Organizer: Miley Cyrus Won't Twerk Near Sonia Sotomayor in Times Square
Miley Cyrus will reportedly not get a chance to twerk near Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor when the two ring in the new year together at Times Square in New York City this week.
Sotomayor will be the first Supreme Court Justice to ring in the new year at Times Square, but Tim Tompkins, who heads the group that is organizing the festivities, told the New York Times that viewers should not expect to see Cyrus, who will be performing, twerking next to Sotomayor because the Supreme Court Justice will have a private booth.
The Times Square Alliance made the announcement concerning Sotomayor on Sunday on Facebook:
We’re excited to announce that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will help lower the Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball at 11:59 pm on December 31st. A native of the Bronx, Justice Sotomayor was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2009, and was the third woman and first Hispanic to be appointed to the highest court in the United States. She is an inspiration to New Yorkers everywhere, and we can’t wait to have her join us.
