Miley Cyrus ‘couldn’t be happier’ about her VMA act & the reaction

Miley Cyrus

I have to admit that Miley Cyrus’ new little devil-horned hairdo is steadily growing on me, but damn, this Miley news stream (much like Miley) just won’t stop. In fact, there’s a bit of crossover with today’s Justin Bieber post, so if you’re curious about the Miley-Bieb duet called (get ready for it) “Twerk,” go to that post to listen to the song in all of its awful glory.

Meanwhile, people are still bagging on Miley for a VMA performance in which she stripped to a bra and (too-small) panties and set about gyrating with a bunch of stuffed bears and a stiff (no pun intended) Robin Thicke. Yesterday, we talked about how parent associations were all upset, and now it seems that the Teddy Bear Fund is calling Miley out too. According to TMZ, the organization stated, “Miley made a poor choice to use a universally loved children’s teddy bear in an offensive way. There is always good art and bad art — unfortunately … this was bad art.” Seriously.

Miley’s stunts are paying off because Billboard is predicting a week of strong single sales following the ass flash seen ’round the world.

Oh, and Miley is actually in the process of recording with Kanye West on a remix of “Black Skinhead.” Kanye has jumped aboard the Miley train along with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, who have collaborated with Miley on the new Mike Will Made It single, “23.” A clip of the song leaked yesterday, but it keeps getting yanked off YouTube. (The Mail has posted a few seconds of audio featuring Miley very awkwardly rapping.) Some of the lyrics of the song include the following: “I’m in the club high on Perc with some shades on / Tank up, mini skirt with some J’s on / I be in the club standing on the couch / In the wolf greys like it’s my house.” Just wait — Miley will soon claim that she’s not saying “Perc” at all. She’s just saying her own name again, and we’re too thick to figure that out.

If there was any doubt at all about that silly report about Miley’s team allegedly freaking out, manager Larry Rudolph would like to clear up that rumor. Rudolph says that Miley’s performance went exactly as she planned for it to happen. No word on whether or not she pulled a fast one on Robin Thicke or not, but Miley is entirely pleased with both the act and the ongoing reaction:

Cyrus, 20, had been working on the VMAs performance of her hit “We Can’t Stop” – along with her racy duet with Robin Thicke – for about a month before MTV’s big awards show on Sunday.

“Most it came from Miley’s brain,” Cyrus’s manager Larry Rudolph tells PEOPLE. “But she collaborated with [her music video director] Diane Martel, who helped her conceive it and bring in the spirit of the VMAs. And with Todd James who designed all of those amazing bears.”

Though her skimpy, flesh-colored outfit, her suggestive use of a foam finger and close contact with Thicke, 36, were panned on social media, not everyone is criticizing Cyrus’s jaw-dropping performance.

So what does Cyrus, whose new record will be released Oct 8., think about the world’s reaction? “She couldn’t have been happier about the performance,” says Rudolph.

“MTV and Miley knew exactly what they were doing,” adds a source close to Cyrus, whose team wasn’t alarmed by the performance. “No one is freaking out.”

In fact, “We were all cheering from the side of the stage,” Rudolph says of Cyrus’s inner circle, which included her mom Tish. “It could not have gone better. The fans all got it. The rest eventually will.”

[From People]

Somehow, I am not surprised at all that Tish Cyrus was actively cheering at Miley’s onstage antics. Tish never criticizes Miley at all, and I can’t help but think she just doesn’t want to make any waves since Miley is the source of most of the family income.

Throughout all of this, a lingering question involves Liam Hemsworth’s thoughts regarding his girlfriend grinding her bum against Robin Thicke’s crotch. Hollywood Life claims to have an exclusive that Liam and Miley are still fighting like crazy, and Liam just can’t get why Miley is being so aggressively sexual in public. Oh, Liam. It’s Miley’s mouth, and she can say/do/twerk what she wants to.

Here’s a picture of Miley with Mike Will Made It, who has described Miley as “the new Madonna.” Right.

    I do wish she’d put that tongue away.

  2. Jennifer12 says:

    I wish she’d go away, period.

  3. capepopsie says:

    I really wish someone would shorten her tongue permanently, it´s SO annoying!

  4. mkyarwood says:

    Sure, sure. I still would rather that some of the young women inventing new fuel sources, or developing greener, safer engineering techniques or fighting for education for all women were ANYWHERE in the media. I don’t care, in the superficial sense, about Miley’s dirty dancing. I care that this is what inundates the media, and what young women think they have to do to be empowered. Also, white coated tongues are a sign of gross things. PUT IT AWAY. You can leave your boobs out I guess, they’re nice.

  5. Tapioca says:

    Come now – with singing in tune and dancing in rhythm it probably could have done!

