We’re Having A Hard Time Believing That This Woman On Instagram Isn’t Miley Cyrus

Brings a whole new meaning to "just being Miley."

Meet Mardee Shackleford. She looks like this:

No, that’s not Miley Cyrus. She looks like this:

But you have to admit they DO look very similar. The 21-year-old California waitress claims that it’s totally by chance, and the two merely share similar tastes and styles.

“Though I post photos with my tongue out, that’s a pose I have been doing all my life and I am comfortable with,” she tells the Daily Mail. See?

I'm liking the textures in my hair right about now Easy AF to style so it's perfect for me.

The first time she realized the extent of the resemblance was when Billy Ray Cyrus pointed it out at one of Miley’s concerts. Interesting.

He wasn’t the only person who thought they looked similar. Mardee later went on to win $2,500 at a Miley Cyrus look-alike contest in Chicago.

It makes a lot of sense considering they both self-identify as “hippies,” and enjoy lounging in the (almost) buff. Case in point:

They also have a habit of appearing on the cover of Paper Magazine.

And they both love America.

It's a party in the U-S-A! #IndependenceDay #itssobright #squintyeyes

And style choices that we don’t totally understand.

I was trying to take down my Halloween decorations, but the spiders got me! D:

All in all, we think they could be friends. Or possibly the same person. Or maybe it’s a Parent Trap situation. You be the judge.
