The feud between Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus is heating up, as the two are at it again, this time providing bit of embarrassment for one, and the sweet taste of revenge for the other. While many assumed that Jennifer Lawrence’s habit for tripping and falling at major award shows was a combination of nerves and clumsiness, recent revelations may suggest that mixtures of another sort may be the culprit. To add insult to injury, not only did Jennifer Lawrence have to deal with the humiliation and ribbing she took from her stumbles, but a stern intervention provided by none other than the bad-girl of pop herself, Miley Cyrus.
The 23-year-old star of American Hustle confessed as during a taping of Late Night with Seth Meyers, providing off-screen details to the host last week. Lawrence apparently told host Seth Meyers that in addition to being “wasted” during the March 2 Academy Awards ceremony, in which she was nominated for best supporting actress as a result of her American Hustle role, that she continued partying well-through the night, which culminated with her throwing up on on the stairs at Madonna’s post-Oscars soiree.
In a twist of irony that is comparable to having Kim Kardashian scold you for shameless self-promotion, Jennifer now holds the dubious distinction of appearing so out of it that she brought out the interventionist in Miley Cyrus who advised her to “get it together” while walking past the hammered Lawrence.
The audience member indicated that Lawrence confessed she was drunk, and described the after-party, detailing both the stair vomit and Cyrus’ rebuke, stating her recollection of being told something akin to “‘Get it together, girl!'” She reported overhearing Lawrence make the confession to host Seth Meyers during a commercial break while appearing on the show to promote her upcoming film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
This wasn’t the first time that friction arose between the two young beauties. While in London for the latest premier in the Hunger Games series, Lawrence had pointed out Miss Cyrus when asked by reporters to comment on the sexual exploitation of young women in the media. When asked the question and specifically relating to some of Miley’s well-documented antics, the anti-teetotaler was quoted as saying, ““It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more.”
This drew a sharp reprisal from the princess of twerk, who reportedly shot back at her hypocrisy, pointing out that while she spews feminist friendly rhetoric on one hand, she is known to wear revealing dresses while promoting her films and was apparently quite flirtatious with Cyrus’ former fiancee, Liam Hemsworth, sources close to her told reporters. Apparently Miley became perturbed with Liam’s repeated ovations of the Hunger Girls star, before and after their break up, made all the worse by seeing the two of them together at various industry functions.
If that was indeed the case, there is no doubt that the cold dish of revenge was truly a tasty treat for the Wrecking Ball beauty. What could be a better comeuppance than to have your rival walk past while your face down on stars adorning your own vomit? That she happened to be walking by and was able to provide a stern reproach and pseudo-intervention to Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus shows that she is not only talented, but has impeccable timing to boot!