    • Liv says:

      This is not Britney Spears and not Madonna. Even Madonna was more tasteful. Miley just wants to rebel against something. Sad that she thinks it would be liberating for her to show her naked body to the world.

    • OrangeBlohan says:

      “The rest” did get it. She’s acting out. Stomping and flailing around trying to show us that she’s grown now. She doesn’t know of any other way to do it. It’s sad really that she doesn’t see what an embarassment that was. Hopefully, someday she will get it.

    • Nina W says:

      She’s a delusional fool. Nobody “got it” because “it” sucked. Who the hell does that to teddy bears? What is the message when you combine children’s toys and blatant sexuality? She really needs someone else to make creative decisions for her because hers are terrible and she seems really deeply untalented.

  6. Maureen says:

    Miley and her phallic symbol tongue.

    It’s pitiful that she thinks this is edgy and “ratchet”.

    • Annabelle says:

      I absolutely loathe “ratchet.” I wish that word would disappear from Miley’s (and just about everyone else’s) vocabulary.

    • Maureen says:

      I never even heard the word until it got used in relation to Tongue Monster. I still don’t quite get what it means and I don’t think I care.

    • pao la says:

      I didn’t know what ‘ratchet’ means, so i made some research

      • HK9 says:

        Nice to know that someone actually knows that when people say she’s “ratchet” it’s not a compliment.

      • pao la says:


        Now that i know the meaning i can totally see that she is a ratchet girl. and it’s not a compliment.

      • goddesslove says:

        Ratchet is a term used by a comedic you tube star that has a song describing a certain kind of girl it is really funny and very popular in the urban community which because of its humor and truth was embraced and kinda turned from a negative to a positive. You would never get it it if your’e not a part of the hip hop / urban community and if you have to look it up in an urban dictionary you could never “Get it” What Miley did was sorta genius, she will NEVER be mistaken for Hannah Montana ever again which was obviously the point. She’s a rock star now and the kids love her rebellious FU attitude. So you all may have to get over it. Like or hate she’s the new Elvis everything to piss off parents and perpetuate teenage angst. ONLY it’s the new millennium information generation. No shame involved.

      • Bijlee says:

        @godlesslove …ahh I see now. Miley’s demographic. I don’t think ratchet has turned into a strictly positive term love.

      • pao la says:


        Comparing Miley Cyrus to Elvis is too much even for a gossip site. She’ll be lucky enough if she’ll stay relevant for other 6 months.

      • goddesslove says:

        I was in no way implying that Miley was Elvis’ caliber. The implication was that parents were equally outraged at his vulgarity and self expression. I didn’t particularly like her performance either but I do understand being a 20 year old trying to break out of a Disney Shell. I don’t join witch hunts. Sorry. If you think she’ll be gone in 6 months your not paying attention. She’s a superstar she was tweeted about atleast 9 million times in one day. #truthpeoplewanttoknowwhathercrazyasswilldonext

      • goddesslove says:

        @bijlee Its obvious that ratchet is not a totally positive but I do hear young people speaking proudly of being ratchet on rap songs and in my neighborhood in Oakland California. The urban dictionary will have this info in about 6 months Lol

      • Hakura says:

        @Pao La – Lol! You gotta love the Urban Dictionary… They even include a definition covering ‘Ratchet’, a member of ‘Optimus Prime’s’ team on the Transformers xD!

      • Nina W says:

        Miley is no Elvis and there is a huge difference between the impact of his pelvis shaking and her unforgettable and disastrous “I’m a grown-up” debut. Miley was successful at Disney but she’s going nowhere being an obnoxious tongue wagging show-off. She needs to show some actual talent or her has-been status will be a full time gig.

      • sunnydaze says:

        @goddesslove – I’ve heard this argument a lot, that its kind of a progressive “pushing of boundaries” that elvis, madonna, britney spears etc. have all indulged in. I get the theory, but here’s the thing: by that logic a few years from now people will be performing real, disgusting sex acts saying “look how edgy miley cyrus was, how much *hit she got and that was nothing. ” the pendulum can swing too far, at some point it is too much. I don’t want to live in a world where people are so desensitized to sex or violence or racism or whatever (I get with miley we’re only touching a few of those topics, but this is the evolution of our culture) that nothing is off limits. When is it too much? Where is the line? As long as miley has supporters someone will want to top her to be more controversial and so on. I’m not some ultra conservative (hell I work as a couselor at a syringe exchange and with sex workers) but I think its time people really think about what these stunts mean in terms of where we as fans or viewers are willing to go.

  7. brin says:

    Like they say, bad publicity is better than no publicity, but that stunt was awful.

