The past couple weeks have made it clear that this is short hair's moment, but Miley Cyrus isn't letting anyone forget who really kicked things off. In a new E! interview, she tells Kelly Osbourne "[Being] on the cover of Maxim and having short hair, I feel like I'm speaking on behalf of girls everywhere, breaking this stereotype." However, the pixie phase might be growing itself out, since Beyoncé has moved on and even Miley admits she's "secretly tugging on it every night," and "loves a good weave." Is this rattail a warning of the end of super-short crops, or just a scary new trend about to break? [HuffingtonPost]
