VH1 DIVAS: Miley Cyrus Leaves The Crowd Wanting More, More, More After Her Pyrotastic “Rebel Yell” Performance (VIDEO)

Yesterday afternoon, we presented to you with 5 Reasons Why Miley Cyrus Was Born To Cover Billy Idol. At only 20 years old, Miley Cyrus was not even born when the sneertastic Billy Idol first released “Rebel Yell” in 1983, but it’s safe to say that after tonight’s explosive performance on VH1 DIVAS, the song belongs to her now! (At least for tonight, that is…)

Miley came out wearing an ensemble clearly inspired by the British punk/pop legend: Black leather jacket and pants, each adorned with the metal studs that Idol was rarely seen without. It goes without saying that Cyrus showed off way more midriff than Billy ever did, but hey, SHE’S JUST BEING MILEY! As she wrapped her pyro-laden performance, she said “That was for you, Lila,” paying tribute to her puppy that sadly died earlier this week. In a moment you didn’t see on TV, she came off the stage with her fists pumped screaming “YEAH BITCHES!!!”

Now, when the song and music video for the track that made British punk rocker Billy an MTV icon dropped in 1984, the future Mrs. Liam Hemsworth was like negative nine years old. But generation gap be damned, the similarities between the two stars is kind of hard to ignore. Here are five reasons Miley is the perfect choice to cover this tune:

#1 – The Hair

The spiky platinum blonde coif Miley’s sporting is looking a little familiar. I wouldn’t bat an eyelash if she suddenly revealed she’s actually Billy Idol’s estranged daughter. When she first went blonde and sheared her signature brown tresses over the summer, people were critical of her P!nk-like pixie. So Miley did what any rebel would do. She went and shortened it more, more, more. Read more…
