In the song, Miley sings, "So la da di da di/We like to party/Dancing with Molly." When it first came out, the song was under fire for its drug references, including "Molly," which is MDMA or Ecstasy.

But that wasn't a big deal. It was what came next.

In the press room, there was a gasp as she went on to strip down to nude undies and bra and did a Jersey Turnpike grind withRobin Thickeon a rendition of his hit Blurred Lines.

On Twitter, reaction wasn't exactly positive. Some expressed embarrassment for Miley. Others mocked her hair.

Country star Josh Gracintweeted: "Thanks Miley Cyrus. Now I have to explain to my 11 yr old daughter why she no longer can follow yourcareer."

And Dancing With the Stars/Bachelor alum Melissa Rycrofttweeted: "I think I'm too old to appreciate the (ahem) new Miley Cyrus....feeling slightly violated...#VMA"
