Miley Cyrus promised that her performance at the 2013 VMAs would be crazier than anything the show had seen before. She delivered. Her performance was sexual, and included her stripping down to her underwear. Miley Cyrus planned on being memorable, and succeeded without a doubt.
Declaring earlier on Sunday that she would provide a memorable moment at the VMAs, Miley said that “we’ve got better in store for you guys, it’s going be even crazier than the kiss.”
Pushing the envelope is the way to make people notice in today’s world, and Miley Cyrus certainly did that. Pulling all the stops to put on a show, she twerked her way to a crazy successful performance at the VMAs.
Her routine had everything. Mixing things up goes almost as far as pushing the envelope. Dancing and twerking with bears was only the tip of the ice berg. Miley would then strip down to a tan bikini and sing a duet with Robin Thicke. During that duet she suggestively gestured with a foam hand towards the lower half of her body.
Sexual dancing that perhaps wasn’t the best example for the younger generation watching the show, Miley Cyrus is certain to have people talking about her. They say there is no such thing as bad advertising, stirring up controversy with her incredibly sexual dancing and twerking will keep her name on the tips of the world’s tongue moving forward.
Delivering on a promise of making a crazy moment at the VMAs is an understatement, Miley set the bar for next year’s show. Not everyone is going to like it, but there will be many a water cooler discussion as the work week kicks off Monday.
