Miley Cyrus dressed up as Lil Kim for Halloween, wearing a replica of the Queen Bee’s daring 1999 MTV Video Music Awards outfit. The 20-year old “Wrecking Ball” singer had the outfit down pat, sporting a purple wig and a revealing purple one-shoulder jumpsuit with the matching pasty.
Miley shared a “selfie” photo of her costume with her Twitter followers Thursday (Oct. 31), including Lil Kim who appeared to be flattered by the tribute. The Grammy award winning hip-hop legend retweeted Miley’s Halloween post, approving the outfit. “Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love U so much !!!! #mytwin,” @LilKim wrote in a tweet.
Miley has received a slew of criticism recently for pushing the envelope with her recent 2013 Video Music Awards performance. No stranger to controversy herself, the moment Lil Kim appeared on stage at the 1999 VMAs rocking the purple jumpsuit is one of the most memorable moments in MTV history.
Lil Kim debuted her new single, “Dead Gal Walking” to coincide with Halloween. The new track is from her upcoming Hardcore 2k13 mixtape, set to be released on Black Friday, November 29. “Don't become a dead girl or dead man walking. Live your life right,” Lil Kim told MTV News, discussing the track’s message.
