Racy Miley Cyrus royally outdoes Lady Gaga in front of the queen (Hide your eyes, your majesty!)

Lady Gaga is the racy, scandalous one, right, and Miley Cyrus is the innocent kid who sometimes makes age-inappropriate choices?

Hmm. After the Royal Variety Performance for Queen Elizabeth II on Monday night, it’s definitely time to revisit that nugget of conventional wisdom.

And as always, the Ministry’s Department of Absolutely Accurate Online Statistics is conducting a poll.


Gaga showed up in latex, as promised, but the gown was way up to here and way down to there, with all parts mega-covered. She’d gone for drama on stage by adding -- wait for it -- an Elizabethan collar. Suspended on a swing with her piano 20 feet in the air, Lady G played ‘Speechless,’ which she wrote for her dad, Joseph Germanotta. (He was in the audience.)

Miley, meanwhile, met the queen sans bra in an orange maxi-dress that was definitely not ‘way up to here.’ Her performance had her gyrating in leather hot pants to ‘Party in the USA,’ the tune she did at the Teen Choice Awards. Not visible was her new tattoo, which at her age would’ve needed an OK from her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus. (He has his own audiences.)

Please express your opinion in the poll, and in comments below.

And remember, no cussing!
