There will likely be little to no twerking from Miley Cyrus tonight.
The singer took the opportunity to tease her dad Billy Ray Cyrus ahead of Sunday’s 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, throwing back to her now infamous 2013 VMA performance with a hilarious photo featuring her dancing with Robin Thicke — manipulated to have Billy Ray’s face included in the image, looking on disapprovingly.
“Sorry Dad…. I’ll be good tonight I promise … @vmas,” wrote Miley, 24.
The provocative 2013 performance, set to Thicke’s hit “Blurred Lines,” went down in history for everything from the then-20-year-old Cyrus’ barely-there ensemble and foam finger, to grabbing her crotch and twerking on Thicke while sticking out her tongue — moves that would become signature throughout her Bangerz era.
Miley’s younger sister Noah Cyrus is also nominated at the show tonight, hoping to take home the trophy for best new artist.
“Or your style or the way that you think because you want to please people,” she added. “I really hope that she never feels those pressures and I hope other people respect her and don’t actually make her something she’s not.”