  8. Mrs Jones says:

    Please, please, please censor her tongue. blur it, put some black strip on it, photoshop it out. I can’t stand it any more, it’s absolutely gross. and it’s almost impossible to surf the net without seeing it everywhere

    • Mon says:

      Oh yes please! It’s everywhere and I’m sick of it…. So not sexy although who knows, maybe deep down inside I’m just sad and jealous of her… – NOT!

      • Hakura says:

        @Mon – I’m sure that’s what she has been trying to convince herself… We all just ‘haterz‘ who are ‘jelus‘ of her ‘swag‘…We just don’t have the ‘ballz‘ to be ourselves like she does.

        ****I know you all surely realize this, but all the misspellings were meant entirely to mimic how I’m sure SHE thinks/uses the words. It was almost physically painful to write like that. xD

  9. Amelia says:

    NO! Don’t destroy the one Kayne song I can actually listen to!!!
    I had one of my best turbo trainer sessions with Black Skinhead pumping through my earphones, keep your chipmunky stank away from it!

  10. mytbean says:

    ok… I’m going to embrace this because it’s inevitable. A sick twisted part of me wants to see a Miley Biebs hookup… It’d be the Jyrus Virus..

    Imagine the drama! It’d put all other shenanigans in the shadows… I don’t think even the Cracken couldn’t compete!

  11. prissa says:

    Off topic – but how tall is miley? She’s got the longest fingers I’ve ever seen! Even her thumb is long

  12. Mon says:

    Well, desperate people don’t really seem to care what sort of attention they get as long as they get some…. She is a prime example. Whoever directs/approves her moves surely is not her friend.
    And she had worked on that poor performance for a month?! Unbelievable….

  13. pao la says:

    Run Liam. Run. She is a skank. A skank with a long scary tongue. No actor that wants to be respected in the film industry would ever go out with THAT. she’ll regret all these lame behaviors in a few years, but maybe then she won’t be relevant anymore. at least i hope.

  14. Gretchen says:

    Isn’t nice how Miley, her team and MTV have totally brushed aside the (very valid) accusations of racism, and are only focusing on the sex side of the hype.

  15. Dhavynia says:

    I wish she would put the tongue away….we get it ok?

    Other than that, I can’t understand why everyone is making a big deal out of this. I’m 41 and I still don’t get all the BFD! I don’t remember it being this bad with MJ grabbing his crotch with a glittery glove or Madonna doing it with a pant suit

    • Cats says:

      MJ grabbing his crotch or Madonna doing it with a pant suit were parts of great performances. People are making a big deal of this because it was such a painfully BAD performance.

      • Eleonor says:

        I sooo agree. Here is Madonna grabbing her croch, “Express yourself” vma’s 1989, at the time she was ruling the world. Even if she has never been a great singer, she was damn great.

      • MaiGirl says:

        Thank you! I’m surprised how many people don’t get that the raunchiness alone wasn’t the whole problem. There were the cultural appropriations issues, as well as the fact that the performance was horrid! It was all tongue, fondling, and awkward thrusting, with no real singing, dancing, or artistic merit to speak of. It was like a precocious pre-teen doing a bad Rihanna impression. Had she actually turned in a good performance, I don’t think people would have been nearly as offended. Nothing I have ever seen Madonna, Prince, GaGa, Britney, or even Rihanna do has been quite as desperate and inept.

    • Jenny says:

      I don’t quite get the hoopla over the raunchiness; I’m pretty used to that.

      What bothered me was more the appropriation of a style of art/music/dance that that performance made pretty clear to me Miley is not genuinely comfortable with. (This is coming from some one who had previously defended her for her foray into urban culture.) She looked awkward, not natural, and basically the whole act consisted of trying WAY too hard to project the image she wants. Otherwise how could she have been working on that mess for a month???!!!

      Side note: I don’t know if anyone here knows who Iggy Azaelia is, but what is the deal with her accent? I believe she is from Australia and also sounds like she is trying way too hard to speak with an awkward urban accent. I was getting borderline racist vibes when she presented with Lil Kim; she sounded like a Sambo act to me.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        + INFINITY
        To every single thing you just said!

      • Bijlee says:

        Iggy is racist and a dumbass.

      • Stacy says:

        I agree with this. The part of her looking like an idiot while trying to be raunchy was more offensive than what she was actually doing.

        She is way, way too try-hard and it was painfully obvious she was out of her element and she looked utterly ridiculous. The sad fact is that all the attention she got will make her think that her performance was “great” and we’ll get more of this spectacle in the future.

