VMAs: Smith Family 'Were Not Reacting To Miley Cyrus'
Will, Jaden & Willow were actually left open-mouthed by Lady Gaga...
Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 12:32
The picture of the Smiths went viral yesterday (August 26) following the ceremony in New York and was dubbed as the family’s reaction to Miley's raunchy performance with Robin Thicke.
After singing her No.1 smash hit We Can't Stop, Cyrus stripped down to a nude-bikini to perform Blurred Lines with Thicke, shaking her booty up against the 36-year old as she 'twerked.'
Despite Will, Jaden and Willow appearing surprised by her on-stage antics, footage from the MTV’s audience camera shows they were actually reacting to Lady Gaga who performed her new single, Applause.
Claims have also been made that Willow's mouth was open because she was chewing gum - not because of her shock at Gaga - who also danced in a revealing shell bikini.
Miley - now famed for her new bad-girl image and ‘twerking’ - caused a stir online, with her performance receiving very mixed opinions.
Comedian Robert Florence chose to defend Miley’s performance saying: "People getting shocked by that Miley Cyrus VMA performance must never have been to a nightclub."
Elsewhere, Mariah Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon condemned Cyrus, tweeting: "Remind me to never let my kids into showbiz… thanks."
Thicke's mum has since commented on the performance, telling Yahoo!: "I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is now I can never 'unsee' it."
