If Miley Cyrus’ career crashes and burns she has Amazon Ashley to thank. In Touch sat down with the 6-foot-7 burlesque dancer for an exclusive interview.

Miley’s graphic dance routine with singer Robin Thicke was heavily criticized by parent groups. The fallout from Miley’s raunchy dance routine resulted in her being dumped by the finest man in Hollywood. And Miley also lost out on a coveted Voguemagazine cover.

“We didn’t think people would be talking about it on CNN,” Ashley tells In Touch in regards to the backlash. The two met when Ashley spotted Miley in the audience of Beacher’s Madhouse, a Hollywood nightclub where Ashley performs, and Miley requested a tutorial on twerking.

“She’s taken it to a whole new level,” Ashley told In Touch. “The student has become the teacher!” Miley was so grateful that she gave Ashley a cameo in her “We Can’t Stop” video, and invited her to dance during Miley’s infamous MTV VMA appearance.
