The Parents Television Council, which is a non-profit organization, aimed to "Protect children from graphic and gratuitous programming and to restore responsibility to the entertainment industry" has issued a statement in which executes called Miley's performance of "twerking" on stage, in a flesh colored latex bikini "Sexually exploitative" and said that it "simply substituted talent with sex."
Yet ironically, Billy Ray Cyrus (Miley's father) is one of the famous faces who volunteers for the council, and told Entertainment Tonight that " She's still my little girl and I'm still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change". But his colleague on the Council's advisory board, and former BET network executive Paul Porter, had some of the harshest words for twenty year old Miley."The Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke performance simply substituted talent with sex... While the performance was shocking to the audience, MTV approved it during the show run prior to the broadcast," He said.
Even Robin Thicke's (Miley's on stage MARRIED partner in crime at the VMAS) was disturbed at the performance, which included Miley rubbing her bottom on Thicke's crotch. "I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy" she told Yahoo! News."I don't understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I just don't understand. I think she's misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial."
The former Disney star proudly stripped down to a skin colored latex bikini, and simulated sex with a foam finger , while grinding against 36 year old Thicke. But the latest rage comes from Brooke Shields who played Miley's mother in the once popular TV show, Hannah Montana. She branded the singers performance as "Desperate".
However Miley, certainly fulfilled her aim to shock, being the most tweeted act of the night, in VMA history. East Coast Twitter traffic for this year's Video Music Awards peaked at 306,100 tweets per minute, during the duo's raunchy routine. And while Cyrus didn't quite win any of MTV's 'Moon Man' awards, she did receive the title of "most tweeted-about VMA performance" receiving "4.5 million mentions in tweets sent out during the 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET airing" notes daily mail reporter Michael Zennie. "The tweeting rate obliterated last year's VMA records, which peaked at just 98,300 tweets per minute." He states.
So long story short: While I am sitting here complaining about my work load, I must admit how happy I am not to be Miley's Publicist at a time like this!
