Miley Cyrus Boards a Plane in Pajamas, 'Couldn't Be Happier' About Her VMAs Performance
Looks like Miley Cyrus is taking her signature "white trash and Chanel" style to the next level.
The "We Can't Stop" singer, who decided to ditch her now-infamous flesh-colored bra and panties for a recent trip to an airport in Teterboro, N.J, was photographed exiting her car in a pair of pajamas which she opted to pair with unicorn slippers and a Chanel handbag, natch.
Cyrus was all smiles as she arrived at the airport, chatting on her cellphone while ignoring the prying paps eager for a pic of the controversial performer, who continues to make headlines for her eyebrow-raising appearance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
It was the twerk seen 'round the world – and it was all Miley's idea.
Cyrus, 20, had been working on the VMAs performance of her hit "We Can't Stop" – along with her racy duet with Robin Thicke – for about a month before MTV's big awards show on Sunday.
"Most it came from Miley's brain," Cyrus's manager Larry Rudolph tells PEOPLE. "But she collaborated with [her music video director] Diane Martel, who helped her conceive it and bring in the spirit of the VMAs. And with Todd James who designed all of those amazing bears."
Though her skimpy, flesh-colored outfit, her suggestive use of a foam finger and close contact with Thicke, 36, were panned on social media, not everyone is criticizing Cyrus's jaw-dropping performance.
Stars like Justin Timberlake came to her defense, telling one radio station, "Let her do her thing." But the Parents Television Council issued a statement condemning MTV for airing the number.
So what does Cyrus, whose new record will be released Oct 8., think about the world's reaction? "She couldn't have been happier about the performance," says Rudolph.
"MTV and Miley knew exactly what they were doing," adds a source close to Cyrus, whose team wasn't alarmed by the performance. "No one is freaking out."
In fact, "We were all cheering from the side of the stage," Rudolph says of Cyrus's inner circle, which included her mom Tish. "It could not have gone better. The fans all got it. The rest eventually will."
