Miley Cyrus Takes Over ‘Ellen’: Watch Her Perform, Talk VMAs & Her Breakup

Miley Cyrus took over The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (October 11), performing a particularly twangy version of her smash “Wrecking Ball” and looking relatively demure in a retro jumpsuit/overall get-up. Cyrus also sat down for a fun interview that covered a wide range of topics. The controversial pop star opened up about her VMAs performance, astutely pointing out the double standards, both gender-based and otherwise (Robin Thicke was just as complicit as Miley but nobody cared, Lady Gaga wore a thong but nobody cared). She also addressed her breakup with Liam Hemsworth, saying by separating herself from another person she was able to focus on herself.

Watch “Wrecking Ball” up top, then head below for the interview, which also includes a Halloween scare.
