Justin Timberlake Compares Miley Cyrus at VMAs to Britney Spears

Justin Timberlake has commented on Miley Cyrus‘ much buzzed about 2013 MTV VMAs performance, comparing her to the likes of ex-girlfriend Britney Spears and Madonna.

Madonna: Wedding suit, humping the stage. Britney: Strip tease,” Justin told a CBS affiliate. “This is not an uncommon thing. I actually thought all the bears were really cool!”

“Listen, man, you know, it’s the VMAs. What did you guys expect?,” Justin added. “I like Miley. I like her a lot. I think, you know, she’s young. She’s letting everyone know that she’s growing up. I just think it’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the GRAMMYs. Let her do her thing. You know?”

shut up jt britney at least was classy and not trashy like miley

# 2

The little devil horns were hilarious…

# 3

I agree Justin! She got everyone talking and people are going to remember this

# 4

Timberlake didn’t come to Adam Lambert’s defense after his 2009 American Music Awards performance.

There is certainly a double standard at play. If Robin Thicke had initiated the bumping and grinding Cyrus would be the victim in the aftermath.

# 5

JT is right! & It was MTV & MIley is almost 21 – so people – get over it!

# 6

@DiatribesAndOvations: Nobody asked him about Adam after the VMA’s. He only defended Miley because they asked him.

# 7

Growing up is not an explanation, many of us grew up without acting *****-y.

# 8

I think Kelly Clarkson hit the nail on the head when she noticed “pitchy strippers” last Sunday night. When you’ve got the pipes, you don’t have to undress to entertain.

If Robin Thicke had molested Miley Cyrus on stage he’d be in jail. The double standard lives!

# 9

No, don’t let her do her thing. Her performance was not entertainment and she shouldn’t be paid for that crap. The singing was bad, and the performance was something I think everyone would rather not see.

@mick: I meant the AMA’s not the VMA’s about Adam. Justin would have defended Adam though had he been asked. He’s very open about gay rights so….

SHE WAS HAVING A TWERK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, just no. Madonna and Britney looked sexies only. Miley looked like she was on drugs, like a cheap w.h0r3 who couldn’t keep her tongue inside her own mouth. It sounded desperate, ridiculous. And that’s why she became a international joke and Madonna and Britney didn’t.

I find it absolutely hilarious how JT has this look on his face like “I’m the ish you know?”…dude, go to sleep, seriously, you are ridiculous…

Come on, Justin. Grow a pair. Yes, everyone has to grow up at some point but we don’t choose the path that she has in order to prove that. Not all Disney kid’s have done this and turned out quite well. She’s just a nasty tweaker out to prove that she’s trash.

Well I like Miley really much and I love her voice and I like her new music and understand that ‘growing up-thing’. I love ‘Wrecking Ball’. Keep that in mind while reading.
But I don’t like those feelings she gave me watching her. Sadness, lost, loneliness, be ashamed of watching, desperate attemtp to come across as wild, free, happy, badass, grown up, ghetto and so on. Perhaps she did drugs, perhaps she was lonely. I don’t know but I felt sad and ashamed. And I really hope she is ok. Perhaps her relationship is rocky, perhaps there are other things going on, I just hope she is ok or is getting ok and getting help if she need it.
So I thought -like Justin- of Britney at the VMA’s. But Britney in 2007. She gave me the same feelings back on that day.

Ugh. . Miley stop twerking and stop sticking that damn tongue out. Disgusting.

I’m shocked by Justin’s comment “she’s letting everybody know that she’s grown up.” Seriously? That’s how a young woman should show that she’s grown up? That’s scary. But, I think it’s the opposite. That’s how a young woman shows that she is still a child, if she thinks that prancing around half naked and sticking her ass in a guy’s face shows that she’s grown. She reminds me of the girl who goes to a party and gets stinking drunk – to show that she’s grown – and then gets taken advantage of by a bunch of guys.

She knew exactly what she was doing….I am sure this was planned MONTHS in advance…her “performance” was meant to stir up things, keep her in the spotlight….the media LOVES a train wreck…and she’s giving it to them, whether she is on a downward spiral or not.. I don’t really get the tongue thing….I lost count on how many times she stuck it out…. But, she’s 20 yrs old for Pete’s sake….why is everyone sooooo surprised??? Britney had her “*****” moment….so did Christina…..Kesha is STILL in the “*****” moment lol….now it ‘s this little tarts turn. Let her have it…..she’ll fall on the wayside soon enough.

really people?Britney was classy??I’d like to remind you that Britney too caused an outrage, both with her songs and her performances!At her time, she was the provocative one, opening the door to even extreme performances by other artists.Just because it’s our past, we tend to think it was ok.It wasn’t.Madonna wasn’t ok at her time, Britney wasn’t ok at her time, and neither is Miley now.They all broke barriers.Just wait a few years, and then you’ll be looking back to the good old days when Miley only grinded against Robin Thicke.Soon there’ll be another Miley to “shock”you even more.

Britney classy? In what universe?! JT is delusional, why is he even being asked about this?

Her yeast infected tongue is starting to gross me out and become a thing of nightmares. I dreamt last night her g-d damned tongue chased me. The horror! ‘it’ is now in my dreams. I am going to SUE!

STFU Justin, you overrated MJ wannabee! Britney’s performance was erotic, yet tasteful, & she showed she is an amazing live performer. Madonna is a Legend who des not need me to defend her. Miley was embarrisingly pathetic & all she showed was she had zero talent & is a nasty *****. You are using this to diss your ex, you must still be hung up on her all these years to be so bitter.

Timberlake’s next principled thought will be his first.
Don’t hold your breath.

what the hell is wrong that she cant keep her tongue in her mouth? she must wanna suck everything in site. Get a STD test Hemsworth.

Hahaha xD 1 vote from me :)
