Miley Cyrus had the most memorable moment at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The provocative pop singer was the hot topic at Sunday night’s show: Cyrus eclipsed Lady Gaga’s opening performance of her new single, Katy Perry’s closing rendition of her latest hit and Kanye West’s artsy set. The 20-year-old even grabbed more attention than Justin Timberlake’s performance with his ‘N Sync band mates.
Cyrus twerked and gyrated, stripped and swayed. She sang, too.
She had a helper at the VMAs: Robin Thicke. After performing her edgy hit, “We Can’t Stop,” she stripped off her outfit to reveal a nude bikini.
She sang the first verse of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” then grinded on the R&B singer and made suggestive moves with a foam hand.
