Miley Cyrus Rocks Billy Idol’s ‘Rebel Yell’ With Crotch-Grabbing & Pyrotechnics (VIDEOS)

Say What!? 5

Miley CyrusIt's kind of hard to say what's going on with Miley Cyrus. Seems like she's trying really, really hard to break out of that Disney mold lately. Now she's been channeling, believe it or not, the one and only Billy Idol. She performed "Rebel Yell" onstage at the "VH1 Divas" show at The Shrine Auditorium Sunday night. She rocked the new hairdo, wore a spikey leather two-piece outfit, and even grabbed her crotch a bunch of times.

Really, Hannah Montana?

The performance wouldn't have been complete without some pyrotechnics, women dancing in cages, and crowd surfing. I guess since it's called "VH1 Divas" show, Miley really wanted to unleash her inner diva ... and this is what came out? You'll have to see it to decide whether you love it or hate it.

You know you want to watch:

 

I mean, she may have gone a little cray recently, but her voice isn't that bad (at least she's not completely auto-tuned), and she certainly was able to get the audience pumped up. And holy crap is the girl skinny.

And I don't know if it's a compliment or an insult to say that she really does kind of look like Billy Idol ...

Trashy and unclassy, or is Miley just being herself? Regardless, it seems that she's making it abundantly clear that this is the new Miley, perhaps trying to create shockwaves in the industry like Rihanna and Lady Gaga. With the headlines she's making, it's certainly working so far.

Since you were such a Billy Idol fan back in the day, let's take a walk down memory lane and watch one of his performances:

Ah, memories.

You are free to go about your week now.

What did you think of Miley's take on "Rebel Yell"? Is she having fun or going off the deep end?
