Miley Cyrus' VMA Show Has Cyndi Lauper Calling 'Date Rape!'

miley cyndi feud vma

Kelly Clarkson isn't the only one who is less than impressed by Miley Cyrus' sexually-charged VMA performance!

In fact, the harshest critic so far has got to be pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

In a radio interview with Australia's Brig & Lehmo, Cyndi slammed:

"That was girl gone wild. So sad, so sad. She's in a song that literally says that the blurred lines allowed you to—when a woman says no, she means yes—and that's frightful because that's date rape. And there she is a young twenty-something trying to prove she can hang with the big boys and girls, you know, basically simulating a Girl Gone Wild video onstage and I just felt like that was so beneath her and raunchy, really raunchy. It wasn't even art."

Art it was not, but we're not so sure that was her intention.

Girls Gone Wild-esque? Sure. However, we're not so sure it's fair to point the big fat foam finger at Miles for promoting date rape since it's not even her song.

And art it was not, but Adam Lambert is not so sure that was her intention.

The rare celeb to come to Smiley's defense mused:

"Listen if it wasn't ur cup of tea— all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey - she's doin something right. We all talking."

We couldn't agree more!

Some of us may not have liked her eXXXtra racy delivery, but we are ALL talking about it days later.

Anyway, wasn't it Cyndi who said girls just want to have fun? She's just being Miley!

    There's such a thing as "girls just want to have fun" and plain old attention seeking…and date rape is no laughing matter no matter what spin you place on it



  2. 2

    This coming from a guy that also has no talent Adam Lambert,

    We also talk about horrific tragedies for days, even years. Adam Lambert, just because "we talking" doesn't mean it is something positive being brought into the world. Peace to all.

    Cyndi is right on. I am glad she brought attention back to the rape song. If anything at all positive can be said about Miley's performance it is that Thicke was not the centre of attention. She gave him far more that he ever bargained for - all with a 'I know you want it attitude'. She raped his rape song.

    I've read the lyrics to Blurred Lines and I don't get the interpretation of it being a rape song. It seems more of a cheating song.

    the reason everyone is making a big deal out of it I feel is that mtv is suppose to cater to a large age group and I can honestly say I wouldn't appreciate my 15 or 16 yr old watching that simply b/c it promotes that her behavior was only acceptable but condoned. I hate to say it mtv I love all your shows whether the music or movie awards but I can allow my kids to watch them if that is what they find acceptable.

    YOU CAN'T RAPE THE WILLING.

    I would rather take Cyndi's advice than a guy who was famous for one hot minute like Adam Lambert.

    The 'point' in talking is to complain. Each year, each minute, the bar is lowered from the year before. We are aiming towards live sex acts on stage, in case you don't 'get it.' Example, while its a movie, it's aimed at the same audience, the 'extras' in Spring Breakers there was live sex acts going on in the background of the film. Breaking ground, breaking us down, so that we expect' what we will accept. If we DON'T speak out at crap like this, our future loses. The fact it's miley cyrus is 'incidental.'

    Cyndi Lauper looks like a date rape with gasoline on!

    I personally don't interpret Blurred Lines as date rapey, more typical guy talk, girls says no, guy thinks that's yes but nothing past that. The whole song is about trying to convince a girl, where many other songs are just about getting drunk and sex with out the questioning or whether or not 'she wants it'. However watching Miley 'perform' (I actually thought she could sing before seeing this!) was mentally painful, I'm pretty sure she gave me an STD just from watching. I'm sure every generation in before has said this but what is wrong with kids these days! :)

    Agree with Cyndi, who has more class in her pinky toe than Adam L has in his entire body. Wish Miley would learn some better dance moves. The ones she's doing now belong on a stripper pole.

    no talent? famous for one hot minute? GRAMMY NOM adam lambert toured with QUEEN in kiev, Moscow, Poland, and London. MTV awards. concerts in japan, new Zealand, Australia, south Africa, china, Vietnam, phillipines and all over the USA. hosted FIVA VH1, appeared in PPL, and an album that charted at #1. soon to be performing with queen in September, just co-wrote a song with nile rogers and Avicii AND sang with Cyndi lauper for a fundraiser AT HER REQUEST! choke on that,bitchez!!



  15. 15

    I don't think Miley at the VMA's was ANYONES cup of tea!



  16. 16

    i thought the whole concept of a 36 year old man in prison type suit, allowing a 20 year old girl in a lil kids swimsuit to fondle him was very, VERY creepy! was almost like an ad for being a pedophile or something!

    Cindy L. comes from the days of real music.

    Team Cyrus. Put Cyndi out to pasture, she hasn't been relevant for 30 years.

