Miley Cyrus Manager Praises VMA Performance: It Went Perfectly!

by at . Comments

Controversy? What controversy?!?

With negative reaction to Miley Cyrus' VMA routine continuing to pour in, the singer's manager tells Us Weekly that he and Miley's team are thrilled with how the performance went.

"We were all cheering from the side of the stage," Larry Rudolph tells the magazine of Cyrus's family and friends, including mother Tish. "It could not have gone better. The fans got it. The rest eventually will."

That hasn't been the case yet, of course.

Criticism of Miley has practically been universal, with Cyndi Lauper rebuking the artist the strongest by saying her collaborating with Robin Thicke was akin to the support of date rape.

Justin Timberlake, however, has defended Cyrus by saying she's "young" (which, ironically, was the image she was desperately trying to shake on stage) and by saying folks should relax... it's not like she Twerked at the Grammys!

Billy Ray Cyrus is also on the side of his daughter, Tweeting oddly yesterday that he would totally would have gyrated around with a fake penis back in the day.

"If twerkin woulda been invented," Billy Ray wrote. "And I had a foam finger … I woulda done the same thang you did."

How incredibly irresponsible to today's youth. Sadly, she has the "fame" to influence young minds. She can hide behind the idea that she was only acting about a song...blah, blah, blah. But young fans (age 11-14) can't NOT be sadly warped by idiots such as herself.

You are spot on, "Jazz." She look very amateur and awkward. In the beginning when she first came out, she looked like she had to really put a lot of thought into sticking her tongue out. She sounded horrid also. She repeated the same clumsy dance moves over and over and it was nothing special at all. She is a very talented girl, no doubt, but this did nothing to showcase that. She needs to take a step back and realize how embarrassing this was, then move on. Do something with her talent rather than going for shock value. She honestly doesn't even need the shocking stunts like others do. (Gaga, etc). She has raw talent, and if she would stop doing stupid stuff, her talent could carry her.

I get she wants to make the transition from teen pop star to adult pop gansta artist. If her intent was to just get people talking ... she succeeded
If her intent was to look like an adult pop/gansta artist ...she failed I personally was not shocked. I was disappointed that her performance was so amateurish. She looked like a drunk 15 year old spastically dancing about. There was nothing sexy, sensual or artistic about her performance. You say the kids get it. Please enlighten the rest of us then, because what I got was this:
A young woman who is in an awkward stage of her life where she really doesn't quite get how to be sensual or sexy trying to leave her teen years behind and trying to get "with it" by taking advantage of the gangsta/hip hop craze. Maybe the teen kids get it because that is how they act at a slumber party or something lol. Miley needs to get better choreographers, advisors etc. Maybe Madonna can give her some tips on how to be shocking but at the same time maintain some artistic integrity and actually come off looking sensual and sexy. Poor Miley doesn't have a sensual/sexy bone in her body yet. Perhaps she is not really ready to go down that road just yet. I think she is still mentally and emotionally a teen. She still looked like Hanna Montana just trying to be something she is not. I have no problem with twerking (if it is executed well).

Brilliant comment. She is definitely way over her head in false success. She's taking the cheap route. Prostituting her talent every time we see her as of late. Hope the pendulum swings and she releases her God given talent instead.

What else can the fool say. She is his ticket.
