Intimidating bob of hair Anna Wintour may have canceled Miley Cyrus's upcoming Vogue cover after the young chanteuse's performance at the Video Music Awards. The 20-year-old, who only wanted the world to google "twerk" on a Monday morning in August, was photographed for the cover of the December issue of Vogue.

Was it Cyrus's arrhythmic gyrating that disappointed Wintour's sensibilities? Or her luminescent flesh-colored vinyl bikini? The pedestrian foam accessory she sported on her hand? That tongue? Did Cyrus's use of gigantic stuffed teddy bears as social commentary repulse Wintour's curatorial vision?

The Daily Mail reports that a source says "the whole thing" repelled Vogue's famously twerk-averse editor-in-chief. According to the source, "Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley's performance, to take the cover in a different direction."

The Daily Mail's interpretation is that before the little-watched Very Miley Awards, Wintour was "eager to champion her as a new fashion icon." How quickly the mighty can fall, butts in the air.
