A Miley Cyrus promo might be quirky, but its also brilliant. Cyrus (not topless) is set to appear on MTV's "Unplugged" on Jan. 29. The news about the "Bangerz" singer's special appeared on an episode of "Teen Wolf," but Cyrus took things to another level and proved she is a walking promotion genius, citing a Jan. 21 CNN report.

The Cyrus promo appeared on the star's Instagram Monday. It showed Cyrus wearing a blonde wig, a set of false buckteeth , a yellow bow around her neck, and a floppy black hat with matching arm-length gloves. It was nearly a topless photo had it not been for the star pasties on her breasts.

A statement for Miley's MTV special read:

'Unplugged,' of course, is the 25-year-old MTV franchise that's given us memorable performances from the likes of Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Jay Z, Korn, and dozens more. As with many of those earlier iterations, the network teases in a press release that the Miley edition will "showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus and feature surprise guests for an unexpected re-invention of the songs that have defined her career, including several from her #1 critically acclaimed album, Bangerz."

The "Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged" special on TV will highlight the singer's multiple dimensions as an artist and show fans a totally different side to her vocals.

Miley's vision for the performance is like nothing we've ever seen. I can say that this will easily be one of the most memorable 'Unplugged' performances to date," said Amy Doyle, Executive VP of Music and Talent Programming Strategy for MTV.

MTV's "Unplugged" debuted 25 years ago on November 26, 1989. Artists, Syd Straw, Elliot Easton, and Squeeze were tapped to launch the show and American singer-songwriter, Jules Shear, hosted the first 13 episodes.

Since then, entertainers like Lil Wayne, Katy Perry, Adele, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Mariah Carey, and Jay Z, to name a few, have appeared on the popular MTV series.
