I’ve been saying for some time now that the reason for Miley Cyrus’ aggressive sexuality and sexy space alien look is that she’s trying to be our generation’s Madonna. However, I never expected that this would endear her to the original Madonna, who has shown no inclination to pass the torch of Madonna-ing. It’s possible, though, that I was wrong about that: The two are apparently planning a peformance together.

Miley is working on an acoustic set for MTV’s “Unplugged.” It seems like a good move for the “Bangerz” star: She’s got the fame, now she needs the cred that comes from a vocal-driven, stripped-down set with no midgets to spank or foam fingers to hump. And speaking of cred — according to E! Online, rumor has it that the Material Girl herself will stop by to perform with Miley.

The two were reportedly spotted rehearsing together, but MTV hasn’t confirmed Madonna’s appearance. “The performance will showcase a more intimate side of Cyrus and feature surprise guests for an unexpected reinvention of the songs that have defined her career, including several from her #1 critically acclaimed album, Bangerz,” MTV said in a press release.

What do you think they’ll sing? I feel like Miley could do a mean “Material Girl.”
