Miley was robbed!
Have you heard? Miley Cyrus ALMOST won Time magazine's "Person Of The Year" poll! I mean, that's the same title given to the likes of JFK, Queen Elizabeth II, and, um, GANDHI. It's kind of a big deal.
Anyway, I'm sure I don't have to tell y'all what a blow this is. *Picks self off the floor* True, she did nab third place in a list of 44, and that's something to be VERY, very proud of, but... but... SHE DESERVED IT SO MUCH.
(Just FYI, Egyptian General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi won when polling closed last night at 11:59pm. Other "Person Of The Year" contenders included Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Jimmy Fallon, and LOTS of politicians. Among other important people.)
So there you have it. Needless to say, we were really, really pulling for Miley. But such is life! She'll always be OUR "Person Of The Year"! That's why, in addition to crying like a digital cat, we've compiled a handy list of reasons why Miley totally deserves to be Time's "Person Of The Year."
1.) After the VMAs, EVERYBODY from your cube-mate to your local barista asked, "What's twerking?"
2.) Miley just looooves to push people's boundaries. We respect that!
3.) Have you SEEN all the "Wrecking Ball" video parodies??
Check out more reasons why Miley Cyrus should've been Time's "Person Of The Year" after the jump.
4.) Four words: Joint. At. The EMA. (Remember that thing I said about pushing boundaries?)
5.) Because Miley DGAF. About anything.
6.) And yet she (t)works INCREDIBLY hard. Like, REALLY, REALLY hard.
7.) Miley is the only person who could look flawless in an elegant ball gown, or... a nude-colored spandex bikini. *Cringe*
8.) Dare I say "The Miley Tongue" is the new duckface? Why, yes, I do dare!
9.) In conclusion, Miley is everywhere. You can't escape her. And we don't want to.
