Robin Thicke's mom didn't understand what Miley Cyrus was doing on the VMA stage last weekend (and frankly, not many people did). On Aug. 26, Us Weekly posted a reaction from Gloria Loring and what she had to say about Cyrus' "twerking" and inappropriate gyrating with her son won't surprise you.
"I don't understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I think she's misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial. I didn't get what her point was. It was so over the top as to almost be a parody of itself," said Loring.
Did Robin Thicke expect his mom to understand his strange performance with Miley Cyrus? Who knows? People who watched Thicke and Cyrus during rehearsals said that they didn't notice any provocative dancing or inappropriate mouth gestures. It seems obvious that Miley just went for it on impulse... or something.
No one expected Thicke to be involved in such a major fail after his success with "Blurred Lines." He had an opportunity to make VMA history and while he may have done so, people aren't going to remember the performance for the right reasons. It's hard to even imagine how awesome that performance could have been.
Robin Thicke's mom doesn't understand -- can you blame her?
