Miley Cyrus Quits Cigarettes but Here 5 Other Habits She Might Consider, As Well
It looks like Miley Cyrus is starting to kick some of her bad habits. The pop star, who recently headlined her first MTV Unplugged with special guest star Madonna and is W magazine's latest cover girl, tweeted on Monday afternoon that she was proud of herself for quitting smoking. We're proud too, Miley, we're proud too. According to her tweet, the Bangerz singer's gone two months without smoking a cigarette. She may not care that you aren't buying her album, but she definitely cares about keeping those impressive vocal chords in mint condition.
And that's a damn good thing, considering the "Wrecking Ball" singer sounded great during her Miley Cyrus: Unplugged special. At least it seems like she's going to take care of the impressive talent she's got — even if she regularly buries it under twerking and other off-the-charts antics. It remains to be determined whether or not the Cyrus is giving up smoking weed, as well. The singer told Ronan Farrow in her March 2014 W interview, "I love weed. I just love getting stoned. I just want it to be back to where it's, like, organic, good weed." I mean, as long as it's organic.
We're not going to say that smoking weed isn't a bad habit — but we will say that there are 5 other habits (that don't include smoking weed) that we'd be #proud of Miley if she gave those up too.
1) MALIBU & GATORADE
Girl, you're 21 now. You don't need to drink Malibu and Gatorade because A) that's kind of gross (even though we get the appeal of electrolytes) and B) you could just order a beer. You'd also probably have less of a hangover if you drank something simple like a vodka tonic. JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU OUT, GIRL.
2) THE TONGUE
We get it, you have a great tongue — not too big, not too small, not too pointy, not too wide — it's just right for you and you want the world to see it. But it's getting kind of old and controlling your tongue is probably important for singing and maintaining acceptable diction. You might start to have problems if you let it wag all over the place whenever it wants. It was out-there and "shocking" at the beginning but now it's just whatever, so it's time to give it up. And anyway, didn't your mom ever tell you, "If you keep doing that, it'll get stuck that way"?
3) TALKING ABOUT THE VMAs
MILEY YOU'RE SO TALENTED JUST LET IT GO. Seriously, you need to learn that your VMAs performance, while "making history" and being "groundbreaking", it was also distracting as hell from the fact that you're actually talented. And every time you talk and wax poetic about it in an interview, I forget a little bit more about how talented you really are. That should bother you, Miley — not because I feel that way (trust me, I know my opinion isn't the be all end all) but because I can't be the only one that feels that way. You did it, it was shocking/weird/uncomfortable/out of the box, and now it's over so stop talking about it. PLEASE.
You did it, you overshadowed Lil' Kim and Janet Jackson in the pasty-covered nipple department. Congratulations — you rock. But now that you've done almost everything you could possibly do in terms of nipple-exposure, it might be time to put those babies away. We're not saying to do it for good — maybe in a few years it'll be the right time to put them on display again — but for right now, give them a rest. They're probably tired and they just want to take some time away from the cameras.
5) TWEETING ABOUT BEING "EMO"
C'mon Miley, you should know better. Neither of these things are "#emo". There are lots of early 2000s "emo" kids that are going to show up with their torches and pitchforks at your front door if you keep this up.
