I have had a pretty high tolerance for Miley’s antics, but I have to wonder how Afeni Shakur and Voletta Wallace feel about this 20-year-old twit wearing their dead sons’ faces across her ass in yet another attempt to prove how “down” she is. Call me crazy, but I find Miley’s red carpet outfit at last night’s MTV EMAs to be disrespectful. [Photos: Getty Images]
Last night, MTV held their Euro version of the VMAs, called the EMAs — the purpose of which I don’t understand, as the same damn people win — in Amsterdam. After Miley Cyrus won the award for Best Video, for the Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball,” she celebrated by lighting a joint on stage. Because it’s Amsterdam! And Miley is in her “Look at meeeeee! I’m so craaaaazy and edddddgyyyyy and I smoke WEEEEEED” phase of life, which I also went through around the same age so I can’t hate too much. Anyway, unless Miley is smoking 15 joints a day like Lady Gaga, I am not impressed.
I generally don’t take Joan Rivers‘ opinion on anything seriously – besides maybe plastic surgery – so I’m not sure that her recent rant about Miley Cyrus will make many waves in Hollywood. However, she clearly felt she needed to lash out at the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer, who Joan describes as “disgusting”. Read Joan Rivers’ quote on Evil Beet Gossip…
Look at his little hair buns! I don’t care for the One Direction’s music, or whatever they’re called, but I like this cheeky Harry Styles lad. I do not, however, like the person who took these photos. Learn how to focus, brah. [Buzzfeed]
“I think there’s a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively. I think you can be as creative as you want to be and as inventive as you want to be…you can roll out old ideas and old thoughts and give them a new coat of paint. But the idea of whipping out the girls, I don’t know, there’s a grossness to it that I think is not flattering…to the women themselves.”
Legendary diva Bette Midler is not someone we would have expected to weigh in on Mileygate. But when asked by Katie Couric about her thoughts on the sexualization of young female performers, she killed it. I really like the line about pushing the envelope “creatively” versus “sexually” and how they are not the same thing. I know Miley Cyrus has Dolly Parton, another legendary diva, as her godmother but Auntie Bette sounds pretty smart, too. [Perez Hilton] [Images via Getty]
