In case you've been living under a rock, kindly educate yourself with Miley's lady ways by reading this.
So yes, Miley Cyrus who became famous for playing Hannah Montana (aka the Clark Kent Of Disney Kids. I mean seriously, how can you not recognize someone who simply wears a wig as a disguise?) shocked everybody with her “scandalous” VMA performance. To be honest, I didn't find it scandalous. All I saw was a young celebrity who desperately wants attention, is that so shocking? Celebrities won't be celebrities if they don't get attention. That's as important as water and oxygen to them. Plus, I'm pretty sure she knows what she was doing.
After all, bad publicity is STILL publicity, which is why the internet was bombarded with Miley memes as soon as her performance was over.
Now, I'm not a fan of Miley Cyrus, but I completely have no complaints for what she did. Parents are exclaiming that she's a bad influence to their children...but I think the more important question is, why the heck would you let your children watch the VMAs? It's not like this is the first time a pop sensation decided to go racy. Madonna had the 80's. Britney Spears had the 90's.
And speaking of Britney Spears, it makes me angry whenever I hear people comparing Miley and Britney. Some even went ahead and placed Britney on a pedestal, claiming that she's the queen of VMA performances. 2000 Britney reigned supreme, I'll give her that. But am I the only one who still remembers the 2007 Britney? Because that's the first thing that comes to my mind whenever I think of the word “trainwreck”. Miley might have looked ridiculous, but at least it seems like she was completely aware of what she was doing. 2007 Britney, on the otherhand, was obviously White Girl Wasted. Anybody with a common sense knows that being White Girl Wasted on national television is the last thing you want to happen, unless you want Southern belles to exclaim, “bless her heart”, which is the polite way of saying, “gurrrl you so nasty.”