      • Lucrezia says:

        Iggy is a racist twit, but I will defend her on the accent thing. She’s lived in the US for a while, and learnt to rap listening to mostly Southern rappers. That she has a strong Southern accent when she sings, and a mixed accent (that fades in and out) when she talks really isn’t surprising at all. It’s not fake or mockery, it just happens.

        Think Nicole Kidman’s Chanel ad: I’m a Dancer, I love to Dahnce. Almost the same word, two totally different accents. It does sound weird, but most trans-continental Aussies end up like that. It doesn’t seem to be an accent that blends well, it fades in and out awkwardly.

  16. dorothy says:

    Yea, well she thinks her behavior is sexy and edgy, how much is her opinion worth.?

  17. mzizkrizten says:

    The teddy bears grossed me out and made me think of pedobear. Maybe all her antics are the result of years of sexual abuse and she’s subtly telling us so with the bears? *shudder*

  18. janie says:

    I just wish this story & Miley would go away! I wonder if this is the way her mom acts? Apple doesn’t fall far the tree… It would explain all the divorce filings?

  19. Mel says:

    Yeah it was trashy and she is as well but I will readily admit that the dumb song has been stuck in my head all week. Therefore, the awful performance served its purpose.

  20. Sugarrbunny says:

    What I found ‘offensive’ was her sheer lack of talent. She looked very “praying mantas on ice” in her dancing & she looked ridiculous. Not sexy or attractive just odd & frankly like an adolescent acting out in a “look at me, look at me, please” sort of way.

    She, like the family dog, doesn’t understand the difference between good attention & bad attention, it’s the attention that she is looking for.

  21. Feebee says:

    Most of it came from Miley’s brain…. That tells me all I need to know.

    I’m wondering what she thinks she’ll need to do to top this. Her tongue is annoying but I never want to see those skin flaps she calls a butt again. Has she never heard of a squat?

  22. neelyo says:

    ‘Cyrus, 20, had been working on the VMAs performance….for about a month before MTV’s big awards show on Sunday.’

    A MONTH!!! She worked on that performance for a month and that’s the best she could do. Wow.

  23. Karen says:

    She isn’t sexy. The routine wasnt sexy. She was just thrusting her abs at the audience (not her hips or butt… Her belly). I felt embarrassed for her. But now that’s over and she’s got her press inches she can’t say it wasn’t a success… She stole the show.

  24. Carolyn says:

    Liam and Miley aren’t together. If they were there’d be photos everywhere and he’d be commenting on her performance in a positive manner.

  25. spunkeeblondee says:

    The childhood image of teddy bears was probably already damaged by the movie Ted. The Teddy Bear organization can chill.

  26. Merritt says:

    She and her tongue need to just go away.

    I remember people complaining about Britney’s risque performances back in the day. But Britney’s VMA performance in 2000 looks downright wholesome compared to whatever that was Miley was doing the other night.

    Also Miley’s cultural appropriation needs to stop. She has been called out on it for awhile now. And she acted like a typical spoiled brat in response.

    • Annabelle says:

      Britney’s performances may have been considered by some to be provocative, but in her heyday there was all that choreography, the snake, the costume changes, and it was entertaining. To say what Miley did was a performance and compare her to Britney or Madonna is hugely insulting to those two because despite their problems, they worked hard to put on a good show. Miley’s “performance” looked like shit she threw together at the last minute and was nothing more than an excuse for her to stick out her tongue and molest herself in front of millions.

      • Merritt says:


        I’m not sure you fully understood what I was saying. I was pointing out that there was controversy over the provocative nature of each. Yet when Britney performed in the early days (not talking about the 2007 embarrassment) it was entertaining because she knew how to perform.

        I don’t think you can compare them as people or as entertainers. I was comparing the responses each of them had. In each case there was a lot of hand wringing.

        In Miley’s case there should be controversy not because of the “sexiness” but because of the racism.

      • Annabelle says:

        I understood what you were saying, and I wasn’t necessarily disagreeing. You mentioned Britney, and I got off on a tangent because I’ve seen so many comparisons to Britney/Madonna since Miley’s stunt at the VMAs.

      • Nina W says:

        Madonna and Britney were provocative & talented. Miley was offensive and awkward.

  27. Erm says:

    It’s already boring to me, and I think I’m desensitised to the tongue. The problem for miley is that she is relying on shock tactics for publicity without much performance talent to back it up, so she can only keep getting more shocking for the same attention. It’s not the best road to follow, but maybe her team has some amazing game plan. *shrugs* I actually find her tedious, not shocking.

  28. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    She is creepy.

  29. allons-y alonso says:

    I normally leave the following sentence in ScarJo posts but i’ll make an exception here:

    Close. Your. Mouth!

