Was Miley Cyrus's performance fun -- or way too much?

The MTV Video Music Awards has long been known as TV’s strangest awards show and Miley Cyrus lived up to that reputation with a provocative performance that involved twerking and running a foam finger along her body.

Cyrus, 20, kicked off her performance by singing her hit summer single, “We Can’t Stop.” The pop star appeared on stage with a multitude of dancing teddy bears while she wagged her tongue out to the cameras and slapped a woman’s butt on stage.

The former Disney star eventually stripped off her bear-inspired ensemble and revealed a nude bikini underneath as her dancers surrounded her with giant teddy bears strapped to their backs.

The weirdness turned into raunchy when Robin Thicke appeared on stage to perform “Blurred Lines.” Cyrus remained on stage to sing backup vocals and ran a foam finger along her private parts with some major pelvic thrusts. At one point, Cyrus appeared to be nuzzling Thicke’s neck. But the most talked-about moment came when Cyrus bent down in front of Thicke and gave him the mother of all twerks.

“Miley better get a damn pregnancy test after all that grinding,” joked comedian Kevin Hart afterward.

    The looks on the Smith family said it all. And it's a shame, because the fact is Cirus has real talent (singing that is). So she doesn't need to act like that.

    ...given her audience, it was perverse, typical of young entertainers in the spotlight.

    She may think she is acting like another Madona or even Lady Gaga, but she is not, even they know where to draw the line, there is a difference between being eccentrically sexy and just being unacceptably lewd, she apparently does not get that.
  • Joker 2013/09/10 21:21:51
    she just wants to have fun

    Not just what she did but how bad she was at it. She just made twerking into the most retarded looking dance since the jerk. She tried way too hard to be something she is not. Sexy. Everyone knows either you are or your not. No amount of tongue wagging, crotch grabbing, or gyrating can change that. I still say she should have received training from exotic dancers. At least she could have looked better while selling peddling sex in order to boost her exposure and career.

    Never liked that kid from day one. Wouldn't let my grandkids watch her show. What a bitchy little kid. That is Joplin the rerun, mark my words. She must hate herself a lot.

    When has it become prudish to call a train wreck when you see it. She just looks wrong. Even with not judging what she did and just looking at how she did it, she just looks wrong. Tried too hard and looked ridiculous. Should have trained with strippers to get her skills up first.

    Every other what performance? That was the most vulgar performance I have ever seen...any other future performances by anyone will receive the same rating from me "vulgar" and grossly inappropriate.

    Actually, no it doesn't. I've never been a fan of provocative dancing or lewdness.
  • Krumcakes 2013/08/29 17:23:31
    All these teenage girls post videos everywhere of themself twerking in sports bras and booty shorts but once Miley Cyrus does it, it's slutty? Oh okay, that makes sense. Miley can do what she wants. All these celebrities are half naked and partying but Miley can't? Once again.. Oh okay, that makes sense.

    But even more so: why are we ignoring the fact that Robin is a married father who is WAY older than her and he LET her do it?
