Well, this explains why Elle Editor in Chief Robbie Myers was tweeting from the "Bangerz" tour at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night.
Miley Cyrus revealed on Twitter over the weekend that she is the May 2014 cover star of Elle magazine. The pop star, who's already covered a handful of American magazines this year -- including Elle's Hearst sister magazine Cosmopolitan in March -- is featured to celebrate the glossy's annual Women in Music issue, alongside other major musicians like Lily Allen and Cher.
The spring 2014 face of Marc Jacobs, Cyrus is unsurprisingly wearing a head-to-toe look from the designer's fall collection: An embroidered tunic and matching flare pants that were up for pre-order on Moda Operandi for a whopping $13,400.
With her rabid social media following and tendency to promote her covers on Twitter and Instagram, Cyrus is becoming an increasingly popular choice of cover girl among editors -- the singer sold more than 1.1 million newsstand copies when she covered Cosmopolitan's March issue last year -- and we're willing to bet that this issue of Elle will fly off the shelves once it hits newsstands.
Elle isn't the only magazine cover Cyrus landed this month: She's also the cover star of Seventeen. However, Cyrus reportedly did not consent to the cover, and the teen glossy was forced to use stock imagery for its profile. Spokespeople for Seventeen and Hearst did not immediately respond for comment.
UPDATE: A rep for Seventeen released the following statement regarding the May cover story: "Seventeen readers love Miley Cyrus and they've been begging for her to be on our cover. She ranked high on the March issue’s Girl Power List – her independence and confidence make her an icon for this generation. Miley’s currently on tour promoting ‘Bangerz’ so what better time than now to celebrate her and give our readers what they want."
