When Miley Cyrus
at the MTV Video Music Awards
on Thursday, it was like seeing double!
The singers, who both have cropped, blonde haircuts
, wore their hair up in identical faux-hawk styles.
Before Pink took the stage
, Cyrus, 19, introduced the singer, who performed "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)." "The artist who is about to take the stage inspired artists like me to be true to ourselves, sing from the heart and be individuals," she said.
Wearing a black silk organza gown
by Emilio Pucci, Cyrus's newly cropped blonde locks added a rock 'n' roll twist to her classic ensemble. But Pink's pompadour is a regular part
of the singer's edgy style.
