We don’t know why a picture of a young, brunette Miley Cyrus is making the rounds—we can’t explain the internet!—but it’s here, and it’s since been made into a meme.
According to Know Your Meme, the original picture is from the 2008 Grammy Awards. It shows Cyrus making very direct, semi-creepy eye contact with a camera. Her mouth is turned slightly into a smile-slash-grimace. The more you look at it, the more uncomfortable you get. So, naturally, it’s become the source of fun (and horror) for Twitter users and people mildly familiar with Photoshop.
Turns out, Cyrus’ blue eyes can be transposed onto many a things and still transfix. Like, every Bjork album ever. Lady Gaga’s body from A Star Is Born. Even on Lana Del Rey album art (Born To Die or Ultraviolence BTW).
So, in the spirit of Halloween, feel free to freak out all of your friends and only respond to text messages with Miley memes until the 31st. Some other options are below. Happy holidays!
