The latest to weigh in...
In an interview with USA Today, Cher revealed she was not a fan of Miley Cyrus' performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Here are highlights:
On Miley Cyrus: [It] was so bad. I'm not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."
On her song with Lady Gaga getting scrapped: "She didn't like it. I wasn't thrilled with my part, and she wasn't thrilled with her part, and neither one of us were thrilled with the music. She was the one who said, 'I don't want it out.' I would have given it another shot and re-recorded my vocal and had someone else do the music. But she was over it, and it's her song."
On going on tour again after eight years: "The road is a nasty place and lonely. The shows make it worthwhile. If I didn't do it now, I would never, ever do it again. Tina (Turner) went out when she was 70, but ... she's much tougher and has an energy like I've never seen in any human being."
