As your newsfeed has no doubt informed you several hundred times by now, Miley Cyrus sparked a J onstage Sunday night during MTV’s European Music Awards.
Meanwhile, MTV finds themselves in the good graces of a group that typically condemns them: The Parents Television Council. That group applauded MTV for editing out the footage of Cyrus smoking when the show was rebroadcast on Stateside MTV.
“Last night MTV made a responsible decision and they executed it perfectly,” PTC President and M.I.A. nemesis Tim Winter said. “It is unclear whether MTV’s actions suggest stricter content guidelines for its TV-14 programming, or whether this is just an example of the old saying that ‘even a broken clock is right twice each day.’ We certainly hope it is the former. We applaud MTV for taking responsible actions to eliminate the drug use from its U.S. broadcast, and we urge them to make that a uniform policy for all of its programming.”
Cyrus will get another chance to scandalize people once again when she performs at the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 24, and then every night for several months when her Bangerz tour kicks off on Valentine’s Day 2014.
