Miley Cyrus: ‘I wasn’t on drugs at all, I just wanted people to think I was. It was an act, I mean for God’s sake I’m not Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse. I really want to break into the EDM scene. It’s become so popular and I just love Deadmau5, Skrillex, Steve Aoki and the rest of those guys, not David Guetta though, his stuff is way too commercial for me.
I was hoping that if one of those guys thought I was a slutty, junky, they would want to do a collaboration with me. Did people really think I was seriously twerking on Robin Thicke. Eww, he’s like 36 or something that’s totally gross.’ Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records inquired into Cyrus featuring on an Aoki track.
VMA DRAMA: The View cohost Sherri Shepard: ‘Miley is goin’ to hell in a twerkin’ hand basket, that girl. When I was growing up, it wasn’t called twerkin’. They got these cute artistic names for it. ..That was called a ho move right there. I think she’s going to get into a lot of trouble.’
Robin Thicke’s mom: ‘I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy. ..I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is now I can never ‘unsee’ it.
Him? Loved it. I love that suit, the black and white suit. I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I just don’t understand. I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial.’
Miley owned Twitter and iTunes because of VMAs. ‘Wrecking Ball’ sold around 80,000 to 90,000 copies in less than two full days on sale. Miley will have two top 20 on this week’s Digital Songs chart. ‘Twerking’ is now in Oxford’s Dictionary because of Sexy Miley. What YOU didn’t see at VMAS!
Producer on Miley & Britney’s upcoming duet: ‘It’s fun, exciting [music]. We got one with that Britney.’ Billy Ray could care less: ‘Of course I’ll always be here for Miley. Can’t wait [to] see her when she gets home. She’s still my little girl and I’m still her dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change.’
Justin Timberlake told 102.7: ‘My favorite part of the Miley Cyrus performance is the Smith family reaction. I was late to the game on that. I was just shown that this morning, so it was fresh in my mind. Listen, man, you know, it’s the VMAs. What did you guys expect?. I like Miley. I like her a lot. I think, you know, she’s young.
She’s letting everyone know that she’s growing up. I just think it’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the GRAMMYs. Let her do her thing. You know? Madonna: Wedding suit, humping the stage. Britney: Strip tease. This is not an uncommon thing. I actually thought all the bears were really cool!’
