Miley Cyrus Did This …
We quit watching MTV when the network quit airing music videos (and starting airing teen reality television programs), but for reasons defying logic MTV still hosts a video music awards show each year.
Again … even though the network doesn’t show music videos.
The latest iteration of this show occurred last night, and was marked (marred?) by a six-and-a-half minute performance from Miley Cyrus – the former Hannah Montana of Disney fame.
Take a look …
Um … yeah. That bit at the 3:50 mark is called “twerking,” people.
For the uninitiated, twerking is defined by Urban Dictionary as “the rhythmic gyrating of the lower fleshy extremities in a lascivious manner with the intent to elicit sexual arousal.”
Oh … and you’ll never be able to look at a foam finger the same way again.
Lots of people disapproved of Cyrus’ gyrations (and her foam “fingering”), but the recipient of her twerking – singer Robin Thicke – loved it.
“That was dope,” he tweeted after the show.
Oh well, at least for a few hours MTV was playing music again …
