Miley Cyrus Dancer Apeaks Out on VMA's Performance
Dancer Hollis Jane is one of Miley's dancing bears during her controversial VMA performance and was left feeling "less than human" after taking the stage with the former Disney star. Jane speaks out about her experience what the show was like from her point of view.
"I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand," she wrote in her personal blog.
Jane who called herself "a little person" who danced as one of the human stuffed animals left the Barclay Center shaking and crying after their first dress rehearsal, and was glad the she have friends who happened to be NYC at that time.
"They were waiting for me and I walked up to them and broke down. I love being the center of attention, but that was something different. I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons. I was being looked at as a prop...as something less than human."
Jane was asked to join the Cyrus tour but declined the offer, and realize for the first time that she is ashamed of being a little person. "We were being used simply because we were little. It felt like society still saw us as a joke, despite the fact there is literally nothing different about me other than the fact I am small," she added.
Robin Thicke on Miley Cyrus
After the scandalous VMA performance with Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke is trying to distance himself with the twerking signer. The "Blurred Lines" singers sat down with Oprah in a recent interview and opens up about twerking issue.
"People ask me if I twerk, and I'm like, Listen, I'm the twerkee. I don't twerk," Thicke told Oprah. "I'm just twerked upon."
"You don't think of it as sexual?" Winfrey asked Thicke about Miley's barely there flesh-toned latex bikini top and short and her dancing provocatively.
"Well, I was onstage, [so] I didn't see it," Thicke said. "So to me, I'm walking out toward Miley, I'm not thinking sex, I'm thinking fun. ...I'm singing my butt off. I'm singing and I'm looking at the sky and I'm singing and I'm not really paying attention to all that. That's on her."
According to Thicke, he spent his career playing it safe and his intent during the performance is to give his audience something to "talk" about.
"They told me [beforehand] that Miley's going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over ... I just said, 'I don't care, let's entertain the people,'" he told the November issue of Vanity Fair.
"Let's give them something they're not ready for, let's make them talk," he concluded.
