Cyndi Lauper Attacks Miley Cyrus' VMA Performance
I thought Cyndi was all for girls just wanting to have fun?
The subject of Miley's twerk heard 'round the world came up while Cyndi (pictured above with pre-Molly Miley) was being interviewed on Australian radio, and the LGBT icon decided to pull rank on the 20-year old.
“Now that was Girl Gone Wild. So sad, so sad. That was like Girls Gone Wild. She’s in a song that literally says that the blurred lines allowed you to—when a woman says no, that she means yes—and that is frightful because that’s date rape. It’s like, that’s okay, it’s cool. And there she is, a young twentysomething trying to prove she can hang with the big boys and girls, you know, basically simulating a Girl Gone Wild video onstage. And I just felt like it was so beneath her and really raunchy, really raunchy. It wasn’t even art. It was raunch. It’s so sad. I felt really sad for her. I know Gaga mooned everybody and I was laughing to my son, ‘This is like the naked video awards,’ but at least it was in art. It was like art. The other one was like raunch.”
Surprised by Cyndi's take on the week's hottest topic?
