09:06, Wednesday, 18 September 2013
has slammed Miley Cyrus
, branding her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs
"She's really freaking talented. She's beautiful. She can sing her arse off and to go up there and do that? She's cheating herself and she's cheating the rest of us… She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I'm not going to buy it. She can do better. I've seen her do better."
Speaking of her own performances, Pink - real name Alecia Moore - went on to add: "I'm a performer and I take my craft very, very seriously and I always try to evolve and be better and I never just kind of phone it in, because I believe if people are going to get up and get out of bed and go to work and spend their hard-earned money on me to entertain their family, I'm going to do it well and I'm going to do it interestingly and with class and creativity.
"I'm not saying I always get there, but that's where I try to get to."
also had a few words to say about Cyrus' steamy VMAs stint, telling USA Today
that it "was so bad".
The 67-year old singer - who has just signed up to be a mentor
on The Voice USA
- said: "I'm not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl'.
"It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."
