Star Spotting: It Looks Like Miley Cyrus + Rihanna Are Living The Exact Same Life (PHOTOS)


Are we approaching the Miley/ Rihanna singularity?!

In today's episode of "The Twilight Zone" -- er, we mean evening edition of Star Spotting, we examine the very real possibility that Miley Cyrus and Rihanna are living the exact same life halfway around the globe. What could cause two young divas to engage in nearly identical motions in time with one another over the exact same weekend? The gravitational pull of metals encrusted deep within the Earth's core? A 50-foot swinging pendulum inside of Grace Jones' inner sanctum/ recording studio where she, Cher, and Martha Wash gather at dawn each day to decide the fate of humanity?! What, we wonder?? WHAT?!?!

Well, until we discover the truth, why don't we speculate wildly! Let's start with Exhibit A up top: On the left, Miley performs "We Can't Stop" at day two of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, while on the right, Rihanna looks to be busting out "Phresh Out The Runway" at her "Diamonds World Tour" stop in Singapore. Both took place on Sunday, Sept. 22, and both were pantsless affairs. (Source: MY EYES.) Coincidence? LET'S CONTINUE.

Check out more photos of Miley Cyrus and Rihanna living, like, the exact same life after the jump.

Miley Cyrus rocks a black bikini.

A normal photo... OR IS IT?!

Moving on to Exhibit B, we see the "Wrecking Ball" singer lounging poolside. "I <3 RADIO over and done #VEGAS 2 weeks until #bangerZ," Miley captioned on Instagram. We would've thought nothing more about this photo (other than "Wow, Miley's pasties ensemble makes this black bikini look positively Amish!"), until...

Rihanna rocks a black bikini.

The suspicion! We smells it.

Dun, dun, DUNNNNNNN!!!! The "Stay" singer ALSO Instagrammed a photo of herself lying by the water in a sexy, black bikini, along with the caption "#thailand." But wait! We haven't even gotten to our strongest piece of evidence yet, which also happens to be our most monkey/ baby kangaroo/ slow loris-filled piece of evidence.

Miley Cyrus hangs out with a monkey and a baby kangaroo.

You hung out with a monkey AND a baby kangaroo for Rihanna-less reasons? SURE, MILEY.

We arrive at Exhibit C! In two separate Twitpics, Miley reveals that she kicked it with a monkey named Don and a baby kangaroo named Juan who may actually be a wallaby (and is definitely not named Juan because we just made that name part up).

Rihanna chills with a crime-solving slow loris.

Ha, you #ladeez must think we're as slow as this loris!

And lo! Or rather, lo-ris! Rihanna posted an equally adorable selfie with a slow loris, captioning: "Look who was talkin dirty to me! #Thailand #nightlife." We know that young stars are known for hanging out with all sorts of exotic creatures because #YOLO (see Justin Bieber's alleged animal hoarding), but all this Miley/ Rihanna synchronicity is just too eerie! Could this really all just be a series of unrelated coincidences?!  (SPOILER ALERT: YES, OBVIOUSLY.)
