No, Miley Cyrus, NO! You leave those innocent puppets alone! It’s bad enough that poor foam hand was dragged into your VMA performance two years ago. Haven’t humanoid hand-operated fabric objects been through enough?
But still, it sounds like someone really wants to see Miley up on stage at the MTV VMA’s on Sunday doing not-right things with puppets. In a surprising twist, it’s not actually Miley Cyrus who is pushing for it.
According to Page Six, Diane Martel – the director of Miley’s horny oldies rodeo video for “Younger Now” – was overheard complaining at at restaurant in Los Angeles that Miley’s team wouldn’t approve a concept Diane had for Miley’s appearance. Miley has a minute or two before a performance of “Younger Now,” and Diane reportedly claimed she envisioned Miley would fill the time with a “raunchy puppet show.”
Diane, who apparently considers herself “Miley’s creative director,” had a couple ideas. One included a puppet orgy. An orgy?! Does Diane know the VMA’s are broadcast on MTV, not HBO? Another involved having one of the puppets “sniff Miley’s privates” and make a joke about keeping it clean down there. Okay, if that happens, MTV might not want to follow with a commercial for Catfish; that kind of accidental innuendo might piss off the censors.
Sources say Diane was frustrated with Miley’s manager Adam Leber. He allegedly wasn’t feeling the puppet fucking, and wanted Miley to “make headlines” by using some of her time to make a statement about President Donald Trump instead. Diane allegedly hated that idea, and called Adam Leber a “stupid asshole manager.”
When reached for comment by Page Six, Diane Martel swore there’s no MTV VMA puppet drama and everything is fine.
“No friction! Excitement! Miley’s number will be surprising and emotional, her new song Younger Now is beautiful and contemplative and self written.”
A rep for the VMA’s didn’t respond to Page Six regarding Miley’s proposed concept.
Miley appears in the video for “Younger Now” with a puppet version of her much-younger self. I don’t want to know the road Diane took to get from that to puppet orgy. But she got there, and now that’s something that might happen. Miley might also talk about Trump. Okay, fine. I just really hope no one suggests combining the two ideas. I can handle a puppet orgy; I don’t think my stomach can handle a Donald Trump puppet getting his group sex freak on.
