If you were looking to ring in 2014 to the sounds of a near-naked pop star with thousands of tourists in the freezing cold, then we've found the spectacle for you. Ryan Seacrest announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that Miley Cyrus will play Times Square on New Year's Eve, aptly rounding out the tawdry year that just was. The 21-year-old twerker will perform for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve just before the (wrecking) ball drops.
