Cher rips Miley Cyrus, calling her VMAs performance 'so bad'

cher-rips-miley-cyrus.jpg Cher is a certified diva and she knows from eyebrow-raising performances -- electrical tape and fishnet on a battleship, anyone? -- so when she says something was bad, it was bad.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Cher is asked about the current big music stars and of pop-princess-turned-twerker Miley Cyrus, Cher says the performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards "was so bad."

"I'm not old-fashioned," says Cher. "She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."

Yowza!

But Cher is full of praise for several other artists, saying she's a fan of Bruno Mars, Adele, the late Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga.

"Gaga's got 'it' the way Madonna had 'it,' something that made you stop and go, 'What's that?'" says Cher. "It's not just crazy clothes. Madonna had her ear to the ground and knew what was coming before anybody else."
