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?

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.

Not a fan of hers, but if she had put on a good show with out the antics, no one would be be talking about her and that's not part of the plan. Although she seems to have taken the low road in her career, what she does is business and with a net worth of over $100 million, it seems to be working.

Disney's darling, Hannah Montana, has become another one of Hollywood's bad girls. I saw this coming many years ago. She now joins Lindsay Lohan, Brittney Spears, Paris Hilton, Madonna, etc in Hollywood's race to the bottom.

I remember when Madonna prancing around with leg warmers and screeching "like a virgin, touched for the very first time" was the height of blasphemy (and so does many of your mothers!), but now it's regarded as the thing that made her a household name and made her the envy of many performers and punters. Cest la vie...
Quoting bohica (Reply 27): Madonna, etc in Hollywood's race to the bottom.
She's never done that. She has had a couple of songs hit No. 2.
Failing to hit No.1 doesn't impede your career. A career without a slew of No.1s doesn't meant much in the US, though it does apparently mean something in the UK (for instance the Spice Girls only failed to top the chart with 2 of their 11 singles, one of them 8 years after their prime). Tina Turner only had one No.1 hit her entire career. She was no worse for the wear. Same for Fleetwood Mac. They had only one and are still selling out arenas. Stevie Nicks never had a solo single hit No.1; she still sells out arenas. Same for Bette Midler. Bon Jovi hasn't had a top 20 hit in almost twenty years, but it doesn't stop them from being successful.

I think the problem with the stage act of Cyrus at the VMA's is that it was a very 'adult' act, to an audience with a plurality of impressionable minors, teens, and pre-teens. She is a lousy singer and has to use an 'act' to get attention and make more money. I wish the VMAs would mature and get away from such performances, feature real talent (like for example Alicia Keys), not give most of it's awards as this year to white performers (doing R&B based music) who are more famous for sensational acts.
Never heard the term before this came out. From the 30 seconds or so of video I saw, we used to call it "dirty dancing"
Hardly anything new. Singers have done raunchy things for decades. Heck, when I saw the Stones in 1975, Mick Jagger rode a giant blow-up dildo during "Star Star" - and that's the polite name for the song
This just seems to be Ms. Cyrus:
Trying to hard to say I am not Hannah Montana
Trying to hard to extend her 15 minutes
Trying to hard to be sexy
Trying too hard to shock

The VMAs are just a contest to see who can be on the front page of TMZ the next day. The fact that MTV is still relevant is sad. Though someone made a funny Vine with her father https://vine.co/v/hiB0JPTOd3b . That was the only thing I actually watched from the VMAs. I have twitter to tell me about all the stupid stuff.

It would be shocking if she wrote an excellent book, or sang well. This? Typical Disney. The vibes aren't cute coming out of Disney. It seems like psychotic girl stuff mixed with some kind of lechery at the editorial level.

Cry for attention or help? Give me a break! What she craves are the dollars she is and will be making. IMO I don't understand why these talentless "stars" are in such demand although s-e-x has something to do with it. Nothing sells better.

All she can really do is dress like a prostitot and prance around, she sure as hell can't sing and that crap she bleats is anything but music. This goes for Britney Spears, Nikki Minaj and to a lesser extent the very leggy Katy Perry. Next, look for Miley to become a porn star and call herself Have Her Mountana!
