Miley Cyrus was nowhere to be seen at her own VMAs afterparty Sunday night.

The reason for her absence was not, as you might expect, that she joined a convent out of utter mortification after her bewildering performance at the awards show. No, actually it sounds like things are looking up for Miley. According to Page Six, she headed straight to the recording studio with none other than Kanye West.

Apparently, Miley is set to appear on a remix of Kanye’s “Black Skinhead,” part of a remix EP that will hit stores later this year. No word on why they had to record it right that second. Of course, Kanye’s got a new baby at home. He probably didn’t want to stay out too late.

Even Miley Cyrus’ friends can’t stand behind what she did on Sunday at the VMAs, and they’re not shy about saying so. Especially if it’s their job to tear down celebrities.

Pal Kelly Osbourne, cohost of “Fashion Police,” couldn’t hide her dislike of her friend’s performance. “I look at the performance and yes, I do have a lot of the same (negative, horrified, mocking) opinions as you guys about it,” she said.
