The Miley Cyrus parent reaction to the 2013 VMA Awards is universally controversial. Parents are questioning why a child star who became famous as Hannah Montana would put on a sexually driven show. The response to her dance as well as the flesh colored latex bikini is resulting in numerous VMA complaints. The Parents Television Council’s response to the former child star’s performance with Robin Thicke to Blurred Lines condemned MTV.
“MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials — while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable,” the watchdog group’s director of public policy, Dan Isett, said in a statement. Ironically, Billy Ray Cyrus, who is on the board for the Parents Television Council, is also Miley’s father. He has yet to comment. Since the 1984 “Like a Virgin” Madonna performance, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga on the VMAs has continued to cause controversy among parents and families.
Reaction to the provocative dance by Miley Cyrus at the VMAs can be seen by the traffic generated on the social media outlets. Parent reaction to Cyrus’ performance has sparked criticism over and above what is generated by typical MTV programming because of her previous status as a teen-friendly Disney star. The New York Daily news quotes a statement from the Parents Television Council “…condemning MTV for an over the top telecast that was rated as appropriate for audiences 14 and under.”
VMA complaints even extended to reactions from the entertainment industry, a community known for its liberal standards regarding expressions of art and have been also reacting to the explicitness of Miley’s dance. Lance Bass, formerly of the boy band NSYNC, noted that his nieces and nephews were tuning in to the VMAs to watch his performance, commented on Sirius XM “I didn’t know I had to warn them that Hannah Montana was going to be naked and humping a finger.”
