NEW YORK (AP) — It may not be a good thing for her, but Miley Cyrus had the most memorable moment at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The provocative pop singer was the hot topic at Sunday night's show: Cyrus eclipsed Lady Gaga's opening performance of her new single, Katy Perry's closing rendition of her latest hit and Kanye West's artsy set. The 20-year-old even grabbed more attention than Justin Timberlake's performance with his 'N Sync band mates.
Cyrus twerked and gyrated, stripped and swayed. She sang, too.
Within hours, the Buzzfeed site was posting the "15 Weirdest and Craziest Moments" from Cyrus' performance, which was aired live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
"Amazing. I thought it was awesome," fellow former child star Selena Gomez said backstage of Cyrus' performance. "I love Robin Thicke, too, so I like that they collab'd."
Twitter said early Monday that Cyrus was mentioned 4.5 million times on the social network site, ahead of Timberlake's 2.9 million mentions. Cyrus and Thicke's performance led in tweets per minute peaks with 306,100.
Though they were attention grabbers and nominated for four moonmen each, Thicke and Cyrus walked away empty-handed Sunday night.
