Miley's twerking 'tacky' according to Pink

19 September 2013, 06:31

Los Angeles - Pink has reprimanded Miley Cyrus on her twerking ways.

The So What singer insists the former Disney star "can do better" and has condemned the risqué performance in which the 20-year-old gyrated against R&B crooner Robin Thicke in a latex bikini during their rendition of Blurred Lines.

Pink told E! News" "Am I into it? [Miley's twerking] no, I think it's tacky. She's really freaking talented, she's beautiful. She can sing her ass off and to go up there and do that? She's cheating herself and she's cheating the rest of us."

Pink won't buy it

The 34-year-old pop star claims she won't be supporting the We Can't Stop hitmaker's raunchy antics as its hindering her true talent. "She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I'm not going to buy it. She can do better. I've seen her do better."

Pink admitted that while she loves to twerk - a popular dance move which involves shaking your bottom and hips up and down - it's not appropriate in public, as she continued: "I twerk all the time - like a mofo. There's a place for that and it's not on stage."

A performer with class

Pink - who is married to retired motocross racer Carey Hart, with whom she has a two-year-old daughter, Willow - insists she likes to perform with "class" when she is on stage.

She explained: "I'm a performer and I take my craft very, very seriously and I always try to evolve and be better ... if people are going to get up and get out of bed and go to work and spend their hard-earned money on me, I'm going to do it well and I'm going to do it interestingly and with class and creativity."
