Miley Cyrus was just thrown some colorful words of support from her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus—a quote she then went and shared via Twitter.
What did he say?
Go ahead and picture that…and then give yourself a minute to fully let that shiver running down your spine exit your mortal body.
Miley’s controversial performance at the VMAs is all the blogs and those blogs’ online neighbors are talking about the past couple of days, but the criticisms are no sweat off Miley’s nude rubber bikini-clad back. Because she can officially call her dad her partner-in-twerking-crime.
Miley’s creative director Diane Martel, the woman behind the music videos of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines,” defended the singer in the wake of all the backlash.
“Miley had ideas about how she wanted to perform,” Diane said. “She was excited to play it mega-campy style.”
Diane also went on to further explain Miley’s motives to wag her tongue about; a gesture that was displayed with more irony than the media’s giving her credit for, she insists.
“For the geriatric crew, the tongue out is not sexual,” said Diane. “It’s selfie code. It’s mocking ‘pretty.’ It’s not for your gaze. It’s for a young audience’s gaze. There seems to be an enormous generation gap…I am shocked by their shock…At the heart of this noise you have a young woman playing with a performance.”
