Pursed lipped woman who is judging you, Anna Wintour has reportedly responded like most of the world did to Miley Cyrus‘ VMA performance, but has used her publishing power to destroy what would have been an amazing cover of Vogue‘s December issue, canning the plan to set Miley Cyrus’ in the much coveted spot. It’s a decision that nobody will contest, because as this gif accurately suggests—when you replace “fashion” with “me”, Anna Wintour—everyone trembles at the thought of looking Wintour in the eyes that may or may not exist behind her near-permanent sunglasses:
news.com.au and Gawker report that Anna Wintour apparently doesn’t have the taste for twerking, teddy bears and Beetlejuice that we naturally all assumed she did, reporting that “Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.” Just you wait, Anna Wintour, Miley’s performance will be looked back on in 50 years as the avant garde performance that defined a generation and THEN who will be the distasteful one? Kidding. It won’t define anything.
Meanwhile, what’s Miley Cyrus up to since we last checked in on Twerk Watch? Basically, if her Twitter is anything to go by, she’s planning something crazy drastic when she reaches 14 million followers. Twerk naked? Stop twerking? The world waits.
WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I GET TO 14 MILL?
