Over the course of Lil’ Kim’s colorful career, the Queen Bee has rocked many, many iconic looks. And, this Halloween Miley Cyrus paid homage to one of her greatest.
The singer hit up a party attended by her “23” collaborator Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose , wearing her own version of that now-infamous purple jumpsuit . Kim already gave Cyrus her thumbs-up on Twitter , but we got a more detailed review when we hopped on the phone with her.
“How awesome was that! Put it this way, she did me very well. I think she looked gorgeous. I love her; she’s one of my besties,” she said. “She’s like my bestie-slash-wifey. You know what’s so funny? As soon as she tweeted the picture, she texted me and was like she was like, ’Happy Halloween, babe!’ … I think she did me well.”
While you might end up seeing a lot of people dressing up like Miley from the 2013 VMAs , very few people are going to be able to pull off Kim’s vintage look the way Miley did. “She’s so outrageous. She’s fun. She’s gorgeous. She’s just living her life.”
And, if you ask Kim, that look remains one of her favorites.
“There’s a lot of them. So who knows? You know. I really don’t [have a favorite]. I think the Louis Vuitton cover was awesome, where I was body painted in Louis Vuitton [symbols],” she said of her KING mag cover. “The purple pasty will always just be phenomenally outstanding and phenomenally one of the world’s favorites.”
“The purple pasty with the purple hair is something that kids love, women love and men love and people all over the world loved,” she later added. “When people give you that compliment on Halloween, it’s huge.”
Her new single, “Dead Gal Walking” is out, coincidentally, on Halloween ahead of her Hardcore Mixtape, which is slated for release on November 29. “Perfect title for the perfect day, Halloween!” she joked of her single’s title.
She added, “You know it’s a very strong, serious record, but at the same time, feel-good. And, you know, there’s a lot of things that can turn you into a dead girl or a dead man walking and nobody wants to be that. So, I guess my message is ’Don’t become a dead girl or dead man walking. Live your life right’.”
