Miley Cyrus Says, “I’m Not Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse”

Miley Cyrus Says 'I'm Not Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse'

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?”

She’s as bad as Britney but can’t hold a candle to the talents Amy had -Amy Winehouse is a musical legend -FACT.

Sherry | August 27th, 2013

The only thing that bothered me about Miley’s comments was the reference to Robin being too old and it disgusted her that anyone thought she was twerking on Robin. Who does she think she is? Doesn’t she think before she comments?

Emily | August 27th, 2013

She is absolutely too ridiculous.

Ali | August 28th, 2013

Clearly, she’s Miley Cyrus…but she’s still acting in similar ways that they did. And it’s not a good look.

Gary | August 28th, 2013

No she’s not Amy Winehouse -she had “real” talent,a genuine performer among the plastic Britney Miley types.
Amy did jazz,blues,soul,ska,pop and ballads.
Miley Cyrus can only dream of having an ounce of Amys musical talent.I’m looking forward to next years Asif Kapadia film about Amy.

Zeeshan | August 28th, 2013

Yes, you are not Amy Winehouse. She had talent.

Stephanie | August 29th, 2013

Agree with Zeeshan, you’re not Amy Winehouse. She was talented and had an amazing voice unlike Miley the ugly f**k.

Marco Antonio Coutinho | August 29th, 2013

Of course, Miley Cyrus is not Amy Winehouse. Amy was a great artist!

Mark | August 31st, 2013

obviously she’s not amy winehouse, amy was real talent who could sing live and also in the studio, she’s funny comparing herself to a singer-songwriter because amy didn’t use her body, ass and boobies to promote herself she used her voice but what you did is twerking and failing at singing live because using autotune we can all do it.

amy drunk herself to death who cares cause at least she could write songs and sing them on stage
