Miley Cyrus Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction Hosting 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, Parents Television Council Outraged
Miley Cyrus did not make it through her stint hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night without a nip-slip.
Miley Cyrus Wardrobe Malfunction: Nip-Slip Seen ‘Round The World
Cyrus, who changed her outfit several times throughout the live VMA broadcast, was in between ensembles when the camera went backstage so she could segue into a commercial break. Apparently unaware that the camera was live, Cyrus ended up exposing her left breast to the audience before the broadcast could switch cameras.
NSFW Cyrus Nip-Slip:
“Oh, what’s happening?” Cyrus was heard asking. “Oh sorry, my tit’s out?” Somehow, despite wearing a series of provocative outfits during the VMA show, the backstage nip-slip was Cyrus’s one and only.
Cyrus’s wardrobe malfunction and the risqué nature of the VMAs in general – which also included ample references to marijuana use – predictably outraged the Parents Television Council.
“MTV had an opportunity to use its powerful VMA platform to stir a young audience to aspire to something positive and uplifting. Instead they chose to perpetuate blatant sexualization – much of it self-inflicted by the artists – and to celebrate the use of illegal drugs,” PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement. “MTV rated the content of the program as appropriate for a child as young as 14, though most parents of teens that age would find such a content rating preposterous. In the end, the network succeeded in what it wanted to do: stir up controversy without regard to its impact on an entertainment environment that is increasingly toxic for children.”
“MTV and Cyrus could both be forces for something positive,” Winter continued. “But tonight’s VMA partners relied on exposing millions of children to graphic, inappropriate and far-too-frequently offensive content.”
Cyrus hasn’t weighed in on any of the controversy surrounding her hosting duties and is celebrating the free streaming release of her album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.
