Mika Brzezinski: Miley Cyrus VMA Performance 'Disturbing,' 'Disgusting,' 'Pathetic'
Miley Cyrus does not have a fan in Mika Brzezinski.
These were some of the things Brzezinski had to say:
"That was really, really disturbing."
"That young lady, who is 20, is obviously deeply troubled, deeply disturbed...probably has an eating disorder."
"That was disgusting and embarrassing."
So Mika gives Miley more publicity, which is exactly why Miley did what she did. The question is: " Which "celebrity" will be the first to flash beaver on live tv?
Well if that isn't the pot calling the kettle black!
On "Morning Joe" Mika actually refused to let the producers play a clip of Miley's performance. I wonder if she sees some of her own objectification reflected back at her? Either way, I agree with her on the pathetic, depressing nature of the VMAs. American culture is truly at its nadir.
On a personal note, that Thicke ripoff-artist/loser grinding on Miley almost made me lose my lunch.
I'm sure Miley is thrilled to have pissed off people like Brezezinski, and is doubly thrilled that they're giving her all this free publicity.
But will all this flapdoodle really increase her record sales? I can't imagine anyone over the age of 12 being impressed by her awful VMA performance, nothing repels the cook kids like someone trying too hard.
Mika's upset that she's stuck on a failed network.
As her father, don't you think that Billy Ray Cyrus might be offended or at least uncomfortable to watch his daughter get simulatedly fucked anally by Robin Thicke?
What's wrong with this questionally talented little Miley trollop doing that on television?
Mika Brzezinski? Is that a thing?
Both Mika and Miley got to where they are because of their fathers. But, Miley has a modicum of talent.
I always say I'm not going to bother to watch these tired award shows and everytime I do, I miss some stunt like this.
I felt that Miley was being a bit desperate, she probably was taking pot.
And Mika doesn't have an eating disorder? lol!
It was rather disturbing. Mainly for that weird tongue lolling and freakish teddy bears.
She was taking pot r16, I agree, it was obvious! And she might've overdosed on it too, if she'd consumed 1,500 pounds of it, the amount necessary to overdose on marijuana*.

Doubt she was toked up. If anything, she was on MDMA.
No she inhaled r20, marijuana smoke, that's how much of a unrepentant deviant she is!!!
Go to your local beer joint and you'll find at least one person behaving like Miley did last night, with teddy bears and everything.
The girl is obviously a major hophead.
Indeed, r21 -- thank goodness our beloved former Pres Clinton didn't inhale!
Wow she really went there with that eating disorder comment.
Miley was dancing with Molly.
What a bunch old farts complaining about the young kids and their rock and/or roll.
That's what's hilarious.
Nothing Miley did at VMAs wasn't anything we haven't seen before.
Clench those dust pearls, ladies.

How dare you? Miley's performance was cheap!
Joe didn't like it either...
There was no way Joe could disagree with Mika. She scared all the men on there.
Miley's performance was embarrassingly too try hard, just like that one girlfriend who tries so hard to be cool and comes across as the opposite. But I don't know if I'd go from there to anorexia.
It was probably a very calculated performance designed to get her talked about and it worked. Every story on the VMA is about her. Plus she's got two songs in the top 10 on itunes so I doubt she's worried about Mika's concerns.
"Nothing Miley did at VMAs wasn't anything we haven't seen before."
True. The only thing remarkable about her performance was how badly done it was. Seriously, the girl can NOT move, her dance moves are as awkward as a straight man's.
Lady Gaga looked like a prima ballerina by comparison, and Gaga can't dance for shit.
She must have been REALLY hungry that morning.
"For lunch I was at P.J. Clarke's. I had a grilled-chicken sandwich with avocado aïioli and cole slaw on five-grain bread. I had water to drink — water, water, water all the time. I barely ever drink any juice"
"I had my Starbucks and my two Kind bars, and a few Morning Joe mugs of hot water. I have mugs of hot water every morning because the studio is cold, and also because it makes my throat sound clearer."
"Lunch was an arugula salad that I made at home. I use an organic strawberry dressing; it's so good. I had some broccoli rabe that I make using a recipe from [NBC anchor] Andrea Mitchell. It involves white wine; it's delicious.
Dinner was an omelette of six egg whites, fresh spinach, and a little bit of cheese — probably Swiss. I had water."
"After my run I had yogurt with granola and dried almonds. It's really high-protein, high-energy. It's a big bowl, probably a cup and a half, and it just gives me everything i need and nothing I don't need in terms of fat and protein — there's some good fat, lots of protein. It serves as a breakfast and a lunch. Later on I had some gelato — I'm at a weight right now where I can afford to do that; "
"My Starbucks red-eye misto, and then instead of Kind bars I had two bites of Grape Nuts — warm, with honey. They're so yummy. I had my four Morning Joe mugs of hot water.
