He doesn't have a thought either way...
Since everyone has chimed in on Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs, the media is moving back around to people who already did. Justin Timberlake, who commented on Miley's performance of "We Can't Stop" and "Blurred Lines" at the show the day after it, was asked on Today about the uproar and his response was rather measured.
"I don't know that I have a definitive thought in one direction or the other about it," Timberlake said. "I think she's really smart, and I think she's really talented. I'm not saying I agree with the presentation, but I also feel like every 10 to 15 years we pick somebody that this is what we're going to do with them, is we're going to make them the model of who we want our daughters to be or not be."
When asked right after the perfomance he had said "She's young, she's letting everyone know she's growing up. It was the VMAs, what did you guys expect? It's not like she did it at the Grammys. Let her do her thing."
