Miley Cyrus's tongue-wagging (and other lewd acts) at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards last night, Aug. 25, has set everyone's tongue wagging today as we all try to process what exactly happened when the former Hannah Montana star took to the Brooklyn stage.
Miley was supposed to perform her summer hit "We Can't Stop," which would then segue into Robin a performance of "Blurred Lines."
But as she descended a staircase from a giant robot teddy bear, sticking out her tongue to its maximum extension, viewers knew they were in for a whole new, NSFW side of Miley.
She then proceeded to play air guitar right over her you-know-what, thrust her pelvis this way and that, twerk, spank a woman dressed as a bear, strip to her nude-colored underwear, rub her crotch with a giant foam finger, graze that foam finger over the crotch of Robin Thicke, grind her butt on his crotch, thrust the foam finger from her crotch, and make out with Robin's neck.
Predictably, the show's teenaged audience members screamed and cheered after the performance. But some of the stars in attendance didn't know what to make of the risque display. The cameras showed Drake averting his eyes as Miley performed. Rihanna dutifully watched but looked appalled. And Taylor Swift covered her eyes, laughing uncontrollably.
And celebs were even harsher on Twitter:
What do you think, Cyrusians? Is Hollywood being too harsh on the Bangerz pop star? Or did Miley cross a few (hundred) blurred lines of decency last night?
