Feel free to go ahead and blame it on dirty dancing: Miley Cyrus will no longer be on the cover of Vogue , and it's all twerking's fault. To be honest — it's more surprising that Miley Cyrus was actually going to be on the cover of Vogue in the first place, but OK, I'll go with it. Here are the deets: According to this report in the New York Daily News, American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has cut Cyrus from the cover which declared her the "the next fashion icon," after seeing her twerk-tastic MTV VMAs performance, foam finger dick, Robin Thicke, and all.
Sidenote, how amazing is the very thought of Anna Wintour actually sitting down and watching the MTV VMAs?
"Anna found the whole thing distasteful," a source explained, despite the fact that Anna Wintour seems like the type of person to flay anyone who speaks to the press about her. "She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction." So, probably just Blake Lively again.
First Cyrus's relationship with Liam Hemsworth is reported to be on the rocks because of twerking, and now it's lost her a Vogue cover? Can we all just collectively decide that twerking is over, before someone gets seriously hurt or something?
UPDATE: Nevermind, Miley Cyrus will still be on the cover of Vogue because "to reverse course now, even for the December issue, would throw a wrench in the magazine’s production that even Wintour doesn’t have the power, or desire, to do." Good to know.
