Miley Cyrus Is Having an Armpit Hair Moment, Posts Five Photos to Instagram to Make Sure That You're Aware

Updated

Miley Cyrus is the reigning queen of Instagram oversharing. She loves showing off her dental work, her support of the Free the Nipple movement and is into that other thing that’s going on today (friendly reminder: It’s April 20). But yesterday she debuted her new cause — the unshaven underarm.

To introduce the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s new inductee, Joan Jett, Cyrus took to the stage in a ruffled crop top showing off major underarm hair (though not before posing in pasties for a photos with Jett and Paul McCartney). Later, she returned to Instagram to share an up-close shot of her pit-utation.

While social media erupted with backlash (and support), this isn’t the first time we’ve seen celebrities ditch the razor. Earlier this year Scout Willis showed visible underarm hair at a her first photography exhibition, Madonna posted an Instagram with the caption, “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!!” There’s even a hashtag, #dyedpits, that gained traction on Tumblr and Instagram in 2014 (which we hope Cyrus picks up next).

What are your thoughts on her underarm hair? Share them in the comments below.
