Just when we thought edgy pop star Miley Cyrus couldn’t push the limits of raunchiness any further, she went and did just that. The singer picked the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to make her statement, which seems to be that she does what she wants to do… how she wants to do it… when she wants to do it… and she doesn’t care too much about what anyone thinks.
Cyrus hit the stage singing We Can’t Stop in a revealing outfit while dancing and twerking with a bunch of giant bears. She seemed to have trouble keeping her tongue in her mouth as people in the audience pinched themselves in disbelief.
Cyrus then took things to an even crazier level by stripping down to nude underwear as Robin Thicke performed Blurred Lines. She pulled off a Jersey Turnpike with Thicke as well as some other sexually suggestive moves that I won’t try to describe to you.
Millions of people took to Twitter and Facebook to share their negative reactions with the world, criticizing everything from the singer’s hair to her dance moves.
Country star Josh Gracin tweeted: “Thanks Miley Cyrus. Now I have to explain to my 11 yr old daughter why she no longer can follow your career.”
The looks on the faces of Will Smith’s family members seemed to express the various negative feelings everyone had during the Cyrus performance, however, we recently learned that the family was actually watching Lady Gaga at the time of the screenshot.
