ArmednHammered: 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.


I am.

Jizz Master Zero: 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.


Come on, everyone knows that she was doing what producers told her to do

Of course at least one of them had to blame this on how Liberal Socialist county has become.  Cripes.  It's not like this was broadcast directly into people's retinas.  They could have turned it off as soon as she came out and they could see what was going on.

"150 traumatized viewers wrote the Federal Communications Commission to express their outrage about the 20-year-old singer's twerking, foam-fingering, skimpy costume, bumping, grinding, omnipresent tongue, and her interaction with oversize PEDO bears."

White Bourgeoisie Brooklynite Hipster Blogger on Twitter as it was happening:  OMGZ, Miley Cyrus is slutting it up all over the place on the VMAs.   It's farking disgusting.   Put some clothes on, whore!!!

Public:  You sound like the scared old square white people reacting to Elvis in 1956.   And your "slut shaming" is pathetic misogyny.

White Bourgeoisie Brooklynite Hipster Blogger the next day on his blog:  Oh ..... but .... wait.   See, I was upset because it was RACIST.  Yeah, that's it.  It was racist.    It offended my good progressive idealism, which is WAY more progressive than yours.  Trust me, my reaction was purely because I have a much broader sympathy for the plight of African Americans everywhere.  I'm just much more progressive than thou.   I just hate it when black people and black culture are relegated to props by white musicians.   Now excuse me while I go put on Bowie's "Young Americans" album.

Where do us crabby middle class middle aged women who think she is a clodhopping, stump legged, gummy attention whore fit into your narrative? I am no prude but...gross and crass and not remotely entertaining. The girl can sing when not acting a fool. She would probably be on the country charts had she not chosen the annoying slutbag fork in the road. But hey, she is wealthier than me *shrug*

My sister put it well. Quit pointing cameras at her. One can only hope.

Not my thing, personally, but Carrie Underwood types are doing fine. And this hick had her entry lined up. She chose "edgy" and fell flat on her fugly face.

OtherLittleGuy: Mugato: GanjSmokr: Cyrus's grinding caused Thicke "to have a slight erection which can be easily noticed through his pants."

Methinks someone was looking a little too hard at the screen.

These outraged people who were so disgusted by the performance seemed to have gone over it like the Zapruder film.

They were also disgusted over the Zapruder film.

I'm mostly offended that people keep referring to whatever the hell that was as "twerking." That was some kind of sad white girl jiggle.

Madonna was at least performing. Madonna put on a fan-farking-tastic show. Madonna was trying to push the envelope so that more women would embrace their sexuality-- not trying to be shocking for the hell of it just to convince everyone that she was an adult. Miley looked more like a drunken kid in the crowd took her clothes off and wandered onto the stage while the nice teddy bears danced to Blurred Lines.

Again... Not so much offended. It was just bad, and hubs had to listen to me yell at her bad dance moves throughout the duration of her "performance." I made up for it by demonstrating actual twerking for him.

IdBeCrazyIf: megarian: IdBeCrazyIf: HighZoolander: "My daughter was even surprised of Slutty Cyrus, and she's the biggest slut in our family. I mean, there's the sluttiest sluts you can imagine, and then there's my daughter; she'd put Mr. Slave up her ass even quicker than he put Paris Hilton up his. And even she was shocked by ol Slutty Cyrus."

I have the oddest boner right now

Is it like a 7 or 9?

Or do you mean primest?

My boners only work in primes

Mugato: No it wasn't. And these shrieking hens who are crying about this were probably kids themselves when Madonna was doing the same thing on the same channel.


...and their mothers, or they if sufficiently aged, probably lined up around the block to see Annette Funicello -- the original Disney girl gone wild -- shake her bikini-clad, navel-showing, ass on the movie screen. Same shiat, different generation.

Of course, the difference between Madonna and Annette Funicello, and Miley Cyrus, is the former two were actually good performers.

The VMAs are rated TV-14

This program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age.
Programs rated TV-14 may contain some material that parental guardians may find unsuitable for children under the age of 14. The FCC warns that "Parents are cautioned to exercise some care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended.


I noticed there were some complaints from parents with children under the age of 14 complaining that their children were traumatized. I'd like to ask them this...WHY IN THE HELL WERE YOU LETTING THEM WATCH THE SHOW IN THE FIRST PLACE?

MTV's VMA show is not suitable for 10-year olds, yet you let your daughter, niece, etc. watch it and were shocked and upset by the children's reaction. That's some quality parenting right there. No wonder so many children have no sense of personal responsibility. How can they when their parents don't?

I am a poor man. I am an obscure man. I will most likely live and die a poor and obscure man.
But I will never be the object of a sentence that ends with the words "upon whom Cyrus grinded".

And anyway - shouldn't it be "ground"?

I don't know about serious -- "Turning Japanese" was just lighthearted fun.

Kirsten Dunst's cover was pretty hawt, though.

No shiat. MTV giving out awards for music videos is like a Rabbi handing out awards for best pork sausage.

Strix occidentalis: As someone who has yet to experience either, should I expect to be more terrified of Miley's performance or the Red Wedding?

/Strix is late to all the parties
//or possibly just procrastinating


You're not the only one. I wait until HBO releases the entire season on Blu-ray and then I go on a weekend binge.

/Binge of Game of Thrones, not Miley Cyrus.
//But you knew that.

Farkenhostile: Farkenhostile: 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?

Awards*


No, I think you had it right the first time.

there are a couple buttons on a tv remote:

One, ususally red, controls power.  Press once, the TV turns on, press again the TV turns off.

There are other buttons that will change the program you are watching.

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

Maybe if that child process of Billy Ray had closed her stdout like she was supposed to, we wouldn't have to see her tongue all the time.
