It’s been two years since Miley Cyrus twerked half-naked on Robin Thicke at the VMAs, and people are STILL talking about it. Ahead of her hosting duties at this year’s show, the singer herself opens up about the performance, and totally calls Robin out for his reaction to the duet.
Miley Cyrus, 22, was ALL up on Robin Thicke, 38, when they hit the stage together at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but did you know the pair barely even know each other?! The “Wrecking Ball” singer dishes on the infamous performance in a new interview, and reveals that Robin knew EXACTLY how shocking she would be on stage…even though he claimed otherwise.
The “Blurred Lines” singer alleged in a 2013 interview that he had “no idea” how Miley was planning to dress when they performed. (In case you forgot, she wore nothing but a nude, spandex bikini and a foam finger while twerking on Robin during the show). But now that the 22-year-old is set to host the 2015 VMAs, she’s setting the record straight.
“It was funny because I got so much of the heat for it, but that’s jus being a woman,” she tells The New York Times. “He acted like he didn’t know that was going to happen. You were in rehearsals! You knew exactly what was going to happen. And he was actually the one that approved my outfit, so I thought that was very funny. He wanted me as naked as possible, because that’s how his video was.”
Miley insists that the 2015 show won’t be about her history with the VMAs (“I wouldn’t let them do it,” she admits), but we can still expect something crazy! “Seth Rogen and his team helped us write a lot,” she explains. “Jen Stark is doing the introduction for me, so I’m coming out of one of her pieces. What I’m trying to do is create my Instagram — which people love to think is so freaky — in real life. It’s letting people into my world.”
And, as HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported, we can expect another performance from the former Disney star. “She will have 30 drag queens,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Baloons and streamers will also drop.” No word yet on what she’ll perform, but she’s expected to close out the show…and it’s sure to be epic!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Miley calling Robin out? Are you excited for Sunday’s show?
