Miley Cyrus did not disappoint as host of the MTV VMA ceremony on Sunday. Taylor Swift may have won the most awards but it was Cyrus who shone brightest. She took to the stage in a series of outfits designed by Jeremy Scott, each one more outlandish than the last. This one-time tween idol made merry with her own image, playing along with her reputation for being a bad girl. She spoofed herself in a series of pre-taped skits. And she closed the kudocast with a rollicking rendition of her new single "Dooo It" hich she capped off by announcing that her new album, "Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz," was available as a free download.
However, it was her endless parades of costumes that had everyone talking. Every time she took to the stage of the Microsoft theater, she was in a new look. Each topped the previous one and managed to steal the spotlight from the likes of Nicki Minaj and Kanye West, which is no mean feat.
