Miley Cyrus' VMA performance Sunday night was troubling and/or offensive - Dr. Laura slammed her as a tasteless, disgusting whore - by many people.
Her manager is not one of those people.
Larry Rudolph said of Miley Cyrus Twerking and writhing all over the stage, "It could not have gone better. The fans got it. The rest eventually will."
Wait ... Miley still has fans after that?
Rudolph, who is also Britney Spears' manager, said that Cyrus' family and friends, including mom Tish "were all cheering from the side of the stage."
He refutes reports that her team is "concerned" (see above) and echoed Miley's refrain that it got the fans buzzing - A LOT - exactly as she'd hoped.
As for who came up with that memorable - for better or worse - performance that still has fans buzzing five days later? All Miles, her manager says:
"Most it came from Miley's brain. But she collaborated with [music video director] Diane Martel, who helped her conceive it and bring in the spirit of the VMAs."
"And Todd James designed all of those amazing bears."
Amazing is one way of putting it.
