Surprise, surprise. The Parents Television Council is already concerned that Miley Cyrus's new gig as host of the 2015 VMAs will be inappropriate for children. In an interview with Gossip Cop, PTC president Tim Winter discussed his worry that the show will be "profane" and "sexually explicit," saying that these things merit a stricter content rating than MTV usually gives the show. "It's not going to be safe for children to watch," he said. "With Miley's shtick, it's probably going to be very edgy, very profane, very sexually explicit." Yeah, probably, but what's a rating change really going to do for tech-savvy kids who either know the parental-control password or can see the whole thing unfold on Twitter?
"Based on everything we've seen Miley doing in recent years, she certainly seems angry and certainly seems enjoying being the provocateur," Tim continued. "She's dropping F-bombs in her announcement on social media, which isn't unusual, but it tees up the kind of content." Oh, Tim. Like anyone's going to care about F-bombs after the Nicki/Taylor/Katy/everyone drama that went down this week. The 2015 VMAs are basically the Super Bowl for pop fans at this point. No mere TV-MA rating can stop it now.
