Mika Brzezinski Goes Off on 'Deeply Disturbed' Miley Cyrus: VIDEO


Miley Cyrus's VMAs performance has been among the most discussed of last night, and this morning Morning Joe let MTV have it, with Mika Brzezinski leading the charge:

Cyrus“I wouldn’t make a joke of it actually. I think that was really, really disturbing. That young lady, who is 20, is obviously deeply troubled, deeply disturbed, clearly has confidence issues, probably eating disorder and I don’t think anybody should have put her on stage. That was disgusting and embarrassing...That was not attractive. That was not fun. That was not funny. That was really, really bad for anybody who’s younger and impressionable and she’s really messed up. [MTV] should be ashamed of themselves....The whole thing was cringe worthy but I feel bad for her. She is a mess. Someone needs to take care of her. Someone needs not to put her on stage and make a complete fool of herself....I don’t want to see that ever again on this show.”

  1. Does anyone really care what MIKA BRZEZINSKI thinks?

  2. Yes they do. That's why she's on tv an you are posting that silly question from wherever.

  3. I agree with her, but no Rob, they don't...especially after Russell's verbal demolition.

  4. A shame Mika doesn't get this worked up when gay issues are (rarely) discussed on Morning Joe. Or when GOP senators come on and outright lie

    Mika is the worst kind of journalist -an intellectual lightweight who thinks she's smart and looks down on pop culture with a sneer (as evidenced by her horrendous Russell Brand interview). Most of the time on Morning Joe she sits on the side mutely, adding nothing to the conversation.

    I actually think some of her points here are good - but she delivers them in such a smug, shrewish manner she alienates pretty much anyone under 40.

  5. Never watch morning Joe anymore. just happened to click on while going by and sorry but Mika was on the money about this and this is something she will not waiver on. Why is it a goal to act in the most inappropriate of ways with the most inappropriate of people

  6. I do care and I agree with much of what Mika said. Do I add any weight to her thoughts because of her celebrity? No, but she has the podium because of being a celebrity and she is concerned about a serous issue. The over sexualization of teenage kids, the sexual exploitation of teenage kids, and the elevation of out-of-control barely adult celebrities, by various media, is a major concern of mine and I am glad that Mika has a platform to share my worries.

  7. Sorry StevyD, but Myley is a legal adult and can make her own choices. If she can help choose the President of this nation, she can decide how she wants to present herself. 18 is a broad legal mark for a reason.

  8. while i do think Mika went overboard with the eating disorder & parent thing, seems like everyone, even gay rags, are all saying the same thing. i think it was sad.

    btw, later in the show Donald Trump went fiercely after Mika for something about his lawsuit. even Joe stepped in and told The Donald, "Mika hasn't said a word." but then he kissed Trump's ass.......

  10. What to expect from Molly? She can't stop

  11. Joe seemed to have the most reasoned comments about this whole affair.

  13. This from a site that constantly parades "underwear models" for us to gawk at. "Oh, he's SOOO hot!", "Man, what I'd like to do with HIM!" say the commenters. This site is partly in the business of selling sex, so we're all a bit hypocritical to dogpile on Miley when our entire "community" worships the undressed male body and worships excess in our divas.

  15. Mika gives dumb blondes (a redundant phrase) a bad name.

    Posted by: Andrew | Aug 26, 2013 2:28:58 PM

  16. what??? watch Miley have a long and successful career.

    Posted by: Billy | Aug 26, 2013 2:32:23 PM

  17. The focus should be on the cultural appropriation, not on the sex. There have been far more dehumanizing sexual objectifications on the VMA performances in the past done by men, and no one was outraged. Have a girl do it is all of a sudden wrong.

  18. Miley is 20, not a kid. And every pop diva has to have her how can she do that moment from time to time.
    She'll be ok

  19. She'll be dead within a year.

    Posted by: David Ehrenstein | Aug 26, 2013 2:51:02 PM

  20. Dead within a year? LOL. She's being slutty and cheap, but she's doing FINE. Don't equate this with a Lohan-esque meltdown. Miley's just ridiculously confident. You can be a trainwreck and still be healthy at the same time.

  21. Who, David? Mika or Miley?

    Posted by: johnny | Aug 26, 2013 3:01:02 PM

  22. The thing that's so revolting about this sort of thing is that they showed the clip and then they can all act revolted by it. They showed it and therefore promoted it. The fake outrage convinces no one with a brain. This is the douchebaggery that passes for news in America these days. May the flying spaghetti monster have mercy on us all.

  23. What do they expect from all those years on Disney with her playing two characters? Don't knock what you create. She's fine and knows exactly what she's doing. Madonna and Gaga were both shocking.
    If it "disturbed" Mika that's a good thing.

  24. Touched a nerve with Mika. She was jealous. Somebody needs to pulled from the air.

    Posted by: BE | Aug 26, 2013 3:39:23 PM

  25. Yep Be. Jealous of an ugly lard ass 20 year old hick.

    GET A LIFE you stan!
