‘I spanked Madonna and she liked it!’ Miley Cyrus tweets delights after twerking with her idol (and a pony) on MTV Unplugged

Her attention seeking antics are legendary so fans waited with baited breath to see what Miley Cyrus had in store for her MTV Unplugged special.

Following in the footsteps of luminaries including Sir Paul McCartney, Nirvana and Oasis, the 21-year-old twerking pop star had a lot to prove for her own show and she passed the test with flying colours.

While she put her own spin on the popular series, twerking against a pantomime horse, sticking her tongue out and stripping down to just a bra, Miley – who closed out the show with a duet with Madonna – showed what is often overlooked because of her racy behaviour, that she has a fantastic voice.

But for Miley one of the highlights was spanking her idol, as she tweeted: ‘I SPANKED @Madonna (hard) ( she liked it) (sic).’

Thrill! Miley couldn’t have been happier about working and twerking with Madonna

‘So, it sounds super lame, but as a pop star it’s pretty cool performing with Madonna,’ Miley said.

The delighted star also took to Twitter to ask her fans for their opinion.

And Miley was clearly desperate to see how she had done, asking them to send her on all of her performances.

While spanking Madonna may have been her own personal hightlight, there was plenty to enjoy in Miley’s show.

Stripping off: It wasn’t just Miley’s songs that were stripped back, she also shed her clothes during the performance

The gig, which taped on Tuesday and aired in the US on Wednesday, opened with Miley taking to the stage in a red and white gingham jumpsuit and a blonde wig as she performed 4×4.

She told the crowd, ‘I tried to bring Nashville here for the night’ and sang with an exaggerated southern twang for the first song.

Highlights of the night included Do My Thang, Wrecking Ball, #Getitright and Rooting For My Baby. Drive and Adore You were favourites while Bangerz (SMS) worked surprisingly well in its stripped down format.

Joelene, Miley’s take on her godmother Dolly Parton’s classic was a crowd pleaser while closing out the show with a Madonna duet as they combined Don’t Tell Me and We Can’t Stop, was a fitting finale as Madonna passed on her pop crown.

The message combines the song titles of Madge’s 2000 worldwide hit Don’t Tell Me, and Miley’s recent tune We Can’t Stop.

The pair donned cowgirl uniforms for the raunchy performance, which saw them grind and dirty dance on one another as they shared lyrical duties.

‘I get to perform with Madonna in bedazzled cowboy boots. I can’t really complain about anything.’

Earlier in the evening, the 21-year-old star joked MTV had been ‘brave’ in giving her the show, which saw her backed by a full band including string section.

She said: ‘I can’t believe you let me of all people do an Unplugged. That was brave.’

Miley also shared a number of jokes with her audience, at one point claiming she was headed to a strip club after the show.

Introducing her stripped-down version of Wrecking Ball, she said: ‘I think everyone knows what it’s like to feel their life crumbling down.’

It’s not the first time Madonna has worked with pop stars much younger than herself.
