Watch: Miley Cyrus Impersonates Rihanna At ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Performance

Published: Wednesday 26th Jun 2013 by David

While the likes of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera used their machines to push and promote meaningful and lasting numbers, Miley Cyrus seems hellbent on using her PR machine to present Hip Hop fuelled hypersexual version of herself…and it isn’t working.

Indeed, in whipping up a performance of the ‘try hard’ persuasion for Jimmy Kimmel Live, the would be bad girl found herself taking part in a poorly thought out Rihanna tribute….embarrassing on all fronts.

Watch ‘Hannah Montana’ in all her ‘black‘ glory below…

For all her troubles, one has to hand it to Britney for being able to take on Urban in the right way.

For, while ‘Boys‘ and ‘Blackout‘ saw her take the ‘genre’ and mark her stamp of ‘Premium‘ on it, Miley’s new stage act is one more ‘twerk’ away from officially being tacky.

Here’s hoping the success of Ariana Grande‘s R&B infused ‘The Way‘ encourages Miley to read up on the field more, and learn that ‘growing up’ as a musician doesn’t always have to mean ‘sexing up’ as a musician.

    she wants to be Rihanna so bad its pathetic i guess Rih has had some type of impact.

    • OVODasher June 26, 2013

      I want to like Miley but common sense won’t let me.

      • Lana The Legend June 26, 2013

        i agree i see right thru her BS…

      • LaLopez June 26, 2013

        She reminds me of that racist Iggy. I don’t care what color a person is, but I do care when they try and copy a sound and disrespect it at the same time. That’s why I use Mac Miller but will never use Iggy after she tried to come from my Latinas and blacks.

        Miley is cute and i like her and also she would make a great role model don’t you think Bey hive.

      • Jess June 26, 2013

        If Rihanna doesn’t even make a good role model. Why the f*** would Miley when she’s a carbon copy…Navy???

    • TruthSpeaker June 26, 2013

      Trying to be like Riri? Um ok, why didn’t you post a vid to support that ridiculous notion? Miley’s performance was actually pretty good but she should have waited until after her laryngitis cleared up. Her vocals surprised me up until her illness took over towards the end of it. She looks pretty damn good and she rocked the stage. Navy stans can kiss my ass, i don’t if you seedy sissies agree.

      • RIH ROX June 26, 2013

      i dont eeeeven have to watch the video. The mere fact that SAM is defendn Rhi and going in on Miley is all i need to know to know that Miley needs to sit the f*** down!! If she offended Sam enuff for him to DEFEND Rhi then Miley need the s*** slapped outta her. I wont even watch the video because i’d be tempted to find her and slap her myself and i don’t need more jail time honey.

  3. PRINCE CARTER FENTY June 26, 2013

    I like her song We Can’t Stop, But she needs to stop stealing Robyn’s bad girl image.

    • Oh Yeah!!! June 26, 2013

  6. C-SQUAD June 26, 2013

    Did y’all hear the news? Rihoenna is set to retire after her flop tour. Her record label are dropping her and her house has been foreclosed. Another report is Rihanna bleaches her skin. it’s no secret that her and Bleachonce hate being black and wants to be white. RIHYAWNNA is the biggest flop in music history. Ciara has ended her career. Queen Ciara is the QUEEN OF POP & R&B.

    • #Hive June 26, 2013

      Lol that made me laugh so hard im only laughing at u being a Ciara fan talkin s*** what impact did ciara have again,? Atleast r**** made a name for herself

  8. MIMI CAREY June 26, 2013

    Ariana isnt a TRY HARD like miley…. Shes obviously STEALING rihanna & nicki minaj style…..

    • Music June 26, 2013

  9. C-SQUAD June 26, 2013

  11. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 26, 2013

    Poor Hannah…


  12. Lovatic June 26, 2013

    She’s legit S***!!!!!


  13. rih rox June 26, 2013

    How is she impersonating Rihanna?
    Because she has Rihanna old hairstyle and outfits?

    I don’t get into the role model crap but Miley was considered more of a role model than Rihanna.

    Hannah Montana anyone?

    When Rihanna does something s*** and risky it’s either at her shows for her fans, music videos and her personal web pages. Rihanna however doesn’t do the risky stuff on the world stage where fans and non fans gather.

    • Oh Yeah!!! June 26, 2013

      Rihanna has stolen everyone’s hair styles!!! And no one says anything!
      1. Pink (Mohawk)
      2. Cassie (Shaved side of head)
      3. Victoria Beckham (Slanted Bob for GGGB era)
      4. Keisha Cole (Red Hair for Only Girl)
      5. Beyonce (Blonde and Darker hair! Hell she wants to be beyonce!)
      6. Fefe Dobson (Her whole bad girl image is a rip off of fefe!)

  14. Lana The Legend June 26, 2013

    Where the original b****** at tho?????? smh so many obvious copy cats in this industry.

  15. Lana The Legend June 26, 2013

    People are going to tear her to shreds with this era….. Now miley was a REAL role model the b**** was on Disney smh the backlash will be epic… just wait & see

  16. rih rox June 26, 2013

    wtf you’re late. you could see that slowly happen over couple months now. dunno if this a “clone badass image or bizness model” to get some rihanna type attention or to get some rep (lol) or this is the regular type of ex child popstars tryna look like grown up. look at bieber. the same badass kiddo.

    it’s all b*******. 😀

  23. Ke$has crazy kid June 26, 2013

    Tgj spoke the truth she is a try hard and her twerking is becoming extremely TIRED

  25. TeenageDreamer June 26, 2013

    Princess Superstar could never.

