Miley Cyrus used to be a Disney princess, but now she's getting compared to a Disney villain.
According to a Dec. 22 report by The Gloss, the pop star wore a real fur coat during her performance at Y100′s Jingle Ball in Sunrise, Fla. The site wrote, "Is Miley Cyrus angling for a new job? Disney is apparently working on a movie about Cruella de Vil, and the former Hannah Montana would not be a terrible choice for the title role." Actually, it's not hard to imagine Miley rocking Cruella's black and white hairstyle. However, it is hard to imagine the starlet skinning puppies to make a fur coat—she definitely loves her doggies.
Unsurprisingly, some animal rights activists called Miley out for wearing the real fur coat. According to Sugarscape, one critic tweeted, "Miley Cyrus shame on you for wearing fur you don’t now what animals go through for that coat might as well wear dogs." Another wrote, "Her poor dogs, bet she’ll skin them next to make a pair of booty shorts." So there have been a lot of comparisons to Cruella de Vil. If "Once Upon a Time" ever does decide to add the villain to show, perhaps the creators need to give Miley a call.
PETA has shown its love for Miley in the past by praising her for taking in rescue dogs, but surely the animal rights organization isn't going to be happy about her latest fashion statement. Miley is nearly-naked almost all of the time, so why did she suddenly decide to use a dead animal to cover up? Perhaps she did it to cause yet another scandal—she seems to thrive off of controversy.
Some celebs and wealthy women will argue that their furs are vintage, so no animals recently died to create them. However, continuing to wear fur keeps it in fashion, and it's a trend that just needs to die a horrible death like all the poor critters that were forced to become ugly coats. If Miley wants to wear the skin of something, maybe she should skin one those giant twerking teddy bears from her VMAs performance.
So do you think Miley was a fool to wear fur, and can you picture her as Cruella de Vil?
