Throughout her life, Miley Cyrus has been surrounded by music legends, thanks to her upbringing and her godmother, the iconic country singer Dolly Parton. Yet, even after her familiarity with the industry, there are moments when Cyrus finds herself unexpectedly starstruck and unprepared. One such encounter occurred with none other than Paul McCartney, the renowned former member of The Beatles.
In a 2015 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cyrus opened up on a somewhat uncomfortable first meeting with McCartney. And this awkwardness only highlights the Hanna Montana star’s transformation from her Disney Channel days.
Miley Cyrus explains her awkward encounter with Paul McCartney
Over the years, Miley Cyrus has evolved into a mature artist. And her transformation includes her choice to wear more revealing clothes in public. And it isn’t surprising to see that Cyrus’s fashion choices played an important role in her unforgettable encounter with McCartney, who according to Cyrus was momentarily at a loss for words.
During her conversation on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Wrecking Ball singer revealed how the Beatles star was probably shocked to see her wear a revealing outfit. However, instead of making things more award, Cyrus found the perfect icebreaker that complimented her outfit. She said,
“I was talking to Paul McCartney and saw him not knowing how to talk to me. It made me more comfortable because it made him more uncomfortable. Sometimes it’s a nice conversation icebreaker. You can be like, ‘Stop staring at my t**s!’ and the conversation just keeps going.”

Paul McCartney opens up on Miley Cyrus’ 2013 VMA performance
Probably in pop culture history, few moments have generated as much buzz and controversy as Miley Cyrus’s unforgettable performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. With her hit song We Can’t Stop setting the stage, Cyrus took the world by storm as she shared the spotlight with Robin Thicke, engaging in a provocative rendition of Blurred Lines that included twerking and an infamous foam finger.
There’s no doubt that the spectacle left audiences divided and critics abuzz, prompting many to seek the opinions of music legends on the matter. And owing to this, in a 2013 interview with The Wall Street Journal, Paul McCartney shared his surprising thoughts on Cyrus’s performance. Surprising because he offered a perspective that was in stark contrast to the widespread controversy. He said,
“So, you will see people doing something that’s uh … I think, it was only mildly shocking. I mean you know. She’s dancing with Robin Thicke on the awards. So what? Come on. We’ve seen worse than that.”
Furthermore, he added that it didn’t seem too explicit to him. He continued,
“You couldn’t see anything. I mean, I watched it, just as an experiment to check, you know. I obviously, you look at it, and you go, ‘What’s everyone shouting about?”
Paul McCartney and Miley Cyrus will be next seen in Dolly Parton’s new album Rockstar. Her first venture in the rock ‘n’ roll universe, the album will reportedly feature thirty songs consisting of Parton originals and a mix of classic rock covers.
