Miley Cyrus Responds to VMA Controversy with Racy Pics, Self-Congratulatory Tweet

by at .  Updated at . Comments

She can't be tamed. Nor can she be made to apologize.

In light of her controversial appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night - which included Twerking, graphic foam finger waving and simulated stuffed bear humping - Miley Cyrus isn't focusing on the negative responses across the Internet.

She's simply focusing on the fact that there were responses.

  • Miley Cyrus Middle Finger Pose
  • This is Miley Cyrus

"Smilers! My VMA performance had 306,000 tweets per minute," Cyrus wrote yesterday, including with the message a couple new, racy images (above).

"That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact."

It's true.

As Brooke Shields said - along with referring to Cyrus as desperate - the entire entertainment world is talking about Miley, so if her goal was mere attention... she accomplished it.

But will the backlash negatively affect the aritst's career in the long run? Did she go too far in her attempt to simply generate headlines?

What did YOU think of Miley's VMA performance?

Miley Cyrus is a dirty little pig and should be damned ashamed of herself. her poor parents. Disgusting slutty behaviour. I wonder how embarrassed her boyfriend is?

Shania, Robin said the same thing. He didn't rehearse all that bump n grind. Miley was a complete distraction from the song

I'm an old person. You can put me in the camp that didn't really care about the 'twerking' or the fact that OMIGOD! Robin Thicke is MARRIED! It was a stage show. Probably in bad taste, but lord! Get a life folks. THIS however, is just stoking the fire. She should have let the performance stand and shut up. THIS just adds fuel to the fire that she's the next Lindsay Lohan.

God leave Lindsey out of it. God let that girl get her life straight w/o you guys dumping on her again . Miley is not like Lindsey is trying to get on track. She's smart and a talented artist Miley followed her dad so they said they would help career by changing her voice but what she did is her real talent it's stripper dude.

As far as I know, Miley doesn't spend her time passing judgement and making hateful remarks about other people, which makes her a much better person and role model than all the Jesus freaks and other moralists condemning her in such a nasty and insulting way, IMO.

I am a Jesus freak, and even though I think it may have been a bit much,one: that's what the song is about. doing what she wants.two:what she does,does not affect me or anyone.three:people just like to talk and gossip and others are uptight.if they didn't like it they should have just simply changed the channel. Please don't think all Jesus freaks are like that because there are many who are not.

OK, apologies Kitty and Brandy - it was wrong of me to generalize about Christians that way. Reading all that hatefulness got me fired up.

I am one of those Jesus people.. and I don't see what the big deal is. was it the most tasteful act.. no, by far. However its just a performace. I totally believe this performace was to piss her parents off, especially her dad. I don't think all the name call is necessary.. because she don't care. Plus with so much anti bullying going on.. why is it now acceptable to bully and call someone a whore or slut.. or dirty and disgusting.. If you don't like whats on TV.. turn the tv off.. its that easy.

You can't help someone who won't acknowledge that they have a problem. Sheesh, Miley is her own worst enemy! She looks like she's heading they same direction that Lindsey Lohan's at and that can't be good!

Thats right, FUCKa Ua!!!You havent hurt anyone but assholes that dont have a life anyway!

She is trying to embarrass her father Billy Ray but I think it will backfire on her. No good comes to those who do evil.

I think she was going for sexy but it seldom works in someone so young--think Jlo who is a master at these moves. Some have it naturally. Artists are beginning to rally around hew as they should. Which one of them didn't have their own growing pains.
