UPDATE: It turns out that although a film featuring Miley Cyrus—which was originally created for her “Bangerz” tour—is showing at the NYC Porn Film Festival, the singer herself doesn’t have anything to do with the decision to screen the video. “Miley was proud to make a film with acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Jones,” Cyrus’ spokesperson told EW. “Neither she nor Quentin are participating in this ‘festival’ in any way.”
The NYC Porn Film Festival hasn’t responded to EW’s request for comment, but Cyrus’ film is no longer listed in the event schedule on the festival’s website.
ORIGINAL STORY: Miley Cyrus’ more recent work already veers into porn-like territory, between her nude ride on a wrecking ball and NSFW “Bangerz” tour antics, so it’s not too surprising that she’s showing a short film of herself clad in nothing more than black paint and tape at NYC’s upcoming Porn Film Festival.
A clip of the film, titled “Tongue Tied,” is circulating online, and is actually much tamer than what we’ve come to expect from the boundary-free star: She stands alone in front of a camera, contorting her body and—what else?—sticking out her tongue. Shot in black and white, the whole clip comes off as something you might see in a arthouse cinema.
“Tongue Tied” will be screening on the festival’s first day, Feb. 27. For more information, head to the NYC Porn Film Festival website.
