Miley Cyrus, who was actually wearing clothing that was not overly revealing, performed on the 16 September episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. In the middle of her musical performance, Cyrus stopped to tell the host to keep his hands off her hair.
Cyrus stopped mid performance and joined social media to mention Fallon’s guest earlier in the week; Donald Trump. The show’s host has been getting slammed over the Internet about his “non” questioning of the presidential candidate.
Jimmy was also drug over the coals for mussing Trump’s hair.
The presidential hopeful was on the 15 September episode and he allowed Fallon to muss his hair. In keeping with the more light-hearted air of The Tonight Show, Jimmy kept away from contentious questions and joked about with Trump.
Over and above Cyrus’ career, is her political distaste for all things Donald Trump. She has joined a number of celebs who have stated they will leave the country if Trump is elected. Of course Miley also shed a tear just thinking about Donald being her president.
Before the song Cyrus and Fallon did not discuss politics at all. It was all about yoga, The Voice and suicide prevention.
Miley waited until she was singing her rendition of the Bob Dylan song “Baby, I’m in the Mood for You,” to broach the subject. In the middle of the performance, Miley stopped singing.
She then professed her pleasure at performing with The Roots and being in New York on The Tonight Show. Miley then mentioned Trump and told Fallon not to even “think” of touching her hair.
The controversial actress, singer and songwriter was safe from Fallon’s hair mussing hands so Jimmy was safe.
As a sidenote, Cyrus gave good interview and managed to keep the swearing to a minimum. She even managed dress appropriately for the show. And in terms of performance, Cyrus nailed it.
