Miley Cyrus Covers Up And Sings At World AIDS Day Event

Miley Cyrus Covers Up And Sings At World AIDS Day EventU2 frontman Bono hosted yesterday’s World AIDS Day event at Carnegie Hall honoring ONE and (RED). Miley Cyrus showed and showed up in a rather tame-looking outfit compared to her usual looks.

Rolling Stone reports that the singer took the stage and said, “I just turned 23 and I know I will live in an AIDS-free world.” Miley performed alongside Jessie J and Bono and sang “One.” Miley seemed to stumble over the lyrics at one point.

Miley also sang stripped-down versions of a few songs from her album “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.” She then brought out her guitar for a new, unnamed song dedicated to a recently-deceased friend.

Check out more photos of Miley’s getup and a couple of videos from last night’s World AIDS Day event below.

Jessie J Wears Cornrows Despite Current Culture War Debates

Jessie J Is Now Rocking CornrowsJessie J was seen in New York City earlier today rocking some freshly braided cornrows. As recently as yesterday, she had been spotted with straight hair. The “Bang Bang” singer is in town for the “JBL Live at Pier 97″ concert.

The British singer either wasn’t aware or wasn’t too concerned about the criticism that American celebs like Kylie Jenner and Miley Cyrus have received for wearing the hair style, because she was all smiles and peace signs while walking down the street.

Some critics hold that any wearing of cornrows by people not of African descent represents a form of cultural appropriation. Other critics feel that people of non-African descent can wear cornrows without giving insult, if sensitivity is shown to the origins of the style and if the cornrows are not used to perpetuate any exaggerated racial or cultural stereotypes.

Check out more pictures of Jessie J and her new hairstyle below. 

What do you think of Jessie J’s new look? Does she deserve the same criticism as Kylie and Miley, or not?
