The Parents Television Council is still fired up over the “We Can’t Stop” singer’s performance with Robin Thicke from last year and have sent MTV yet another letter demanding a much tamer show on Sunday.
“Commit publicly that the program will not contain the type of explicit sexual content present in last year’s show,” demands PTC president Tim Winter.
However, it’s not just Miley and Thicke that the council is blaming (don’t forget, Lady Gaga also performed half-naked).
“While last year’s Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke performance garnered most of the headlines after the fact, the sexually charged and otherwise inappropriate content of the show was not limited to them,” Winter writes. “Even more troubling was the fact that MTV still applied a TV-14 rating to the program, despite other adult-oriented performances and advertising messages.”
“The 2013 VMAs were a public relationship kerfuffle for your network that I feel certain you will not wish to repeat,” he threatens (as MTV’s executives snicker at the word kerfuffle).
Though there will be no Miley/Robin twerked out show this year, it will be interesting to see if Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea (who have a track record of getting down and dirty on stage) can tone it down for the PG show.
