Tongues are wagging – including her own – about Miley Cyrus’s now-infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance. Long gone is squeaky-clean Disney darling Hannah Montana and in her place is a twerking girl who “can’t be tamed” and grinds on teddy bears. So it’s no wonder we can’t stop talking about

1. That VMAs performance

Call us old-school, but we weren’t prepared to see that side of Miley at Sunday’s awards show. She could have at least bought us dinner first.

2. And that hair

Those weren’t the only buns Miley put on dispay. (Har, har – see what we did there?)

3. And that flesh-toned two-piece

“The key to looking sexy is to look like a hairless cat,” nobody said ever.

4. And that tongue

What does it mean? Is she making fun of us? Is she part canine? Does anybody out there know? Hello?

5. And that song

We can’t. We just can’t.

6. And this video

Is it weird that we try to re-create this dance when we’re home alone? Y/N.

7. And these photos

As Billy Ray says, “She’s still my little girl.”

8. And these Tweets

Tigger?! Please don’t drag a fellow Disney star into this.

9. And that engagement

Are they or aren’t they?

10. And this girl

Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana, if we ever said something to upset you, we’re sorry. We hope you will consider coming back soon.
