Twerk or treat! After stunning viewers in August with her very own moment of MTV infamy, it comes as no surprise that Miley Cyrus has dedicated this year’s Halloween to reviving another: Lil’ Kim’s unforgettable purple pasty outfit from the 1999 VMAs! But before you chalk up Miley’s costume homage as another publicity stunt, you might be surprised to know that Kim and Miley actually share an amazing friendship.
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Lil’ Kim at her Gramercy Theatre show in New York City in April, where she opened up about her bond with the “Wrecking Ball” singer and revealed a future music collaboration.
"We always have fun," Kim dished to Wetpaint with a smile. “We support each other and we’re supposed to be doing something together with her as well, so look forward to that!"
Wait – a Kimmy and Miley collabo you say? Yup, that’s correct! "[Miley] sent me and my protégée artist Tiffany Foxx a really, really fun song," the Brooklyn emcee teased. Sounds like a guaranteed “banger” if you ask us!
Kim also assured us that Miley isn’t solely about the twerking and tongue-wagging that we see on TV. "She’s just so different from what people would think,” the hip hop legend explained. “She’s so real. I love the realness."
So did Kim also love Miley’s Halloween homage?
It looks like Kim gives her homegirl’s pasty two resounding thumbs up! “Looking gorgeous!” she tweeted Miley on Thursday. “I wish I was there to squeeze your boob.”
Hmm! Do you guys think Kim should dress up as Diana Ross this year to complete the reenactment? Sound off in the comments below!
