Miley Cyrus is taking quite a bit of flack for her twerk-tastic performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. But the former “Hannah Montana” star does have a few notable defenders in her corner.
Check out who has been sticking up for Miley since her provocative August 25, 2013 performance!
In a radio interview, the pop star pointed out that the VMAs had a tradition of pushing the boundaries, as Rolling Stone reported.
As he commented, “She’s young, take it easy on her. It’s the VMAs. You know what I mean, like, it’s not the Grammys, We’re talking about Madonna in a wedding dress humping the stage, we’re talking about Britney doing a striptease. This cycle is not uncommon.”
He later added, “If something like that doesn’t happen at the VMAs, I feel like it was boring.”
Adam seemed to adopt a live and let live attitude about the whole incident.
As he tweeted, “And listen if it wasn’t ur cup of tea— all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey – she’s doin something right. We all talkin.”
After incurring some backlash for expressing his opinion, he tweeted, “Hold up! I didn’t actually state whether or not I liked @MileyCyrus performance. I merely said she was having fun and to cut her some slack”
He added, “Whew folks are all heated bout this. Hilarious. I can’t help it that I’m a contrarian — just another healthy debate.”
The “Dancing With the Stars” alum felt that the “We Can’t Stop” singer was just being young and expressing herself. As she tweeted, “I wish ppl would back off @MileyCyrus her red carpet outfit was amazing yes she pushed peoples buttons but she is young & expressing herself.”
She added, “I think people forget that she is an actress! She only played #HannahMontana but she IS @MileyCyrus!”
The “Girls” star felt that there were more important issues to worry about. As she tweeted, “Re: Miley- the commodification of women of color deserves big discussion. ‘Hey, someone put a shirt on this dumb b—h!’ doesn’t.”
She added, “I have a new term for slut-shaming, which has been feeling a little technical. How about we start referring to it as ‘being f—–g rude’?”
The “Orange County” actor agreed that there were better things to think about. As he tweeted, “This week according to twitter: outrage over Miley Cyrus > outrage over Ben Batfleck > outrage over Syria.”
The “Zero Dark Thirty” actor appreciated how difficult it is to be young and famous. As he tweeted, “the crap i was doing when i was 20??? man i’m lucky i wasn’t famous then. the public eye is not an easy place to come of age.”
Not wanting to sound arrogant, he qualified his statement, tweeting, “that sounded douchey. i don’t consider myself super famous or anything. point is… look Miley Cyrus! Have at it!!!”
The Def Jam co-founder didn’t understand what the fuss is about. As he tweeted, “Just saw @MileyCyrus. What did I miss. She was having fun. #twerkmileytwerk.”
“The Nine Lives of Chloe King” actress felt that people needed to chill out. As she tweeted, “Everyone calm down! She’s just being Miley. @MileyCyrus #twerk”

No matter what happens, her dad will always be there for her. As he told ET’s Nancy O’Dell, “Of course I’ll always be here for Miley. Can’t wait to see her when she gets home. She’s still my little girl and I’m still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change.”
