Miley Cyrus Says She "Saved The VMAs"
"The VMAs would have been bad" without her, she says
RELATED: Get Miley's VMA Look For Halloween People were shocked by the grinding, and the tongue, and the general lack of clothing during the "We Can't Stop" performance, but, said Cyrus, "When people started complaining about the awards show, I was like, 'Have you never seen the fucking video?' And what if I hadn't done that performance? The VMAs would have been bad. They would have been missing something. The show was kind of making fun of how serious the pop industry is." Hmm. We wonder what Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, and the rest of the VMA roster think about that.
And anyway, she had the support of her BFFs, Kanye West and Katy Perry, so it doesn't really matter if the rest of the world thought it was a bit too much. "The support of other artists is important because there are not many people who can relate to what I'm going through right now. Kanye West is one of those people, and even Katy Perry has been so cool. It's easy for Kanye to support me because we're in totally separate lanes of competition, but for Katy to say that she appreciates what I'm really doing for the pop industry, that keeps you going. And I mean, who cares what the media buzz is if Kanye West is telling you that you're the shit?"
