Why did Miley Cyrus put on such a crude display?

Viewers and celebrities alike were shocked as they witnessed Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs in which she stripped off her leotard, revealing a bra and pants combo and then "twerked" and grinded against Robin Thicke, the married Blurred Lines star. Miley put on a sexual display wiggling her bum and pointing to Thicke's crotch. Many will be thinking WHY did she do this?

Whilst you could speculate that Miley's actions were spontaneous and un-choreographed, it is very plain that she planned this as she tweeted days before her performance "If everybody were like everybody else, how boring it would be.", hinting at the wacky performance she would give. She also tweeted 'Dear VMAs, I am about to fvvvvckkkkk yoooooo shitttttt uppppppppp. Love, Miley', suggesting that she had something controversial organised.

Days before Miley had been posting tweets about her new album 'BANGERZ' and repeatedly asked fans to #votemiley to win a VMA. It is very probable that she put on such an inappropriate performance to get publicity for her new single, following the example of others such as Madonna and Britney Spears whose kiss in 2003 generated a media storm. Miley even told MTV ahead of her perfomance that it would be "crazier" than the Madonna and Britney moment. Miley's twerking is up there with Britney Spears shaven head and Lady Gaga's meat dress. She's just another star, willing to compromise the public opinion of her in order to sell records.
