VMAs 2013: Will Smith and Family’s Reaction to Miley Cyrus’ Twerking Is Perfect

Will and Jada, and kids Jaden and Willow sum it up perfectly in new viral photo

Miley Cyrus took to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards 2013 to remind the world that she no longer wanted to be thought of as the former Hannah Montana but as of some rad, totally cool young woman (with very questionable taste in fashion, I might add).

Her performance might have made the awards show relevant again, as some voices online are saying, but it also marked a first for Miley in terms of setting a new “standard” for how naughty (for lack of a better term) she could get.

I didn’t like her performance and, as it happens, many others felt the same way. Will Smith’s family is among those people, as the photo above, which went viral minutes ago, can confirm.

It shows Willow, Jaden and parents Will and Jada’s reaction to Miley’s strutting on stage in a bear onesie, twerking shamelessly and doing many other obscene gestures.

It also sums up perfectly how most viewers feel about Miley’s new “rebellious” stage.

The same goes for this:



[Update, August 27, 2013]: As several of our readers pointed out (thank you all!), the Smiths' reaction wasn't for Miley Cyrus but for Lady Gaga. And it wasn't a shocked reaction at all. More on that here.
