Phoenix High School Student Gets Naked on YouTube to Ask Miley Cyrus to the Prom

Page 2 of 2

Peterson, a student at Arcadia High School, posted a video invitation to Miley online this past Friday that beckoned the lass to be his date at the school's junior/senior prom in May. It was also a bit of a paean to the pop star, as Peterson went through his exhaustive history of being a Miley fanatic.

In 2009, he got to meet Cyrus at the studios of 104.7 KISS-FM during her appearance on Johnjay and Rich Show. Then she gave him an onstage shout-out during her "Wonderworld Tour" appearance at Jobing.com Arena, which resulted in the lad getting super-emotional and teary-eyed.

"Those tears were super-manly right?" Peterson joked.

When Cyrus comes back to the Valley later this month for her "Bangerz" tour, however, Peterson plans to stage another memorable moment by publically asking Cyrus to be his date while sitting in the sixth row of US Airways Center and holding roses. He did a practice run of his plan on his YouTube video after getting naked (while conveniently holding a foam twerk finger over his junk) as a sign of respect toward Miley.
