Miley Says Her Twerking “Made History,” Harry Styles Says It’s “Inappropriate”

miley-harryIn her first interview since the controversial VMA performance that left her dangling off the front side of Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus says her provocative behavior has “made history,” and you’re really “over thinking it.”

The 20-year-old pop queen wore a blouse that covered her shoulders in the interview with MTV, where she added that her performance was no more shocking than the legendary Britney/Madonna kiss in 2003. “What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it.” Uh… obviously!

Miley also says she doesn’t “pay attention to the negative,” but the opinion of one of her fellow pop stars is pretty hard to ignore. In an interview with Moviefone this week, One Direction frontman Harry Styles called Miley’s twerking “inappropriate.”

“Especially for the age groups it’s aimed at,” he said. “I think it’s, you know, promoting promiscuity.”

What do you think?

      Well look at the pot calling the kettle black. Harry Styles is irrelevant. He regularly does inappropriate things on his own. Is have Zain bite into a candy thong not equivalent? I’m not defined Miley. I think she’s gone overboard in her attempt to distance herself from Disney but he’s a hypocrite.

      That harry guy is just upset miley does a better job at twerking than him.
      His twerking is laughable. Not in a good way.

      Didn’t one of these idiots recently flash their ass at a news conference?

      Um, the Hindenburg blowing up in a ball of flames made history too. Miley hurt her brand with that bad performance. In the end it was just bad and desperate. There is such a thing as bad press. She’s making bad choices at the moment, but her time in the spotlight is not up yet. Although she may be hastening the end of her relevance.

      If I were Harry, however, I would have steered clear of the issue, but he is not wrong.

      I think Miley and I have vastly different definitions of what it means to make history. These people and their work/twerk are beyond trivial.

      In 1984, when Madonna performed at the VMAs, she looked hot and lots of men wanted to f*ck her. In 2001, when Britney performed almost naked with a snake, she looked hot and lots of men wanted to f*ck her. No man wanted to f*ck Miley Cyrus’ flabby, flapping ass after that performance. That’s the difference.

      She looked stupid. And Thicke looked like a sex craved pervert.

      Whatever anyone thinks, no one can argue with $200million in the bank at 20 years old. Yep, that’s how much she’s worth.

      Also, isn’t she signed to Hollywood Records? (A Disney company) They’re guiding her to do this trash.

      Shock value and controversy works every time. It sure worked for Madonna.

      History? Yeh, 50 years from now we’ll all remember where we were when Whatshername? twerked (whatever that was) with Whozits.

      Miley can’t dance very well in general and she wasn’t really twerking because she has no booty to shake. Nevertheless, she was mildly obscene and I suppose that’s something…

      Mark my words Miley is in the family. Everytime I see her my gaydar explodes and gives me a migraine.

      These “celebrity worth” websites are a joke. Now come on, with last year’s highest earning celebrity having made under 150 million, does anyone believe she has a net worth of 200 million?

      That whole performance was a hot mess. There were alot of kids watching that and it was just gross. I felt like I was watching porn….and not good porn.

      They both need to just shut up and get naked.

      Twerking is irrelevant. Her promoting MDMA (which is what the whole thing was about) should be the focus after the two deaths at The Electric Zoo this weekend. MTV bleeped out her Molly reference. But all the kids know what she’s on.

      This whole twerking nonsense is really corny regardless of who’s doing it (including the gay versions Queerty has posted). It’s not sexy – it just comes off as corny.

      first off, her target age group isn’t children anymore. second, there is nothing wrong with promiscuity, and the fact that he thinks that, means he’s some kind of religious tryhard, or a bigot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_tecH1m_1s

      You have made the definitive statement on this whole (hot) mess, LOL!

      Miley, darls, you need to get real. You can’t sing and you can’t act.

      Hitler made history too, but no one wants to claim him. Miley’s performance was terrible — she can’t sing, she can’t dance, and she certainly does not know how to entertain. I have to agree with Polaro. Her performance was desperate. She has been doing this “Look, look, I am a big girl now” act for four years and it has gotten tired about three years ago. If she really wants to be an adult, she needs to start acting like one.

      He’s in pics and videos grabbing every dick in sight and he’s talking about what’s inappropriate. Please. Miley did nothing many others her age are doing.

      You guys clearly lack the understanding that is Hollywood, haven’t you ever heard that sex sells, that’s the only reason people are talking about it today.

      The worst thing about that performance was her hair! Oh and the tongue thing I hate it when people stick out their tongue! Unless of course it’s to lick my ball’s but I would not let Miley do that!!

      Oh yeah and I’m sorry Queerty but Miley is not a “pop queen”… pop court jester maybe.

      The tongue sticking out constantly is a red herring. The protuberance diverts attention from her eyes, the windows to the soul, and this, to me, is indicative of a liar. It could be a sign of defiance, overt sexuality, or merely a protective mechanism to deal with the pressure of the spotlight. Just as jewelry, adorning the tongue, lips, eyebrows also distracts from the eyes, and has me wondering, “inherent liar?” the tongue serves as a hindrance.
      I once worked with a nurse who made bizarre, gargoyle-like distortions of her face, every time we happened upon one another. Turning the corner and walking into the med room would set off this reaction. Coming around a corner, in the hallway, this unsettling facial distortion would instantly occur. Her facial contortion was being used to distract us from her eyes and, as it turned out, she was stealing narcotics.
