Hollis Jane is a little person who was a backup dancer for that number that Miley performed on the VMA’s and she is completely shell shocked and mortified. She said, “‘I was a bear in Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance and. . . for the first time I felt truly ashamed of being a little person.” She also said, “‘I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do.” She also said that she didn’t know she was going to be stuffed into a bear costume until after she took the gig.
