Hanna Montana Was Never Like That!
As numerous websites have indicated in their headlines, Myley Cyrus stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. Indeed, there was far more talk online -- on blogs, on Twitter and on Facebook -- about Cyrus's sexy performance with giant teddy bears than about any of the awards themselves. Just watched that Miley Cyrus/teddy bear performance and I think I'm now legally required to put myself on some kind of registry, tweeted Time magazine TV columnist James Poniewozik. on NBC's Today show, guest Brooke Shields remarked, I was Hannah Montana's mother. I don't approve. The conservative Parents Television Council, which has spearheaded the campaign against television indecency, issued a statement today (Monday) saying, MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials -- while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable. Cyrus's performance even managed to eclipse a reunion of N'Sync with Justin Timberlake at the VMAs. (Timberlake won the top Video of the Year prize.)
