Miley Cyrus Calls Out MTV VMAs Director For Alleged Sexist Comments Ahead Of Her Performance
Miley Cyrus is calling out the director of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards over sexist comments he allegedly made to the singer.
“I wanted the lights to be turned off and then the lighting of the room to just be lighting me. So no key light, no beauty light.”
The singer goes on to say,
“Beauty light is always used on women. And I said, ‘turn the f***ing lights off. You would never tell Travis Scott or Adam Levine that he couldn’t turn the beauty light off. I want this red lighting.’”
According to Miley Cyrus, the production team agreed and said,
“We’ll just do the same thing that we would do with the guys.”
The “Wrecking Ball” singer continued, claiming,
“And then something that I was doing, something that I can’t say for the VMAs, my bracelets kept getting caught in all this s*** and they said, ‘You know you wanted to be treated like a guy and lit like a guy? We wouldn’t be dealing with this if a guy was doing it.’”
Miley admitted that the conversation was “embarrassing” for her, but said it doesn’t stop her from being
“firm about what I want, but in a way that, you know, you might expect someone might say, ‘Man, she was a diva, she was a b****.’ But it’s again, it’s like, OK, have The Weeknd come in here and say the same thing.”
She added that Kanye West wouldn’t receive the same treatment.
