In her opening monologue at the VMAs, Miley Cyrus made a few waves: she posed with audience members (including pop singer Rita Ora) in order to take history’s greatest selfie. Preceding that, Cyrus discussed her Instagram strategy in a taped sketch with The Mindy Project‘s Ike Barinholtz and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg; both of them advised her to put other aspects forward in the snap, which Cyrus didn’t obey.
The pop singer also referenced both of her parents’ presence in the audience, noting that if the VMAs were like a family celebration, there would be a fistfight before the end of the ceremony. We can only hope.
