The Onion's 2008 Miley Cyrus Predictions--Spot On

They don't call it "America's Finest News Source" for nothing.

Back in 2008, The Onion posted the below video--a hilarious look at the probable trajectory of Miley Cyrus's career.  Keep in mind that 2008 was the height of the Hanna Montana craze--before the creepy teddy bears, salvia, and twerking--when Cyrus was still an innocent Disney tween.

However, The Onion News Network predicted that by 2013, Cyrus's entertainment value would be drained, pushing her towards a bleak fate of wild behavior and public stunts seen by many former teen starlets, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan among them.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that The Onion is in possession of an actual working crystal ball, but this prediction was pretty scary accurate.
