The Onion correctly predicts the 2013 Miley Cyrus catastrophe


Everyone is chiming in on Miley Cyrus’ insane performance last night at the Video Music Awards, and we’re all pretty much appalled at what went down at the Barclay’s Center. But the best commentary this morning comes from five years ago, when the Onion back in 2008 correctly predicted the former Hannah Montana’s entertainment breakdown in a clip titled: Newsroom: Sources Warn Miley Cyrus Will Be Depleted by 2013

“At current usage levels, Miley Cyrus will be drained dry of entertainment value by 2013,” the report tells us.

How did we not see this coming? The Onion was trying to warn us. The report goes on to say this will be the “worst entertainment crisis humanity has ever faced.”


Well played, Onion. Even Rihanna agrees.
