Miley Cyrus kicks off Bangerz tour in cannabis leaf leotard and does a 'Monica Lewinsky'
Singer appeared to kneel down in front of a Bill Clinton impersonator
Miley Cyrus is ready for her very own party in the USA.
The singer has kicked off her Bangerz tour in true Miley style, appearing to simulate fake oral sex on a Bill Clinton impersonator and twerking in a cannabis-patterned leotard.
Cyrus said last week her tour was “art” and would give teenagers the chance to see things they may have been sheltered from in their small American towns.
But the singer’s idea of art continues to court controversy.
She opened a Bangerz concert this weekend dressed in a painfully high-cut leotard, spread her legs provocatively on the bonnet of a golden car, appeared to simulate masturbation, danced with midgets and slapped an overweight African-American backing dancer on the bum.
During her performance of “Party in the USA”, the singer then reportedly dropped to her knees in a sequinned rodeo outfit while appearing to give a Bill Clinton impersonator oral sex.
Her Bangerz on-stage antics were performed in front a giant ‘Parental Advisory Explicit Content’ board, a sure sign she wants the world to perceive her as an x-rated artist (in case they hadn’t done already). Miley performs on-stage with a dwarf wearing a Britney Spears mask
As ever, Cyrus is in control of her self-constructed “fallen Disney teen star” public persona and will continue to cavort her image for the sake of her new-found music career.
Cyrus’ all too self-conscious personal branding is the real art form here.
