Miley Cyrus baffles fans with transformation: 'What happened?’

Pop star Miley Cyrus has confused fans with her ‘unrecognisable’ new look while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. After a carousel of snaps were shared on Instagram, people were quick to point out that her teeth and the shape of her face 'looked different'.

The star stunned in her black leather outfit and blue shirt as she chatted to host Jimmy Fallon. She rocked a blonde, wavy hairdo and left her dark brunette roots showing.

Miley was on the show to promote her NBC special, Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party, which she is cohosting alongside her godmother Dolly Parton.

The Hannah Montana star has previously teased that the special will be ‘legendary’, and that it’s about ‘getting glamorous and dressing your best’.


While a large number of followers praised the Wrecking Ball singer for looking ‘stunning’ and ‘gorgeous’, others pointed out the alleged changes.

“What’s happening to Miley? I didn’t even recognise her. Love her though. Big part of my life since childhood,” one person asked.

“She looks different not like herself. She’s too young for enhancements,” another agreed.

“Miley…what happened,” a third commented.

Other fans debated over whether the singer had undergone cosmetic treatments or not.

“She get her teeth done or something?” one fan asked, before adding: “I’m like, something is def different lol.”

“I’m pretty sure Miley got veneers,” commented a second.

“From earlier photos the bottom half of her face looks slimmer,” another pointed out.

“I don’t think she had work done. I think whoever did her makeup contoured the s**t out of her nose. The bridge of her nose looks WAY too thin,” added a fourth.


There were also a number of comments saying that Miley looked just like her mum, Tish Cyrus, while others compared her to Madonna.

“Idk why I thought this was Madonna,” a fan admitted.

“Is giving Madonna of 2008 Hard Candy era,” wrote another.

“The best to play Madonna [in] a movie!” remarked a fan.
