Miley Cyrus hires 85-yr-old drag queen for MTV VMAs performance tomorrow

James 'Gypsy' Haake will join Miley Cyrus on stage during her MTV VMA performance tomorrow (August 27).

The 85-year-old drag queen features in Cyrus' recent "Younger Now" music video in which the star becomes an Elvis Presley drag king. Haake was discovered by Mel Brooks whilst performing in La Gage Aux Folles in the 1980's.

Speaking to USA Today, Haake said: "It’s absolutely mind-boggling what she’s done.

“Miley Cyrus’ fans will be very jealous of me because she gets to kiss me quite a few times.

“I don’t know if it will cure my social problems, but it’s sure going a long way toward it.

"Wait ’til you see this on Sunday. Huge, huge dance number with her with all the seniors. She does kiss me. Okay? We’re talking about Miley Cyrus. Of course it gets wild.”

The last time Cyrus appeared at the MTV VMAs was in 2013 where she made headlines by twerking against Robin Thicke's groin.
