Miley Cyrus’ raunchy performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs didn’t win her any friends in the celebrity world.
Rough week for Miley Cyrus. First, news that her engagement to actor Liam Hemsworth is kaput, and now she is getting slammed by multiple celebs for wasting her talent with her raunchy yet lackluster performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs.
P!nk, who is no stranger to skimpy costumes herself, slammed Cyrus for phoning it in with shock value and “cheating” her fans.
“Am I into it?” P!nk told E! Online, “No, I think it’s tacky.”
“She’s really freaking talented, she’s beautiful, she can sing her a** off and to go up there and do that? She’s cheating herself and she’s cheating the rest of us.”
“People can like it if they want. I’m not going to buy it. She can do better. I’ve seen her do better,” P!nk said.
Cher joined in with similar criticism, telling E!, “I don’t give a s*** if she comes out naked. Just be better, do better.”
“Maybe she’s thrilled and delighted — everyone’s talking about it, and so, that’s almost as good as it being great, you know,” Cher mused. “Especially kind of in this day and age. It doesn’t make any difference if you’re good. It just makes a difference if people are talking about it.”
But it was Elton John who really drove the stake through the heart of Cyrus’ stage shenanigans. “I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen,” he told The Australian. “And she’s so young! But she’s got two records in the Top 20, so who is going to stop her?”
One person who can’t stop, won’t stop the singer now is former fiancé Hemsworth, who has washed his hands of Cyrus and has already been spotted smooching another woman, Mexican actress Eiza González.
Oh, Miley. At least Courtney Love is a fan.
