This picture is worth a thousand words and even more retweets! Miley Cyrus took raunchy dancing to new heights (or lows!) during her 2013 Video Music Awards on Sunday and somehow managed to shock even the biggest A-listers.
Will Smith and his famous kids Jaden and Willow were caught by an audience cam with the most priceless reaction to Miley’s performance of “We Can’t Stop” and her duet of “Blurred Lines” with Robin Thicke. The 44-year-old father and Jaden, 15, cringed, as Willow, 12, confirmed just how jaw-dropping (and gross) the performance really was.
Cyrus was nominated for Best Song of the Summer, Best Female Video, Best Editing and Best Pop Video for her “We Can’t Stop” single, but didn’t end up taking home a Moonman. Instead she simply made the live audience and millions of tuned-in viewers cringe and feel very dirty with her Rated-X (and borderline pedophilic) twerking on Robin Thicke.
If she was aiming to top Madonna and Britney’s kiss, Lil Kim’s purple nipple pastie, and Kanye’s taylor Swift tirade, she might have succeeded but for ALL THE WRONG REASONS. What may be fun for an Instagram video or TwitPic isn’t quite VMA performance ready. And what’s even more hilarious is that Miley doesn’t even realize that the VMAs and MTV just used her baffoonery for TV ratings. Who’s cooning now, Miley?
