This really is the Fashion Week that keeps on giving. As if Jeremy Scott's show on Wednesday wasn't already going to be — and we mean this in the best way possible — completely insane, the presentation will also serve as the venue for Miley Cyrus's debut as a visual artist. Keep breathing.
The singer has apparently been using her down time to craft a series of collaged sculptures, hereafter referred to as "artwerks," cobbled together with cheery objects like children's toys, tiny teddy bears, curly straws and a vibrator. Cyrus has dubbed it her "Dirty Hippie" collection, which, sure. Somewhere James Franco is nodding approvingly.
To be fair, we should have seen this coming. Remember that 5-foot bedazzled bong Cyrus Instagrammed a few weeks ago? The one with a lightshow at the bottom and a dinosaur and giant beads spelling out "DRUGZ" and also a donut with googly eyes? That's one of the pieces in her oeuvre.
Charmingly ridiculous as her sculptures are, Cyrus's artistic leaning comes from a pretty real place. In an interview with V, the singer explained that her creations were a way of coping with a particularly tough year.
"I’ve always been so fucking lucky. Everything has always just been easy for me. And 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... Everything just kept shitting on me and shitting on me. So then I started taking all of those shit 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 fucking junk and shit, and so instead of letting it be junk and shit, I turned it into something that made me happy."
So you know what? Right on. You can bet we'll be reporting back on Wednesday after Jeremy Scott's show.
