Miley Cyrus Censored at MTV VMAs

Miley Cyrus wants to convince the world she ain’t Hanna Montana no more, but like Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe, who stripped down and expressed his character’s unnatural love for horses, Cyrus’s performance isn’t exacting wowing so much as disturbing us.

Dressed in a flesh colored bikini, she referenced “molly,” or the drug ecstasy, from her song “We Can’t Stop,” only for MTV to bleep it out, and also cavorted around a bit absurdly being “as bad as she wish she were” twerking (or provocatively dancing) with co-performer Robin Thicke during her “blurred lines” song.

Brooke Shields, who was her “mother” in a few Hannah Montana episodes, commented, saying “I just want to know who’s advising her, and why [the racy display] is necessary…. [Our children] can’t watch that. I feel like it’s a bit desperate,” she said.

At least, Cyrus’s explanation for the lyrics sound a tad desperate.

“It depends who’s doing what. If you’re aged 10, [the lyric is] ‘Miley,’ if you know what I’m talking about then you know. I just wanted it to be played on the radio and they’ve already had to edit it so much,” she told The Daily Mail when asked about the lyric. “I don’t think people have a hard time understanding that I’ve grown up. You can Google me and you know what I’m up to — you know what that lyric is saying.”

So what’s important is to see how much Cyrus has grown up? And here, “Growing up” means “trying too hard” and “oversexualizing yourself.”

Nevertheless, the star tied with Thicke, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars for the second-most nominated star at the performance. Somebody, clearly, must be convinced by all this, and not just the 10-year-olds at home.



As for her twerking performance dressed in nude colored bra, well its more like a stripper performance than serious music, but if that’s what moves you, so be it.
