Brooke Shields Labels Miley Cyrus VMA Performance "Desperate, Uncomfortable"

by at . Comments

Count Brooke Shields among those who were shocked and appalled by Miley Cyrus' VMA performance last night.

The actress, who actually starred on Hannah Montana as the title character's mother, lamented the singer's bumping and grinding and nearly naked Twerking while co-hosting Today this morning.

"I just sort of want to know who's advising her, and why it's necessary," Shields of Miley. "I mean, the whole finger thing, and the hand... I feel like it's a bit desperate. Are you trying to be Gaga? But Gaga is ... she's got a genius behind all of it, that's not just display."

Many would agree: There's a method behind Gaga's madness, a performance art to everything she does.

It's not crude edginess for the sake of crude edginess.

Kelly Clarkson Tweeted an obvious reference to Cyrus after seeing the routine, referring to "pitchy strippers" at the event, while the PTC has come down hard on MTV in general for such a lewd ceremony.

"It's not necessary. It's uncomfortable," Shields added of Miley's performance. "And the tongue out, I think it's just a little desperate ... trying so, so hard."

In the end, though, Brooke did give Cyrus a back-handed compliment:

"[Miley] can sing beautifully. And I feel like if she let's that lead, rather than her bottom lead... [But] she went for it. You've got to give her credit. We're all talking about her."

That is very, very true. What did YOU think of Miley's performance?

This was porn. No doubt about that. I strongly feel if that had of been Miley sitting with her parents (at ages 3-18) at any type of Award dinner, Oscars, etc., they would have felt very disrespected and embarrassed for their own children. They may not admit, because she's Miley Cyress? But, they would not be happy with a performance such as this! I had to turn the channel.,I would not and could not allow my grandchildren, or my own children or any child for that matter. Another thing, she couldn't have any confidence or self-esteem to even allow herself to get up there and perform like that. Especially involve herself to act like that w children involved! She needs to grow up and realize she made a fool out of herself let alone anyone officiated w this! Personally? I was thoroughly disgusted with the performance. Embarrassing may I add. It's know wonder our children are growing up too fast and with no regard for other people. Nonetheless, a conscious, empathy, lack of respect, etc. from the hundreds of people I converted over this? We're pretty much in the same page!


this is what people conclude nowaday's.


Pure trash.


She's a disgrace. All that success and money being the girl next door and now her ambition is to look like a porn star. The reality is- this is the way society sees young white women. They jeopardize their future and for what? She has backed herself in a corner and she can never go back. I know, Billy Ray knows it, her long time guidance artists like Dolly Parton knows it. She would have already been used & abused but people at this time are in disbelief as to what they are witnessing.
