Anna Wintour Kills Miley Cyrus Vogue Cover After Twerking-Gate

You might be surprised to learn that Anna Wintour is not a twerking enthusiast. She's cut Miley Cyrus off the cover of the December issue of Vogue, despite a completed photoshoot with Cyrus, because diddling yourself with a foam finger is apparently off-brand.

Says a source: "Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction." Which is kind of hilarious, considering that in 2009 Cyrus once spoke at length about being "embarrassed" by the sexy, sexxy sexxxuality of her Annie Leibovitz-shot backless photograph in the magazine. Sunrise, sunset, y'alls. On the other hand, Gossip Cop refutes the story. [NYDN, USA Today, Daily Mail ]

In other Miley news, she performed on the German TV show Schlagg Den Raab with an all-little-person backup band. [Daily Mail]
