Miley Cyrus will be debuting her latest ‘artwork’ at Jeremy Scott’s New York Fashion Week this year. Yep, you heard us right.
She may be most famous for acting, singing, twerking and turning up at high-fashion bashes wearing nothing but ice-cream cone nipple tassles– but it turns out the 21-year-ol singer is actually something of an artist too.
In case you hadn’t paid a visit to her Instagram account lately, Miley’s been busying herself between shows by creating a colourful array of raver bracelets, sparkly hair accessories and giant cuddly-toy filled sculptures.
And now her eccentric creations are going to be previewed as a collection of collaged sculptures entitled “Dirty Hippie’ at Scott’s New York Fashion Week show tomorrow.
Cyrus explains that the artwork, co-created with legendary stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele, is mainly made of the things fans throw at the stage during her gigs. ‘Being on tour was a big part of this, too, because I picked up so much junk along the way’, the singer told V Magazine.
‘Jeremy brought a lot of peace and self-worth to me because even though to some people, it was just me gluing some things together, to me it made me not a f*cking pop star dumbass’, Miley added.
The big announcement comes after Jeremy, who also designed some of Miley’s Bangerz tour costumes, teased fans with news that he had teamed up with the controversial pop star on a new project.
‘This seems so f***ing lame to say but I feel like my art became kind of a metaphor— an example of my life’, Miley continued. ‘At the beginning of this year, I hated 2014 because everything that could go wrong kept going wrong.’
‘Being in the hospital, my dog dying… So then I started taking all of those sh** things and making them good, and being like, I’m using it. My brother and my friends all said that’s what they felt I was doing. So, that’s how I started making art. I had a bunch of junk, and instead of letting it be junk, I turned it into something that made me happy.’
Jeremy Scott’s NYFW show will take place on Wednesday 10th September.
