Miley Cyrus raised many eyebrows after her interesting performance at the Video Music Awards (VMAs) last Sunday. The Disney star-turned-pop princess seemed to be having a grand time on stage, but many viewers were not impressed. Fans and viewers have not hesitated to express their opinions on Cyrus’ performance, but Miley has finally decided to quiet the naysayers.
The pop star felt like her performance was no more controversial than those of past VMA performances such as Madonna and Britney Spears, but viewers saw that as no excuse for Cyrus’ boisterous performance.
“They’re over-thinking it. You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it, ’cause that’s just me,” Cyrus said on Tuesday.
It was obvious to everyone who witnessed the show that Cyrus did not think her entire performance through; from the props and decorations to the reaction from her fans and viewers. Using voluptuous African-American women as the accessories and her sexual behavior along with her scanty clothing were absolutely inappropriate. Cyrus failed to consider the aspects of her performance that could have been received as offensive and, quite frankly, disrespectful.
The performance, in its entirety, was one for the books, but most of the memories will not be so pleasant. It seems as if Miley and the media have only scratched the surface with her quirky shows and their aggressive opinion.
