Ouch! Pink and Cher totally slammed Miley’s twerk-a-thon at the VMAs in two surprising new interviews. Believe it or not, the pop icons weren’t shocked by the ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer’s performance — they just thought Miley could have done it better!
The original queen of controversy — and revealing outfits — has spoken! Cher , 67, ruffled some feathers when she shared her thoughts about Miley Cyrus‘ raunchy MTV Video Music Awards performance on Aug. 25 during a new interview with USA TODAY, but she’s standing by her remarks. “I’m not old fashioned,” the Closer to the Truth diva says. “It just wasn’t done well.” Read on to see what else Cher and Pink had to say about Miley!
Cher & Pink On Miley Cyrus’ VMA Performance — Totally ‘Tacky’?
Cher gave her two cents on Miley’s infamous twerk-filled VMA performance in a Sept. 17 interview with USA TODAY.
Unlike pretty much everyone else on earth, the outspoken star said she wasn’t phased by the explicit content of Miley’s performance, but she did question the value of it. “She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well,” Cher says.
“She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great and one cheek was hanging out,” she adds.
Burn! Although Cher’s comments were a bit harsh, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In fact, maybe Miley could learn a thing or two from the iconic singer.
Cher seemed to have a change of heart about her feelings towards Miley’s performance, because she backed off from her statements on Sept. 18 in one of her classic twitter rants:
Re: Miley S….I Think What I Think, but Having Said That… I’m a little ashamed (which is total bullshit, how can u B a LITTLE ASHAMED) that I didn’t keep my big Opinionated mouth Shut. WTF is MY PROBLEM ! I’m 2 Old to fall prey 2 “Tell us, Oh wise 1, “What did YOU think of M.S ?” What I should have said,”I didn’t like it that much, but she’s pushing the envelope, being an ARTIST ! She’s Talented, & DIDN’T COMMIT A FELONY. But somehow my ego had 2 get ITS 2 CENTS IN! MY BIG ASS “BAD”, I DIDN’T SUPPORT A FELLOW ARTIST. TRUTHFULLY SHE WAS Fkng BRILLIANT..CAUSE…WE’RE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. Ps this is Not an apology 4 what I Thought, its a Reminder, that if I don’t practice my principles, I loose Them.
While we think Miley can handle the constructive criticism, it was nice of Cher to soften the blows and give Miley some props for being bold. This is one Miley diss with a happy ending!
Pink Slams Miley Cyrus’ VMA Performance — ‘It’s Tacky’
Pink was also not impressed with the VMA performance.
“Am I into it?” Pink tells E! Online, “No, I think it’s tacky.”
“She’s really freaking talented, she’s beautiful, she can sing her ass off and to go up there and do that? She’s cheating herself and she’s cheating the rest of us,” Pink adds. “People can like it if they want. I’m not going to buy it. She can do better. I’ve seen her do better.”
Well, we think Miley can take that as a back-handed ‘compliment.’ As far as we’re concerned, these ‘disses’ are really just challenges for the star to step up her game. Bring it, Miley!
Miley Cyrus Isn’t Bothered By Haters’ Reactions
Meanwhile, Miley seems to be ignoring the singers’ insults, choosing instead to focus on her No. 1 hit record “Wrecking Ball.” She took to Twitter on Sept. 18 to announce the latest success on her heart-wrenching ballad, saying, “#1 on Billboard. #1 on iTunes. #1 on Spotify. #1 on Streaming. #1 on Digital songs. #1 most added to pop radio. #1 on VEVO. #WreckingBall ❤”
Good for you, Miley! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you be upset about Cher and Pink’s disses if you were Miley?
