Miley Cyrus performed "We Can't Stop" during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in New York on Sunday at the Barclays Center.
After her act, Cyrus and singer Robin Thicke sang “Blurred Lines” together.
But throughout her performance, former Disney star kept on twerking and even stripped off her costume which made many viewers feel rather uncomfortable.
“Miley embraced her role as the new twerk queen as she stripped off her bear-emblazoned leotard to cavort with Robin Thicke for a performance of the singer's Pharrell Williams-produced mega-hit "Blurred Lines," which is in the running for Video of the Year. With Thicke clad in a black-and-white-striped suit, Miley gave him an up close and personal private twerk show as the song climaxed.”

Looks like Miley Cyrus has offended and disappointed a lot of people including her fans.
Rihanna and One Direction present at the event didn’t look really amused either:
