Breaking news: Parents hate raunchy Miley Cyrus tour



Outraged parents — who must not have been alerted to what Miley Cyrus has been up to since her August appearance at the VMAs during which she twerked all over the place and so much tongue — are freaking out over the shock value incorporated into her Bangerz tour.

Attention, parental units far and wide: Miley Cyrus likes to grind and lick and make many a drug reference. She also apparently likes to don marijuana leaves on her sparkly unitard while simulating masturbation on the hood of a car in front of a bunch of tweens.

Review that, Sean Daly.

Said outraged parents are now calling for the Wrecking Ball singer’s tour to be canceled, according to the New York Daily News.

Yep, Miley’s management is dealing with a ton of complaints about all the sexing in her two-hour show.

“Her team —  including management, record label execs and the entire tour staff including the director, costume department and choreographers — have been called for an emergency meeting as arenas across the U.S. threaten to pull out of the show,” a source told the TheFix.

Some parents have gone as far as to call her concert a “porn show.”

Oh, my.

The former Disney princess is defending her art, tweeting, You can’t say I didn’t warn you. Now sit back relax & enjoy the show.

Indeed, she did display a “parental advisory” warning about explicit content before riding an enormous hotdog and simulating a sex act with a dancer dressed as Bill Clinton.

And just to keep it classy, her merch includes panties, foam fingers and gilded rolling papers.

According to Forbes, demand for tickets is down and tix are being resold at lower than face value.

But Rolling Stone isn’t hating: “Miley’s music was front and center for much of the night, and from beginning to end — roughly 100 minutes long — she nailed her vocals throughout the entertaining evening.”

Well, that’s something. And to be fair, her Jolene performance on MTV’s Unplugged was pretty great. (Though that’s just a great song, so...)

Look, in the end, any parent who didn’t see this one coming deserved the lesson learned. For serious.

Goodness, Miley. What happened to all the twerking? We really prefer the twerking.
