Miley Cyrus Tweets Racy Photos After MTV VMAs Performance, Promotes New Album 'Bangerz'
Miley Cyrus reacted to the backlash from her twerk-filled 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance by taking to Twitter to post pictures of herself in sexually suggestive poses.
The teasing selfies posted to Twitter, which feature Cyrus in various states of undress, show that the entertainer is happy to move forward in promoting her new album Bangerz and her forthcoming single “23.” Though scarce, the clothing that she is wearing serves as billboards for the new music and the new image she’s been cultivating.
As far as Cyrus, 20, is concerned, her time up on the VMA stage – performing her single “We Can’t Stop” and doing a duet with Robin Thicke on his “Blurred Lines” track – was a definitive success. And, why shouldn’t she? Even Rolling Stone, the leader in music news, endorsed the show she put on.
“Miley was the one star in the room who truly understood what the MTV Video Music Awards are all about — waggling your tongue, grabbing your crotch, rocking a foam finger, going to third with the Care Bears, twerking and shrieking and acting out America's goriest pop-psycho nightmares,” wrote Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield. “She showed up Robin Thicke as one uptight douche, though he helped by dressing as the world's edgiest Foot Locker manager. Miley stole the night, which is why the nation is still in recovery today. Thanks, Miley.”
Cyrus tweeted a couple of lines from Sheffield’s article, no doubt appreciating having the regarded publication in her corner. The former Disney star also appreciated having her risqué performance set fire to the Twitterverse, sharing with her followers her impressive stats.
Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact.
