Miley Cyrus's '23' Video: What She Saved on Fabric, She Spent on Jewelry

Miley Cyrus 23
You know how you have that $1,600 gold anklet and you just don’t know what in your closet to pair it with? Fortunately, Miley Cyrus is here to solve all your wardrobe dilemmas. In the very fashion-forward video for ’23,’ her collaboration with Mike WiLL Made-It (watch the whole thing below), she shows that the best way to style it is with a bikini made out of Michael Jordan’s Bulls jersey, spike heels and extra tongue exposure.

To be fair, the vintage Chanel charm bracelet isn’t strictly meant to be worn around your ankle — that’s a Cyrus touch. But if you’re sold on the look, you can purchase your own at Depuis 1924, which also provided Cyrus with several other accessories (like the $3,400 Chanel leather bangle seen above).

In the gym, you can spot Cyrus sporting a pair of $650 vintage Gianni Versace sunnies and an Hermès watch worth about $2,400. All in all, that’s $8,450 spent on four accessories alone — which we estimate is about $8,435 more than she had to spend on her outfit for this shoot.

How do you feel about Cyrus’s pricey pieces? Would you style them any differently?

I think Miley Cyrus is having an identity crisis. I get she is trying to change her image but what happened to that sweet southern girl? Her over of Jolene on Youtube back from 9 month ago was amazing. That’s the music she should be doing. This is a joke, she’s trying so hard to shed her Disney image. Honestly doing this makes her look like a fool and is going to lose her fan base especially with her interview about how she uses molly and pot. I feel sorry for her.

WTF did I just watch?

Not bad. Her music is better these days, even if it’s not my cup of tea. Too many tattoos, tho.

Her ego is unspeakable. Her audacity unbelievable. Her vanity unsurpassable.

stop making Miley Cyrus look bad she may have done things different from other teens or adults but she is still a human we all do things different we are not all going to act the same.

I can go without having to see Miley Cyrus’ tongue ever again in my life.

My thoughts on this video: Miley’s skin is flawless. Not a blemish in sight. She can dance & sounds good “rapping.” The video is a typical rap video with girls dancing ratchet but it is what it is.

She looks lost. Lost and sad.

She is an idiot!

I bet Michael Jordan was pissed she chose his jersey.

Miley, you’re NOT African American no matter how hard you try. Please stop embarrassing yourself.

Andy on

Miley, stop trying to make us think that you’re gangsta, it’s not going to happen

Mckenzie on

Love it Miley! Enjoyed the video! btw I love your new image. got to love the haters..haha!

MommytoanE on

Is she jealous Taylor Swift had a cute “22” video? This is just lame. She wonders wh her videos keep getting watched, its because everyone can’t wait to see what a trainwreck she turned into another song.

Miley, stop trying to make ratchet happen…it’s never going to happen!!! Haha but really. I regret being a consumer of that self-deprecating nonsense for the last 4 minutes. Why are we not interested in being classy? Not just her, but everyone involved? This is not art.

Diana on

I always liked Miley and still do, but time to grow up now. I know she is evolving into her own person as she claims, but I think she is regretting her choices she has made in the past and just recently…hence all her outlandish behavior. Can’t keep blaming it on “she’s coming into her own” her own personality…don’t buy it, it’s getting old now. And the tongue thing has to go…

maryhelenc on

Isn’t this a song by Mike Will Made It featuring Miley? Either way, she is still a pretty girl and chances are she’ll mellow out now that she and Liam are done. Lots of girls act out like this during a troubled relationship and she’s still young too. She’ll calm down soon enough.

Annie on

She’s no dummy.
She knows sex sells & really, what else does
she have to offer? Not talent, that’s for sure.

Pat on

Why is a 20 year old singing about drinking? And she is singing about smoking joints. But she did not have her tongue out very often, I only noticed it once in the beginning, then a couple of times at the end. I expected more of that.

First She Ruins the Foam Finger – Now She Is Attacking The Great Micheal Jordan – This Girl Ruins Everything!

Well given the fact that I am not a miley fan, I have to say she or who ever is behind her promoting her, I hate to say, did a good job in transitioning her from Hannah Montana, I don’t like choices, but unlike the “vanilla ice” days, she is actually believable, Of course I am against posing, because personally rap coming from rich white bread, who was fed with a silver spoon in her mouth, and he higher than thou attitude, irritates me. I think you should have gone through the struggles and hard ships to talk gangster and be gangster. I just wish she would have went a different route, she is only imitating, so in the words of another true to heart artist Eminem, ” will the real Miley please stand up please stand up” and please put the tongue back in thee mouth and stop acting like you grew up in east LA, or Detroit, we get that you wanted to change your image, but what exactly are you going for. I think your songs are decent, but really how about staying true, you could change your image you don’t have to look the way you do. Subtle is better. But when you are worth over 150 million dollars, I guess you don’t have to do what anyone says. I somehow see a train wreck coming soon. But she is in good company Amanda Bynes and Charlie sheen, I guess all in due time. Meltdown heading her way. I guess when you have to support your one hit wonder father, and a mother who doesn’t know if she should or shouldn’t divorce Billy ray for what the fourth time, what other role model does she have.??? hmmmm

I love this song and what I have heard off of Bangerz! And no I am not a teenager I am a 31 yr old normal woman I just like music a lot. Her outfit was really short in this video but she is an awesome shape and looked gorgeous.

Vile, vile, vile, vile, vile, VILE!!!!!!!!!

I don’t see how this is a Miley Cyrus video – the rappers are doing all the work! She does do a perfect rap video girl though, although the real rap video girls had to do all the work on that front here as well. Sorry Miley, it’s a no go.

Mandylou on

Oh, just stop. Honey, its over.

You’re a really practical website; could not make it without ya!
