The Miley Cyrus Phenomenon at the 2013 MTV VMAs
As promised a solo feature has been dedicated to Miley Cyrus, so let's tackle the 2013 MTV VMAs night from the very beginning.
Arriving at the VMAs: Miley Cyrus hit the red carpet in a two piece bejeweled Dolce & Gabbana. Her outfit, solely, is actually very artistic. The black cropped top with jeweled sleeves, the colors of the jewels are amazing combined together. The jewels continue onto the high waisted pants, encircling her waist. She accessorized the open neckline with a simple diamond necklace and for her hands, just her engagement ring. Realistically speaking, the Dolce & Gabbana outfit and the accessories are perfect together, but Miley speaking, it was just so wrong. She didn't make the outfit work for her, whether it was due to her uncanny attitude, her uncontrollable tongue, or her weird picture poses. Don't even get me started on the two devil buns on her head. Seems like someone got electrocuted as they were leaving the house.
Performance at the VMAs: Part 1
So Miley comes out of teddy bear, wearing a silver body suit with a teddy bear on it. Let me just add, a teddy bear that seems to have the same tongue disorder Miley seems to have. Well, that just ruined teddy bears for me, for quite some time. I worry about Liam Hemsworth, if he comes out in the next picture with an uncontrollable tongue, I think it would be time to alert the hospitals. Moving on, she comes out of the teddy bear, and begins to shake her ass thinking she's Beyonce or something. Her voice surfaces as she begins to sing her single, "We Can't Stop" and was it just me or did her voice kind of sounded quite awful? Perhaps it was from all the jumping around and her tongue flying around, she needed to stop, put that tongue back in and swallow.
Performance at the VMAs: Part 2
She finally finishes her song, and I think to myself thank God it's over, and it seems like the audience agrees with me. The sexy Robin Thicke comes out, in a monochrome suit I might add, not his best choice, and just as I am about to criticize the suit, Miley begins to strip!! I think to myself, no problem, costume change for her next act, only she strips down to a nude plastic two piece, and is wearing an unusual foam finger. The foam finger and herself did some 'interesting' dance moves, as she performed 'Blurred Lines' with Robin Thicke. At one point she bent down and began twerking and getting up close and personal with Thicke. Let's say I am a bit old-fashioned and found it disturbing, but the Smith's family's reaction was absolutely priceless. I wonder if Thicke's son used to watch Hannah Montanna? That would be an interesting conversation.
How did the night end? Yes some stars took home a few awards, but the night truly ended after thousands of websites gave in their thoughts about Miley Cyrus' raunchy act, I mean even CNN found the time to write its very own review. If this was a publicity stunt, it sure as hell worked. We asked our readers to share their thoughts on Miley's VMAs phenomenon and I have to say I completely agreed with Sharon Mae Anderson when she said, "Well I was shocked when she got to the stage with the tongue thing. I got over that. I thought the show was over but I was wrong, she tweaked at Thicke. That was the most disappointing part of the show, the other artist there was like, "there goes her career," I hope it's just a phase she's going through." Here's another comment that we received from Noaf Hussein saying, "A cry for help if there ever was one. Something must be seriously wrong if she feels the need to compensate with this level of attention-seeking."
What do you think? Publicity stunt? Phase? Contagious tongue disease?
