"I wish I was there to squeeze your boob," Lil Kim perfectly writes in response.

Remember last July, when Miley Cyrus told Billboard that Lil Kim was one of her five favorite female singers? Well, young Miley wasn't lying -- the "Bangerz" star donned a purple wig and nipple pasty for Halloween this year, and posted a few photos of her Lil Kim costume on Twitter on Thursday morning (Oct. 31). Now is a great time to utter the phrase "She's just being Miley."

The outfit, of course, channels Lil Kim's infamous get-up at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, where the rap star triumphantly left her right breast exposed and was subsequently, unforgettably, inconceivably fondled by Diana Ross while presenting an award onstage. Worth noting: Cyrus was six years old when this cupping occurred.

Now, however, Cyrus' costume is inspiring Lil Kim's admiration. "Awwww. Look at my baby ‪@mileycyrus‬ tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob :) :) Love…" the rapper wrote on Twitter in response.

"Wrecking Ball," the second single from Cyrus' recently released "Bangerz" album, holds steady at No. 3 on this week's Hot 100 chart, and Cyrus announced a 2014 tour on "Saturday Night Live" last week. Watch Cyrus' "Gimme Five" video, where she discusses her love for Lil Kim, below:
