Kanye West outdid himself with his wedding gift to Kim Kardashian -- he commissioned an artist to do a portrait of his wife wearing nothing but a thong and Christian Louboutin shoes, Britain's The Mirror is reporting.

According to the Sunday report, West wants to hang the painting in the couple's bedroom. The Mirror also reported that it was painted by a London street artist named Bambi. West commissioned the work through Bambi's manager, Leonard Villa, who was told that West wanted something "regal but typically Kim," The Mirror said.

Bambi received a fee of five figures, the outlet has reported, and the image is not exclusive -- meaning, one presumably could have a replica in their bedroom.

Miley Cyrus put on quite a show at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki Sunday, where her Bangerz tour, which has become something of a strip show, arrived. During the concert, she bent over while wearing a thong bodysuit and purposely flaunted her bare buttocks in front of the crowd.

The former Disney star has never been shy about baring her body, but are things getting a bit out of hand? Fans of all ages and their parents are flocking to Cyrus' concerts all over the world, and her provocative, outlandish ensembles may be more than they bargained for.
