Clad in western-themed outfits, Madonna and Miley Cyrus performed together for the first time yesterday on MTV’s Unplugged. The two joined forces for Madonna’s “Don’t Tell Me” and Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop.”
According to E! Online, “there was a fair amount of bumpin’ and grinding between the two envelope-pushing artists,” with Cyrus impishly slapping the 55-year-old star’s backside multiple times during the two takes.
Accompanied by two backup singers and a five-piece band, Cyrus performed 11 songs, including most of her own album Bangerz and a cover of Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ for an audience of around 220. Scandal stars Darby Stanchfield and Guillermo Diaz sat in the front row.
E! Online reported that Cyrus opened her show in a “red and white checked bodysuit, white cowboy boots, blond bob wig, and white cowboy hat,” before changing into a blue denim ensemble for her performance with Madonna.
“That was pretty f–king cool, you guys,” Cyrus told E! Online. “It sounds super-lame, but as a pop star it’s pretty cool performing with Madonna…Today was one of those days that it was really easy to get out of bed.”
Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged airs tonight at 9 P.M. on MTV.
