Miley Cyrus Performs Surreal, Teddy Bear-Filled Version of 'We Can't Stop'

The artists behind two controversial summer singles joined forces for a surreal performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

After being introduced by Vanessa Bayer impersonating her, Miley Cyrus climbed out of a giant teddy bear, sticking her tongue out of the side of her mouth. She then strutted around the stage, accompanied by dancers wearing giant teddy bears, performing her controversial single "We Can't Stop."

Sporting a furry bustier designed to look like a mouse, the 20-year-old singer at one point grabbed the rear end of one of her dancers.

MTV also bleeped the word "molly" in her song, which is believed to a reference to ecstasy.

Cyrus then stripped down to a gold two-piece to join Robin Thicke for the beginning of his performance of "Blurred Lines," alternating lines with the R&B crooner.

She also danced around him suggestively, touching him with a foam finger.

Thicke sported a Beetlejuice-esque black-and-white vertical striped suit.

After "Blurred Lines," Thicke then segued into his new single "Give It 2 U" while Cyrus remained on stage dancing suggestively with her foam finger.
