SHARE Miley Cyrus wants her MTV — and she’ll get it Saturday on her 21st birthday

MTV has quite the birthday present for Miley Cyrus: The netwerk (that’s a joke, not a typo) is airing an eight-hour celebration Saturday devoted to the pop-culture princess in honor of her 21st birthday.

Starting at 11 a.m. (Central), Miley gets her own party started by debuting “21 Candles: Miley’s MTV Moments.” The half-hour special “will celebrate the 21 reasons why fans love the megastar, including Miley’s best MTV moments of all time, a look back at her milestone music videos and performances, as well as celebrities and fans giving birthday shout-outs and sharing their favorite Miley memories.”

Cyrus will appear throughout the special to reflect on her career —foam fingers! —and what’s to come in her 21st year —more foam fingers!

That’s followed by a repeat of the MTV docu-film “Miley: The Movement Deluxe Edition,” featuring new commentary from the birthday girl before she introduces and hosts two of her favorite MTV shows, “Awkward” and “Snooki and JWOWW.” Seems like a lame gimmick to get viewers to watch a couple of non-Miley-related shows. But I guess that’s less lame than what comes next: a repeat of the “21 Candles” special at 6:30 p.m.

Throughout Saturday, Smilers who tweet birthday wishes to #HappyBirthdayMiley or post Instagram video messages starting today have the chance to appear on MTV during the eight-hour Miley-fest. Do with that what you will.

After this year’s “VMA” performance, MTV clearly sees Miley as the gift that keeps on giving.
