Kanye West On Miley: 'I Just Want Her To Twerk More'

Yeezy has praised Mi-Cy after her now-infamous VMAs performance...

Kanye West has defended Miley Cyrus over her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

Yeezy - who hit the studio with Cyrus after her infamous stint on stage - praised the 20-year old during an interview with 97.1 Amp Radio, calling her an "artist".

Speaking of Mi-Cy, West said: "I just met her the day of the VMAs. And I was like, you know, 'Go. Go. Just go, go for it, do what you feel'.

"If that was a thought, if you have an idea creatively, from a Donda perspective [the name of West's creative company] I would just want her to twerk more. That would be my thing."

Kim Kardashian's future hubby went on to add he believes Miley needs to "simplify" he performance in the future, explaining: "I think they just had her doing too many [things], or she decided or whatever as an artist. 

"Think about my 'Runaway' performance on the MTV VMAs vs my 'Touch the Sky' slash 'Gold Digger' slash 'All Falls Down' performance at the Grammys. The more experienced you get, the more you simplify."

He concluded: "I just think her entire performance should have just been twerking just all the time. Twerk twerk twerk twerk twerk twerk twerk twerk twerk, you know?"
