Justin Timberlake Didn’t Mind Miley Cyrus’ 2013 MTV VMAs Performance One Bit [AUDIO]

Though a lot of parents, some feminists, some members of the black community and plenty of actual twerkers took issue with Miley Cyrus‘ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance, one person in particular dug it: the man of the night, Justin Timberlake.

“Listen, man, you know, it’s the VMAs,” Timberlake told Fresh 102.7. “What did you guys expect? I like Miley. I like her a lot,” he added. “I think, you know, she’s young. She’s letting everybody know that she’s growing up.”

“I just think it’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the Grammys,” he explained. “Let her do her thing, you know?”

Timberlake went on to note that plenty of other female stars have done controversial things on the VMA stage, including his most famous ex. “Madonna: wedding suit, humping the stage. Britney: striptease. This is not an uncommon thing,” he said. “I actually thought all the bears were really cool.”

But the bears weren’t even his favorite part. “My favorite part of the Miley Cyrus performance is the Smith family reaction,” he said with a laugh (although the photo that went viral was actually of Lady Gaga‘s performance). “I was late to the game on that,” he chuckled. “I was just shown that this morning, so it’s fresh in my mind.”
