Miley Cyrus Invited to Marine Corps Ball
These days, you’re not really a celebrity unless you’ve been asked to attend the Marine Corps Ball by an active member of the military. The latest to receive such an invite is teen pop star Miley Cyrus.
In a video posted on YouTube this week, a Marine named PFC Hart asks Cyrus to be his date for the southern California ball in November. He smartly bookends his request with audio clips from Miley’s smash hit ‘Party in the USA.’
Cyrus has demonstrated her support of the troops before, incorporating military families into ‘Hannah Montana,’ so we can’t wait to see if she says yes.
The trend of celebs attending the Marine Corps Ball began when Mila Kunis accepted Sgt. Scott Moore’s date invite for the ball in North Carolina. After she happily accepted, her ‘Friends with Benefits’ co-star, Justin Timberlake, soon found himself with a similar invite. He joked, “I don’t feel backed into a corner at all,” and said he’d love to go if the event fits his schedule.
The only noteworthy celeb to turn down a Marine Corps Ball invite so far is America’s favorite octogenarian actress, Betty White, who had to decline because of work commitments.
