According to an Oct. 31 report by Just Jared, Miley dressed up like rapper Lil' Kim by donning a purple wig and a sparkly pasty on one breast. Last year Miley paid homage to Lil' Kim's nemesis, Nicki Minaj, so it will be interesting to hear Harajuku Barbie thinks about Miley's latest look. Will she feel betrayed? Will she criticize Miley's attempts at twerking and her flat backside in a future song? Miley's costume might lead to the next big music beef.
At least Lil' Kim has Miley's back. "Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!!" she tweeted. "Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love U so much !!!! #mytwin." In case you don't recall, Diana Ross gave Lil' Kim's boob a little pat when the female rapper wore her revealing pasty/onesie combo to the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.
Maybe Miley Cyrus was using her Halloween costume choice to remind everyone that she's not the only musician to do something controversial at the MTV VMAs. She obviously loves to court controversy, so at least she didn't pull a Julianne Hough by donning blackface to complete her look. Miley also could have poked fun at Sinead O'Connor's criticism of her VMAs performance by completely shaving her head and dressing up in a "slutty Sinead" costume—this would have irked the Irish singer since her main complaint about Miley is that the young singer is being too sexual.
Lil' Kim should definitely feel flattered that Miley Cyrus chose to dress up like her. After all, Miley is currently the Queen of Halloween in Hollywood. Her MTV VMAs outfit seems to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes of the year, with multiple celebrities dressing up like her. Paris Hilton, Crystal Harris, and Joan Rivers have all rocked different variations of Miley's look. You can check them out in the slideshow above.
Do you like Miley Cyrus's Lil' Kim Halloween costume, or were you hoping that she'd choose something even crazier?
