Gene Simmons rates Miley Cyrus' tongue-wagging
(BANG) -Gene Simmons says Miley Cyrus' tongue-wagging at the MTV Video Music Awards was ''okay'' for a ''girl's version''.

The KISS legend - who himself is known for having a long tongue - has weighed in on the 'We Can't Stop' hitmaker's performance at the event last month.

Speaking to E! News, he said: ''It was okay ... But that's a girl's version.

''It's like girls' basketball. It's as good as girls can get at basketball. But you can't play with the guys.''

The outspoken musician defended her performance, which saw her dressed in a flesh-colored bra and panties as she gyrated against singer Robin Thicke - and insisted it's no different to how stars have behaved in the past.

He added: ''Whether you stick out your tongue or shake your tushy, all the other girls are doing the same thing.

''Any girl whose name ends with an A - Madonna, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, all these girls who sing pop songs through backing tracks like it's karaoke and gyrate all over the stage - if they can do it, why can't Miley?

''Either condemn the whole lot of them or leave her alone.''

      Mr. Simmons lost credibility some years ago (assuming you never watched Family Jewels which was horrible "reality") when after protesting that marriage wasn't for him (FOR YEARS) he married Shannon. The hypocrisy stinks still today, and this money grubber's words mean nothing to me any more.

      Of course he will make exceptions for HIS kids.

      Cards on the table, I don't care about the Cyrus family. I mean AT ALL. Not a fan of father or daughter. But in doing AN ACT, and not cheating on her boyfriend, and not doing drugs, and not getting in legal trouble, but simply stirring up controversy to get attention for her next CD of whatever, I think Miley is far more savvy than you give her credit for. After all, she is all you are talking about.

      And there is a whole world of difference between nude and what she was wearing, just as there is a whole world of difference between fake twerking and actual sex.

      Much ado about nothing, methinks.

      And Mr. Simmons sees that and wonders "well, if Sophie did that and made money for herself or for me, I would support that, wouldn't I? Of course I would."

    Well said Gene! No one gets on Lady Gaga cavorting around with two shells over her breasts and a tiny little thong. Rhihanna walks around with see through tops all the time. Not sure about Shakira though, haven't seen her very much.

    Just hope Miley does not come out with a SEX book like Madonna did back in the day.

    I love the Wrecking Ball song, just think that it must have been quite cold on her "parts" sitting on that metal ball. Brrrrr!

      I think the Wrecking Ball song is great! Gene is right. Everyone seems to be full of HATE these days.I thought her MTV performance was nothing out of the ordinary. Seen it before so why are some people acting like they were in shock over this.... her other song that just came out-We cant stop, is great too. Got both of them on my I-pod!

    Could not have said it better myself. It's just too bad she did it with such an untalented guy like Robin Thick. He can't sing as his voice is horrible, his new video is worthless but yet it's ok for him to parade around with half naked women and he is not shunned for it. There is still a really disgusting double standard in the industry and the world in this 21st century. There are plenty out there that have done far worse then what Miley did.

    The sixties started the "SEX, DRUGS AND ROCK AND ROLL" theme and it has just progressed from there... except for the GOOD music. It is rare to have any REAL talent these days. It is all about smut and outrageous behavior and bad music. Just plain naked will be the next thing. This world is becoming a cesspool of crap. We should be worried about that and not about the idiots who need to writhe around on a stage just trying to outdo the last one. They all look and sound the same. Can't blame them though.. it is the trends of the day. We may not have a world soon so I think there is much more to care about than them.
