Leibovitz Strikes Again: Miley Cyrus

Now really, I don’t give a damn about Miley Cyrus. Let’s get that straight from the beginning. For those type of stories you can out other blogs.

Despite his age, Bubba is now licensed as a legal gun owner. You’ve heard of Stuff White People Like and Stuff Black People Love, would it be appropriate to file this under Stuff White People Do?
