With its current lineup of performers, the 2015 MTV VMAs seem to be shaping up to be one of the most lackluster in recent history. That's why it's no surprise that Miley Cyrus' latest promo for the awards comes across as hardcore trolling, in an effort to make us believe some crazy shit is going to go down that will have everyone talking for months to come.
While the Parents Television Council might be concerned by Cyrus' repetition of the words "fuck, shit, bitch," it seems a little desperate on MTV's part.
Along with the promo comes word from VMA executive producer Garrett English, who told Entertainment Weekly they've given the 22-year-old "pretty free rein" on the VMA stage.
“Obviously there are standards and various other things that were always a part of it, but no, [no rules] … It never comes from a place of trying to limit the range, it’s always coming from a place of trying to open up the full palate," he told EW.
Well there you have it. There are no rules, because MTV is a cool mom.
