Miley Cyrus: Elvis Presley twerked


Pop star Miley Cyrus says music icon Elvis Presley danced in a sexy way but was not blasted for it because he is a man.

The singer regularly comes under fire for her provocative dance moves and outfits and for stripping naked in music videos and magazine shoots. She believes there is a double standard because she is shamed for her onstage behavior while Presley was not, telling Australian TV show "Sunday Night," "Elvis, he wasn't wearing the outfits I was wearing, but he was coming out and he was doing like the OG [original] twerking ... Like, no one wants to admit that he was twerking, he was ... He was like sex. He was a symbol of sex, but no one would have ever called Elvis a slut because he wasn't a girl ... It's that double standard and I think I'm doing something for the double standard."

The full interview will air on Sunday.

If she is like Elvis can we assume she is also a prescription drug addict, will get all boated and end up overdosing herself and end up dead with her head in the toilet bowl?

Dear Ms. Cyrus,

There was no double-standard when the King moved like no one else. Elvis was condemned by the Press just as much as you have been.  The debt you, and all  of the others who came after Elvis owe him, is that without Elvis none of you would have even been permitted to get on a stage.  So keep rockin' and remember, Miley, Mick, and Michael etc, who opened the door so you could do so!

When you don't really have any major talent you are pretty much destined to be outlandish to get any appeal. Cyrus acts like she is the first girl to ever grow breasts and want to show them off to anyone willing to look. If she didn't have such a pug dog face she might not have to go so far to get and hold an audience. You look at all the other young female singers who write their own material and manage to perform it without auto-tune, lip sync and a 25 person entourage. Anyone could be on stage during her concerts and it wouldn't matter at all to the audience.

Even if Elvis did twerk, he didn't act like a dog in heat when he did.  No excuse for publically acting like a slut...even if you are one

I don't know of any entertainer that has gone so far or done so much to destroy a career than Miley Cyrus . Even Daddy finely realized he was no Elvis or rock star. One hit song didn't make him a star only a Name.
