â€‹Miley Cyrus appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 27 to promote her gig as the host of the MTV Video Music Awards. She wore a black sequinned skirt and capelet, both covered in a jigsaw puzzle's worth of rainbow-colored wonderment and approximately 6,000 hair scrunchies. This is the sort of outfit you (or your stylist) buy when you're high and shopping online, so all the props to Miley for following through with the purchase.
She also wore a pair of sparkly, heart-shaped nipple pasties, and they were fabulous. Though her capelet kept the pasties covered while she just sat still, moving, waving, or even the slightest arm movement revealed them. This seemed to make Jimmy just a little bit uncomfortable—after a chaste hug and the introductory pleasantries, he stammered his way through repeating, "You are almost naked," a few times (when, nope, not really) and said he was struggling to know where to look. I don't know Jimmy, how about at Miley, your guest! And not just at her tits specifically, as she put it, because Miley hates the word "boob."
Also, one of Jimmy's first questions—and just because you apologize while asking doesn't make this OK—is asking Miley how she thinks her dad feels about her outfits. I don't know Jimmy, maybe ask Billy Ray himself! "My dad's cool," Miley says, "because he'd rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch." She then notes that she's met a lot of clothes-wearing people who are assholes and ponders on the potential correlation.
