Miley Cyrus: Robin Thicke “Wanted Me Naked as Possible” in Famous Raunchy Performance


Miley Cyrus is one smart cookie. She tells like it is. On Sunday she hosts MTV’s Video Music Awards. In an interview with the New York Times today, Miley says her famous raunchy TV performance with Robin Thicke on the VMAs just two years ago was rehearsed and conceived by him. It was not an accident.

“I didn’t really know him too much before, and I don’t really know him now. It was funny, because I got so much of the heat for it, but that’s just being a woman. He acted like he didn’t know that was going to happen. You were in rehearsals! You knew exactly what was going to happen. And he was actually the one that approved my outfit, so I thought that was very funny. He wanted me as naked as possible, because that’s how his video was. It was very much a collaboration. My part — “We Can’t Stop” — was all me. But when it went into “Blurred Lines,” that was his performance.”

Miley also says she doesn’t know about the nominees this year. She says she doesn’t have a TV. She says just has Apple TV.
