Delusion: Miley Cyrus Compares VMA Performance To Britney Spears And Madonna

Published: Tuesday 3rd Sep 2013 by David

‘Take your medication Miley…a short vacation Miley…’

For one reason or an unfortunate other, those who either were too young to remember or yet to be born when Madonna and Britney Spears enjoyed their respective peaks, have been fed a gross mistruth by in recent years.

A mistruth, that claims that controversy and ‘rubbing critics the wrong way’ saw both ladies afforded the praise and acclaim they enjoyed then and still enjoy today.

Perhaps in trying to justify the messiness and lack of musicality that stops their favourite acts from reaching icon status, the misinformed willingly overlook the dedication both women showed to their craft on and off stage when deciding that ‘this talentless one’ and ‘that talentless one’ have what it takes to be the next ‘insert name of icon’.

Now watch the confused soul that is Miley Cyrus compare her VMA performance to that of Britney Spears‘ and Madonna‘s, in an interview with MTV below…

    Britney was and will always be the Queen of the VMAs for me, I love Madge but Brits performances really were ‘iconic’.

    For Miley to even think shes in the same league as either ladies is hilarious..

    • Toto September 3, 2013

      Miley is skanky white trash trying to act like black trash cause she thinks it makes her “cool”.

      • Toto September 3, 2013

        Side note…. She is ugly as f***. God damn, she is ugly.

    • Bobby September 3, 2013

      Not a Miley stan – the lady I stan for (Beyoncé) would never do such a thing but Miley clearly was NOT saying she was in their league. She wasn’t comparing anything she has done to what they have done – she was speaking in terms of shock value. Making a statement _ leaving her mark.

      Whether you liked/agreed/or even saw with what she did .. she made her point. Here we are over a week later still discussing it.

    • mollycyrus September 4, 2013

      yeah that makes complete sense you uncultured dumb f***

  6. Suicide Blonde September 3, 2013

    Lol, gurl Madonna and Britney remains the Queen and Princess of Pop, get over it wannabes, it will always be like that. Iconic/hostory my d***, the only iconic thing on the VMA’S this year was JT’s ASS and Rihanna reactions.

    • angela September 3, 2013

      People are confusing memorable with iconic. It takes YEARS for things to be considered ‘iconic’.

    • Ballsy September 3, 2013

      Onb a serious note. Miley sure is ugly like really ugly! She is facially challenged tbh

    Who wrote this? This dribble sounds like something I would expect from the two most pressed basic h*** on TGJ (@ROSIE and @SHITBIRD)

    The struggle to “read/drag” is real. This site is getting more and more basic with every article posted.

    • Rosie September 3, 2013

      Not you STILL thinking about me at 12:36 in the afternoon. Sweetie, if you look up “desperate b****” in the dictionary, you and a pic of your blurry ass Gravatar comes up. No wonder even the absolute worst trolls on TGJ hate you.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) September 3, 2013

      B**** STOP YELLING!!!!!!! HELL!!!!!

  10. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 3, 2013

    I Know This Will Sound Odd coming from me, but I get her point, Everyone in the VMAs want to be the most controversial of the night, Madonna did it with her lesbo kiss, Britney did it with the snake and With the Kiss, gaga did it with the meat dress, VMAs is for attention, who gonne get your attention the most, and miley’s performances was too bad to be unnoticed, she got dragged in twitter with mems and stuffs, she got what she wanted, now what’s next ?


    you can not talk and expect anyone to take what you say serious when you have some “nicki minaj” going on in this post, that b****’s performance at the grammy’s was one of the most horrible performances ever, even miley’s one is better compared to it. Get. real. Hypocrite.

    Double Standards Are Cute.

    • Stop the Drama Start the music September 3, 2013

      You DO have a point. *applause*

  11. Navy Nick September 3, 2013

    I am just shocked u all take Miley serious! I didnt see anything wrong with the performance, she aint no real singer or performer so it was just fine to me…., the comparisons to Britney/etc.. Is just shock value, its MTV awards not GRAMYS or OSCARS., please leave this subject alone…, sooooo over it

  12. speechless September 3, 2013

    She has really lost it hasnt she?

  13. Mark111 September 3, 2013

    Ok, the Oops performance was epic, it was a great performance and the strip down had the best shock in VMA history imo. Now Miley, you was just embarrassing, your performance sucked and Thicke pretty much saved you from being the worst performer is history of award shows. Your “ass” shaking was a last resort.

    I dunno, maybe she’s comparing it to Brit’s 2007 opening. Enjoy being the talk of the week, even if it’s us laughing AT you rather with you. Her album will open at 100k at the most.

