VMAs Miley Cyrus Opening


Miley Cyrus opened the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday by revealing her secret process behind posting Instagram photos. If you think she just posts anything that comes to mind, you’re wrong. She’s got the greatest minds in social media pulling the strings, and pressing send. Watch the video below!

Cyrus came on stage and joked that the VMAs “hasn’t had a host for the last two years, a tradition that they’ll probably immediately return to following tonight’s show.” The pop star then went on to poke fun at herself about not being qualified to host. She added that MTV probably figured the easiest way to keep her from performing would be to have her host instead.

Cyrus then gave shout outs to the stars in the audience who would be performing later in the show, including Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and A$AP Rocky. She also pointed out that her entire family was sitting in the audience, but that “if it’s anything like Christmas, just be prepared for a fist fight down in the audience.”

Finally, Cyrus explained that the reason she didn’t put out an album in 2015 was that she took a year off from music “to focus on my true love… Instagram.” She added, “I just find that it’s a much easier way to express myself and connect with my fans. When it comes to my posts, everybody thinks that I just come up with some crazy ass sh*t and just post it, but it’s actually a lot more involved than that.”

Cyrus then showed a spoof video called “Miley’s Instagram Think Tank,” which featured the pop star being advised by a team of experts about how to post the best Instagram shots. Watch Cyrus’ funny MTV VMAs opening below, and tell us what you think. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