    Terrible publicity stunt perhaps??…..why couldn't she just have done a sex tape like Kim or Paris to boost her career…? At least then the kiddies wouldn't be seeing it.

    Re: The Matrix
    Are you headless? just being blind or deaf won't cut it here…Cyndi Lauper the POP icon and LEGEND not relevant for 30 years? that's a laugh. Her Boradway smash "Kinky Boots" just earned 13 Tony nods including best score that she won! her name is all over the place (again) and that was less than a month ago. her 2011 album "Memphis Blues" was the number 1 selling blues album of 2011, not to mention she already has sold over 50 MILLION albums! she won an Emmy in the 90's already has a Grammy and an MTV award and is a huge advocate for GLBT equality. She even has a fan base just from the TV show "Bones" …and she has made more money in the past month than you will see in your entire lifetime so let's put your fat bloated has-been ass out to pasture to grab your ankles and get fucked.

    Re: The Matrix – Uh…Cyndi just won one of the major Tony awards just a mere month or so ago. You're still broke and Stanning for a tart that won't even be relevant 10 years from now.

    Re: PopGear – Thanks! Anyone who thinks someone should be put out to pasture is obviously one of Miley's 12 & 13 year old fans. They'll change their tune like we all did.

    Re: michellt – Her stuff was almost considered bubble gummy in contrast to some of the heavier rock, but compared to today's, it sounds like Bach.

    Re: talamox – amen! anyone not getting how right this legend is needs to get to bed because its past their bedtime! Lauper = Legend! Lauper is a future Rock N Roll Hall of Gamer, and Miley will just be a rich former "disney star" in 40 yrs when she's laupers age. Meanwhile Lauper just won the Tony for Best Score!

    Re: @v@ – man, those were the days! when you were mine, money changes everything, change of heart, goonies - and of course the songs that are legendary like True Colors. Her most beautiful midtempo song (Time After Time) has been recorded by dozens of mainstream acts. Miley is a constructed pop act. she's the one that covers songs of people like Cyndi, who can actually write, sing and play instruments!

    if it wasn't for date rape, i'd never get laid.

    Cyndi laupper? She's from the 80s, she had like 2 hit songs. All these celebs,who have been irrelevant for years are coming out of nowhere, to talk about Miley's performance, just because they know its a popular topic and they wanna show their face, so they are using miley to get press. Pretty sad, when some 40 something year old lady needs to use a 20 year old's name to get ahead.

    Re: BRe: B
    Two hits really? either you've been huffing paint, eating make-up or you are CLUELESS to pop culture. Dino had tow hits, The KLF had two hits, SNAP! had two hits.
    Cyndi Lauper she is ranked in the top 50 women in music OF ALL TIME!
    "Girls just want to have fun" went to #2 on billboard hot 100
    "Time After Time" went to #1 on Billboard hot 100
    "She Bop" Went to #3 on Billboard hot 100
    "All Through The Night" went to #4 on Billboard hot 100
    "Money Changes everything" went to #5 on billboard hot 100
    "The Goonies R Good Enough" went to #10 on Billboard hot 100
    "True Colors" went to #1 on Billboard hot 100
    "Change Of Heart" went to #3 on Billboard Hot 100
    "Whats Going On" went to #11 on Billboard Hot 100
    "I Drove All Night" went to #6 on Billboard hot 100
    and "Into The Nightlife" went to #1 on Billboard as well so do your homework before you start writing down a bunch of bullshit that you know nothing about. by the way Cyndi is 60 NOT 40 and yes she still is winning awards so shut the fuck up you saggy horse vulva.
    where will Miley be 30 years from now? Dancing in a diaper? Cyndi is an icon and has more class than Miley.

    Re: B
    Uh…I"m sure she just didn't come out of nowhere and said something about Miley just to get attention. Your IQ must be on the same level as Miley's performance. Can you not read? She was doing a radio interview in Australia when she was ASKED about Miley's performance. Idiots!

    Re: B
    PS Cyndi Lauper isn't some 40 something year old woman. She just turned 60, and looks better than Miley Cyrus, who has the face of a chipmunk, and the body of a 12 year old boy.

    Ja ja jaaa. I don't know how old are the people that posted here. But … Cyndi Lauper hasn't been relevant for 30 years???!!!! She has sold 50 million records, 20 million singles, 1 millon DVD's, won a GRAMMY in 1985, won an EMMY in 1995 and won a TONY in 2013 (EGOT status) …. 14 GRAMMY nominations (From 1985 to 2011) ….. Hasn't she been relevant??!! Poor kids, please be going to study.