  30. Steph says:

    How do people who are fans of the rappers who are associating with her feel? I mean, how do you feel that they are so freely attaching their car to her train in the context of people saying that she uses black women as props and cultural appropriation and all that. Serious question.

  31. phaksi says:

    I give my parents a hard time sometimes, but if I ever did what Miley did they would slap me silly, not cheer me on. Thank God for parents who dont want to be my friend

    • Annabelle says:

      MTE. I heard her mother was in the audience and her dad tweeted something supporting her performance, and I was like, THIS! This is what’s wrong with this girl. Her parents don’t/didn’t PARENT and are cheering her on in her mortifying endeavors instead.

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        Her dad didn’t tweet anything about her performance. He tweeted something about the situation in Syria and it was mistakenly thought to be about Miley.

        I think he is cringing big time over this. He has been pretty clear in the past that he thinks Miley is too “fame whore-ish”, but he got big backlash from her and the family on it. He’s keeping quiet for now, for the sake of peace.

  32. Ninks says:

    The way she has her hand on Mike Won’t stop’s chest is how she used to pose with Liam when they were actually together instead of just pretending.

  33. Ellecommelejour says:

    Please somebody tell me where Liam is!!!

  34. Jayna says:

    Working on it for a month? Did she forget to work on her vocals because she was so busy practicing her stripper moves? I have never ever ever heard such horrific singing on an award show. People who can’t sing and are manufactured in the studio to sound decent with all the vocal processing are smart enough to lipsync.

    I think her two singles are good for her age pop, but the really heavy use of auto-tune is annoying. Her vocals are so heavily processed on both songs, well, one worse than the other.

  35. Sarah says:

    I just wish she would close her mouth. She’s a pretty girl and the hair doesn’t bother me. But damn am I sick of that tongue! Plus, those facial expressions don’t make her look attractive at all.

  36. aquarius64 says:

    I think this article sums it up:

    Other sites are picking up this story and I tend to believe it. The Hollywood Life stories are trying to put a positive spin on Liam being MIA at the VMAs, but male pride rules here. Not a lot of men would co-sign on this, performance or not. I would love to see that infamous twerk session to be manipulated with Miley’s and Robin’s faces swapped out with Liam’s and January Jones’ faces. That Miley’s Achilles heel: Liam cheats on her or leaves her, particularly over this mess. Miley has practically given Liam a hall pass. Judging from the reactions I’ve seen if Liam acts on it no one will blame him. It will also wreck the “sex symbol” (sarcasm) image Miley is trying to forge (and failing miserably). As desperate as she is in shutting down rumors that they split up, that the one thing the Twerk Jerk wouldn’t be able to handle. And I fear there would be a bigger meltdown from her.

    • Bijlee says:

      Who cares what Liam thinks? He needs Miley for her money, connections, and fame. Dude cannot make it on his own. People just see him as the lesser hemsworth no matter what. As much as I dislike Miley I dislike him EVEN more. Boy can’t carry any of the movies he’s been the lead in and he can’t act to save his life. The fact that he’s getting a six figure salary for the hunger games is astounding. He won’t be much after the hunger games ends.

      The only person Miley disrespected was Miley. No one else.

      • NM9005 says:

        OMG exactly! Tell ‘em! Hemsworth is worth shit when he’s in a leading role. A movie doesn’t have to be great to attract audiences but he can’t even do that. Tatum can but then again, Tatum already IS a moviestar.

        Cyrus is a star too and a super rich one. She elevates HIS status so HE needs HER. People can say what they want but both We Can’t Stop and her new song (which she didn’t even promote) are doing great. Wrecking Ball shot to the top after her VMA disaster. Hemsworth however, despite being in Hunger Games, being hot and with positive PR (thanks to the Cyrus bashing) can’t open a film to save his life.

        People need to seriously stop pitying this lesser Hemsworth for staying with a girl for 4 years now AND engaging her. Like it’s out of his hands, like he just can’t break-up. Come on. It’s more clear than ever with his continuing FLOPS that he needs her. If anything, she should dump him.

      • MisJes says:

        I respectfully disagree that Liam needs Miley, and both comments.

        Miley’s fame and money are relics of a once-successful career she had as a child. In recent times she has had new music released, but before this album she had accomplished not a hell of a lot besides working out and getting a haircut. I don’t believe her name carries any weight in entertainment. Sure, she’s garnered fame and fortune, but she is neither respected nor acknowledged as influential within industry. If Liam has recieved any helping hand, it would clearly be due to his being Chris Hemsworth’s brother.

        Connections to a multi-million dollar franchise action star trumps dating a former Disney actress, no?

        In any case, during Miley’s Pilates and experimentation phase, Liam was cast in a handful of films. I believe had Liam not been cast in The Hunger Games, she would have slipped into obscurity altogether. Due to their engagement, she became somewhat synonymous with him.

