Sir Paul McCartney has admitted he doesn't see what all the fuss is about when it comes to Miley Cyrus' racy on stage antics.
During an interview with Sky News the Beatles legend defended Miley's much-talked-about performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs, calling it "only mildly shocking" and saying "we've all seen worse than that."
When quizzed about the star's twerk-tastic moves at the awards show, Macca replied: "I don't think it was explicit at all. You couldn't see anything."
The 71-year-old singer continued: "I watched it as an experiment to check, but you look at it and you go, 'What's everyone shouting about?'"
The Hey Jude hit maker also suggested that Miley's moves are a result of the over-saturated media environment she operates in.
He said: "She's a young girl - she's like only 20 or something - and she's just having a go. Someone said to me that the world that people like Miley live in is all noise and they've got to get above the noise. So they've got to do something."
Sir Paul revealed: "I think it was only mildly shocking. She was dancing with Robin Thicke on the awards. So what? C'mon, we've all seen worse than that."
McCartney, whose latest album New is released tomorrow (October 15), also named Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars as some of his favourite pop stars currently dominating the charts.
