Miley Brings Back The ’80s In Bangerz Promo Pics

Cyrus follows up her VMA performance with equally risque photos for her upcoming album.

You would think, given the seemingly unending conversation surrounding her VMA performance , Miley Cyrus would be fine to spend Labor Day weekend lying low.

But you’d be wrong … after all, like the lyrics to her recent hit suggest, she can’t stop — and she won’t stop.

Check out the promo images for Bangerz here!

She took little time to rest after Sunday night, getting right back to work making a cameo in Mike Will Made It’s “23″ video, which came on the heels of releasing the second single off her Bangerz album, the intense ballad “Wrecking Ball.”

So on Thursday, we got our first glimpse at promotional pics for Miley’s album, and while they’re nowhere near as talked about as her twerk-tastic Video Music Awards performance, they should be enough to keep the conversation going through the long weekend.

Take, for example, one image, where Miley, clad in checkered leather pants and a cropped top, defiantly grabs her crotch. In another — which recalls the Bangerz album cover — she’s photographed with her back to the camera, a black dress barely covering her backside.

There are, of course, more demure images too: Miley clutching a bouquet of flowers, Miley holding balloons and striking a confident pose, a pensive portrait where she momentarily shows us her soft side … but based on early coverage, it seems (not surprisingly), that folks are focusing on the more salacious photos.
