Miley Cyrus’ New VMAs Promo Will Probably Upset PTC Even Moreby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
Miley Cyrus posted some more promo for her upcoming gig as host for the MTV Video Music Awards, this time in the form of a video that will probably incite some more disapproving sighs from the Parents Television Council.
Miley posted the video in question, which you can check out above, to Instagram earlier today (July 28). In it, Miley channels Marina and the Diamonds, probably unknowingly, by wearing a headband topped off with a giant, glittering cherry. She then rolls up her sleeve and pretends to play Pop Goes the Weasel, but with her hands. Her middle finger is the weasel here, which is so funny because then she just winds up flipping off the camera. Miley is so edgy! She’s just what MTV needs to freshen up its programming!
Circling back around to that whole Parents Television Council debacle, the organization made it abundantly clear that they do not approve of MTV’s decision to cast Miley as this year’s VMAs host. Their president Tim Winter just expects better from Miley than all this provocation, you know?
He said, “I think it’s unfortunate she built her entire career on the backs of parents and now she’s basically giving them the middle finger. I think Miley Cyrus is capable of doing it if she so chose…she’s smart. She’s talented. She knows how to turn it up, turn it down.”
Be sure to tune in to the MTV Video Music Awards when they air on August 30 at 9PM EST.
