BROOKLYN, New York — Apparently Juicy J can’t say no to ratchet performances either. Miley Cyrus’ 2013 MTV VMA performance of “We Can’t Stop” started out cute — oversize teddy bears and party favors for fans — but it quickly turned into an all-out twerk fest on Sunday night.
While some fans were shocked, Juicy thoroughly enjoyed the former Disney star’s show.
“Miley Cyrus is super seeeeeeexy,” Juicy J told MTV News excitedly as he was getting ready to exit the Barclays Center.
Things got even crazier when Miley’s ditty ended and Robin Thicke strutted out onstage to his own summer hit, “Blurred Lines.” Cyrus, who was scheduled to share the bill with Thicke, quickly stripped to flesh-colored, latex underwear and fondled herself with a foam finger, the kind typically found at sporting events. Miley trended on Twitter and Google throughout the night and by the time the sun rose, fans were still raging and critics were, well, critical.
But Juicy J famously welcomed Miley to twerk onstage during one of his concerts back in June, and he was definitely among the fans.
“Man, Miley Cyrus did a great job man. Robin Thicke, salute,” he said. “It was crazy. When she took those clothes off? Whoa.”
Future, who has a collaboration with Miley in the works, also praised the pop princess, even if his reaction was more subdued than Juicy’s. After all, he was holding hands with girlfriend Ciara when we caught up with him. “Miley’s performance? It was breathtaking,” he said. “Miley always come with it. It was exciting, it was crazy.”
