From her gyrating hips, low dips and inability to sing, Miley Cyrus shocked the world last night at the MTV Video Music Awards 2013. My mother and I were speechless as we saw ginormous bears, strapped on the backs of grown women, bouncing and grinding around the stage. Miley – single handedly – took the song of the summer, Robin Thicke featuring Pharrell Williams and T.I.’s Blurred Lines, and butchered it with her unsteady, out of breathe vocals.
No one really knows what was going through her mind as she performed so vulgarly. Evidently, her nude two piece is a replica from Robin Thicke’s PG version of the Blurred Lines Video, but besides that I was completely lost. Initially when I watched Miley’s video for We Can’t Stop I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Loving the melody of the song, I began to think long and hard about her motives. It could be possible that she was making a parody of other pop artists’s videos, like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, who often create fantasies, whimsical stories, or cutting edge cinematography videos. However, Miley isn’t that smart, and I doubt the people who represent her are either. Clearly, there is no explanation for her insane video or performance last night.
She left me completely shocked, and wondering, “Did Robin Thicke know Miley was going to perform this way? Where is Robin’s wife in the audience? I would love to see a pan of her reaction, live on television, to this twenty something slut-show with horns”.
