Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words.... #pitchystrippers— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) August 26, 2013
You know who she's talking about. (Gaga, too, probably.)
Meanwhile, the Parents Television Council has condemned last night's festivities, which is surprising only because Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus, sits on the advisory board. (He did not respond to the New York Times' request for comment, but he did Tweet last night: "Thanking God for so many blessings tonight. Continue to pray for world peace. More love … less hate.”) TMZ reports that, contrary to rumor, Robin Thicke's wife Paula Patton had seen rehearsals and was totally okay with Miley's performance (she said the same thing about the "Blurred Lines" video.) His mom was less impressed: ""I don't understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I think she's misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial." More opinions to come, we're sure.
