I don't know which part about Miley Cyrus' VMA performance I liked least:
- how raunchy it was and the message it sends to both young males and females about what is expected and is acceptable for a young woman to do in public, or
- that that was my reaction to it.
It makes me sound like our parent's generation used to sound talking about anyone from Elvis Presley to Madonna. And things like that don't get better in future performances, they only get worse, especially given the impact on TV ratings and the publicity they generate for the performer. So, we have that to look forward to.
On the other hand, there was a story on Huffington Post yesterday showing clips from Miley's new video coming out soon, featuring her naked on a wrecking ball (yes, you read that right) and well, yeah, I clicked on it and watched (and no, I'm not including a link here).
But she kept her tongue in her mouth so it was fine.
