Cher has become the latest star to rip into Miley Cyrus over her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards with the legendary pop star slamming her twerking dance moves and her decision to parade around the stage in a skimpy bikini, describing Miley's body as “hell.”
The 20-year-old has been at the receiving end of backlash from her peers ever since that now infamous performance alongside Robin Thicke at the VMAs which saw her gyrate in the married singer's crotch and strip off to her underwear as young members of the audience and viewers at home watched on.

As if that wasn't enough, Miley premiered the music video for her new single 'Wrecking Ball' just a few weeks later and caused yet more controversy when she decided to writhe around completely naked.
While Miley has shrugged off comments from the likes of Pink and even Elton John, she may wince at the scathing comments from none other than pop legend Cher, who is known to have worn her fair share of racy outfits over the years.
After describing the performance as “so bad,” Cher continued to USA Today: “I'm not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well.
“She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated.”

She adds: “If you're going to go that far, then think about it before you do it.”
'Candle In The Wind' crooner Elton John recently hit out at the 'We Can't Stop' singer and claimed she is on a downward spiral, describing her as a “meltdown waiting to happen.”
“I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen,” Elton told The Australian.
“And she's so young! But she's got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her? Maybe it's a British thing, but I can spot a car crash before it happens.”
