Miley Cyrus’s duet of Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs was pretty raunchy; but, according to Miley, it was even raunchier than what was shown on TV. Many parts of their performance were censored by MTV, so what home audiences saw was actually tame compared to other things they did!
MTV cut out of the act bits that even they thought went beyond the pale. They exerted their editing privileges, at least, to an extent, and cut out certain things that Miley did that were seen by the audience there that Sunday night.
For instance, Miley related to Fashion magazine (Nov. issue) that she was “trying to slap Robin’s a**” even though that was not show on TVs across the country and the world.
Miley then added that the editors “cut almost everything I did.”
“I was trying to slap Robin’s a** but no one saw it! Believe me! MTV edited so much,” Cyrus told Fashion magazine in their November issue. “They cut almost everything I did.”
Miley, fully aware that their performance generated a lot of controversy, still declares that she was “proud” of how she and Robin did.
She said that maybe music needed something like that, as it’s “really stale right now.” Miley went as far as to call her duet with Robin Thicke “a breath of fresh air,” and added that if you didn’t get it, “you weren’t meant to.”
‘NSYNC member Lance Bass didn’t think much of the duet, saying that the performance “didn’t do anything for me.” However, he mentioned that it did what Miley wanted it to do, by getting her the country’s number one album; so, he said “kudos to her for figuring it out.”
Another example of Miley’s using her natural assets to sell her image and more albums is that one version of her album due out in October has her nude on the cover. Also, she can be seen without clothes on the cover of Rolling Stone’s October 10 issue.
She has her tongue out, and is licking her shoulder. Sorry, guys/girls; her breasts aren’t exposed, if you were wondering about that — she has her arms folded to cover her breasts.
In the venerable magazine, Cyrus talks about the MTV VMAs, and her role –at least, in her eyes — as a “mentor” of Justin Bieber. Well, with that settled, we don’t have to worry about him ever acting crazy again….
She says, of Bieber, that he often isn’t taken “seriously,” but that he’s actually a pretty good musician and “can play the drums, he really can play guitar, he really can sing.”
Miley said that she doesn’t want to see Justin become a “joke,” like “Vanilla Ice.”
Commenting on what some of her critics are saying about her, that she’ trying to act too much as if she was black, “but she’s got the flattest a** ever,” Miley doesn’t deny that might be true — instead, she said she sees the truth in it. “I’m 108 pounds! I know!”
Also, as to the comments of some people who wondered if Miley really considered what she did that night to be “sexy,” she stated that she “wasn’t trying to be sexy,” and that, if she had been trying, she “could have been sexy.” She continued, saying that she can “dance a lot better than I was dancing.”
“People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever.’ I’m like, I’m 108 pounds! I know! Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that s**t again,” she says. Miley reveals that at that time, “I wasn’t trying to be sexy. If I was trying to be sexy, I could have been sexy. I can dance a lot better than I was dancing.”
Miley, in the interview, also brings up the issue of the criticism being one-sided, that hardly anyone said anything about Robin Thicke, in Miley’s words, “the man behind the ass.” That is, for the most part, true, though there have been some articles about Robin having a “wardrobe malfunction.”
So much food for thought. If we were getting just the tame version of Miley and Robin’s performance, it’s no wonder that Will Smith didn’t especially want his kids that he took with him that night to see the duet perform. With Miley totally nude riding astride a wrecking ball in her latest video, “Wrecking Ball,” perhaps we will one day look back on her VMAs performance with Robin Thicke as being mild in comparison to other things that she’s done.
