Miley Cyrus could probably stop, but One Direction doesn't want her to

The Internet hate for Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance has been epic, but the 20-year-old pop star seems to be unfazed.

On Twitter, Cyrus pointed out that all of that chatter has only elevated her brand.

"Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute," Cyrus said. "That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact."

And with that, Cyrus moved on to being her usual self - which lately involves sharing semi-suggestive photos, usually of her butt.

While some celebrities - maybe Kelly Clarkson among them - have been critical of Cyrus' latest show, the gentlemen of One Direction don't see what the fuss was about.

"It was great. I don't get this whole, what everyone's talking about," Niall Horan told CNN at Monday's U.S. premiere of the boy band's movie, "One Direction: This Is Us." "I thought it was just Miley."

"It was good fun," Louis Tomlinson added.

One Direction weathered some criticism themselves at the VMAs on Sunday, as boos could be heard when the boy band accepted the song of the summer award for their hit "Best.Song.Ever."

But on Monday, the singers calmly shrugged it off. Said Liam, "Haters gonna hate."

    Cyrus is laughing all the way to the bank ... kudos to her for playing the fools.

    But let's be real ... she doesn't have a butt to show off.

      Miley50 has the style that the public wants and that is all that matters.

  4. Thinking things through

    Hearing about Miley Cyrus has been in the background. I thought Miley was a man's name until I was corrected about a week ago. (No, I haven't seen the "definitive" video, and have absolutely no interest for the "enlightenment".) A couple days ago I heard her voice on the radio. BLEAH. Nothing to sing about, OR with. I suppose that is why she had to make an internet-shaking video that I still care not an iota to ever waste moments in my life to view. Her voice isn't going to carry her far, that's for certainly sure. I regret those seconds of audio disaster, frankly.

    In the scheme of things this trashy little girl isn't very important. She's just one of many so-called artists that is grasping for straws because she lacks talent. True artists never have to resort to this, her 15min is up and she knows it. Once people stop caring, she's gonna pose for Playboy and then "come out" as gay. Just wait for it.

    The underworld of these products of our society is horrible. Oh the shame, the expression is not funny. Seriously, what are these s(p)in doctors truly capable of? If we could dig up the hypocrisy and violence it would surprise us.

    I guess her brand must be "talentless dumb trollop."

    Twerking looks like a cat presenting itself to mate. Come to think of it, she looked like a cat that night. I'm still not getting the rubber underwear and foam finger.
