Miley Cyrus appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about nips and boobs, managing to show hers underneath world's sexiest Rainbow Fish-esque cape. This particular segment contains all of the "tit talk" that could possibly take place in six minutes of television.
The duo hit all of the topics, discussing Billy Ray's feelings on his daughter's revealing ensembles. "He'd rather me have my tits on and be a good person than have my shirt on a be a bitch," she explained. She also discovered that nipple pasties are the ultimate ice breaker, citing a scenario where she made Paul McCartney uncomfortable at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Finally, to round out the chat, they get into the nipples vs. boob debate, noting the irony of how nipples, which everyone has, are shunned, while "the jug part" is totally okay. The VMA host wonders why, "America's actually fine with tits, it's nipples they don't like."
