Quotables: Miley Cyrus Has The Dumbest Thoughts on The King

8/31/2014 7:00 AM PDT, by
"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.

Someone needs to tell that idiot that Elvis was not allowed to be filmed from the waist down because of his gyrating and that he was called "Elvis Pelvis" and there was a firestorm about his inappropriate gyrations! She's such an ass. At 21 she should be far more mature and able to do some sort of research before she opens that stupid mouth of hers. Just like the homeless situation. All for her. Next month will she even remember there are homeless teens?

Get over yourself, Miley. Don't compare yourself to Elvis, ever, and there was no double standard, he got hell back in the day for swinging his hips. He looked sexy, you look like a kid trying to be sexy and with little success. Mostly, you look like a fool.

If Elvis twerked, he wouldn't have been the legend that he is. Which should tell you where your career is going Miley. And don't you ever make any comparison of yourself to elvis. Elvis was a mega talent and you have to show your ass to get attention.

As much as people love to hate her, she's not really that bad. At least she's not part of The Fappening.

She's a visionary. An artist. An idiot. But not in that order.

To paraphrase r. Reagan, honey you're no Elvis. You couldn't fill his blue suede shoes. Tweaking because your talent is limited is a far cry from swivelling your hips because it is simply a part of you are two completely different things. One is for nothing but attention, the other already had everyone's attention.

This little twat didn't start sticking her tongue out until AFTER she got those chicklets glued into her face.
She's just spewing out word that she thinks makes her sound important.
We see through your BS Miley.

Doesn't this chick have some new flip flops to go get at Walmart or something? She really should stop talking. Elvis was a very controversial sex symbol in his day everyone knows that. I wasn't alive then either but I know that. Why doesn't she? Someone please cancel Hannah Montana. lol
