Miley Cyrus opened Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards by expressing her love of Instagram.
The 22-year-old singer, who has 27.7 million Instagram followers, told the crowd: “I took the year off to focus on my true love — Instagram.”
“I just find that it’s a much easier way to express myself and connect with my fans,” she continued. “When it comes to my posts, everyone thinks I just think of some crazy s— and then I just post it, but it’s a lot more involved than that.”
Cyrus then told the crowd to “take a look at my process” and cut to a previously filmed sketch…
Funny men Andy Samberg and Ike Barinholtz starred at Cyrus’ Instagram consultants.
“Remember you wanted to take a standard wink selfie?” asks Barinholtz. “What did I say? ‘No, no, no. Let the bejeweled eyepatch do the winking for you.'”
Cyrus then used her knowledge from the think tank to try and compete with Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded awards show selfie:
It was complete with a photobomb by selfie-lover Kim Kardashian:
Here’s the final product, which garnered Cyrus over 593,000 likes:
“Congratulations to all you guys for being a part of my most normal Instagram ever,” Cyrus later told the crowd.
