Did you know: Miley Cyrus "invented nipple pasties"? Perhaps not, but today the pop artist took the opportunity to share that tidbit with her followers when sharing a throwback photo from 2013.
Obviously, Miley was just playing into the meme of "inventing" something when she posted this — as anyone who's spent much time on Twitter is likely aware of this.
But, despite Miley's many appearances wearing nipple pasties throughout her Bangerz era — specifically the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival (pictured below) — the burlesque fashion staple has, in fact, existed looooooong before the musician.
