Miley Cyrus Dua Lipa Prisoner

"Prisoner": Miley Cyrus & Dua Lipa Wreak Sapphic Havoc

Miley Cyrus is currently in the middle of her best moment. So is Dua Lipa. It only makes sense, then, that the two would eventually find their way into each other's respective universes - and all up in each other's arms and faces, at that. "Prisoner" is the long-awaited follow-up to "Midnight…
