Attention lovers of controversy: Miley Cyrus has said she will perform in Israel next summer, Channel 2 has reported.
Apparently still in the discussion stages, the television station that broke the story says Cyrus’s “people” are in advanced planning stages for the show. They say the performance will be on a smaller scale than Rihanna’s October performance, but there is no doubt it will stir some controversy.
The twerking queen, who actually coined the term, now officially in the Oxford English Dictionary, has been transforming her image in recent months.
Leading up to the release of her latest album, Bangerz, Cyrus has quite aggressively transformed her squeaky-clean Hannah Montana image to a non-pants-wearing-midriff-bearingtongue- sticker-outer, and everyone has something to say about it.
In an October interview with the website Hunger TV, Cyrus spoke of how she is the authority on what her audience wants to see, and that too often creative decisions are made by people who are out of touch.
Jewish and out of touch, to be more specific.
“It’s always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old,” she said. “It can’t be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear.”
Sorry to break it to you Hannah Montana, but you’ll be seeing a lot of them if you come to Israel next summer.
