Professional repercussion numero uno has been bestowed unto Miley Cyrus for her uncomfy VMA Twerk Fest. And her punishment has been dealt out by none other than fashion's ice queen herself: Anna Wintour.
Miley was slotted to be on the cover of Vogue in a few months (which, hello, is amazing press for a celebrity), but after HRH Wintour got wind of Miley's raunchy, finger foam-toting performance (and likely watched it through sunglass-enrobed eyes on YouTube), she "decided to take the cover in a different direction."
Oof. Cyrus, y'burnt.
There are a few people you don't want to be blacklisted by when you're a celeb, and Anna Wintour is certainly one of them. For Miley's cover shoot to be cancelled because Anna found it "distasteful" doesn't bode well for the pop star. Not only does it sound like she'll never score a Vogue cover again, I wouldn't be surprised if other magazines followed suit. What Miley did was "distasteful", and sorry, but "distasteful" is never in vogue. Quite literally, apparently.
Miley Cyrus is a very famous celebrity. A celebrity who, quite frequently, appears on magazine covers and on talk shows. She, or someone from "her team", ought to realize that, when that's the case, you can't go around saying and doing whatever you want. It is her mouth, but she can't say what she wants to. Cyrus wants to have her cake (sing songs about drugs; grind on older dudes) and eat it too (grace the cover of one of the most prestigious fashion magazines). Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. Miley's VMA performance may have hurt her career more than she realizes.
Now. Let's see if Robin Thicke gets blacklisted from the magazine as well.
What do you think of Miley's Vogue cover being cancelled?
