She’s Just Being Miley
Unless you have been asleep, in a coma or living under a rock for the past few days then you will have heard about Miley’s crazy ass (literally) performance at the VMAs. And of course, if you heard about it then you have no doubt seen it because well, how could you not?
Everyone is going on about it. The news, my friends, random people at uni, my tutors at uni… They’re all like “OMG you guys did you, like, SEE what Miley Cyrus DID at the VMAs? Like OMG what is wrong with her?”
I guess you could say this is an acceptable reaction, she did use a foam finger as a penis and she did grind all over Robin Thicke (who by the way I think is an absolute twat) while wearing some kind of flesh coloured, latex volleyball uniform. But I don’t know if she deserves quite the amount of shit that she is getting.
Her performance, whilst absurd, stole the entire night. No one is talking about Lady Gaga’s comeback (except her) and no one is really even talking about JT, all we care about is Miley right now and that, my friends, is exactly what she wants.
Personally I neither found the whole thing shocking or offensive, in fact I found it rather hilarious. I mean here is this tiny blonde white girl gyrating round a stage with millions of stoned teddy bears, her tongue perpetually stuck out, getting all up in peoples’ grill with her ass and foam finger like she’s Iggy fucking Pop.
How could you not laugh?
Yea maybe the things she did could be deemed ‘a bit much’ for your average 20 year old but then again she’s not an average 20 year old is she?
And anyway, the day that there is no half naked, hyper-sexualised, barely legal pop star commanding the stage will be a sad day for all of us.
