Miley Cyrus’ gyrating “bad girl” performance on Sunday night's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards did exactly what she had intended it to do. It put her smack-dab in the spotlight, making folks buzz who will, no doubt, be watching her for more.
Yes, publicity is the name of the game. In fact, it’s much like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev being on the cover of Rolling Stone, which was a boon for the magazine. Anything controversial that raises eyebrows and stirs a debate becomes a hot seller.
In any case, no more goody two-shoes Hannah Montana. The new titillating Miley Cyrus has become a hot commodity.
