Because literally EVERYONE is talking about Miley Cyrus’ nasty VMA performance, Cyndi Lauper has jumped on the bandwagon too. Australian radio hosts Brig & Lehmo called in and asked Cyndi what she thought about Miley’s performance. Cyndi says even though she was wild and crazy in her heydey she never ho’d it out like Miley did….
“Now that was Girl Gone Wild. So sad, so sad. That was like Girls Gone Wild. She’s in a song that literally says that the blurred lines allowed you to—when a woman says no, that she means yes—and that is frightful because that’s date rape. It’s like, that’s okay, it’s cool. And there she is, a young twentysomething trying to prove she can hang with the big boys and girls, you know, basically simulating a Girl Gone Wild video onstage. And I just felt like it was so beneath her and really raunchy, really raunchy. It wasn’t even art. It was raunch. It’s so sad. I felt really sad for her. I know Gaga mooned everybody and I was laughing to my son, ‘This is like the naked video awards,’ but at least it was in art. It was like art. The other one was like raunch.”
So Miley was promoting date rape when she grinded up against Robin Thicke? Miley’s performance did make me want to gorge my eyeballs out with spoons, but date rape is a bit much. I think Robin probably has a case for rape, though, if you ask me.
