AMSTERDAM (AP) -- She couldn't resist. Singer Miley Cyrus smoked a joint on stage and twerked with a dwarf during the MTV EMAs on Sunday.The 20-year old pop star also took home the Best Video award for her hit song "Wrecking Ball" during a show with a strong lineup of other performers including Eminem and Katy Perry.Cyrus opened the space-themed show singing the song "We Can't Stop," while wearing a silver spandex suit and gyrating her buttocks in the move known as twerking in the general direction of her smaller female dance partner.
By contrast, we can all guess that little Miley has sat down with an entire army of PR gurus and they've told her exactly what to wear, what to say and what to do to appear "cool". And that's "cool" in a very packaged, media friendly way – not "cool" in a Britney Spears "addicted to twinkies and living in a van down by the river" way (seriously, every live performance of Britney's should be accompanied by a telephone number you can call to make a donation). So on to the Dutch stage Miss Cyrus goes, puffing a joint like she's James Dean on acid. Here's some other things she might do to make her look even more rebellious:- Park in a disabled parking space- Skip a fine on some overdue library books- Not vote (works for Russell Brand)- Stick her head out of a train window- Demand to see Barack Obama's birth certificate- Shoot a man in Reno just to watch him die (carries the risk of sitting in a prison cell, listening to trains pass and crying a lot)It's seriously depressing that we now live a culture where everything is so hopelessly contrived. But it's even more depressing that things are actually contrived to appear ugly. Ideals of form and beauty are thrown out of the window in preference for a teenage carnival of alcohol, sex and drugs that drags on long into the dawn, to the harshest part of the day when everyone looks exhausted, old and full of regret. No one can possibly take any joy from this unmerry-go-round of hopelessness.Oh Miley Cyrus, don't let the gods of trash pop culture ruin you. Don't clop around the stage in a tiny ballet outfit and outsized shoes, looking like you're only carrying a purse to be sick in to. Come back to us, our sweet Hannah Montana.
Slight aside.Someone ever actually says "twerking" in front of me, they better have a fine dentist.I detest that word.
Aside from being vulgar, the woman has no shape, and is an embarrassingly poor dancer, and not so much a singer. Her attraction for the kids are that they get to see a porno show without showing ID.
I don't know who is going to come to a worse end - Miley or Bieber.
