Entertainers have been coming forward in defense and support of Miley Cyrus’ twerking performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards. Miley-Cyrus twerking The former Disney Channel star has been smashing records, drawing 19.3 million global VEVO views in the first 24 hours of her controversial video Wrecking Ball, earning her first No.1 slot in the Billboard top 100.

Industry veteran Cher, 67, has quite a few choice words about Miley Cyrus, especially about her raunchy MTV Video Music Awards performance.  Cher, who is no stranger to controversy and wearing barely there outfits, did not find any shock value, or any value at all for that matter, in Cyrus’ tounge-wagging, booty back bouncing, hypers*xual performance.

In an interview with USA TODAY, Cher says, “I’m not old-fashioned.   “She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”

Cher found the performance to be ill-conceived noting, “If you’re going to go that far, then think about it before you do it.”

Despite Cher’s feelings about the performance, the PR whirlwind that has surrounded Cyrus since twerking on the married Robyn Thicke has been undeniable.  Miley Cyrus has been talked, blogged and reported about every single day since the MTV Music Awards.

According to marketing website Critical Mention all of the free publicity Cyrus has recieved amounts to a whopping $79,427,735.  Rumors swirling about her broken engagement to Liam Hemsworth, being a result of her now infamous performance, also kept her name buzzing.  An astounding amount of publicity for the former media darling; but at what cost?

Miley Cyrus has said that she doesn’t see what the big deal is and people are putting more thought into her performance than she did when she did it.  Cher’s point exactly.
