When I was younger that's what we would've called a six pack, three shots, and last chick left in the room before you'd touch it with someone else's equipment. Skanky ho's have their uses but making millions of people throw up their dinner shouldn't be one of them.

Why are people giving this basket case girl the attention she so clearly craves? At least when Lady Gaga is weird it has some sort of purpose--even if it is still weird and way over most peoples' heads. Miss Miley's antics, however, are just a cry for attention, affection, and perhaps help.
IMHO, this is further proof that a good parent would not put their child in a position to be exploited the way Miley's (and many other child stars' parents) have. They just are not equipped emotionally or cognitively to handle it or the transition to the point in their life when they are no longer a cute kid and must function as an adult in the real world. Some, like Britney make the transition, but wear the scars for the world to see. Who would wish that on their kid??

Hey Robin, Beatlejuice called. He wants his suit back..... Whoever said that suit was cool must have some blurred lines in their vision......
Here's the thing, the VMAs have long been the spot for wild and crazy antics that cause controversies. Madonna's performance of "Like A Virgin" at the very first VMAs back in 1984, Andrew Dice Clay's act at the 1989 VMAs, Howard Stern as "Fartman" at the 1992 VMAs, and Madonna's kissing of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the 2004 VMAs are notable examples.
MTV as a network thrives on controversy, always has, always will.
Quoting varigb707 (Reply 1): I don't why some people are making such a BFD on this subject.
Usually I would agree, actually, probably every single time except this one time, because it was so bizarre. It's not just some dumb celebrity gossip, it was like catching a 80 car pile up, a plane crash, a train crash, and a cruise liner going aground all in one shot

Quoting SoJo (Reply 10): Who is Anna Montana? Sounds like a mountain in an episode of Bonanza. Another loser?
Actually, it was "Hannah Montana" a popular show for young girls - and from the few times I'd seen it with my daughter wasn't bad for its intended audience. Anna Montana sounds like the perfect porn star name for her now LOL.
Too bad she's sort of gone off the deep end to no discernable purpose. Seemed to have a reasonable amount of talent that would only be enhanced by a little subtlety.

I don't think I've ever watched anything with her in it or heard one of her songs, but I "follow" her with my weekly hour of dailymail gossip, and since her adulthood she has started covering her body with tattoos, it's really horrible.

I read the media coverage, then watched it quite a bit later.
I have to say I don't see what all the fuss is about. It was certainly very crap, there's no doubt about that. But I wasn't nearly as shocked as the tabloids seem to be. So she was nearly naked and sexually suggestive- is this particularly noteworthy?
If you're not sure whether to use a piece of punctuation, it's best not to.

Quoting SoJo (Reply 10): Who is she anyway? Who is Anna Montana?
She's the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who had his 15 minutes of fame in the early '90s with his song "Achy Breaky Heart." If it didn't make its way across the pond - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byQIPdHMpjc
As Smitty points out, she's a former teen idol due to her starring role in the Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana" about a normal teenage girl who also happens to be a music star (the title character is her stage name), but nobody knows she's a music star except her closest friends (oh the pains of having a cousin right in that age range). She's attracted controversy over the last few years by shedding her good girl image through a series of events including numerous tattoos, being caught out in public braless, getting rid of her long hair (almost certainly weave or a wig) in favor of short/punkish looks, and also incidents about her fondness for marijuana coming to light.
TL;DR - she's on a fast track to being the 21st Century version of Judy Garland minus the cultural phenomenon of "Wizard of Oz."

People still look up to her as a role model....the next day a number of major news networks had Miranda Cosgrove on TV for an interview...Miranda is beautiful, modest, and in college. Now THIS is a role model.
This whole incident is a lot of free publicity for her 'music'...
Perhaps, though the song she performed was already a Number 2 billboard hit and had sold over two million copies. She didn't need to make a donkey out of herself to help this song along. The previous success of the song and her already respectable chart record outside of the Hannah Montana realm precludes (to me at least) any obvious need to bring any more attention to it.
