Miley Cyrus Twerks her way to “Pitchy Stripper” Obscurity at the VMA

Miley CyrusFormer Disney Star Miley Cyrus did her best to shed her Hanana Montana image at MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMA).  “Shedding” her image wasn’t the only thing she ended up doing.  The “actress/singer” had the most talked about performance of the night.  Her raunchy dancing and pitchy singing was simply ridiculous and a sad commentary of a little girl seeking attention. 

Cyrus emerged from a giant teddy bear looking like Chuckie’s bride wearing a teddy-bear onesie.  In contrast Taylor Swift (whom I find slightly annoying) and Selena Gomez modeled more classy attire.  As she gyrated to dancers carrying teddy bears she “sang” her latest song which implicitly insinuates and promotes drug use.  I don’t know if I will ever be able to see a teddy bear the same way.

After a couple of uncomfortable and cringe-worthy moments, Cyrus strips to an even more scantily clad outfit (if possible).  Robin Thicke emerges and begins singing his latest single “Blurred Lines” (Check out my thoughts on the song and video).   I would be remiss if I didn’t add Thicke looked like a Beetlejuice wannabe.  Miley then proceeds to hump her Styrofoam finger.  She sticks that finger in places it never should have touched.

Here’s the controversial performance (this is the only video I could find.  Sorry for the poor quality):

Many parental groups are irate with Miley over her performance.  They think it was highly inappropriate.  Robin Thicke should garner similar criticism since he participated in the debacle of a performance.  I think Miley should be able to do as she pleases.  It is MTV’s responsibility to air what they deem “appropriate” for whatever rating the show had (which I think was PG-14).  Many celebrities have commented on the performance.

Many believe Kelly Clarkson indirectly commented on Miley’s performance when she tweeted:

“Just saw a couple performances from the VMA’s last night. 2 words…. #pitchystrippers”

Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus

Even if that wasn’t intended for Miley, Kelly accurately described Miley’s performance.  Miley should be less concerned with garnering mass attention and more concerned with actually gaining the ability to sing; because her singing simply sucked.  And that’s putting it mildly.

Miley accomplished what she wanted.  She wanted attention.  She wanted to create controversy.  There was only one thing she forgot.  Her performance forsaked any remaining self-respect she may have had.  When your actions deem such a comment, they thus don’t warrant any of my respect.  She successfully alienated part of her fan base.  And as I said in the title, she twerked her way to “pitchy stripper” obscurity.

What did you think of the performance?

    I actually completely agree with you. While I think Miley’s performance was totally bizarre, and that indeed her vocals certainly lacked, I’m a bit bemused by the amount of vitriol directed at her in the wake of the VMAs. I think if parents have an issue with their children listening to Miley’s music or watching her performances then they should monitor accordingly, but to still regard her as the Hanna Montana-esque Disney “role-model” she once was and as such insist that she continue in the same vein is just unrealistic and unfair. She’s a grown woman now, and as you said, she can do what she likes.

    And also, lol @ Robin Thicke as Beetlejuice. 😀

      It does irritate me when parents criticize things they could easily censor. As soon as Miley did anything provocative they could have changed the channel. Many patents like to refute responsibility.

      Lol I was feeling very creative with this post. It started with the title. Which is a favorite of mine 🙂

      Thanks for the comment!

    I think each generation has one or more performers who try to push the edge of shocking and vulgar into new territory. The generation before me had Elvis, mine had Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Kiss and the early years of Madonna. My children had Madonna as she matured, Christina Aquilara and Britney Spears. Apparently you have Miley Cyrus. The difference as I see it is relative talent. Maybe it’s my old age talking, but I’ve not seen the vocal skills to justify putting up with the rest of her performance.

    Madonna at her best, or worst depending on your point of view, was as titillating and provocative as miss Cyrus tried to be. To me the difference is easily noticed by simply closing your eyes. If the music is still enjoyable without the visuals, then what is happening on stage is simply presentation meant to appeal to a specific audience. If it’s not, then the audience that likes it really isn’t interested in music. Madonna can sing.

    Most performers, especially the ones who push the edge have had an off day or a performance that was poorly planned or conceived. We’ll see if she matures, both as a performer and personally. If she does then this award show will be a footnote in her resume. If she doesn’t then it may be the beginning of the end for another entertainer who mistook vulgar display for enticing allure.

    Yes, Cyrus’ performance was vulgar. But I blame the VMA’s. The producers planned all this out. Every year they try to do something more controversial then the last. The week before the program, that is all I heard, ‘What is going to happen this year on the show?’ One big scoop was what was going to be shown under the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Ms. Cyrus wants to shed the Disney persona, she can do it another way, but she wants the publicity, her way is the vulgar way.
