Billy Idol Actually Enjoyed Miley Cyrus’ Performance of ‘Rebel Yell’
He might be the only one, but he’s definitely the only one who counts. After watching Miley Cyrus‘ performance of ‘Rebel Yell,’ at ‘VH1 Divas’ Billy Idol tweeted about how much he dug the Billy Ray spawn’s rendition.
Cyrus’ rendition of Idol’s 1985 classic may not have been the greatest vocal performance from Miley, but what it lacked in vocals it made up for in sheer bravado. Miley was all over the stage, working the audience and even crowd surfing! (Honestly, we hope no one got hurt while she was doing that. Did you see the spikes on her leather jacket?)
Miley’s crotch-grabbing-centric performance at the annual VH1 concert was certainly a far deviation from her wholesome good girl persona. Can you imagine the collective brain aneurysm the executives at the Disney Network would have suffered had she performed ‘Dancing With Myself?’
We have a theory that Miley’s performance was a coming out party for a future of releasing rock-inspired music as opposed to a ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ Part 2. Whatever direction her next album takes, we know Cyrus will have Billy Idol’s blessing.
