Miley Cyrus - Miley Cyrus Dancer: 'I Felt Degraded In Teddy Bear Costume'

One of the little people Miley Cyrus hired for her provocative MTV Video Music Awards performance in August (13) has blasted the singer for turning her into a figure of fun.

Hollis Jane was among the dancers who dressed up in bear costumes for the pop star's We Can't Stop set, and she has now taken to her blog to lash out at her one-time boss.

She writes, "I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do.

"I realize not everyone shares my opinion and I might just be young and naive, but I feel like the acceptance of this kind of treatment has got to stop... I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand.

"After our first dress rehearsal in the costumes with the crew, publicists, performers etc. watching us, I walked out of the Barclay Center shaking and crying. I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons. I was being looked at as a prop... as something less than human."

Cyrus faced a barrage of criticism after her Vmas performance after stripping to her flesh-coloured latex underwear for a suggestive performance of Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke.
