Miley Cyrus Shocks In Nude Bikini For Horrifying MTV VMAs Performance

26 August 2013

Miley Cyrus might not have won at the MTV VMAs but she certainly stole the spotlight thanks to her awful performance of new single We Can't Stop. The former child star might have had a change of direction with her edgier look, but it seems the rest of the music industry hasn't quite caught up with her as the likes of Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Rihanna looked on in horror as she screached through her comeback single, with lots of crotch grabbing, in just a nude bikini.

The singer, 20, who hit number one with the track appeared to struggle to perform it live, with her weak vocals barely audible and instead looked more concerned with bouncing around the stage, twerking and grabbing herself.

After performing half of her own track in a silver bodysuit she stripped off to reveal a nude bikini and was joined onstage by Robin Thicke who performed his monster summer hit Blurred Lines. Things got even worse at this point as Cyrus barely hit a note in her portion of the song and instead grinded on an uncomfortable looking Thicke, kissed his neck and then twerked against him.

The car-crash performance went down like a bomb with her fellow stars in the audience as well as on Twitter. Taylor Swift could be seen laughing all the way through and as we know those girls are far from BFFs we can't imagine it was with delight.

Will Smith and his children Willow and Jayden had looks of confusion and horror on their faces that seemed to sum up how most people were feeling as they watched the craziness unfold.

Elsewhere Twitter gave Miley a thumbs down, despite her best efforts to transform from Disney Princess to gangster hipster.

"What the hell Miley Cyrus literally lost her marbles at the VMAs ... Disgraceful," one user wrote.

While another clearly unimpressed fan said: "If I was one of 2 Chainz dancers at the VMAs I would've made sure to do one of those high-kicks straight to Miley Cyrus' head."

"Miley Cyrus it is passed funny now, you at the VMAs was just embarrassing, awkward and cringey," was another opinion offered.And your tongue needs to stay in your mouth!"

Some just gave the star some advice: "I'm embarrassed for her, get some class Miley."
