Flavor Flav to Miley Cyrus

Nice to Meet You ...

Gwen Stefani

And this week's painfully cringeworthy award goes to ... FLAVOR FLAV ... who met Miley Cyrus backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and was convinced she was GWEN STEFANI.

The video was shot Friday night in Vegas -- showing Flav bumping into Miley backstage and getting really excited ... blurting out, "GWEN STEFANI!!!"

Miley doesn't correct him, she just smiles and gives him a hug. Then Flavor calls her Gwen again.

At that point, someone in Flav's camp pulls him aside and tells him it's actually Miley Cyrus.

At first, Flavor can't believe it -- but after the penny drops, Flavor tries to make amends ... turning to Miley and saying, "Do me a favor. Smack me."

Funny ... Gwen was also there Friday night ... looking NOTHING like Miley.

Seriously, I think its just Flav being a smart ass. He isn't stupid, he knows who she is.

Does Miley actually have a job? I only know her for her weight loss and that so called "haircut".

Am I the only one who does not understand Miley's hair? Why on earth did she do that?

Young whore with stupid hair who can't sing live vs. old plastic whore with stupid hair who can't sing live. Not very different. Flavor is a rapper, which means he isn't very smart, but no big mistake here.

Gwen should be highly offended. That ugly ass, horse face and big gums, Miley Cyrus looks nothing like Gwen.

He may have thought Miley's nipples looked just like Gwen's and got confused there.

I'm all for being yourself, but when being yourself makes you look like a scary version of some one else, then it's not a good idea. I get where Miley was trying to go with her look but it doesn't work for her. Her features are way too severe for the fauxhawk bleach blond thing.

Whoever talked her into that absolutely unattractive hairstyle must laugh their azzes off every time a picture of her appears somewhere. Hideous.

I've read multiple responses claiming that white people look identical.

Obviously, having different hair colors, different hair textures, different eye colors, and different nose shapes makes it extremely difficult to tell them apart.

Well, she doesn't have that flowing brown hair anymore and he probably was a little tipsy. Hilarious!

Miley does look a lot different, not surprised Flav mixed it up for a minute, and Miley looks good, just being a young woman feeling free and having fun with her hair and looks and fashion, Miley's a sweetheart too

When you are coked out of your head, yes they look alike.

I'm surprised he didn't think it was his long lost love Bridgit Neilson.
