Ah prom… while the rest of America gets excited about sticky stretch limos, off-the-rack dresses (as if!) and who will get to wear the coveted tiara, things are a little different on the Upper East Side. No worries about who’s renting the transportation: the boy’s chauffeur is always the designated driver. Girls get custom-made designer dresses, because of course. And everyone already knows what it’s like to be king and queen, after all we’re all royalty. But one thing the UES does have in common with suburban schools and teen comedies? The stress of getting a date.
Who you go to prom with says a lot about you. Which is why I question the character of Arizona boy Matt Peterson who made this little vid asking twerk and tongue queen Miley Cyrus to be his date. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Well, she did. Kind of. “Dear Matt Peterson, I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to prom,” she wrote on Twitter. “BUT why don’t you come to my AZ show & hang w me? Don’t forget a corsage.”
Matt enthusiastically replied, “I need a tongue tuxedo made by the the 27th. THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!!! #mileyprom”
I’ll admit, this whole thing is kind of adorbz (minus the part about him crying when he met her–why do people always do that?! I’m always like, “Don’t get tears on my Gucci dress, please.”)
Anyway, does MC get major points in your eyes for acknowledging MP’s proposal and inviting him backstage? Tell me in a comment below. XOXO
