Vast sections of the underemployed world are still talking about Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s controversial performance at the VMAs last week. Both of the music artists have played down any notion that their performance was in any way a big deal meant to create huge controversy.
“They’re overthinking it … You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me.” — Miley Cyrus.
Not so fast. My own source (a buddy of mine who I trust like a brother in a Greek tragedy) was literally standing next to Miley and Robin backstage before they went on. He tells me that any notion that this Tijuana donkey show was impromptu or in the moment is utter bullshit. He specifically heard Thicke and Cyrus talking backstage about how ‘fucking sexy’ they were going to perform. They basically gave each other a pep talk about how far they were going to take it to create a media sensation. Which isn’t surprising in the least. Just, you know, a a big fat lie.
