Miley Cyrus is always willing to take a risk. From her live performances to her music videos, she always is pushing boundaries and creating buzz about her hair, her clothes or lack of both. No matter what the critics say, Miley always seems to be having a good time changing up her style. From girl next door to sexy misfit on a wrecking ball, Miley always looks incredible.
Today’s brash and illicit images in the media have completely desensitized the minds of music lovers. Nicki Minaj‘s overtly sexual “Anaconda” art cover sparked initial shock but quickly blew over once people realized seeing a person’s butt wasn’t anything new.

Well, yes and no. It’s still a big deal when Rihanna shows up to a red carpet basically naked in a sheer dress but we’ve seen Cher do that at the Oscars more than 20 years ago. Check out original controversial music moments that paved that way for outrageous moments today.
