Have you seen the Robin Thicke video for Blurred Lines? All those girls being so submissive and all over him?? Yuch!!!!! Girl Power, NOT.

Good for you Miley Cyrus - you took control and whooped his ass. You were no 'good girl' - that's for sure. And after watching that original Robin Thicke video again - THAT's A GOOD THING!!!

AIBU??

Giving someone the proverbial finger because they are sexist IS a feminist statement, but that's not what she did. She waved her arse at him provocatively, that negates any upyourses from her to him many times over.

Absolutely "PublikrelationsTerror" is what we are having now. On mn anyway.

Good for miltey as the publicity, both negative and positive has been huge.
Personally the whole tongue and twerking business makes me sick.
And yada yada but along with celebrity comes responsibility. That was not a family friendly music awards night!! Imagine a 15 yr old miley fan...
She does not win this one, And yabu to think she did..! She is a young person being played by a corporate power..

Op, are you Geri Halliwell?

Ok - lets put it this way - the video is REALLY terrible.
Makes Miley look good.

Anyway, that's my take. I had a severe reaction to the video. So much so, that I appreciated a young girl getting in his crotch and making him feel uncomfortable. (Even if I thought 'Oh God' when I first say the Miley take)

Look at the video.
blurred-lines

YIKES! - just found the unrated version - much worse! blurred-lines-unrated It even has that finger!

Just so you know, if you post links, people clink them, then advertisers make money so you have HELPED Robin Thicke. HTH.

Waffling - no not GH - a few years older..

YouTheCat You do know this isn't real? It's like wrestling

Not everyone does...

I find the style adopted for this one a bit Americanised, a bit too obvious. But then no-one takes Miley Cyrus seriously? Surely everyone is aware it is a sarcastic kind of performance?

He did look a bit uncomfortable good but I don't think she exploited him, far from it.

MaMattoo - unfortunately, even thought 15 years olds are avid VMA/MTV fans, I think VMAs are aimed at the 18+ age group. They actively seek to be controversial.

thecatfromjapan Mon 02-Sep-13 00:54:59

Not "controversial", nontroversial. That is: it is a pretend, fake controversial that leaves embedded power structures in place (or more firmly entrenched).

Is there a word for things that generate a lot of media noise? There must be, I think. But I don't know it. Does anyone on mn know it?

softlysoftly Mon 02-Sep-13 00:55:17

Ok confused as fuck now someone help me out! I avoided any knowledge of any of this but have now watched original video (omg) and the miley cyrus thing (no idea who she was).

How is her song in any way negating his? She sang with him and simulated lots of sec with him. I'm missing something confused???

noobieteacher Mon 02-Sep-13 01:26:27

I like nontroversial, invented by Madonna.

A thing that generates a lot of media noise? Publicity stunt - a bit 1970s though, need something more 21st century.

Media noise - mediophony?

noobieteacher Mon 02-Sep-13 01:27:00

Oh softlysoftly where HAVE you been?

Faezy Mon 02-Sep-13 01:29:28

she humiliated the both of them.

Late night brainwave - I think actually this is all about dodgy videos being banned before a certain hour - this is relatively new but if probably just starting to affect the business. I can't think how, but I can imagine them all in the background saying 'yeah if the censors want to restrict our supreme but dodgy videos let's show them what they're missing - now who can we find that will do something really stupid and think it's cool? blablabla'.
