Ever since Miley Cyrus twerked her way into history with a controversial performance of “Blurred Lines” and “We Can’t Stop” at Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, fans and stars have been criticizing the former Disney star nonstop for her raunchy new image. But one star who is still #TeamMiley is Justin Timberlake, who recently defended Cyrus’ right to twerk on TV.
According to Gossip Cop, Timberlake recently did an interview with the “Jim & Kim” morning radio show and told the hosts that there was nothing wrong with Cyrus’ salacious performance.
“It’s the VMAs — what did you guys expect?” Timberlake said.
In Timberlake’s eyes, Cyrus is just enjoying being a young woman and her performance was appropriate for the MTV.
“I like Miley. I like her a lot … she’s young, she’s letting everyone know she’s growing up,” Timberlake said. “It’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the Grammys. Let her do her thing.”
Regardless of what anyone says, we’re sure that Cyrus is going to continue to do her thing and keep twerking no matter what. Check out some other celebrity twerkers below. – nicholas robinson
