–s out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a b—-.
“I see a lot of people with their clothes on and they’re kinda a——s… If you’ve got you t–s out you can’t really be an a——… I feel better this way.”
And Miley admitted her penchant for wearing as little as possible works well for her when she meets icons like Sir Paul McCartney.
She explains, “I did the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Joan Jett… and we were talking to Paul McCartney and I saw him not knowing how to talk to me and I don’t know really how to talk to Paul McCartney, so it made me very comfortable because it made him uncomfortable.”
True that, girl. Miley also shared her thoughts on how we should #FreeTheNipple, saying, “Humans aren’t afraid of the human breast. It’s the nipple that’s the issue…I’m showing my boobs and no one has a problem because the nipples are covered so somehow that’s OK.”
It’s a fun interview with a great wardrobe, and it somehow gets us even more excited for the VMAs.
