Miley Cyrus morphs into Madonna for topless German Vogue pose
The special issue, called ‘Blonde Angel’ in German, marks Cyrus’ debut as a Vogue cover star
Madonna’s disdain for her imitators is notorious.
Take Lady Gaga, for example. Her too-familiar-for-comfort “Born This Way” (which sounds almost identical to Madge’s “Express Yourself”) spawned a bitter backlash, which at best sparked accusations of plagiarism and at worst? An entire diss-track, “I Don’t Give A”, during which she commandeered a few of Gaga’s peers (Nicki Minaj and M.I.A) to charmingly tell her: ‘There’s only one Queen of Pop, b**ch’.
And that’s before all the religious imagery, the ‘shock’ public nudity and the courting of controversy.
So what, we wonder, does she make of Miley Cyrus’ latest shoot for German Vogue?
Quelle surprise, just days after her naked shoot for W magazine is revealed, the 21-year-old is topless again, this time to pose in an exclusive photo spread by Mario Testino for the March issue of the fashion magazine.
The special issue, called ‘Blonde Angel’, marks Cyrus’ debut as a Vogue cover star. It also appears to show that she is slowly morphing into “Like A Virgin”-era 1980s Madonna.
"I liked the idea of showing Miley differently from how we know her. As a women and not a girl anymore," says Mario Testino of the concept behind the shoot.
In other words… To show Miley as Madonna.
"She’s in the process of turning herself into a rebel," he added.
Again. He meant Madonna.
"I wanted to find out if being blond helps with that," he contined.
So he turned her into Madonna.
An exact replica of Miley's face taken from a 1987 movie still of Madonna. It really is uncanny. Not that Madonna probably minds. She spent an awfully long time turning Miley into the ill-advised early-2000s rhinestone cowgirl version of herself when the pair performed an awkward MTV Unplugged session together in Hollywood.
"That was pretty f**king cool, you guys,” Cyrus said of being Madonna.
"It sounds super-lame, but as a pop star it's pretty cool performing with [read BEING] Madonna...
"Today was one of those days that it was really easy to get out of bed."
Because she woke up and realised she was Madonna.
Other platinum stars of the March issue of German Vogue include, rather aptly, Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry, grunge-pop star Sky Ferreira and supermodel Anja Rubik.
