But the thing that sticks in my mind were the ones who were defending Cyrus, such as Justin Timberlake, who said that people should expect outrageousness at the VMAs and shouldn’t be upset merely because a young woman was expressing her sexuality. Right. Rihanna would find such behavior appalling. Actually, what we witnessed Sunday night was a young woman not expressing her newfound sexuality, but a willingness to do just about anything to get our attention. Mission accomplished, I guess. If anything, Cyrus was saying that silly, sexually provocative (but not really) behavior is what defines her these days. Those around her should find that troubling. Her decision to do whatever it was she did Sunday wasn’t based on furthering herself as an entertainer or gaining new respect for a former Disney child star. It was bizarre, and hopefully — for her — not the night we someday all refer to as the beginning of the end.
