Watch Miley Cyrus And Billy Ray Cyrus Sing ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ Together, Feel Uncomfortable
If you thought Steven Tyler texting Lenny Kravitz about his dick piercing would be the most awkward celebrity story you'd read about today, think again. Earlier this week Miley Cyrus and her father Billy Ray Cyrus sang the Def Leppard song “Pour Some Sugar on Me” together at House of Blues in West Hollywood. If you're in the mood to feel uncomfortable, you even can watch video of it.
As soon as I heard this happened, the first thing I did was google the lyrics to the song, which I had a hunch were rather inappropriate for a father and daughter to be singing together. As soon as I read “Love is like a bomb, baby, c'mon get it on,” my mind was made up that this was wholly improper material for blood relatives to perform.
To be fair, they're not singing it by themselves. The band Steel Panther does most of the heavy lifting. But that doesn't mean I didn't cringe over it anyway. It doesn't help that the whole time Miley is gyrating and rubbing props all over her body and sticking her tongue out while her dad is singing sexually suggestive lyrics a few feet away. All I could think about was Michael and Maeby and their ill-conceived holiday duet.
But at least Michael realized the problem and put a stop to things. This is what Billy Ray should have looked like after the first few lyrics:
Of course, I can't say this comes as much of a surprise, weird as it is, since these two have always had an awkward relationship. I guess it wasn't enough that Billy was so A-okay with with Miley's foam finger antics and her drug references and anything else that would typically make a father at least a little uncomfortable. He had to go and sing a sextastic song with her too. Ah, family.