        “Flops” or not, I think distancing himself from her would only HELP his career.

  37. snappyfish says:

    she needs to stop abusing her poor tongue before someone calls CPS.

  38. Sparkly says:

    Honestly, I never liked her, but I used to be a Miley apologist. I was high and crazy when I was her age. Thank god I wasn’t famous. It was embarrassing enough without being constantly broadcast all over the nation.

    That said, she lost me when she stopped just living her life the way she wanted and actively started trying to be the most annoying person imaginable. That’s exactly what she’s doing, and it’s awful.

    I have no problem with an adult woman claiming her sexuality and I’m whole-heartedly against slut shaming. Gyrating in a bikini is fine for MTV. It wasn’t the Kids’ Choice Awards. My main problem with that whole horrendous performance was the racism aspect (which has been argued to death online this week, so I’ll leave it at that), but I do have to admit that I’m a bit disturbed by certain sexual aspects. Because, you know, I’ve been thinking for a while now that Miley is a furry. And while YKINMKATO, I still can’t help but feel like I was unconsentually dragged into her own personal fetish show and that the voyeurism aspect rocks her socks. Her smug little smile about the whole thing really bugs me.

    I think she needs to go back to being who she wants – but stop trying so hard to be what everyone else *doesn’t* want. There’s a difference. Because this isn’t in any way owning herself anymore. This is try-hard headline-mongering, and it’s getting old.

    • TrustMOnThis says:

      What is so terrible about being a furry? If she even is one, it could also be a schtick.

      • Sparkly says:

        I never said it was terrible. In fact, I specifically said YKINMKATO (which stands for “your kink is not my kink and that’s okay”). I do, however, feel as if she’s unconsentually dragging her viewers into her personal fetish shows to get off on a sense of power and voyeurism.

        That and the whole being willfully obnoxious thing.

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        Sorry, I didn’t catch your long acronym. Furry is not really a kink, though. To a few people, sure. You are probably also conflating it with plushies. Many do. But, plushies is an actual kink while furry is more of a full fledged subculture – it’s kind of like calling Ren Faire a kink just because some people get freaky at RenFaires.
        But even so, why decide that this one facet of her show is genuinely her when all the rest is so obviously fake? Like the latex bikini and tongue thing isn’t a kink?
        Don’t you think she’s just going for whatever will shock the most people/parents and really DGAF about any of it?

    Yeah Horny Montana got just what she wanted. A sh!t load of upset parents. Everyone involved with this at the VMA’s was in on it. They got what they wanted too. A sh!t load of upset parents.

    Why is this story still alive?

  40. Naomi says:

    It’s one thing to not be a dancer but the only thing I could see her having practiced for one month is learning where the backup dancers were going to be and staying out of their way. As for her duet with Robin Thick if it took her one month to learn how to manhandle him and stick out her tongue, well, I guess we can all figure out why Liam is not around so much, lol.

    Of course her team will spin the attention she is currently receiving as expected as planned. Of course people had her in the studio immediately in the aftermath of all of this publicity. Good or bad it is certainly NOT indifferent. People who haven’t seen the performance are curious.

    Next month not so much. Larry Randolph knows to strike when the iron is hot. It is not necessary that the product he is putting out is good or not. Heat has been generated.

    The real question is when the dust has settled where will Miley be? She is already wealthy and is only 20 years old. She definitely appeared to be having the time of her life on the stage but I was ultimately not entertained by her performance. I kept wanting her to move away so I could see the performers. She just seemed to be in the way. Sadly, Miley has a professional team behind her. Miley Cyrus is a brand. What is the goal? What is the direction? Is this what they have mapped out for her for the next 10 years? Yeah Bieber is still making bank but unfortunately making bank is very different from earning credibility and respect from ones peers.

  41. Mayda says:

    figures that kanye “im not for sale” west would jump all over this shit. what a bunch fake, clowns all these idiots are.

  42. Ann Carter says:

    What else is Larry Rudolph going to say? Another adult with his hand out who can’t tell the kid she’s selling music, but becoming a laughing stock at the same time.

  43. Just Me says:

    An empty barrel makes the most noise . . .

  44. Cary says:

    No one’s going to comment on the Miley/Richard Simmons picture? Because that is freakin’ hilarious!

  45. Adrien says:

    Eventually, people are gonna be sick of her shenanigans as the novelty wears off. Someone’s going to outshock, upstage her anytime (see what happened to Lady Gaga). You have to have talent.

