Flavor Flav was so excited when he bumped into Miley Cyrus backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival over the weekend in Las Vegas that he confused her for Gwen Stefani and shouted “Gwen Stefani!” not just once, but TWICE, as he posed for a picture with her.

Eventually, a little birdie whispered into Flav’s ear and told him that the white girl he had just taken a picture with was NOT Gwen Stefani, but actually Miley Cyrus, formerly known as “Hannah Montana.”

Flav couldn’t believe it at first, but he eventually came to grips with his gaffe, and hugged Miley and apologized for mistaking her for someone else.

“Do me a favor. Smack me,” he told Miley, who looked absolutely NOTHING like Gwen Stefani.

Are we missing something? We don’t see the resemblance. Do you?
