These are photos of Miley Cyrus taking photographs with fans outside the BBC Radio 1 studio yesterday. I really have to hand it to Miley — she may have completely warped her image into something that seems wholly unnatural for a girl with a voice tailor-made for country music, but with one mere cringeworthy music video, Miley has catapulted herself into pop music superstardom. Bless Larry Rudolph’s heart.
So Miley has the fame now — it was really that easy. She went from being a post-Disney starlet who spent her time attending pilates classes every day and posting photos of her dogs to a bona fide pop star. Now all she has to do is maintain this level of ubiquity, which shouldn’t be too difficult. And I can’t believe the tabloids didn’t come up with this story sooner because it’s just so damn funny. According to this week’s issue of the Enquirer, Elsa Pataky is fuming over future sister-in-law Miley’s fame and wants a piece of that. The premise isn’t too hard to believe, right? Well, Miley credits her drastic haircut last summer with changing her life, and now the Enquirer says that Elsa essentially copied Miley’s hair. I had to go back and check the timeline on these haircuts, and Elsa got hers in December! And unlike Miley’s cut, nobody paid a bit of attention to the crop during Elsa’s pap walks.
Now I had previously assumed that Elsa had acquired a post-baby haircut because she may have experienced that dreaded massive hair loss that often arrives with postpartum hormones. But I think the Enquirer’s version is a lot more amusing as it paints the tale of Elsa seeing Miley as “a bitter rival,” but finding herself unable to become “a Miley mimic.” Mind you, this is all based upon what could be a coincidental set of haircuts, but with Elsa’s fameseeking history, well, it makes a lot more sense than Elsa will be comfortable admitting to when she picks up the tabloids this week:
If Miley Cyrus makes it down the aisle with on-off fiancé Liam Hemsworth, she’ll face a chilly reception from future sister-in-law Elsa Pataky. A source close to the Fast & Furious 6 actress says that Elsa despites Miley — yet she can’t stop copying her!
Elsa, wife of Liam’s brother, Chris, is seething over Miley’s popularity. “Elsa is very jealous of Miley’s fame,” says the pal. “She craves the spotlight — and when she saw all the attention Miley got form her dramatic new look, she decided to cut her hair and dye it blonder.”
Now, the spy says, Elsa is determined to be the only leading lady in the Hemsworth clan. “Elsa has been pushing Chris to talk Liam into leaving Miley for good.”

I don’t know. Part of me wants to believe this fantastic tale, but in my heart, I think Elsa just wanted to cut her hair short and may not have even thought about Miley as she headed towards the salon. Granted, I accept that Elsa is probably jealous of Miley’s notoriety because “global pop star” is a lot cooler than “that indistinguishable character from those Fast & Furious movies.” When Miley and Liam landed on the rocks earlier this year and postponed their wedding, Elsa talked to the press about how she really wanted to attend their wedding of her future sister-in-law, but I definitely think Elsa was just saying what she needed to say to get quoted. When it comes down to it, I think a planned “mimic” haircut would be too obvious for Elsa to do on purpose. Now if Elsa starts sporting a ridiculous grill in a few months, we’ll know this story is totally true. Can you see it?
