(NY Times) She’ll have to get used to the double-takes, but Miley Cyrus couldn’t be happier with her new, edgy ‘do. The “Party in the U.S.A.” singer shocked fans when she debuted a bold new haircut on Twitter late Sunday night after dropping vague hints throughout the day. “Tick tock tick tock,” she wrote at one point. “It’s happening,” she teased, along with a photo of hairstylist Chris McMillan just about to lop off her famous bun. And finally: “If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. My hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye :)” Cyrus, 19, then debuted her new look, a platinum blond pixie cut with longer bangs just skimming her brows. “Never felt more me in my whole life,” she wrote, posting a few shots of herself mugging for the mirror.
Well, I wish I could say I’m surprised but it was only a matter of time. Hot, teen celebrities begin to notice that their careers are starting to make the move to the back burner and feel the need to take drastic actions to remain relevant in the public eye. And now the latest story surrounding this fiasco is that she donated her hair to charity. I don’t know what to believe anymore. If she did or she didn’t donate it, one thing is for sure; it was NOT the reason she chopped it off in the first place. My guess would be that it’s some PR cover up to keep the ‘meltdown’ headlines surfacing. Well it’s too late, Miley. I’m on to you. The more mainstream version of this kind of meltdown that we see every now and then is a chick giving herself the infamous ’bangs’ haircut. I literally have yet to see an average chick that wasn’t already a smokeshow pull off the ‘bangs’ look. Liam Hemsworth definitely got the short end of the stick in this one. He will always be wondering if he could have just bought her another purse dog like normal, hot celebrities do when they get those crazy feelings and in order to completely avoid feeling like he was banging Draco Malfoy for the next 2 years. But in the end, it’s stories like these that make me realize even more why I need a female writing for Pucking Sports. We need someone that can make sense of why someone as hot as Miley would ever feel the need to do this to herself. We can go ahead and chalk up Miley’s head to the biggest casualty of Shark Week thus far.
