Miley Cyrus Asks People What They Think Of Miley Cyrus, But She's Not The First Celeb To Go Incognito — VIDEO
Her best friend Leslie says, "She's just being Miley," but this time, Miley Cyrus was actually pretending to be someone else. The pop star went undercover as an Australian reporter named Janet, and what did she do? Miley Cyrus asked people what they think about Miley Cyrus. (By the way, she has this incredible Australian accent as she does it. She must have developed it during the years she was engaged to Liam Hemsworth. That breakup hit me really hard; I'm glad they both seem to be doing quite well.) Cyrus is such a huge pop culture figure that everyone knows, and has known for years, so the results were particularly hilarious.
One guy, who, naturally, was wearing a cowboy hat, said, "The whole fabric of America is falling apart and she's not doing anything to keep it together." When asked if he would have a problem with Miley Cyrus being his daughter, a nice guy said, "No, no problem. I just like Taylor Swift better." Cyrus even twerked in character with two young fans, and, when someone caught on to the fact that she looked like Miley Cyrus, she opened her shirt and said, "Does this look like Miley Cyrus? These are Miley Cyrus' t*tties."
It was a hilarious segment, and also interesting to catch a glimpse of how self-aware Cyrus is. She took all the criticism she had heard and made jokes about it, which is really awesome and inspiring. Of course, she's far from the first celebrity to have gone undercover. Check out her segment below, and then take a trip down memory lane to visit some other favorites.
Drake goes one step further and asks people on the street how they feel about specific things that Drake has done, like show a sex tape during his performance at Coachella — but all the things he's asking them about are fake. It's amazing what people think they remember hearing about.
This has to be the most pleasurable prank of all time. I would love to see a reboot of Punk'd hosted by Tatum.
The lesser-known half of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis didn't even go undercover when he asked fans what they thought of him — they didn't know who he was to begin with. "You just got Lewised!"
The notoriously tough chef decided to go undercover to make sure he got the full experience, that a "cookery course" wouldn't have been different in his presence.
Ellen Degeneres got soccer player-slash-cologne visionary David Beckham to dress up as an employee at Target and spray people with his own fragrance. Some people caught on.
At the height of his fame, Jonas took on a shift at Forever 21 with the cameras rolling. A lot of people pointed out the likeness, so he said things like, "I get that a lot," "the Jonas Brothers are lame," and "My mom is Jewish, so I got the curly hair."
To raise money for after-school health and fitness programs, Schwarzenegger went undercover as a trainer and manager at Gold's Gym. When someone said, "You look familiar to me," he quickly responded, "Maybe you saw me on the FBI most wanted list."
What's the moral of this story? Be kind to everyone you meet, because the could be a celebrity in disguise.
