Crucial Update

Miley Cyrus Shut Down the 2015 MTV VMAs With Contestants From 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

After a couple hours of Miley Cryus hosting MTV's VMAs, the singer took to the stage to introduce a new, marijuana-themed song and close out the night.

During the performance, a handful of members of RuPaul's Drag Race vogued alongside of her. Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips in a furry costume shot confetti from between her crotch twice. There was much gyrating all around.

Finally at the end of the whole thing, Miley announced that viewers could download the full album, "Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz," a collaboration with Coyne, right here for free (the link wasn't working at the time of publish). While waiting for the site to load and the album to download, enjoy the technicolor dream dance montage from tonight in full.