Lunch was a huge, two-quart arugula salad with fresh Parmesan cheese, fresh pears, and then I put the dressing in and put Saran wrap over it and shake it so every leaf gets that yummy dressing on it."
[quote]Mainly for that weird tongue lolling and freakish teddy bears.
I actually liked the bears. They made it seem like a very trippy rave.
The only thing that is disturbing, disgusting and pathetic are people who pretend to be journalists giving this non-story so much attention.
Imagine all of the stupid things you did at twenty. This poor woman won't live this down, all because she has poor management who gave her bad advice.
Someone should have told her not to go onstage almost nude, because for a young woman her body seems odd and awkward. She didn't achieve her goal because she isn't a sexy person. Someone could have nicely suggested a more toned-down performance.
And I find it astounding that no one checked her tongue for her. How could they not do that?
Look, I'm not opposed to weird performances done for artistic or sensual merit, but this show just wasn't made for Miley. She couldn't pull it off. Her management should have seen to it.
r36: Everything you say is sensible, but it's been a long time since Miley heard the word "no."
Oh, and then there's all that cocaine . . .
I'm pretty sure that her "management" is her mother, R38. It makes it all even creepier, doesn't it?
It was really bad, like when someone tells a retarded person to do something wrong "because it's really cool" and the poor retarded kid does it thinking it makes her cool.
I thought Miley's performance was obnoxious, but Mika's "Won't somebody PLEEEEEEEASE think about the children?" pearl-clutching act is just making sure that more and more performers pull stunts like this again next year.
Here is Mika instructing the Today show directors not to show a clip of the performance "on MY segment." She was a substitute panelist, one of four people discussing the performance. Bitch please
So many people are comparing Miley's VMA performance to Madonna's "Like A Virgin" on th 1984 MTV awards. Well, guess what. Miley looked like she was having a blast! She was smiling and mugging to the camera with her tongue, I loved her energy. She young! Take a look Madonna's performance. Do not tell me she doesn't have 'dead-eyes' syndrome. She looked bored like she had no idea what she was doing. As I recall, she even admitted years after that performance she hadn't planned on rolling around on the floor.
GO MILEY! LIVE YOUR LIFE!
Madonna's performance of Like A Virgin on MTV was a classic, Miley's was desperate and sad.
I agree, R36.
R42, when Morning Joe first began airing, Mika was just a lowly copy reader. As I recall, her promotion to co-anchor was after she refused to read a Paris Hilton story on air. I believe she actually shredded the pages in some big theatrical show of self-righteous indignation and sanctimonious outrage. She was a sight to behold in all her attention-whoring glory.
As others have mentioned, M&M got their "foot in the door" because of their respective fathers, but it would seem neither is beneath a little grandstanding to keep their name in the news.
I think Mika might be disturbed about the feeling she got in what might pass as her "lady-parts" while watching the performance. This is the first time she has had a feeling shared by other human beings. Mika is Pinnochio finding out he's a real boy.
Please get the pronunciation right.
It's "MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE kuh Brzezezeinezezeksksnskeee."
When are these pale white bithes going away? Ugh!!!
Mika is an Obamabot who's addicted to Ambien and God knows what else. Why are we even talking about her?
I laughed when Mika was doing some segment on prescription addictions 2 weeks ago and was asking the panel "Sooooo ... who does Ambien?" You could hear crickets in the studio. She kept goading the panelists like "C'mon, seriously, I know you guys do Ambien." They just stared at her incredulously. Awkward.
2 mugs of boiling lemon water ... STAT!
Um, why did my post get edited?
Mika just talked about this, because she has no clue about what's going on with domestic or foreign policy in this country. As I said in another post, this type of performance has been going on for awhile. I still don't understand why this was singled out and, yes, I've read the reasons. They just all seem stupid to me. But it allowed Mika to say a few things instead of a constant stream of Joe.
Mika et al,need to shut the fuck up and go to bed!
Have to go back &read thread but,EVERYBODY needs to STFU about this. It's so creepy how the whole country starting with "the media" collectively take the pulse of any given situation,to see which way the wind's blowing,and off they go.
My better half mentioned that Brooke Shields weighed in on the Today Show,and called Miley "desperate"&raunchy! The first thing I thought was WTF does someone who started her career topless at 12 years old espousing that "nothing gets between me & my Calvin's " get the fucking nerve to take this girl down?
I thought Miley Cyrus looked really cute at the VMA's. she's young & hot & the window of how long each of us gets to look and feel like that is a very small one!
So much sick and perverted music out there. MTV glorifies the profane and immoral.
They also show dirty pillows, r55!
No one on FOX has a sense of humor. They just tsk tsk everything.
R57, Mika isn't on Fox. MSNBC is pretty damn good at the tsking, too.
I'm a middle aged straight woman who watches Morning Joe everyday and even I think Mika has lost it.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
