It seems everyone and their brother has an opinion about last night’s MTV VMAs, but Kelly Clarkson was quite direct with her comments about performers who remained unnamed calling them “pitchy strippers”.
The country star took to Twitter to voice her displeasure on what she saw on her television screen saying, “Just saw a couple performances from the VMA’s last night. 2 words….#pitchystrippers.
The 31-year-old country star didn’t hold back after catching some of the eye popping performances by some of her peers.
Who could she be referring to? There are several choices, since everyone seemed to be competing as to who could wear the least possible amount of clothes.
First off, Lady Gaga started up looking like the Flying Nun and after several costume changes ended up clad in a sea shell two piece bathing suit, which she kept on for the remainder of the night. Pitchy stripper #1.
Secondly, Miley Cyrus. There is not much more to say. By now everyone knows that Cyrus’ performance was the raunchiest of the evening with her suggestive moves while dancing, half naked, with 36-year-old Robin Thicke, to her overly explicit gestures.
Most would agree that her performance was over the top to put it mildly. Pitchy stripper #2.
Whoever Kelly Clarkson is referring to, many agree with her observations including the Parent Television Counsel which has already complained to MTV for allowing the spectacle in a written statement,
“MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate twerking in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?” PTC Director of Public Policy Dan Isett said in the release. “How is it appropriate for children to watch Lady Gaga strip down to a bikini in the opening act?”
Kelly Clarkson calling the VMAs performers “pitchy strippers” brings some hope that at least some in the industry see a problem with some of today’s artists.
