houstondragon: They should check out her Wrecking Ball video. Nothing says empowered female like her grinding her naked ass on a large metal ball, and giving fellatio lessons to a sledgehammer.

She'd be a lot cuter, and my boner would be less confused if she didn't look like Bieber with tits.


Oh that video can't be that bad.

*youtube*

Okay, so did I um...I feel weird.

The most offensive part of all this is that Miley Cyrus is suddenly considered the most controversial performer in music,
The VMAs have really made strides since the days of Guns N Roses, Madonna, and Marilyn Manson.

I spent a good half hour trying to come up with a Linux joke for this, but alas I failed.

Please, Fark, do me proud.


It resulted in a forked process, which is another sign of the devil...

\got nothin', but wanted to try...

cretinbob: So 150 people don't have TV remotes?

// I find it hard to believe ayone who would be watching the VMAs would complain


But they had to watch the entire show so they could be enraged enough to complain.

It is past 1984 now. Our TVs don't have an off switch.

So, the Robin Thicke process?

Yet these people decided to tune into MTV and all its wonderful wholesome family programming then are shocked when something a little controversial happens.

I do wonder why MTV bothers with those awards anymore though since they aren't about music anymore, shouldn't they be doing the garbage reality tv rewards instead?

Is that a real screenshot from the actual performance in question, or something else?

I don't see how this performance is much different from Madonna or others, as has been mentioned.  I'm more surprised to think that the Smith family would all be looking that dismayed.  Is Miley a good family friend and playmate to Smith's kids, so this is somehow shocking to them to see?  Who hasn't watched a young neighbour girl bloom?  Aren't all women secretly whores deep down?  Have I gone too far with this?
 
2013-09-13 10:31:05 PM
Meh.  People weep and rend their garments over this Disney-engineered Barbie doll shaking her butt and completely miss the real outrage - the crappy, soulless, corporate garbage MTV peddles as music.  Her ass notwithstanding, the girl deserves to be broken on the wheel on the basis of her father's musical crimes alone . . .

They were looking at Lady Gaga when that picture was taken. You can see her in the box in the lower right hand corner of the picture. But for some reason, that picture finds its way into every thread about the Miley & foam finger.

AverageAmericanGuy: RobertBruce: I didn't watch.  Was it that much more "shocking" than Madonna in the 80's?   Ridiculous pearl clutching either way, then and now.

It was a whole lot more offensive. Offensive in its unabashed badness.


I don't/didn't watch the VMAs, but after the outcry I did go watch the aforementioned bit. I found it to be crude at times, mostly involving the gestures using the foam finger. I dislike twerking in general, this was no different. I usually enjoy seeing an attractive women using her tongue, but Miley looked like a fish that had been snagged with a treble hook in her gills.

Having said that, I didn't see anything I'd really call offensive other than how terrible the whole thing was aka "its unabashed badness."

Can any of you more adventurous farkers explain the bolded part, preferably with pictures? I'm hoping it's a euphemism for something pretty perverted, because if it's just a typo I would have a sad.

One person said they were subjected to 4 minutes of it or whatever. No you weren't. You could've turned the channel. That's like someone complaining about how horrible the food is at an eatery, but they ate all the food anyways.

Also, I read through a few and a lot of them mentioned "it was like I was watching child porn." She's 18. Get over yourselves.

Be outraged about something that's serious and not some girl on television who's just trying to piss off daddy.

I also didn't see the outrage over Janet Jackson's nipple.

I hate to burst their little bubble to tell them those kinds of things typically happen when women are vigorously grinding their heiny bits on a guys crotch.

But I'd hate to ruin their rather pedantic sexual views.

People shouldn't be offended by the sexual nature of the performance. They should be offended by the fact that Miley Cyrus thought any of what she was doing was sexy.

I will post it again because it is relevant. "Flat footed, cringingly unsexy." At least Madonna is a trained dancer and had an awareness of art.

And can you imagine how foul that plastic underwear was by the end of the night? It probably had to be discarded like bio-waste.

"So it was absolutely extraordinary when CBS hired MTV
To do the Super bowl this year
Unbelievable and that CBS would be shocked that
MTV couldn't present a Family Halftime Show

Had none of the executives at CBS ever turned on MTV?
All you gotta to do is watch it for 5 minutes
And know that it should be called 'The Boner Network'

Kids come home from school, "I'm gonna watch MTV"
And they lock themselves in their room
And just put their little peckers right up on the set"

She's just "acting out" because of the abuse she's suffered on the casting couches of numerous producers and directors. It's kind of like Mos Eisley Spaceport, but in Hollywood. I'm not even going to mention her father, nope, not going there.

She really needs to see a doctor about that oropharyngeal candidiasis problem she has going on with her tongue.
 
2013-09-14 12:12:39 AM
She could make a new fashion statement if she opts to use gentian as treatment.