  14. christinastherealtalent September 3, 2013

    Miley needs to get over herself. She is trying way too hard for the attention. Madonna and Britney have been out longer than shes been alive and for her to put herself on the same level as them two is beyond blasphemy.

  15. christinastherealtalent September 3, 2013

    And the last time i checked Britney and Madonna didnt twerk their non-existent skinny white asses on stage and gyrate their pelvis all over teddy bears.

  16. how cocky is that? :D September 3, 2013

    good for her… if she thinks she’s that good… well… let her. we all know better then her if we liked it. i just think tho that judging one’s own performance like that is not really a thing to do. she made history? yeah maybe. but still 2 sides of the medal. and both are unrolled on the same table.

  17. cake like lady gaga September 3, 2013

    Why are you people so bothered by how Miley acts, dresses, sings, dances, etc? Does she owe you anything? Why the unnecessary hate though?

    You people are so basic, its quit sad

    • Rellz September 3, 2013

      The same reasons you’re so bothered about Beyoncé, the Hive and her music.

      • cake like lady gaga September 3, 2013

        What on earth makes your gay ass think I care about T********* and her H**+ f****? :/

      • Rellz September 3, 2013

        Erm… *Looks at last Beyoncé post* and calling me gay does not offend me since I’m a straight female so grow up.

    • SLAY_HIVE September 3, 2013

      B**** because 99% of your comments mention Beyonce and the Hive..DUH! KIII you promote us more than your long dxck fave!

  18. LILAH September 3, 2013

    I love miley for her bravery. But to even suggest her prancing around is as iconic as Madonna, brit and Xtina is crazy nothing in the VMA’s will top that. Justin Timberlake owned the 2013 VMA’s with that medley he was AMAZING!!! Robin thicke was good but miley just took it too far and looked trashy it was awkward to watch I literally cringed.

  19. Rellz September 3, 2013

    Omg she really belives what shes saying aswell. Miley the only thing people will say when they look back at that performance will be along the lines of ‘ew who was she?… that try hard mess of Disney Kid’. That’s not good. You are not a Pop icon honey.

  20. B-Day September 3, 2013

    Miley says: “I didn’t think about it”
    Me: Well obviously!

  21. Honeymoon Avenue September 3, 2013

    Britney, Madonna, and Christina weren’t pitchy or out of key during their performance nor did they grind their flat asses on a dude old enough to date their moms. It was controversial but still a good performance. Miley was terrible in every way. She has no talent at all. JT, Bruno Mars, Gaga, and Katy Perry owned the night

  22. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 3, 2013

    I just came to say NO ONE WILL EVER OUT SHINE Britney Spears at the VMAs, not Madonna, not Beyonce, not Rihanna and most definitely not this c** bucket.

    Britney is the queen of the VMAs, the end.

    • Beyhive September 3, 2013

      Too bad more people tuned in to see beyonce & Justin’s performances.

    • angela September 3, 2013

      Stop living in 2000. We saw what was Britney’s last VMA performance.

  23. Damo September 3, 2013

    I’m glad thats she’s strong and doesn’t give a f***, it means that when she does grow as a performer she will be fearless, hate her or like her MIley is making some great records and thats mainly whats important, her performance to me was harmless fun, she just can’t dance for s*** lol, so i just want her to grow as a performer but keep that strong attitude cos shes gonna need it to deal with the hate from some of these nasty little bitchez out here that want someone to kill themselves just because they didn’t like her performance! SMH!

    Shes a 20 yr old girl who has something to prove for god sake let her make her mistakes and grow, thats all part of the art!

  24. Miley C(onfused)irus September 3, 2013

    wait what? Ummmmm, NO Miley. Just NO! B****, I preordered your album because I like your new sound but DON’T EVER TELL YOURSELF YOUR PERFORMANCE WAS ON PAR WITH BRITNEY’s “Slave” or ANY OF Madonna’s performances! B****, thats just lying to yourself! Their performance are s*** while yours was just pure trash from “Jack Ass” b-rolls… OKAY, and please do some squats & eat. You’re twerking depleted flap jacks back there made of whatever fat is left on your body. twerking BONES AINT CUTE!

    • Tisha September 3, 2013

      I can’t believe you actually pre-ordered her album, smh.

  25. Slick Rick September 3, 2013

    This is what happens when you pump up someones ego… she does a small little “twerk” video and gets cool with the crowd and now she thinking she is actually talented… i don’t understand why people give her the attention … wait till she gets too comfortable and uses the “n” word in a song and how quick people gonna remember she is a white girl… that tongue sticking out moving her back back and forth is not cute…

  26. Miss M September 3, 2013

    She is ANNOYING to the CORE!

