That performance was a cry for help. Shes dancing with giant pedobears.

I got to "...old-school Britney Spears..." and realized that I didn't give two shiats about any of this.

Pop performer on TV causes controversy with racy performance. This is not a repeat from 1956.

Not too many dads take an active enough participation in their children's lives and care enough to actually dress them up and take them out to witness a live, on stage, train wreck.

For for you, Mr. Smith.
But why does your boy always look so worried?

His son looks like he's shiatting himself. God I am sick of seeing that family.

You only have to go about 2 generations back to anyone who watches MTV/VMA's to get to a Cletus or Shaniqua.

The steps that are supposed to be sexy are all there- the ass shaking, the hip moves...but her execution of these steps reminds me of how the 7-year-olds I've taught would do the same choreography. A choreographer might give 7-year-olds similar choreography, intending for it to be cute. It would be, because they are awkward little kids shaking their hips. Miley is not 7 or cute anymore, which is why the awkward way she dances just doesn't work. Here is an example:

Much like the Kate Moss bikini pics....Miley has negative ass.

And no tits.  And when you try to dress sexy, in clothing that should accentuate your curves, when you lack them...it's just...saddening.

John Oliver had some fantastic advice on how to deal with attention whores:

cdn.crooksandliars.com

If the media's reaction to this performance had included words like "uninspired," "predictable," "tiresome," and "derivative," we wouldn't hear another word about it. Instead, they're giving her (and her handlers, and the VMA execs) everything they want by using "horrified" and "dirty." Which means this crap will continue for another generation of manufactured pop stars.

Yes, it was pretty horrible, but she SHE WAS ACTUALLY SINGING!

While it might not've been the best vocals ever, SHE WAS NOT LIP SYNCING! She gets a few pluses for that.

Although I kinda wish Two Chains or whatever would shut up. He was the most annoying thing about that. Who was the other rapper? I did like his flow a little better.

Well that's depressing.
 
2013-08-26 10:24:43 AM  
I'm not sorry for saying this, that little blurs and video of 7 years olds "dancing and prancing" like that made me vomit in my mouth. As a father of a 3 year old now I would be disgusted, horrified, and extremely upset by knowing that my daughter was dancing like that.

And yes Miley needs to go the way of all this little teen tartlets... Just die already you give women, nay humanity a bad name.

Back in 1956 racy performances actually meant.. something

I clicked on that for a moment and then realized what I was looking at, and shut it off...I still expect to hear sirens outside any second.

Worst VMA performance ever! My daughter was going WTF???  There was nothing good about her performance, then the ultimate tragedy was when she ruined Robin Thickes song.

I did not watch the VMAs, but I think the Smith family reaction shot might be my new favorite meme.

She did? I'd imagine it distracted from how much it sucked.

My sister has a degree in dance, and I could picture her writing this article word-for-word.
 
2013-08-26 11:03:50 AM  
Goddamnit I hate people. She's done nothing that she hasn't been praised for before. Give a being a treat every time it does something and it tends to repeat the action.

I don't see a damn difference between this time she slutted up her act and any previous time except she's being vilified instead of put on a pedestal. What's different?

If anything it's getting less disgusting as she grows out of her babyface.

Justin Timberlake does a 15 minute set that is a show stopper.

Miley Cyrus embarrasses herself on stage.

So, of course, Miley Cyrus is the "story".
 
2013-08-26 11:05:15 AM  
I'm going to get bashed for this, but I kinda like Miley.  Her "I don't give a f*ck" attitude is kind of awesome.  She may not be the best singer, but she's entertaining.

Clearly, the story should be, "Wow, a 15-minute Lip*Sync session qualifies as a show stopper?! Was a glowing light or a shiny set of keys the runner-up?"

I think the problem is that she very much gives a fark. Her performance was obviously a way to distance herself from her Disney channel ties.

it is entertaining in a kind of sad way, though. She's kind of dumb, but I don't really have anything against her otherwise. I would be worried about her moving onto drugs because of some perception that it will further her Adult look, but I think the more likely path is that she'll eventually drop out of entertainment and become a born again Christian; probably something on par with Kirk Cameron.

Both of you seem to be under the wrong impression. I guarantee there isn't a single move she makes, or a single photo taken of her, that isn't designed and approved by someone else.

Someone who gets paid for performing giving a good performance isn't news. Someone who gets paid for performing making a fool out of themself is.

clkeagle: Both of you seem to be under the wrong impression. I guarantee there isn't a single move she makes, or a single photo taken of her, that isn't designed and approved by someone else.


I don't think I'd disagree, but I would add that whoever is approving this stuff is probably not doing a very good job. Sure her performance was supposed to be provocative, but I'm not really sure the mockery was the desired result. I don't think the idea of bad publicity being better than no publicity is necessarily a reality.

Trying to prove any point with a video of 7 year old girls dressed as french "maids" and dancing like they were goes to that whole "your argument is invalid" area for me.

I can't tell if it's worried or more "I can't fap to that"
