Robin Thicke rules out performance with Miley Cyrus at MTV Europe Music Awards


Robin Thicke has ruled out the prospect of performing with Miley Cyrus again, insisting their raunchy routine at the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony was a one-off.

Cyrus made headlines in August when she hit the stage in latex underwear to perform a saucy routine with Thicke to his hit track "Blurred Lines," and footage of the raunchy stage show became an Internet sensation.

Both stars are expected to appear at the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards in the Netherlands on Sunday, but Thicke has now confirmed there will be no repeat performance with Cyrus. He made the revelation in an interview with U.K. talk-show host Alan Carr, who asked whether fans could hope for another racy duet.

Thicke replied, "Oh no, no no no. ... No no, definitely no, definitely not."

 The singer also revealed that although the VMAs performance was planned, he had no idea Cyrus would don such a raunchy outfit, adding, "You know the only difference was she didn't wear that outfit in rehearsals, so it never seemed as bad, it seemed more playful. And to us, there was no sexuality between us, it was all silliness and fun, it was like throwing a party at your house and being silly."

And that's your opinion not saying she could have done it differently but both were there on the same stage and at rehearsal thicke knew what was going to happen so why is miley getting so much crap but not thicke all im saying is miley did it how she wanted to and hopefully shell settle down and your wrong miley is very talented her recent album is good and was stunned when I saw that performance I would like to see it stand on both side not just miley

I like Robin's honesty and can easily see where it could have been playful until the finale'...glad there will be no encore.

oh please. ALWAYS blame the woman.  He had no idea she was going to wear something sexy during the MTV awards?  Does ANYONE (female) cover up during their perfomance and the VMAs?  It wasn't the twerking, he says, it's the dressing and twerking?  Shut up, Thicke.  You're an idiot.

Good for you Thicke, I consider that performance (MTV) to be a private party situation...
