Strength in solidarity! Two weeks after Miley Cyrus made headlines for her raunchy and over-the-top MTV Video Music Awards performance, one of the night’s other showstoppers—Lady Gaga—came to her defense during the Sept. 11 episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
When host Andy Cohen asked the 27-year-old “Applause” singer about Cyrus’ provocative “We Can’t Stop/Blurred Lines” medley, she replied, “I mean, I just think everybody need to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it’s pop music. Everybody’s entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel.”
Gaga—no stranger to controversy herself—argued that Cyrus’ persecution in the media and online has been unfair. “I don’t understand the incessant need to constantly go on and on about hating things all the time because, what, she’s 20 years old? And if anything, I give her props,” the native New Yorker said. “You know, she’s growing up in front of the entire world and maybe she’s not so happy with stuff she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free, so let her do what she wants.”
