Parents Television Council Blasts MTV's VMAs

August 26, 2013

The Parents Television Council is not happy with MTV's annual Video Music Awards. The conservative watchdog group blasted the Viacom-owned cable network for the often-raunchy telecast that included Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga essentially performing in formal undergarments. Lady Gaga has taken the MTV Video Music Awards stage covered in fake blood; wearing a dress made of meat and as her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone. But at the 2013 MTV VMAs, Miley Cyrus stole Gaga's outrageous performance crown. While Gaga came equipped with multiple costume- and wig-changes on her side, Cyrus took over the stage with gigantic, dancing bears and more twerking than viewers at home probably knew what to do with.
