Miley Cyrus’ twerking, half-naked performance was the talk of social media the day after the show, and many were concerned with what she may have been thinking. Her singing didn’t get many positive reviews either, and she may have been the one Clarkson was talking about.
Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words…. #pitchystrippers

Clarkson has made her living off her voice, and seems to take offense when other women don’t live up to her potential.
However, the American Idol singer wasn’t the only one to tweet about Cyrus’ performance. Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek also took a shot at the singer, or rather an accessory she used during the show.
Cyrus also helped Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon made an important life decision for his children.
Remind me to never let my kids into showbiz… Thanks
“I was Hannah Montana‘s mother. I do not approve,” Shields said. “I just want to know who’s advising her, and why it’s necessary. I mean, the whole finger thing, and the hand. Robin [Thicke] probably at that point was going, ‘I don’t think this is a good idea. Our children can’t watch that. I feel like it’s a bit desperate.”
Meanwhile, Cyrus didn’t seem too concerned with all the talk. She took to Twitter Monday sharing the good reviews she received Sunday night.
