Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Quite frankly? Much as I wish there was any kind of point to what she did, it's not that shocking, at all. It's the VMAs. Something "controversial" happens every couple of years there.

As for everything else since, same thing. No point of view or real content, but it's not unheard of for musicians to try and shock their audiences when they stop trying to play exclusively to tweens.

Maybe if we ignore her, she'll go away like Beiber did. Oh wait, nevermind.

I dreamed last night that her publicist had decided that in order to improve her image, they would hide her in a back room some place, and they were hiring me to impersonate her, minus any shocking behavior. I thought it was a pretty good gig.


Soo..... that's what I think of that.

She's achieved several goals and had a bit of fun doing it. Nice (anti)marketing.

It is all pretty blow out of proportion. I didn't like her before and I still don't. Her "performance" had nothing to do with how much I don't like her.

My mother is almost 70 years old. Her father wouldn't let her watch Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show because he was 'vulgar'. There's always going to be someone pushing the boundaries of art & performance. Elvis, Cher, Lenny Bruce, Alice Cooper, George Carlin, Madonna, Lady Gaga. A lot of people are complaining about her sticking her tongue out...Gene Simmons did the same thing. Anyway...I don't care.

Just makes me want to be sure that if I had girls, they never would be allowed to be on a Disney show...none of them follow the Annette model anymore, they instead try to follow the Lohan model.

Not that I plan on having any more kids, or they'd even have talent to be on a Disney show...

Count me among those that wish she would just quit sticking her tongue out. If it were "lewd", that would be palatable. What makes it sad is she think she is being lascivious, but it looks comical. Its not that she is pushing the envelope, its that she *thinks* she is pushing the envelope but it just comes off looking silly.

She is trying to be so hard to be sultry and she doesn't have clue that isn't how people see her. Its not that people are "offended", its just that they see this person that thinks she is grown up (and biologically she is), but she comes off like a preteen playing pretend.

I really don't care about anything celebrities do.

I think she wants people to notice her. Bad or good. She doesn't care. Of course she knows she's comical. Look at the props she uses & outfits she wears. She has succeeded in what she set out to accomplish...for Pete's sake, people on WOOT are talking about her!