  46. Nicolette says:

    Of course she couldn’t be happier, she got the result she wanted. What’s sad is that the bar has been set so low that this is what achieves fame. Even sadder is the thought of all the impressionable young girls out there being influenced by her and all the other crap that’s out there.

  47. gg says:

    Damn she is morphing into Bieber.

    That haircut could not look worse on anybody, even somebody that didn’t have a bowling-ball head with jug-handle ears. UGH.

  48. HK9 says:


    I know about the youtube video(which is hilarious) and still haven’t heard anyone use that term in reference to someone else and have it be a compliment. They’re throwin shade hard ~ and I’ve been into hip hop since 1978~so don’t even try.

  49. Lucy says:

    I’m kind of dying to know what Liam thinks of all this. Like, hear it from himself. Of course, I’ll just keep on dreaming.

  50. Claudia says:

    She bores me.

    But I’m really just chiming in to plead: please, please no more pictures of that tongue! I know tongue-less pictures are a rarity these days, but for the love of your readers :( … It icks me out when I see those pictures on the main page.

  51. Meerkat says:

    That wasn’t tweaking, Miley – that was twerping.

  52. Happy21 says:

    OMG the very day after that stupid ass hairdo and the VMAs I went out for lunch and the hostess at the restaurant (who obviously thought she was far too cool to work there…) had the EXACT hair as the header pic. I was laughing my butt off with my friend.

  53. drea says:

    Oooh, Miley and Biebs would be perfect for each other. Their universe would implode with all the try-hard wannabe-ness.

  54. Kim says:

    She got exactly what she wanted – people talking about her.

  55. Deedee says:

    Miley, I think you should get your tongue forked and pierced. Now that would be freaky.

  56. krysten says:

    I think her new nickname should be Cyrus the Virus. Although John Malkovich would not be pleased! haha

  57. Stacia says:


  58. holly hobby says:

    Can you find another picture w/o her tongue sticking out? It’s just disgusting!

  59. vketjo says:

    She’s acting her age….mentally that is a very spoiled 5 yrs old……..
    Like my granny used to tell us when we were small….”Keep sticking that tongue out youngu’n and someone just might think you want it cut off and oblige ya !”

  60. crazydaisy says:

    naturally, what little girl doesn’t want to grow up to be a porn star? or at least look/act like one?

  61. Really! says:

    One has to wonder,
    How many people have “jumped on that train?”

    I mean literally jumped, for god’s sake the girl is humping teddy bears – rappers aren’t that big of a stretch?

    KK will beat her ass if she does Kanye.

  62. LaurieH says:

    Madonna was thought-provoking and provocative. Miley is vomit-inducing and lewd. She has become nothing more than the living, breathing, poster-child for every misogynist rap lyric ever written. She’s cultivated a persna as the drug-using, gang-banged party girl; the wealthy whore who dresses in Chanel, but still manages to look like a pig. She is “thrilled” with all the attention she got and doesn’t care if it’s almost entirely negative. She sold her dignity for bank. Keep sticking that putrid tongue out and lappin’ it up, Miley.

    • Denise says:

      Bang on. No substance whatsoever, just a misguided, horny, entitled teenager-like girl who is having her way with the media and thinks she’s actually legitimate, thanks to its pathetic lack of standards and scruples. Just because a few pieces of crap say it’s ok Miley, doesn’t mean it is. You will go down in history as a joke, if you even get a mention.

  63. Anne De Vries says:

    I just ran into this:

    and thought it was a good expression of what makes me uncomfortable about the whole dogpile-on-Miley thing that’s going on. Worth watching/listening

    • Bijlee says:

      Yeah some people are piling on Miley for what she’s wearing and her “expressing her sexuality” (eyeroll), but honestly her performance was horrendous. The singing, the dancing, the quality of the performance. It was just a train-wreck from start to finish. Thicke, 2Chainz, Kendrick, they should all be embarrassed for this entire performance. It was awful, tacky, crude, and just didn’t sound good at all. It actively turned me off of Blurred Lines and Give it 2 U. Both Robin Thicke’s songs are gross to me now. Ugh, especially their videos.

      Everyone’s talking about Miley Cyrus using black women as props…even worse in Thicke’s video. This whole association (Martel, Thicke, Cyrus, 2Chainz, Kendrick) is disgusting and not at all funny and amusing like they seem to think.

      As an aside, while Jon Lajoie has made good commentary in most of his songs and he’s a talented, funny guy…I cannot stand him on the League. I must be the only one who can’t stand Taco. He just annoys me to no end.

