What a sorry state of affairs the music industry – that’s music industry speak for ‘music industry’ – is when the world/fash mag slags herald some post-pubescent chump with a press following and no discernible talent as the next Madonna. It might even be a matter for the police.
Mario Testino – who’s been phoning it in since 1983 – has even been paid shitloads to get in on the act, photographing Miley Cyrus in the guise of *checks notes* Madonna, The Blonde Ambition Years, for Deutsch Vogue and the result is the magazine equivalent of a very lazy bottom.
The only silver lining is that the features meeting – industry speak for ‘hats, gloves and shoes’ – would’ve been in German. And no-one listens to that scheiße.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a trout? No (okay, maybe the latter), it's Miley Cyrus, our era's designer-imposter Madonna. ,
