Miley Cyrus kissed a girl — and she looked like she liked it. The 19-year-old former “Disney” actress had a wild time in New York City, drinking Patron tequila shots and partying (intimately) with friends into the early morning hours Tuesday. Cyrus, who got engaged to 22-year-old Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth last month, arrived at the Electric Room on W. 16th St. in the Dream Downtown and sat with an entourage of about seven people in the small nightclub. Two security guards attempted to block prying eyes from the actress' table in the 21-and-older venue.
But a very thin Cyrus made no secret that she was there, dancing on couches in jean short-shorts and a baseball cap. The teen star enjoyed bottle service at her table throughout the evening and had drinks in her hand, which an insider confirms were tequila. Multiple sources say she did shots throughout the evening. The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer’s good time extended to the group at her table as well. The source says at one point the former “Hannah Montana” star broke from her dancing to plant a kiss on a brunette female friend’s lips.
Cyrus has proven in the past she has no problem getting close to the fairer sex. In December 2007, photos of the then-14-year-old actress posted on her private MySpace account depicted her nearly kissing a female friend, while seductively sharing a piece of licorice with her pal. The shots were spread online, and Cyrus commented to Vanity Fair on the controversy, saying, “I was like, That’s two girls — it’s not a big deal. But they got spread around. Like someone copied and pasted and said, ‘Omigod, look at this,’ and blah blah blah.”
Another insider tells us the Electric Room wasn’t the “Last Song” actress’ only stop of the evening. Prior to the nightclub visit, Cyrus and her entourage were at PH-D Rooftop Lounge, the top floor venue in the Dream Downtown. After the Electric Room, the insider says they traveled back upstairs to the penthouse club and left after 4 a.m.
“She loves New York,” says the initial source about Cyrus’ late nights in the big city. The teenager’s passion for partying has been evident in the past. In December 2010, five days after her 18th birthday, Cyrus was criticized when she was caught on video smoking what she claims was the psychoactive plant salvia out of a bong in her Los Angeles home. At Hemsworth’s 22nd birthday in January, photos were released of the Disney princess licking an X-rated cake shaped like male genitalia. Her scantily clad outfits on the red carpet and in concert have also drawn criticism, due to her age.
