Robin Thicke's Mom Slams Miley Cyrus For Gyrating On Her Son At The VMAs

Singer and actress, Gloria Loring, has slammed 20-year-old former Disney star gone wild, Miley Cyrus, for gyrating on her son, Robin Thicke, 36, at last night's Video Music Awards. Cyrus is being heavily criticized today by many for rubbing against Thicke and touching his crotch on stage.

Loring stated, "I don't understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I think she's misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial. "I didn't get what her point was. It was so over the top as to almost be a parody of itself."

I missed the VMAs, but saw a clip of the aforementioned performance on Twitter today and it went too far. As usual, the VMAs are pushing the boundaries for television ratings, rather than focusing on talent, music and creative videos. It was inappropriate turning the awards ceremony into a strip show, especially so early in the night with kids watching, but even worse that it was done with a woman just out of her teens and a married man. It was disrespectful to his wife.


Will Smith and family were stunned. Little Jaden Smith (left) looked like his eyes had been violated (LOL)

Miley has a nice voice and entertaining comedic acting skills. She didn't need to do this (no one does for that matter). This is not the kind of attention an artist should want. It's the type untalented ones like Madonna crave and hound, as there exists no ability behind their name to attract real applause for their works. Cyrus can do better.

Parents groups and ironically a number of celebrities have panned the performance. Once again, another former Disney star is going in the wrong direction and it is sad. The government needs to investigate what they are doing to these kids at Disney, why they fly off the rails more than most when they hit adulthood.

In other news, Robin Thicke was seen grabbing the behind of a woman at the VMAs when he thought the camera wasn't watching. However a mirror picked up the whole thing and he has some explaining to do, you know, especially considering he's married and all...


Parents Television Council isn't happy with Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance

Aug 26, 2013 at 1:53PM - One group of people definitely not happily twerking alongside Miley Cyrus? The Parents Television Council, who have released a statement condemning her VMA performance. "MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials — while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable," said PTC Director of Public Policy Dan Isett in a release.

"This much is absolutely clear: MTV marketed adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children. MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate ‘twerking’ in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds? How is it appropriate for children to watch Lady Gaga strip down to a bikini in the opening act? How is it appropriate for 14-year-olds to see a condom commercial and a promo for an R-rated movie during the first commercial break?"

"This content would likely not be given a forum if it were on a broadcast network," the statement continued. "Yet MTV continues to push limits because it’s a cable network. But that does not mean MTV’s decisions have no consequences, especially for the millions of children who were targeted by MTV. We urge Congress to pass the Television Consumer Freedom Act which will give parents and consumers a real solution for future MTV VMA programs – the ability to choose and pay for cable networks that they want vs. having to pay for networks they don’t want. After MTV’s display last night, it’s time to give control back to consumers."
