Miley Cyrus is having a moment.
The former child star just won her first Grammy, which then turned into her second Grammy, with Cyrus picking up both the Best Pop Solo Performance and the prestigious Best Record of the Year for her hit song 'Flowers'.
She also had quite the evening, rocking up in a bedazzled gold dress with a Bridget Jones blowout, giving a high-energy (and rather rogue) performance of 'Flowers', and telling the crowd she 'forgot to wear underwear' as she accepted one of the 2024 Grammys biggest awards.
In previous years, Cyrus' chaotic antics may have induced eye-rolls from onlookers. But the thing is, Miley is passed the point of drawing outrage from people; she's been cancelled so many times, it's now part of her brand.
Cyrus' first controversy came in 2008 when a controversial Annie Leibovitz photoshoot featuring the then-15-year-old draped in a bedsheet appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Following swift backlash over the sexualisation of the underage Hannah Montana star, she released an apology. "I feel so embarrassed," she said in a statement at the time. "I never intended for any of this to happen, and I apologise to my fans, who I care so deeply about."
