Quotables: Miley Cyrus Has The Dumbest Thoughts on The King

"Elvis, he wasn't wearing the outfits I was wearing but he was coming out and he was doing like the OG twerking... Like, no one wants to admit that he was twerking, he was. He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex but no one would have ever called Elvis a s--- because he wasn't a girl. It's that double standard and I think I'm doing something for the double standard."
--Miley Cyrus claims that Elvis Presley twerked, and what is even happening in this world?
There are just no words for where Miley Cyrus is at right now in her evolution of bizarreness. It's obvious what she's trying to do, of course, she's trying to get important conversations started about feminism and equality, and that's admirable, it really is. It's just that Elvis never twerked. He was not doing "like the OG twerking." Of course he was a sex symbol, but to say that Elvis twerked is like saying ... I don't know, I can't even think of anything more preposterous than the notion that Elvis twerked.
Maybe just try to make some sense next time, Miley. Just really go for it, all right? It would really do us all a world of good.