  64. aquarius64 says:

    @Bijlee and @NM9005 – Let’s see how beneficial Liam will find his association with Miley when the paps corner him and throw that nasty performance in his face; implying that part of the rehearsal is actually shagging Robin to get that authentic feel. And her hanging out with rappers – watch the paps throw out the term “jungle fever” just to get a rise out of him. You think they won’t do that? Imagine having that flung at you for MONTHS, just like Kristen Stewart’s cheating was tossed at Robert Pattinson at every opportunity by the paps. Rob toughed it out for a while at the cost of his image and reputation; and after ten months it couldn’t last. (Rob had his acting cred questioned a lot too.) Did you think Liam is willing to be called a wuss and doormat all for maintaining the “prestige” of being Miley’s fiance’? He’s getting sympathy now, but that will change if he doesn’t dump her. Look what happened to Rob.

    BTW I think Miley IS stupid enough to actually cheat on Liam. I bet the gossip press thinks so too, and they are on the lookout for proof. Exposing Kristen’s Mini-Coopering was a big payday for that pap; imagine the bounty for catching Miley. As arrogant as she is, she won’t be smart enough to cover her tracks. As for Liam and January Jones – nothing’s been proven. Nail Miley on the infidelity cross with hard evidence – Liam has just cause to leave her.

  65. A Holtrust says:

    Someone must have told her she looked sexy with her tongue out…..idiot

    • Tulip Garden says:

      That “performance” coupled with th constant tweets and the complete departure from who he asked to marry him is reason enough to leave her. In fact I think it is expected that he already has or soon will. She has shown such an utter lack of good judgement and respect toward her relationship that I would be disappointed if he didn’t get out of the whole relationship.
      I get that Miley can (and should) do what makes her happy but Liam has the right to be happy too and I cannot imagine that her current behavior or persona suits him.
      Sorry meant to reply above. On phone :)

  66. Jim says:

    Mo`Money Mo`Money..Go make some more money for us Honey! Thats all i hear now. With parents advocating little girl Beauty pagents to allowing there kids to make RIDICULOUS TV shows for innocent kids to watch… I`am concerned (NO! I`am disgusted) our little kids are exposed to this stuff on TV. Now little girls want to be Like Miley, Lindsey, Paris etc and all the other bitchy female celebrities.
    Thanks alot Billy Ray and Mr and Mrs Lohan and all you other parents that make money from exploiting your children.
    You parents are just greedy.
    You shouldnt be making money off your kids. Go back to work and make your own money and protect your FAMILY!!
    Dumb Parents!!

  67. Kristin says:

    I can honestly say that no single celebrity has ever made me want to punch the living shit out of my own computer screen. Except maybe Heidi and Spencer. Hmmmm, nope, not even them. I know my hatred of Miley is probably irrational, but I seriously want to knock the living crap out of her. Every time I see another picture of her with her goddamn tongue out I can actually feel my blood pressure spike.

  68. aquarius64 says:

    This is the result of what Miley has unleashed at the VMAs:

    The word “twerk” is now in the Oxford English dictionary.

    A few minutes ago E! News did a segment giving twerking lessons. The four hosts threw their dignities out the window and try to do it.

    For the record I thought “twerking” was nothing more than a sleazy stripper move. It doesn’t look good on anyone, regardless of race, creed, color or sex.

  69. Str8Shooter says:

    What a dumb twit. I hope she realizes that all she’s ‘accomplished’ here is looking like a cheap $10 whore who just got off the pole at the local strip club.

    Ah, daddy must be SO proud!

  70. Dommy Dearest says:

    Well she’s trash, of course she’s happy with her actions.

    That last picture with the guy, she is standing much closer than she and Liam have in forever. She’s so disrespectful to Liam and his family with all of this.

  71. Theresa says:

    She didn’t destroy the teddy bear stuffed animal thing – furries have been around for a long time.

  72. WendyNerd says:

    Miley needs to change her name again—- this time to Ongue-y.

  73. Kiyoshigirl says:

    The new Madonna is exactly right. Only problem is that she’s not doing anything new while trying to be Madonna. Same schtick, same look, same “look at me I’m shocking”. At least being shocking was somewhat new when Madonna jumped on that train. Like everything else in Hollywood, creativity is being recycled because no one has the brains to think of anything new. Boring.

  74. Shelly says:

    The “new Madonna” my ass! And please please please stop showing pics of her on this site with her huge disgusting tongue hanging out! Can we get a reprieve from that freakishness here at least? This girl is just insufferable. And gross. And if I never hear the word twerk again it will be too soon.

  75. stinky says:

    guess who thought she was thoroughly nauseating a LONG TIME AGO??


  76. tessy says:

    Please I beg of you don’t print any more tongue pictures. That long white candida fuzzed thing is just gross. Find a nice stock photo of the girl comparable to the Beeber car seat photo and put it up any time you have the urge to print a Miley tongue photo. Please.
