Cyndi Lauper Trashes Miley Cyrus Performance as "Sad," Supportive of "Date Rape"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Cyndi Lauper has come out with the harshest rebuke yet of Miley Cyrus.

Asked by Australian radio station Gold 104.3 for her thoughts on Miley's VMA performance, the singer at first labeled it as a "sad" example of a "girl gone wild."

Robin Thicke and Miley Twerk

But the Tony nominee then zeroed on the tracks to which Cyrus Twerked alongside Robin Thicke and picked apart the lyrics of "Blurred Lines."

"She's in a song that literally says that the blurred lines allowed you to - when a woman says no, she means yes - and that's frightful because that's date rape," said Lauper, adding: "I just felt like that was so beneath her and raunchy, really raunchy. It wasn't even art."

Lauper is one of many who have expressed shock and horror at Miley's antics, though the artist herself remains undeterred:

She bragged soon afterward about how many Tweets per minute her routine brought in.

Here is a look at others that are sort of in Miley's corner:

Billy Ray Cyrus: "She's still my little girl and I'm still her dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change."

Justin Timberlake: "It’s the VMAs. What did you guys expect?. I like Miley. I like her a lot. I think, you know, she’s young. She’s letting everyone know that she’s growing up. I just think it’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the GRAMMYs. Let her do her thing. You know?”

Adam Lambert: "Listen if it wasn't ur cup of tea - all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey - she's doin something right. We all talking."

You really want this slutty whore as a role model for our children?

While I don't care for or respect Adam Lamert's opinion, I'm really let down that Justin Timberlake is defending her actions. She's constantly doing this stuff wherever she goes, not just at the VMA's. The real way to let people know that you're "growing up" is to act mature and responsible, to know what's really important in life, not to act like a desperate pathetic ho. She's not a child. She's an adult. This stuff isn't cool, nor sexy. I'm so disappointed in you for saying that Justin... I really wouldn't think you'd defend that (not that you'll see this, but I have to say it to you anyway). My opinion of you has changed now for the worse unfortunately. I really liked you but that's a bonehead thing to defend and say.

Are you homophobic or something? Why else would you not "respect" Adam Lambert's opinion...

That's like saying that I'm racist because I don't respect Kanye West's opinion. It couldn't be because he's an ignorant fuck, no, it has to be because he's black. You see my point?

Miley better stop acting like a slutty black girl or she'll have no fans left.

If we don't like it turn it off? Well if you don't like our comments, turn this site off. We have the right to say our opinion just the same as you do. And how did we have any idea what that pathetic ho was going to do before the show started? Turn off the entire VMA's just because of her? No. We all have the rights to our opinions so don't tell us to just not watch - it's pretty hypocritical to tell people to just not watch while complaining about our comments (because if you took your own advice you'd just not read them). For the record, I won't be watching her anymore in the future now that I know just how pathetic and nasty she is. And you're dreaming if you think Cindy Lauper did the raunchy stuff this hardcore. Miley is in a class all by herself, she's pretty close to a desperate porn star tho now.

People said the same comments to Cindy's antique performances and behavior back in the 80. what did she tell herself? She may have changed, too bad time cannot erase her image. And her analogy to 'date rape' of what Miley did on the stage is indeed comments gone too far.

Miley Cyrus sure has turned into an ugly whore. Why would anyone waste one cent on her crappy album?

I like Cyndi Lauper and realise she was being asked her opinion, but there is only ever one cause of date rape --- rapists. Sure, Miley's act was odd and inappropriate, but to associate it with rape??!

Vulgar and revolting. Shows what depths of crassness Hollywood-VMA-MTV music mass media production profit crew will plumb for profit. Kill Hollywood- PirateMyFilm,.

I agree with Justin Timberlake...let Miley do her thing. And Cyndi Lauper needs to mind her own goddamn business. Cyndi, always remember this: During your season on The Celebrity Apprentice, most of the other female celebrities in the CA cast banded together to get you booted (aka fired) because of your abrasive, pushy and obnoxious behavior. Cyndi, you need to bear that in mind the next time you decide to stick your nose in a situation where it DOESN'T belong. Stupid woman.

Nobody gives a shit about "celebrity Apprentice" the only stars worth worldwide game on it at all that season was in fact CYNDI LAUPER and Brett Michaels. Everyone else on there were a bunch of NOBODYs. Hally Robinson Pete? Summer the Olympic swimmer? No one knows who these people are. People all over the world know who Cyndi Lauper is. She has sold over 50 MILLION albums and has Grammies, Emmys, MTV Awards and just recently in 2013 Cyndi won a TONY award for best score! She is more than relevant to comment on Miley's performance because she is a pop legend everyone from Katy perry to Madonna has admitted to loving and copying her. She was the first woman in history to win "best female video" on the MTV awards for girls just wanna have fun...so Miley should be kissing her royal ass and your the only one here that sounds stupid. Do your homework.

Lisa...I'm really not much of a Miley Cyrus fan. But, earlier today, a friend of mine DARED ME to watch Miley's VMA performance online. Anyway, I took the dare, watched it online and I gotta say...I found it to be pretty entertaining. And, as for your opinion and all...to each their own. Take care, Lisa.
