Miley Cyrus seems to love going as naked as possible onstage and acting outrageously – even simulating intimate acts. Jimmy Kimmel’s Aunt Chippy had choice words for her MTV performance in which she was grinding into Robin Thicke. And it seems that her antics with Thicke created such a row between the singer and his wife, that Paula Patton wants a divorce. The San Jose Mercury News on Feb. 27, 2014 reported, “Miley Cyrus episode helped end Robin Thicke's marriage.” Entertainmentwise got to the heart of the matter on Feb. 27, 2014 noting, “Paula Patton Felt 'Utterly Disrespected' After Robin Thicke And Miley Cyrus’s X-Rated Performance.”
Although Miley’s act may have taken Thicke by surprise, Patton was apparently angered that he played along in front of millions of viewers.
Blurring the lines
Some opinion writers have said that Miley’s performance was a parody of Robin Thicke’s "Blurred Lines" and, as such, we are judging her too harshly. However, can it be said that both are demeaning women? Patton seems to think so and is refusing all Thicke’s attempts to reconcile.
Aunt Chippy blamed Billy Ray Cyrus for her Miley's antics stating “Stay home and take care of your daughter. . . start acting like a father." To Miley she had harsh words, “You’re a pig.” Aunt Chippy On: Miley Cyrus At The VMAs Jimmy Kimmel Live.
