In short: Miley has taken over everything.
1. Miley takes over Los Angeles
Every day, commuters deep in the thick of highway traffic are met with a spectacle that is quite Cyrus-supportive, to say the least. This black banner in bold block lettering is prominently displayed across the rooftop of downtown Los Angeles event space Casa Vertigo. Cyrus shared the above shot via Instagram with the less-than-shocked statement: "I always knew I'd see my name in lights."
2. Miley takes over Halloween
Flaunt those gams (and your tongue, to top it off) in this costume based on one of the looks in Cyrus's music video for "We Can't Stop." It's complete with a West Coast-reppin' white crop tee and a bare-all bandage bodysuit. HalloweenCostumes.com has released an easy-to-follow tutorial to get you started.
3. Miley takes over the Internet (but don't fret, there's a workaround)
Miley posts clogging up your news feed? Yep, there's an app for that. "No Cyrus" is a Google Chrome application that zaps any mention of Cyrus's name into a series of hashtags so that haterz are free to surf merrily.
4. Miley takes over Nicolas Cage
The clip's a mere eight seconds, but that's all it'll take for this image of Nicolas Cage's romp on that famous wrecking ball to sear into your brain. And shatter (pun seriously intended) the way you used to look at the song forever. Watch the original clip here.
5. Miley takes over time-honored collegiate traditions
Apparently, riding this huge silver ball has been a Grand Valley State University rite of passage for years — but never in the nude. School officials have Cyrus to thank for that. After the "Wrecking Ball" video dropped, students just couldn't resist temptation to shoot a few copycats sans clothing.
6. Miley takes over hip-hop
Cyrus's hip-hop turnaround (first witnessed in her notorious "We Can't Stop" vid) got some fingers wagging. But now that she's the co-star of two respected MCs, she may have some critics thinking twice. The music video for her new single "23" with Mike WiLL Made It, Juicy J, and Wiz Khalifa debuted on September 24.
Goodbye, Hannah Montana. On September 24, the new Cyrus had officially become the stuff of music legend...thanks to the folks at Rolling Stone, some seriously non-waterproof eyeliner, and a whole lot of chlorine. After this cover photo and an interview that left Cyrus with a new tattoo on her tootsies, it looks like this persona's here to stay.
