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."
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."
