Donald: ‘Miley, don’t let them get you down, they’re all jealous!’
Pre-order Bang Miley HERE! 59-year-old entrepreneur INVENTOR OF THE FOAM FINGER told FOX Sports: ‘She took an honorable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it.
If I had a choice between Julie Andrews singing ‘The Sound of Music’ and Miley Cyrus doing ‘Can’t Stop,’ I’d go the Julie Andrews route. Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident. As for Miley Cyrus, let’s hope she can outlive this event and also survive.’
TIME.com BASHING MILEY: Most of the media backlash focused on Cyrus’ crass opportunism, which stole the show from Lady Gaga, normally no slouch in the foot-stamping look-at-me department. But the real scandal was how atrocious Cyrus’ performance was in artistic terms.
She was clumsy, flat-footed and cringingly unsexy, an effect heightened by her manic grin. Unfortunately, the media spotlight so cheaply won by Cyrus will inevitably spur repeats of her silly stunt, by her and others.
What was perhaps most embarrassing about Miley Cyrus’ dismal gig was its cutesy toys, a giant teddy bear from which she popped to cavort with a dance troupe in fuzzy bear drag. Intended to satirize her Disney past, it signaled instead the childishness of Cyrus’ notion of sexuality, which has become simply a cartoonish gimmick to disguise a lack of professional focus.
Sex isn’t just exposed flesh and crude gestures. The greatest performers, like Madonna in a canonical video such as ‘Vogue,’ know how to use suggestion and mystery to project the magic of sexual allure. Miley, go back to school!
