People having been giving Miley Cyrus a lot of attention for her VMA Performance, but leave out the fact that there was another person there. That person is American-Canadian singer, Robin Thicke.
Cyrus performed at the Video Music Awards on MTV with Thicke as an accomplice. Many did not see his presence to be negative or derogatory.
Thicke, 36, sat down in an interview with Oprah where she questioned him about the performance; she specifically asked what he thought about the raunchy performance. “I’m not thinking sex; I’m thinking fun…I’m not really paying attention to all that. That’s on her,” he said in a playful voice.
“Listen I’m the twerkee. I’m twerked upon,” said Thicke, seemingly oblivious to the possibility that is was a bit provocative.
Cyrus proved Thicke’s not-so-innocence on the Ellen Degeneres Show: ” He was in rehearsal [for the VMAs] as much as I was, and loving it people,” she said. On the subject of double standards, Cyrus said to Ellen Degeneres on,” No one cares about the man behind the booty. You only care about the one that‘s shaking it.”
The interview of Robin Thicke with Oprah Winfree will air on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on OWN this Sunday at 9/8c .