  26. rih rox June 26, 2013

    The media is going to make Miley very big.

    I wonder Why her fiance dumped her?

    I never cared for Miley but kinda knew bits and pieces like how she was engaged to that quiet low key Australian guy. Ever since she got the hair cut they grew distant. You could see it in pics of them out and about.

    Maybe he didn’t want to tread on the path she wanted to go so he let her go.

    Anyways Miley could be the next Britney.
    Christina – Britney
    Selena Gomez – Miley.

    I’m not talking about music, vocals. Just what the media might do.

  27. Molly June 26, 2013


  28. Molly June 26, 2013

    Selena Gomez is transforming into more of an artist & it looks more authentic coming for Selena then Mikey

    • Molly June 26, 2013


    • Music June 26, 2013

      When Selena actually writes her songs and is able to sing more than one octave then we can talk. Til then she’s no better than Miley. U ppl trip me out…

    • Lolax June 26, 2013


  29. rih rox June 26, 2013

    I Don’t know much about MK-ULTRA. But I’m Kinda open to that.

    I see that doll …does it have arms? And the doll is dressed like Miley too. I also notice the checkered floor.

  30. Belladonna June 26, 2013

    Get over it Sam!!!! Her song is Amazing she’s s*** as hell and the song is at Number2 on iTunes so as for that ( It’s not working for her comment) numbers don’t lie. Lol And againg it’s nothing wrong with wanting to be like Rihanna. Some people would like to be Beyonce & some one like to be Rihanna, she one that’s doing the RiRi thing. And it’s Work very well for her. Can’t wait for her album to come out!

    • Music June 26, 2013

      Sam is a dumbass. He won’t post artist’s work unless he likes it in some way. Same thing when he does to Rihanna.. Critiquing her yet still giving her exposure on his blogs.SMH. I can’t with the Fuckery on this site sometimes.

  31. Belladonna June 26, 2013

    Ok so I just watched the Video again and she is just a Super Star & I just love everything about her!! !!!!!!!!!! And she’s so got damn s*** like I’m did you see her in that outfit OMGGGGGGG! I love her & this song is blowing up every where so F the haters. Lol

  34. bam bam June 26, 2013

    She reminds me so much of Xtina right now (not because of talent) because she pulled this same thing back in the day. Remember when her tan put Snookie’s to shame and she was acting “black”. So just like Xtina this phase will not last and she will be back to the old Miley after this gimmick wears out….. #NoHateJustTruth

  35. Dev June 26, 2013

    This Rihanna inspired performance was rhythmless and cringe worthy (she might like to twerk up a storm but she can’t dance or even sway to the beat) but I’ll give her props that she didn’t sound any worse than she does on the record.
    No doubt the next single will be pink inspired no doubts.

  36. JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

    LOL Horrible. Having one Rihanna is bad enough, why two? lol
    Now seriously: this is crap crap crap, she is just nothing. Way worse than Rihanna.

    • Music June 26, 2013

      U don’t like her stop commenting. Simple.

    • ghhgcgchj June 26, 2013

      mooraih is an old fat cow who cant sing and can only wisper ugly fat trannybitch is worse than rihanna

  37. Music June 26, 2013

    Rihanna inspired or not don’t act like ur faves weren’t inspired by other artists too. I still like Miley as a singer and think she has potential as an artist. She’s still young just someone in her team needs to figure out how to market her brand better like she was on her way to doing during her cant be tamed and party in the usa days. Ppl hate on every little thing on this site tho so not surprised by the bitter comments most of the time. Oh well. she’s doing her thing and ignoring the haters like she said in her song. I commend her.

    • HONEY BEE June 26, 2013

      girl shud up

  38. Harpo Who Dis B****? June 26, 2013

    So Good to Know That Someone’s Keepin the Ugly Monkeys In Line On the Plantation While I’m Whippin The Help In My Mansion! Monica’s Breast Milk Gone Go Good With My Honey Nut Cheerios I’ll Sell Her Baby at The Next Monkey Auction I think 🙂

  39. xtinabitches June 26, 2013

    Get the f*** over what mileys doing. At least she has the voice to pull this s***.off. She’s having fun why take what she’s doing so serious. I actually like we can’t stop.all your comments are halarious. While you or.I are hating mileys busy doing what she’s born to do sing and entertain. For some.its just entertain and stay relevant cause they can’t sing at all to save their life..

  40. Navy Sailor June 26, 2013

    She could barely move in those heels 😆 She should go for a lower shoe next time…

  41. Lolax June 26, 2013

    She slay #proud

  42. XX June 26, 2013

    what was really so bad about this performance?

  43. Daydreamin June 26, 2013

    That was terrible. She can’t sing at all.

  44. rihking June 26, 2013

    After she made that ignorant ass comment about how she wants to do something that feels “more black I’ve been loosing a lot of respect and the fact that shes trying to act like something shes isn’t is making me lose even more respect.And she looks like a cheap lesbian.

  45. Gary C June 26, 2013

    I really like the song now. It’s a grower. The video though… too much.

  46. Oh Yeah!!! June 26, 2013

    Rihanna has stolen everyone’s hair styles!!! And no one says anything!
    1. Pink (Mohawk)
    2. Cassie (Shaved side of head)
    3. Victoria Beckham (Slanted Bob for GGGB era)
    4. Keisha Cole (Red Hair for Only Girl)
    5. Beyonce (Blonde and Darker hair! Hell she wants to be beyonce!)
    6. Fefe Dobson (Her whole bad girl image is a rip off of fefe!)

    Rihanna is a Copycat of everyone!
