Miley Cyrus Christened A Tree

6 comments

At some point between her VMA performance and wrapping plastic dolls in her hair, Miley Cyrus hit the point where she no longer shocked us.

There's only so many times you can surround yourself with phallic peripherals before the audience says, "Okay: We get it." What she now lacks in sensationalism, though, she makes up for in Instagrams. Indeed, her account is a veritable treasure trove of all things strange and interesting. Take, for example, her documentation of a recent camping trip near Nashville. While some celebrities would share a more stylized, editorial photograph of their relationship with nature (hi, Taylor Swift), Cyrus opted for the real-world depiction of what roughing it really means. Namely, peeing in the woods.

It's a curious thing to see Cyrus with her pants around her ankles. In a way, it feels more intimate than when we've seen her nearly naked on stage. What's so intriguing about this particular snap is how downright philosophical it is. This Instagram challenges us with an age-old question: If Miley Cyrus pees in the woods, and no one's around to photograph it, did it really happen? (HuffPost)
