As the MTV Video Music Awards approached, a question on many minds was some form of, "What kinds of outrageous stunts will host Miley Cyrus pull?"
Cyrus stole the VMAs two years ago with a risque performance accompanied by Robin Thicke that brought the act of "twerking" into living rooms around the world.
So observers have been understandably curious what the 22-year-old singer who's left Hannah Montana buried in the dust would do given the chance to lead the 2015 program.
This year there was her onstage "spat" with Nicki Minaj — who called Cyrus a "b****" but offered an odd smile at the host as well, indicating the whole thing very well could have been a gimmick.
Content warning: In this clip Minaj's utterance of "b****" is unbleeped:
And you already knew Cyrus' wardrobe choices would involve as little fabric as possible — but who could have guessed she would bare a body part that's supposed to stay covered on TV?
At one point during the show, Cyrus was backstage speaking and hiding shirtless behind a curtain, but one of her breasts suddenly appeared onscreen before the camera cut away.
Accident? Who knows? MTV said the clip will be removed from all future broadcasts.
Finally, Cyrus closed the show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a performance of her new song "Dooo It!" which starts with the line: "Yeah, I spoke pot" and includes repeated F-bombs — although they were censored.
And with rockers The Flaming Lips playing along, a couple dozen drag queens appeared onstage with Cyrus, dancing and vamping to the offbeat number.
But these weren't just any drag queens — they were contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race, Vox reported.
Oh, and the name of her new album? Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz.
Here's the clip. (Content warning: You might find Cyrus' performance offensive.)
