Here we go again NFTF thought as the news began to churn and swirl regarding 20-year-old Miley Cyrus’ latest foray into the world of the avant garde. This time the fury is over her rather clever and provocative performances on the MTV VMAs last night.
So what was the big deal! Strutting her fine self around in a teddy with a tongue tied teddy on the front singing “We Can’t Stop” with teddy bears all around her, Cyrus has managed to garner opinions from most media outlets expressing outrage.
Hold it folks….this is rock n’ roll isn’t it? Since when has REAL rock n’ roll become family bonding time all wrapped up in homogenized , socially acceptable ribbon? I don’t think so. Rock n’ roll is an adult genre pure and simple. That socially acceptable homogenized pablum is pop.
When that teddy bear stuff was over, Cyrus ripped off the teddy to reveal a nude colored bikini and on strolled Robin Thicke wearing his Beetlejuice suit ready to rock Cyrus’ world with his “Blurred Lines.” Thicke’s song is of a sexual nature and any attempt to feign otherwise is just wrongheaded and ignorant. To be honest, NFTF thinks that Cyrus might have rocked Thicke’s world just a bit…after all he is supposed to be a Christian.
NFTF was a bit put off by Cyrus’ tongue being out all of the time, it wasn’t sexy and looked odd. That is the extent of our complaint.
This whole episode took NFTF back to the time when Music Maven first started dancing. It was at a Teen Fair at the Palladium in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd and a band she knew was set to perform for the battle of the bands. For whatever the reason the Music Maven was asked to dance with them and a table was set out for her to jump up on and dance. A few minutes into it the crowd was growing and the fair police arrived saying that people had complained that her private parts were being exposed. Being that she was clad in jeans and a top and nothing was showing except good dancing skills, the show was allowed to move on.
This incident paved the way for future performances all over town and more action than could ever have been dreamed of. Hats off to Cyrus for having the vision to know that this is what would happen if she did what she planned to do.
It’s only rock n’ roll folks…get over it and go end world hunger or something.
