Miley Cyrus Gets A Nose Ring And We Explore The Piercing In Pop Culture History

Miley Cyrus has apparently gotten a nose ring. It’s tiny, yes, and perhaps almost unnoticeable, but Miley Tweeted a picture, in which she sports her new jewelry, while out to dinner with her mama in Savannah last night.

Maybe it’s a coping mechanism for her recent breakup with Justin Gaston, but we sort of thought her maybe reconciliation with Nick Jonas had that under control. There’s a chance, though, this seemingly parent-approved teen rebellion could also be totally faked.

Either way, it had us thinking about all the other celebrities who came before Miley, who at one point or another sported a nose ring. Christina Aguilera had one, which is not to be unsurpassed by her other, um, strategically placed piercings. Singer Pink hopped aboard the bandwagon, too. Hey, maybe there was something on the set of the “Lady Marmalade” video because Mya also had a nose ring!

Billie Joe Armstrong famously kicked off the ’90’s with a nose ring. Speaking of the decade, Tupac Shakur had one, as did Sporty Spice, Melanie Chisholm. Know who else did? Bald-headed, Irish songstress Sinead O’Connor. And just to round off that ’90’s nostalgia, Da Brat also had nose bling.

So, what do you think of Miley’s new accessory? Do you believe it’s real?
