I feel bad that I wasn't here yesterday as I didn't get to comment on Miley-gate. HOLY CRAP.. this performance blew UP. Here's my take:
Miley wins. Think of a show like the VMAs as a major sporting event.. like The Super Bowl for example. The day after a show like the VMAs.. I would argue that the person who grabs the most headlines is the person who has emerged victorious. Miley took at least 90% of the headlines on Monday and therefore is the winner.
Shocking? Disturbing? Innapropriate? As far as the actual performance goes.. I refuse to call it any of those things. Last week, there was a chemical weapons terrorist attack in Syria and I saw NBC Nightly News show rows of dead children on national television. That was innapropriate, shocking, and disturbing. In a world there I saw that on the same screen as I saw Miley twerk.. I can't call what she did disgusting.
All of that being said.. I do have to say that my favorite Tweet of the night was someone who wrote that Miley "looks like a high school girl at a college party". I have a warning for any parents who may have just sent their little girl to begin her freshman year of college. What you saw Miley do at the VMAs is what your daughter is going to be doing this weekend at her first college party.
All of that being said.. can i recommend a funny article to you? Here's The Associated Press' (yes, even the AP is reporting on Miley.. another example of just how big she won) article on why Twerking is now officially dead.
