Cher has come out and totally destroyed Miley Cyrus by slamming Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs. Cher went on the show CBS Sunday Morning and discussed how much she hated Cyrus’ controversial performance on the awards show. During that performance, Cyrus set the internet on fire with her bizarre antics, which included lots of twerking and grinding of her crotch against various people and objects.
Cher did not stop short of showing her real feelings for the performance, saying “I just thought all of it was terrible. Outfit, terrible. Dancing, terrible. Singing, average. Performance, terrible. If she’d just come out there and kicked ass, even though I don’t think that I would have loved it, I would have respected it, and I would have appreciated it. That whole area that she was in was not something that I would gravitate to myself, but I would have thought, ‘Boy, you did that. I give you props.'”
Cher’s comments are a little bit unusual. Normally, performers tend to support each other, but Cher has nothing to lose by having a loose tongue. After all, she’s a supreme diva with real talent who has a long and distinguished career for which she is 100% responsible. This stands in direct contrast to Miley Cyrus, who is short on talent and whose career is the handiwork of her famous father, Billy Ray.
Cher had previously told USA Today that she hated the performance, saying “She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”
She was referring to Cyrus’ habit during the VMA performance of sticking her tongue way out of her mouth and twisting it to the side, much in the same manner a cow chews on grass. Many viewers found this behavior very strange indeed and even led some to question if Miley Cyrus was on drugs during the performance or if she has some kind of mental disorder.
Cyrus has also appeared naked in her latest video, Wrecking Ball, although of course her naughty bits are obscured. She leaves nothing to the imagination when it comes to the question if she was really naked, because it’s apparent the answer is yes. The people on set must have really gotten an eyeful!
There has been a lot of buzz online about the performance, and very little of it positive. However, that age –old question always arises: Is there such a thing as bad press? Some predicted that Miley Cyrus’ career would be over after her performance at the VMAs, but since that fateful night, she has been one of the top trending stories on Google News every day. Is it helping or hurting her that she chose such an overtly sexual expression at the awards?
Now that Miley Cyrus has been destroyed by Cher, will it do more to hurt or bolster her career? Who know? But one thing we do know: Cher is now a bit contrite about her own outburst. She took to Twitter to back pedal just a little bit but stopped short of apologizing, saying “This is not an apology 4 what I thought,” she added. “It’s a reminder, that if I don’t practice my principles, I loose them.” (Sic) Could Cher be feeling just a wee bit guilty? If the two women see each other in the near future at an awards show or Hollywood hot spot, it’s sure to be awkward!
