With the summer quickly dwindling down and with a new month on the horizon, it was once again time for another award show, this being the summer classic, the Video Music Award show. This years show was certainly filled with fashion, glamour, a little bit of twerking and of course talented artist taking home the moonman icon trophy. Here is a list of some of the winners from Monday night show:
Video of the Year: Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors”
Best Hip-Hop Video: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton – “Can’t Hold Us”
Best Male Video: Bruno Mars – “Locked Out of Heaven”
Best Female Video: Taylor Swift – “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Best Pop Video: Selena Gomez – “Come and Get It”
Best Song Of the Summer: One Direction – “Best Song Ever”
Best Direction: Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z – “Suit & Tie”
For most of the show it was all about the classy and fashionable award winners and the speaks, until Miley Cyrus put on a performance that not only turned heads (Literally) but put on a social media frenzy bomb.
The once innocent looking Disney star, Hanna Montana appears to be going through a bit of a “Bad Girl” phase and her performance at the VMA’s proved that she is anything but the family friendly girl you use to know. The pop star started off singing her hit song “We Can’t Stop” in a raunchy outfit and for some reason a foam finger, to which was doing sensual things during the performance.
That would be just the beginning as she stripped off the top layer of her outfit. She did a duel performance with summer heart throb, Robin Thicke. Besides thousands of people saying Robin Thicke looked liked Beatle juice because of his black and white stripped outfit, people were talking even more about how the 20-year old Miley Cyrus was twerking and backing against Robin Thicke.
Robin Thicke’s mom and celebs took to twitter to voice their opinion on the performance.
“I didn’t understand what the young girl was trying to do, I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son,” Gloria Loring said.
The performance was so “X-Rated” that it even got the attention of the Parents Television Council, which issued a statement to MTV blasting them and stating that they are marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former stars. The director for PTC had this to say about MTV:
“MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate ‘twerking’ in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?,”
“Just saw a couple performances from the VMA’s last night. 2 words”…. #pitchystrippers Kelly Clarkson tweeted.
“Remind me to never let my kids into showbiz… Thanks,” Nick Cannon tweeted.
Cyrus’ mom stood and applauded and cheered her daughter after the end of the performance, while Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted that he is thanking God for so many blessings tonight. Continue to pray for world peace. More love …less hate.
However, on a high note, there was the highly anticipated reunion of America’s boy band NSYNC, during Justin Timberland’s amazing medley performance that excited the crowd. NSYNC got in on the mix with him as the crowd erupted with flash backs of the bands most successful songs.
Overall, the whole award show was very entertaining, and somehow Miley Cryus made Lady Gaga look normal.
