Accept responsibility for your actions
Yes, Miley Cyrus was a hot, comical mess at the VMAs, but the man twerking behind her rescinded all involvement in the whole act, and even condemned it when he realized no one liked it. You were at rehearsals for your big performance Robin, so really there’s no excuse.
