Paul McCartney Defends Miley Cyrus, Can Twerk with the Best of Them!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Wake Paul McCartney up when the uproar over Miley Cyrus is finished.

In London this week to perform a gig sponsored by BBC Radio, the legendary singer was asked about the 20-year old Twerking sensation and essentially replied with a yawn.

He doesn't see what the big deal is.

"I don't understand why everyone's saying, 'Ooh she shouldn't do that!' It is nothing we haven't seen before," McCartney said of Miley. "I mean, she's a young girl and these days, in that kind of field that she's in, there's a lot of noise."

And Cyrus has clearly risen far above the noise with her controversial antics.

Her new album, "Bangerz" is number-one on the Billboard chart and on iTunes.

"You've got to do something to get above the chatter and that's what you'll see a lot of the guys, a lot of the girls, doing," the veteran artist added. "I don't think it was bad at all. She looked good."

In a sort of similar vein, feminist Gloria Steinem has also stood up for Miley.

She told critics to hate the game, not the player, and blamed society for essentially forcing a young singer to sexualize herself if she wants to garner attention.

In past interviews, McCartney referred to Miley's recent run of performances as "only mildly shocking" and said he was totally down with his 10-year old daughter watching her Twerk.

In fact, "I can twerk with the best of them," the former Beatles vocalist said.

Now THAT is something we'd pay to see.

I'm getting tired of these celebs trying to defend her with the statement "shes acting like this becasue its what society wants". FAIL! What these celebs don't understand is that you have a CHOICE and be prepared to get rudely criticized by that choice. There tons of artist around the same age as Miley doing extremely well without having to get naked/acting inappropriately.

This of course is coming from a guy who has to pay his ex 50 million in a settlement at the age of 65 and only after the divorce he finds out that she was once a prostitute and she even claims she was nominated for a Noble Peace Prize, so it is obvious at this point that his judge of character even at the age of 71 doesn't mean dick.
