Heads should roll at MTV: Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga’s VMA vulgarity
Sexually explicit performances at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) have caused a parents group to demand reform of the cable industry, reports LifeSiteNews.
In the opening act, the always provocative Lady Gaga stripped down to a thong bikini that left little to the imagination.
However, it was former child star Miley Cyrus' performance that dominated headlines and newscasts around the country. The young star, who rocketed to fame as the lead character in Disney's Hannah Montana series, wore a flesh-colored bikini, and used a foam novelty hand in a variety of sexual ways before “twerking” in front of male singer Robin Thicke.
Networks said the program was approved for viewers as young as 14.
Parents Television Council Director of Public Policy Dan Isett accused MTV of marketing “adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children.”
“How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?” he asked. “How is it appropriate for 14-year-olds to see a condom commercial and a promo for an R-rated movie during the first commercial break?”
