Just like she denied pole-dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley Cyrus took to her blog to deny a so-called “lesbian kiss” on “Britain’s Got Talent.” Instead, Miley said, she and a lady backup dancer were just “rock[ing] out with each other.”
Miley. Honey. Listen to me. I’m going to tell you this because I actually kind of like you:
Stop bulls**ting us.Miley blogged on her website this weekend:
“Thank you for all the support you all show me. Sometimes youre [sic] the only thing keepin’ me goin’ strong! There are so many people out there that are so negative and always causing new issues. I feel like the entertainment industry has become nothing but a disgusting tabloid.
.. During my performance I supposedly “KISSED A GIRL” and this is the newest thing to cause controversy. I promise you I did not kiss her and it is ridiculous that two entertainers cant [sic] even rock out with each other without the media making it some type of story. I really hope my fans are not disappointed in me because the truth is I did nothing wrong. I got up there and did my job which is to perform to the best of my ability. I just want to put an end to this right now and just say one thing to everyone out there making this performance such a big deal.
GET OVER IT! NOTHING HAPPENED. THERE ARE WAYYYYYYY MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN THE WORLD. Lets [sic] start focusing a little less on making up ignorant rumors and focus a little more on world peace!”
Your protestations are falling on deaf ears; it’s pretty clear you do stuff just to deny it ever happened later. Last year, you rolled onstage on top of an ice cream cart with a pole. Technically, you didn’t pole dance on it, but you held onto the pole and danced around it. For the horrified mothers of your 9-year-old “Hannah Montana” fans and dirty old men alike, the symbolism was there.
Last week on “Britain’s Got Talent,” you performed “Can’t Be Tamed” and pulled a backup dancer by her arms, bent over her face and bopped your mouth over her face. Maybe you didn’t technically touch your lips to her lips, but don’t split hairs. That’s how it was choreographed to look on TV.
Britney Spears never pulled this kind of crap. When she, Madonna and Christina Aguilera went the faux lesbianism route, they just did it. If you’re going to resort to publicity stunts — like being a 17-year-old who pole dances and kisses lady backup dancers onstage — don’t insult your audience by acting like they’re out to make you look bad. You’re not a victim of the media. You’re playing the media.
Just own it, girl, ’cause it’s getting tedious. [New York Post]
