It doesn't get any more pathetic than Miley Cyrus.
It's been well-documented how the singer relies on Twitter to garner attention and sympathy from her fans. She posts the most self-centered, pointless messages of any celebrity on the network.
But Miley has now taken it to a new level. Earlier this week, she Tweeted:
I wish just once I could look out into the crowd and he would be sitting in the front row singing along. I miss you.
Then, six minutes later, she wrote: Regarding my last tweet. Yes it was about a boy. The one who never lets me down. The one who always makes me smile. My Pappy.
Here's a crazy idea, Miles: if you miss your father, PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL HIM!!! Why resort to some mysterious, creepy Twitter message for the world to see... only to then clarify it minutes later?
Actually, scratch that. We all know the answer.
It's understandable why fans would be confused when Miley Cyrus references a boy. She toys with so many, it's easy to lose track.
Miley and father Billy Ray have a well-known, inappropriate relationship. This is a man who has no problem with his 16-year old daughter strutting around the stage like a stripper. Hey, as long as it makes the family money, right?
** Update: Astute readers have written in and said Cyrus refers to her late grandfather as "Pappy." We still hate her, and we still can't fathom why she posted such a mysterious initial message on Twitter, but we apologize for the misunderstanding.
