On Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, pop star Miley Cyrus donned a brunette wig, glasses, a gray pant suit and pretended to be an Australian TV journalist asking people on the street what they thought of Miley Cyrus hosting the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

A man wearing a cowboy hat and a white tank told the singer he thinks she’s “missing something” in her life and acts out because she is “starving for attention.” Another man in a brown shirt says he prefers Taylor Swift.


The MTV Video Music Awards air at 9:00 p.m. on August 30.
