Miley Cyrus dresses as Lil' Kim for Halloween (Photo)
Miley Cyrus took a walk down memory lane with her Halloween costume, channeling rapper Lil' Kim's controversial 1999 MTV Video Music Awards outfit.
Cyrus posted photos on her official Twitter and Instagram pages of her costume, which shows the singer in a lilac purple wig and a matching one-shoulder sequined jumpsuit exposing her pasty-covered left breast. See the full photo on Cyrus' Instagram page (Warning: NSFW).
Cyrus tweeted the photo to Lil' Kim, to which the rapper responded, "Awwww. Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!!" See Lil' Kim's full response on her official Twitter page (Warning: Contains suggestive content).
Lil' Kim famously wore a similar outfit at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City, where the rapper presented an award with singer Diana Ross, who in the moment cupped the rapper's pasty-covered breast during the live broadcast. The outfit and moment has since become one of the award show's most memorable moments.
Cyrus' costume homage is not the first time the singer has expressed love for the Brooklyn-born rapper. Earlier this year in an interview with Billboard.com, Cyrus named Kim as one of her top five favorite female singers.
"In my past life, I feel like that was me," Cyrus said to Billboard.com. "I feel Lil Kim is, like, who I am on the inside. And so she just makes me happy listening to her music and she is just, like, I just love her. And I can't help that I love her."