  27. Tisha September 3, 2013

    B**** hops out in a build a bear costume, strips down to saran wrap and shakes her chicken cutlet ass while finger-banging a foam hand and she thinks she’s Madonna or Britney??

    Oh no b****. Disney Channel got you f***** up with that ‘You can be anything you want to be’ b*******.

    Be gone Miley, you’re pushing hard and soon the media is going to destro you till you’re crazier than Bynes. Be gone b****.

  28. Nichole September 3, 2013

    Miley tried and failed.

    Go sit.

    • Rihanna # 1 fan t September 3, 2013

      exactly !!!

    • Stop the Drama Start the music September 3, 2013

      I don’t even think she tried at all tho. That performance was a mess….

  29. Rosie September 3, 2013

    Only basic ass white 6th graders use her anymore. If she doesn’t stop within the next six months she’ll be the next Lindsay.
    But hey, Mean Girls is better than anything Viley could ever be a part of, so she’ll be below that.

  30. MJ September 3, 2013

    She sounds very very stupid…. #thatsall

  31. Rihanna # 1 fan t September 3, 2013

    yea ok, but Britney Spears and Madonna were big musically and still are they sold out albums, miley isn’t big because of music she is big because of Hannah Montana…..

  32. JOHNVIDAL September 3, 2013

    OMG she sounds so damn stupid. The worst part its not that she mentioned Madonna, at least she didn´t say she was as good as her or something. The worst part is when she says that she told Robin they were making history!!!!!!! LMAO What the f***??????? I just can´t. These talentless clowns really think they are respected or something lol

  33. Kingstown September 3, 2013

    She looks and sounds like a damn fool. God I hate this ugly trashy corny b****. And I still haven’t forgotten that ” I want to do something that feels more black” statement. Ignorant hillbilly.

  34. Stop the Drama Start the music September 3, 2013

    Not gonna lie. Miley looks more lesbian these days.
    And I don’t really think she was saying she was like Britney or Madonna. Just saying her performance gained attention and controversy like them. Which it did. It was still skanky tho and disgusting.

  35. Goppit September 3, 2013

    Lol people aren’t remembering it in a Britney/Madonna way, they’re remembering it in a 9/11 way… Can someone let her know this?

  36. JER September 3, 2013

    So Miley Cyrus is delusional? That’s rich coming from a BeYAWNce stan who’s compared BIONCI to every legend imaginable even when your fave has come up short time and again.

  37. Vadge September 4, 2013

    What was iconic about britney performance? Her white girl dancing? Her lack of vocals? Or is it cus she brought out a Snake? People are impressed by anything

  38. mollycyrus September 4, 2013

    Everyone stays hating, that’s what you have to love about ThatGrape and all of you clowns that hide behind keyboards and live on abusing people like you get some sick satisfaction from it. The girl will be the next Miley, face the f****** reality. Miley has vocals, the look, and the stardom. When Oldney withers away into fairy land, Miley will stand up and you’ll all be feening her c*** juice. This performance, like any VMA performance, was wild, rockstar-ish, making headlines, having people talking about it constantly STILL… that’s what’s called making MTV VMA history and iconic and that’s exactly what she wanted. You think she gives a F*** about the people that didn’t like it ? NO because she made it for the people that do like it. BOOP. Sit down log off forget your password. Love you not.

  39. Truetea September 17, 2013

    While I Agree that Miley was a trainwreck, Britney Queen of the VMAs? B**** please.. her most known performance was the one were she was a hot mess overweight, and couldn’t even get her lip-synch on. The Oops I did it again was “ok” and the I’m a slave for you was a hotter britney but Iconic? no the snake thing isn’t iconic and her dancing wasn’t spot on. Madonna in the other hand has Like A Virgin (the one who started sexual controversy in pop by a female period) Express yourself was hot and showmanship without lip-synching at it’s best without a need for snakes or a s***-full of dancers. when you’re that good of a performer you don’t need much. then there’s The most Iconic (look up the definition for those who said britney has “iconic” vmas performances you really need to look it up) Vogue in 1990..that s*** was artistic, Iconic and it still is talked about today more than 20 years later, then Madonna did in 1993 the base for gaga’s rip off on dressing like a Man with opening the Vmas in male drag, and then 2003 with the kiss was just on top. NOBODY else has had her/his song sang 3 times at the VMAS (Like A Virgin by Madonna, Then Britney/Xtina and then Katy perry) THAT’s ICONIC love Britneybut Britney Queen of VMAS over Madonna? get the f*** out of here.
