While the COVID pandemic has obviously made it difficult and/or impossible to have giant spectacle weddings, such celebrations are probably going to get extreme once public gatherings are normalized again. For instance, The Voice's Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani previously stated they'd prefer to hold off their nuptials until they can safely invite family and friends to the festivities, but you can bet they're going to put on quite the lavish affair when the time comes. And it looks like Miley Cyrus is cheekily trying to get on the guest list, but as a performer.
The wedding-centric request came after Miley Cyrus posted a video from her recent Tiny Desk "concert" for NPR, for which she performed her ex-bashing hit "Prisoners." Gwen Stefani left a comment on the video calling Cyrus talented, which inspired the former Hannah Montana star to send the message below:
Hey, if the opportunity arises for one to take a shot at singing for a beloved celebrity couple, and one also has the pipes that Miley Cyrus does, then one takes that shot. It doesn't appear as if Gwen Stefani (or Blake Shelton) responded to Cyrus' offer on social media, but it's certainly possible that conversations were had through other forms of communication. If Cyrus posts a new pic of herself in a signature bridemaid's dress or another specific outfit to mark the occasion, that'll be the sign. (Taps side of nose twice.)
Perhaps most intriguingly, the pop star gave Gwen Stefani the option between "best behavior Miley" and "worst behavior Miley," and it's hard to say which one would be the better choice. While I'm sure Stefani and Blake Shelton would love to have a modern fairy tale wedding with a picturesque setting and zero malfunctions, there's something very, very tempting about giving Miley Cyrus free reign to go berserk in whatever way she sees fit. Sure, she's on the sober train now, but she could certainly ACT like she was on mushrooms and MDMT while swinging from light fixtures and pinning dollars to everyone's clothes. How fun would it be if she tried to pop into the wedding cake instead of out of it? Or if she started up a rousing game of Where Did I Hide That Giant Wedding Ring?
On the flip side, there's Miley Cyrus on her best behavior, which is also great, and probably more suitable for public performances. Unless the venue that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton utilize happens to have a giant wrecking ball hanging in the middle.
While it is obviously Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's choice whether or not to have Miley Cyrus perform at their wedding, that's a pretty wild opportunity to even have the option of turning down. The biggest thing I turned down this week was "more tartar sauce" with a fried fish platter...okay, I didn't even say no to that. I'm a monster!
Which songs do you guys think Miley Cyrus should serenade Gwen Stefani with? Or do you think they'd be better off looping in another one of their Voice cohosts to do the honors?
