Last night at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley Cyrus was expected to take the stage to accept the Ultimate Choice Award which is reserved only for those most worthy of teen choosees. However, Miley pulled a last minute no-show to the shock and disappointment of thousands of teen choosers.
According to People:
Miley Cyrus was set to accept the Teen Choice Awards‘ highest honor on Sunday, so her eleventh hour cancellation was both disappointing and shocking to fans.
Presenter Victoria Justice took to the stage early in the show to announce “last minute Miley Cyrus couldn’t make it here tonight,” drawing gasps and boos from the crowd.
“I know, I know,” Justice said. “It’s a bummer.”
Miley blamed an “unrealistic schedule” for her inability to attend the ceremony. Instead she posted an apology to fans via Instagram and used the opportunity to promote her latest single Younger Now.
To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox ! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward ! I am beyond bummed I couldn't make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor! I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I've been tryin to keep the secret but I can't hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday , Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I'm thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE! ❤️💙💚💛💜❤️💙💚💛💜
As we know, Miley Cyrus has done a 180 on her image, trying to erase her walk on the wild side and make us forget about that fucking tongue (#neverforget). To that end, it looks like her chosen path is through a process of rapid regression that would make Benjamin Buttons’ head spin. Miley’s message says of her new single (Via People):
“I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you!” she said. “I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I’m thankful everyday for those who listen!”
Miley, likely alluding to the horror show that happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, also farted out the mildest of meaningless milquetoast messages. Via People:
“I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!”
You know who did manage to show up at the Teen Choice Awards? It’s your boi, newly single and ready to mingle Chris Pratt! People reports:
Pratt wore a casual outfit of jeans and leather jacket and was noticeably not wearing his wedding ring when he accepted his award. The actor joked about the lies he had to tell when he first moved to Hollywood before giving thanks to his “Lord and savior Jesus Christ” for getting him where he is today.
Classic Chris Pratt, proving once again that Jesus shoutouts aren’t reserved exclusively for the BET Awards. Chris was at the awards presenting with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 costar Zoë Saldana and walked away the surfboard for Choice Action Movie Actor and Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor. I look forward to next years ceremony where Miley will have regressed to a fetal stage and Chris Pratt is newly divorced from his third wife, in accordance with Jesus’ plan.
