This is what "just being Miley" means in 2012!

Miley Cyrus made a jaw-dropping appearance on the red carpet in Los Angeles for Thursday night's MTV Video Music Awards -- and the 19-year-old singer and actress seems to be getting her fashion cues from none other than Pink!

After debuting her shocking, punk blonde pixie cut last month, the "Can't Be Tamed" chanteuse revealed her next evolution --teasing the 'do sky high, and wearing a dark, dramatic gown with a plunging neckline. All in all, Cyrus' VMAs look made her a near-doppelganger for the edgy "Blow Me (One Last Kiss" singer, 32.

Now engaged to beau Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus has defied critics of the drastic 'new do. "My dad Billy Ray Cyrus used to tell me, 'opinions are are like a--holes --everybody has one.' LOVE my hair," Cyrus recently tweeted. "Feel so happy, pretty, and free."
