In a new video posted on her mileyworld.com web site, 16-year-old pop star Miley Cyrus claims that the fact that she was recently photographed wearing an Iron Maiden does not mean that she is "a poser."
In the clip she says: "I'm sure you all have seen me rocking an Iron Maiden shirt lately and I know there's been some people saying, 'Oh, she's a poser' and 'The only reason she's wearing Iron Maiden is because she wants to be a rock star… So, Iron Maiden — ‘Run to the Hills,' 'Fear of the Dark,’ ‘Running Free,’ [all] good song(s), check it out. So thank you, guys. I actually do like Iron Maiden."
Is Miley telling the truth about her love for the legendary metal band? We aren't buying it!
In this segment from the otherwise unbearable nine-minute video, it seems as though Miley briefly looks away from the camera, down and to her right, before every mention of an Iron Maiden song she supposedly digs...as if the song titles are written on a cue card off camera. When her friend announces “Sanctuary” as her personal favorite, she too looks away from the camera to the right before mentioning the song.
Watch it here and decide for yourself:
Miley claims to not be a poser for wearing a Maiden shirt, but from our perspective, this bit of cue-card-reading in the name of all that is holy and metal is the very definition of posing!
Nice try, Hannah…"nobody’s perfect," indeed!
