P!nk & Cher Rip Miley Cyrus Over VMA Performance: "It Was So Bad"

It's almost a month later and we're still not done talking about Miley Cyrus's Video Music Awards performance! (Maybe this means she wins?)

Now two of our greatest performers (both past and present), P!nk and Cher, are chiming in on Miley's polarizing MTV twerk-a-thon!

Who offered some tough love and who surprised us with the shade they aimed towards the pop tartlet??

While promoting her new film Thanks For Sharing, P!nk shared her thoughts on Miley's performance in response to a question from E!'s Marc Malkin.

P!nk says, "Am I into it? No, I think it's tacky.

"She's really freaking talented. She's beautiful. She can sing her ass off and to go up there and do that? She's cheating herself and she's cheating the rest of us…She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I'm not going to buy it. She can do better. I've seen her do better."
"I twerk all the time like a mofo. There's a place for that and it's not on stage."
While P!nk appears to be aiming for constructive criticism, it's Cher that really savages Miley.
USA Today writes in its very revealing interview with Cher:
A legendary boundary pusher in fashion and video, Cher kicked doors open for generations of pop upstarts, and she admires risk takers.
Miley Cyrus? Not so much. Her hyperactive twerk routine on MTV's Video Music Awards "was so bad," Cher says. "I'm not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."
Everybody has an opinion, but do you think Miley should take some of this critique to heart?? 

What do you think of the commentary from her fellow performers?

Anyone who read Cher's commentary and could hear her saying in her legendary voice in their head? Eh? Maybe it's just me.

I have to agree with P!nk on this, I myself love Miley Cyrus, but I know she can and has done better.

She doesn't win. She performs terribly in singing and dancing and let the wild act hits the headline. That is not a singer/artist. That's what a stripper does. 

Being controversial is one thing, deliver a kick-ass performance is another thing. She could've achieved both if she wanted to. Thing is she realises she's a mediocre singer and dancer i don't know, perhaps. That explains why she did what she did coz she's a Britney-wannabe.

Gaga, on the other hand, delivers controversial performance all the times, but no one can doubt her dancing or singing skills. That's pure talents that should earn more respect.

Cher is right on. Love that girl. I would love to see Pink doing her twerk but she does it in private. Oh well.

Everyone is STILL talking about her. Even CHER.

I think grown up Miley rocks! She'll be around a long time. Get used to it
