Many would agree that watching Miley Cyrus gyrate against Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards was uncomfortable, to say the least, but it seems that his wife, Paula Patton, was apparently fine with the raunchy set.
Sources close to the actress tell TMZ that Paula was well aware of what to expect from the risque performance because there were “tons of rehearsals” before the event. The gossip site refutes earlier rumors that the singer’s wife was furious following the set, which included Miley kissing Robin on the neck and touching him below the waist with her foam finger.
While Paula has remained silent on her social media accounts, Robin tweeted that the event was “a wild night” and thanked MTV for letting him be apart of it.
His father, Alan Thicke, who previously defended the suggestive lyrics in “Blurred Lines,” failed to comment on Sunday’s performance but he did tweet on Monday afternoon that the visual for the song “prompted global dialogue about sex, nudity, morality, and barnyard animals.”
Meanwhile, Robin’s mom, singer and actress Gloria Loring, told omg! Insider, “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.” She added, “I didn’t get what her point was. It was so over the top as to almost be a parody of itself.”
His mom wasn’t the only one who found the performance to be inappropriate, the Parents Television Council has issued a statement regarding the former Disney star’s controversial routine. “MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials — while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable,” said the statement from PTC’s director of public policy.
