I like Miley Cyrus. Well, not like but I don't really have any issues with her. Her voice sounded funny in the very beginning of the song, but the rest sounded like her normal voice. She didn't "pole dance" she was holding onto a pole while being pushed around on a cart onstage? There isn't anything wrong with that. Her shorts ARE short, but look at the shorts in any normal junior department in a store. You have short, above the knee bermuda things, or capris. Shorts for teen girls have been like that since I was 10 or 11. The ONLY thing that I think is a little too much is her shirt. There was barely a back/side to it and you could see her bra a lot. She should have had a small tank on underneath the shirt. But that's it.
The Dane Cook thing was way inappropriate. If it were at like, the VMA's or something it might be less inappropriate because the general audience isn't very young like the TCA's. I kind of don't understand why he was even there, his movies/stand up aren't for young kids. If he would have walked up to her and said something, whatever. I'm sure that's not the worst that someone has said to her. He just did it for the publicity. We're all feeding into it, which is just exactly what he wanted.
