I know poor little Miley really thought she would become the next best thing since sliced bread with that performance but guess what? There is a proverb in my mother tongue which says “some dancers get rewarded and others get flogged!” Never was a saying more apt than in this particular case. The little I saw of the performance was just plain horrid and trashy and there was nothing remotely “cute” or sexy about it. I mean she had her tongue sticking out the whole time like she was on heat or sumfin!
The fashion magazine mogul, who was set to position Cyrus as the next fashion icon, decided to go in a different direction after the singer twerked her way to the headlines.

While some may be celebrating Miley Cyrus‘ scandalous antics amid raised eyebrows and dropped jaws, Vogue’s editor-in-chief isn’t.
“Anna found the whole thing distasteful,” an insider revealed. “She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.”
The 20-year-old singer has claimed she’s merely growing up and shedding her good girl Disney Channel persona. But her twerking paired with nearly nude attire has convinced Wintour, 63, to turn the other cheek in search of a more suitable cover girl.
While Miley Cyrus continues to defend her tongue-pointing, twerking VMAs performance, others felt it compromised her image. Anna Wintour decided Cyrus was not the woman she wanted on the Vogue cover after all.
Cyrus was photographed for the December issue as Vogue’s lady in charge wanted to position her as a new fashion icon. Now, while Cyrus is supposedly becoming a woman of her own style, Wintour isn’t impressed.
“Me and Robin (Thicke) the whole time said, ‘You know, we’re about the make history right now,'” Cyrus said in an exclusive interview with MTV on Sept. 2.
“I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times,” she added. “Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s when you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.”
The “Party in the U.S.A.” singer can now kiss her Vogue cover goodbye as that is also history.
