Miley Cyrus wasn’t on drugs during her MTV VMAs performance, she was only acting.
Cyrus was criticized for “twerking” with fellow performer Robin Thicke and for using references to “Mandy”(MDMA) and cocaine during her performance, which were beeped out by MTV during its broadcast of the awards ceremony.
The singer responded to critics today saying, “I wasn’t on drugs at all, I just wanted people to think I was. It was an act, I mean for God’s sake I’m not Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse.”
“I really want to break into the EDM scene. It’s become so popular and I just love Deadmau5, Skrillex, Steve Aoki and the rest of those guys, not David Guetta though, his stuff is way too commercial for me. I was hoping that if one of those guys thought I was a slutty, junky, they would want to do a collaboration with me,” she continued.
And about twerking with Robin Thicke she said:
” Did people really think I was seriously twerking on Robin Thicke. Eww, he’s like 36 or something that’s totally gross.”
Sorry about that Robin.
Meanwhile, the Parents Television Council blasted MTV for the telecast, condemning Cyrus’ raunchy performance with Robin Thicke and the show as a whole.
“MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials — while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable,” the watchdog group’s director of public policy, Dan Isett, said in a statement.
“This much is absolutely clear: MTV marketed adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children,” Isett continued.
“MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate ‘twerking’ in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds? How is it appropriate for children to watch Lady Gaga strip down to a bikini in the opening act?”
