Miley Cyrus Paid $50,000 to Lose 15 Pounds

If you watched the People’s Choice Awards or looked through the photos here, you probably thought that Miley Cyrus looked a little bit different somehow. Maybe you couldn’t quite place your finger on it. If that’s the case, then don’t worry, you guys, because I will place your finger exactly where it needs to be.

Miley Cyrus looked different because she lost 15 pounds. Now, she’s never been anything close to fat, and she hasn’t even been chubby – those infamous pictures with the insanely bloated face doesn’t count because I’m pretty sure that was just booze – but she apparently had an extra 15 pounds somewhere on her that she could stand to lose without looking painfully ill, and she did it, and she looks good. Good for her, right?

Except that there’s a rumor that Miley spent $50,000 to lose those 15 pounds. Goodness gracious.

It was hard not to notice Miley Cyrus’ pared-down physique at the January 11 People’s Choice awards. According to a pal, the teen — who packed on the pounds late last year — enlisted the help of a nutritionist, chef and her old personal trainer, Harley Pasternak, to whip herself into bikini-ready shape ahead of her recent Hawaiian getaway with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. “Miley probably spent $50,000 to lose 15 pounds in a few weeks,” the pal tells In Touch. “She didn’t care what it cost as long as she looked good!”

I’m kind of torn about how I feel about this. On one hand, it doesn’t sound like she did anything unhealthy. If she just hired a nutritionist and a personal trainer, that doesn’t sound so bad. After all, it could be a lot worse, right? She could have gotten liposuction or any number of cosmetic surgeries to lose a little bit of weight. This sounds healthy and reasonable. Except for the part where she spent $50,000 so she could look hot in a bikini.

I know that Miley has tons and tons of money, and that $50,000 is basically nothing to her, but I can’t help but think that this is extreme. Like, it’s just a bikini. Save that money for your future and go on a jog or something. I’m sure she’s got the basics of diet and exercise down, and I really don’t see to see a reason to do this kind of thing. Oh, except sheer, mind-boggling vanity. Gross.

Where do you guys stand on this one? If you had Miley’s money, would you spend thousands and thousands of dollars to look good on vacation? Does this make you like her any less? Did you like her at all to begin with?

  • she is a billionaire, so 50,000 is really nothing for her. she lost weight the healthy way and she spend money on it. i can’t hate her for it. she could have just gotten surgery or develop an eating disorder.

  • I’m almost ashamed to say that if I had the finances, I would spent an amount like this on a healthy weight loss program.

  • The title had me thinking that she had been paid $50 000 to lose that weight and I was all like “What?! Who even cares that much?”, so I’m glad to hear it’s the other way around.

  • You know how things work every “close friend/source” is most likely going to juice up a story If true I’ll bet it was $5000 not $50000. But like it says she has tons and tons of money so spend it on what makes you happ I know I would.
