Miley Cyrus Performed “Midnight Sky” At The MTV VMAs And Straddled A Disco Ball As A Reference To Wrecking Ball
In 2013 Miley Cyrus cemented her spot in VMAs history by “twerking” her ass into
Beetlejuice’s Robin Thicke’s half-Canuck crotch. A couple years later she hosted the show in full Battlefield Earth drag (read: white person dreads), and Nicki Minaj asked, “Miley, what’s good?” Since then she’s shown up with drag queens and performed a few entirely forgettable songs.
Now it’s 2020, and MTV’s prodigal daughter has returned once again. This year Miley performed her new single “Midnight Sky” (which lost the award for Song of the Summer), and ended the performance by straddling a giant disco ball, in an ode to her classic song “Wrecking Ball”.
No, Miley Cyrus, NO! You leave those innocent puppets alone! It’s bad enough that poor foam hand was dragged into your VMA performance two years ago. Haven’t humanoid hand-operated fabric objects been through enough?
But still, it sounds like someone really wants to see Miley up on stage at the MTV VMA’s on Sunday doing not-right things with puppets. In a surprising twist, it’s not actually Miley Cyrus who is pushing for it.
Maybe that explains why Katy Perry had to postpone a whole bunch of shows on her Witness Tour; she just needs extra time to mentally prepare the stunt of the year! On August 27th, Katy Perry will host the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. According to The Daily Star UK – so yeah, you’re right to be reaching for a grain of salt – Taylor Swift might grace Katy’s stage with her presence at the MTV VMA’s.
“Oh God, don’t look now, but I think Alfalfa Sprout of Sunnybrook Farm is trying to look sexy for the paps again… My heart can’t take anymore secondhand embarrassment” is what that dude behind her is thinking to himself, obviously.
Taylor Swift reportedly didn’t submit herself for any MTV VMA nominations and so she didn’t get any. There’s really no reason for her to go to the VMAs this Sunday in NYC, but since she’s one to never miss out on an opportunity to trend on Twitter, I figured she’d show up with a boysenberry-scented lawsuit to throw at those diabolical villains Kanye West and Kim Kartrashian. But a source “exclusively” confirms to People that even though Taylor is in NYC right now, she’s sitting out the VMAs this year. Uh huh… I’m really sure she’s going to sit this one out.
The nominees for the 2016 MTV VMAs were announced earlier today. The bad news for Taylor Swift is that she got zero nominations. The good news for Taylor Swift is that two people she’s currently feuding with got nominations, which means her name will automatically get dragged into just about every conversation about the MTV VMAs on the internet today. Congratulations, Taylor!
Emoji mogul, Slut Walk founder, and now talk show host Amber Rose has something to say. Has she a talk show? Good on her! This clip (see below) didn’t irritate me. It’s because Amber’s ENORMOUS boobs transfixed me. They look like she’s yoked two feeding piglets. Those are some mammaries. Tits aside, Amber used her new VH-1 talk show as a platform from which to provide the earth with her take on the Kim and Kanye Kardashian-West vs. Taylor Swift situation. Did Amber attend the #KimExposedTaylorParty? Did she add a snake emoji to that deceptive Laura Ingalls Wilder impersonator’s Instagram? Kinda.
USWeekly reports that Amber, admitting that she’s not her ex MC Finger Puppet’s “biggest fan,” cited the 2009 VMAs “Ima let you finish“ incident as evidence that Kanye wouldn’t go in on Tay Tay again.
“It was just a very hard time for him,” she recalled. “I watched people say that they did not want to work with him anymore because of it. … I know that Kanye would never ever go through that again by not calling Taylor and say, ‘Heads up, I’m about to go write this verse real quick. Just wanted to make sure you’re cool with it,’” Rose said. “I know that about Kanye.”
“So, I say all of that to say: Why didn’t I get a phone call for using a naked wax figure in your video, Kanye?” Rose said to the camera, referring to West’s controversial “Famous” music video, which features a bevy of famous faces naked in bed with the musician. “I mean, Taylor gets a call but I don’t get a call. … Please stay the f–k out of the news so I don’t need to talk about your ass anymore.”
Wiser words have NEVER been spoken. Make sure that applies to the WHOLE family, Yeezus.
