Miley Cyrus stayed classy after her notorious VMA peformance on Sunday night by tweeting a photo of herself giving the bird with her bum hanging out of an orange satin “#bangerz” shirt. I blurred the booty not only to save everyone from NSFW imagery but also because I find it hilariously ironic to censor Miley’s rear after we all saw it hanging out of vinyl on Sunday evening.
Miley, for better or worse, was the undisputed “winner” of the VMAs even though she didn’t actually win awards for any of her four Moon Man nominations. Yesterday, Kaiser largely covered the mess of Miley’s stanky, raunchy VMA performance, and now there’s been some inevitable fallout. A lot of it, actually. Since you are obviously reading this story on the internet, you’ve probably noticed that Miley’s twerking is nearly all anyone can talk about on Twitter or Facebook. Speaking of tweeting, Miley herself is extremely proud of her newfound mainstream notoriety as well.
Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact.

Her daddy, Billy Ray, also kept things positive after his little girl stripped on television and groped Robin Thicke with a foam finger.
Thanking God for so many blessings tonight. Continue to pray for world peace. More love …less hate.

Poor Billy Ray. You know it has to hurt for him to pretend to be cool, but (like the rest of us) he should have seen it coming. Right from the moment that Miley appeared in her VMA promo, we knew this would be a bloody trainwreck. Of course she proceeded to “twerk it out” during her solo of the medley, and when the camera cut to Drake in the audience during “We Can’t Stop,” he wasn’t even watching. LOL. I bet Eminem was rolling his eyes for Miley’s song and thinking, “I’m too old for this sh-t.” Then when Robin Thicke came out, and he and Miley did a raunchy duet of “Blurred Lines,” all hope of dignity was completely lost. According to Us Weekly, we (and I am speaking of the collective audience) aren’t the only ones who feel embarrassed for Miley’s attention-grabbing antics. Supposedly, her team is a bit “freaked out” at the fallout, and Robin himself is supposedly “bummed” that Miley overshadowed his entire song. Interesting:
Robin’s regrets? As Us Weekly predicted before the big, unforgettable show, Robin Thicke tapped Miley Cyrus to croon “Blurred Lines” onstage with him at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, Aug. 26 — but, as the world now knows, the 20-year-old starlet arguably stole the show. Clad in a tiny leotard (before stripping down to her underwear) the former Hannah Montana star preceded Thicke’s entrance onstage with a raunchy, manic take on her smash “We Won’t Stop” — complete with giant teddy bears, twerking, tongue and hip thrusts and more.
“Robin thought it would be fun to include Miley, but he didn’t realize how much she would overshadow him. This was his big night and big performance,” one source tells Us of Thicke, who broke out in a big way this year with “Blurred Lines.” Continued the source: “I don’t think he would have done it knowing what it ended up like.”
“He had fun and was fine with how it came out,” counters a Thicke confidante. “He knew what they were going to do and thought it was fun and awesome. He had a great time.”
Despite the success of “Blurred Lines” on the charts, the talked-about clip failed to win Thicke any Moonmen. “He’s also super bummed that he didn’t win, especially Video of the Year,” says the first source.
Those closest to Cyrus are also scratching their heads. “Miley’s team is freaking about that performance,” the first insider admits. “They saw the rehearsals, but those were really played down compared to the live performance.”
“It’s the VMAs, of course she’s going to do a standout performance!” a second Cyrus insider insists. “No one (from her team) was shocked by this.”

This story seems bizarre because we know that Miley’s manager, Larry Rudolph, has to be loving this sh-t. I also have mixed feelings about Robin’s body language onstage with Miley. Since he was wearing his everpresent sunglasses, it was hard to read his vibe, but I think Robin was trying to be professional and not place his hands all over the 20-year-old girl like a total perv. I do realize that it’s hard to argue such a point given the explicit nature of the “Blurred Lines” video, but Miley really was over the top while groping and grinding against Robin. However Robin may feel though, TMZ says that his wife, Paula Patton, was totally cool with everything at the VMAs. She seems like a very … understanding partner.
There’s more Miley stuff to talk about, of course. Over the weekend and via Twitter, Miley herself debuted the cover of her upcoming album, Bangerz. She’s wearing vintage Yves Saint Laurent, but this totally looks like a “Miami Vice” single cover, right?
Kaiser mentioned that this looked like the Rio cover, and now I have “Hungry Like the Wolf” stuck in my head. This Miley cover is ridiculous though, right? The photo effects are so cheap, but that’s exactly the “white trash & Chanel” vibe Miley willingly puts out these days. At the bottom of this post, I’m including audio of Miley’s 2nd single from Bangerz, and it’s a doozy.
Oh, and here are some recent Twitpics from Miss Miley that show off her NYC weekend. In this photo, she’s showing off her “street purchase,” which I guess is that thing on her head. Maybe.
And here are a few shots of Miley clubbing like the scandalous little thang that she wants to be.
As promised, here is the audio version of Miley’s latest single, “Wrecking Ball.” The song sounds like a 1980s power ballad gone bad.
