While nearly everyone on the planet has been bashing Miley Cyrus for her provocative VMA performance Sunday night, there are many coming forward to sing her praises.
Adam Lambert hit Twitter in support of the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer, “Listen, if it wasn’t your cup of tea–all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey, she’s doing something right. We’re all talking. She was having fun-cut her some slack.”
Lambert made waves of his own by kissing a male bassist on stage and grabbing the crotch of another during the 2009 American Music Awards. ABC banned the entertainer from appearing on their network for several years – eventually lifting the ban in 2011.
Another advocate speaking out on behalf of the former Disney star is Rolling Stone magazine. Their kind words so impressed Cyrus that she tweeted a couple of quotes:
Billboard executive Bill Werde totally “got” the Miley-Robin act, “Guys, Miley Cyrus is an all-star hot mess for a hot mess pop moment. She doesn’t care what you think and that’s her brand and she just delivered.”
Viacom Media Network’s president Van Toffler, who owns MTV, had this to say, “Performers turn it up like athletes on game day. Did Miley do every move in rehearsal that she did the night of the show? No. We knew her performance was going to be provocative the way her video is. But on live TV, the performers turn it up a couple of notches.” Ya think?
A photo of a decidedly shocked Will Smith family received some major traction on Twitter yesterday, with most sources reporting the fam was reacting to the Miley Cyrus bump and grind performance. We were deeply disappointed to discover that their collective astonishment was captured on audience cam when Lady Gaga revealed her shell bra and thong.
In any case, we loved the image and felt compelled to add it to our very last bit of discourse on the 2013 VMAs. Carry on…
