If she was trying to get attention, I guess it worked…
Miley Cyrus’ pole dance at the Teen Choice Awards (of all places) is being bashed by bloggers all over the Internet.
EW.com says, “But the stripper-esque choreography, coupled with Cyrus’ questionable red-carpet attire, came off completely inappropriate and ill-advised.”
The LA Times blog has the headline “Miley goes too far (and too low),” followed by, “There are so many things wrong with this performance of ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ The too-short shorts, the exposed bra and, oh yeah, the stripper pole on the ice cream truck.”
These quotes may not phase the star, who won six surfboards that night, mainly for her work as “Hannah Montana.” She also won for best music single for “The Climb,” written locally by Jon Mabe and Jessi Alexander. Billy Ray Cyrus won an award for Choice TV Parental Unit. Other big winners were David Archuleta and all things Twilight related.
Several other locals rocked out that night, too:
Choice Music Female Artist: Taylor Swift
Choice Music Rock Group: Paramore
Choice Music Rock Track: Paramore – “Decode”
Choice Music Album Female Artist: Taylor Swift – “Fearless”
