Miley Cryus’ MTV VMA 2013 performance is all sorts of outrageous. Even for seasoned performers, it really was quite shocking and outrageous. We know Miley Cyrus likes being shocking and outrageous, but even for hardcore Miley Cyrus fans, this would be something extreme.
While MTV usually likes to shock its audiences, and have succeeded very well in doing so in the past, Miley’s performance on VMA 2013 eclipsed the shock factor of even Lady Gaga. 20 year old Miley twerked and sung her way through her 6 something minutes performance of We Can’t Stop, along with Robin Thicke who performed his runaway hit Blurred Lines and Give it 2 U with Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Miley Cyrus twerked and stripped down to a tiny flesh colored bikini with dancing bears around her, as she gyrated and draped herself all over singer Robin Thicke. Probably some sort of warning would have been better from MTV because in no way was Miley Cyrus’ performance suitable for a family rated show.
So uncomfortable was her performance that Drake didn’t even look into the direction of the stage while most of the crowd just cringed in their seats. Various images and screen grabs are floating around the web and really, the whole adage about pictures speaking more than a thousand words couldn’t possibly hold more truth. Perhaps the most accurate would be Will Smith and his family’s reaction:

The fact that Miley Cyrus has managed to outrage, discomfort, and confuse mostly everyone says a lot about the direction the talented tween’s music career is going to take. Some might say that Miley might just be trying a bit too hard to break out, but others might justify it with her need to express herself.Suffice it to say that for all of what its worth Miley Cyrus has broken out of her Disney queen persona.
