David Cameron and his bunch of miserablist hangers-on will be well unpleased as their bête noir, Miley Cyrus, was among the winners at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in California.
Miley Cyrus won the Video of the Year award for Wrecking
Ball , which according to PC extremists has 'sexualised' and 'harmed' anyone who watches it. And it's one hell of a lot of 'harm' as the video has now been watched 699,008,259 times on YouTube alone.
The easily 'outraged' are enjoying the latest music video from Miley Cyrus called Adore You
Supposedly even the singer's own fans have joined the backlash against her latest raunchy video, branding it gross', sick' and pornographic'.
The former Disney star has been accused of cynically exploiting' her hordes of teenage fans by releasing an X-rated video of herself on Christmas Day simulating masturbation to the sound of her new single Adore You.
It has prompted one of the
Government's main whingers about online child safety, the secretary of the Children's Charity Commission John Carr, to call for immediate action to ensure such videos have 18+ age ratings. He spouts:
Lots of children
and young teenagers will be browsing the internet with the tablets and mobile phones they have been given for Christmas. And one of the first things they will have stumbled across on Boxing Day is this explicit video. Instead of being freely available
online it should be hidden behind age-filters.'
Pippa Smith of Safer Media, a campaigner against violence, sex and strong language in the media, called the video a new low' in teenage pop culture.
Meanwhile the video is proving
very popular on YouTube with 15 million views. Hardly sounds like a fan backlash.
There are plenty of moralists, feminists and bullies that make the news whingeing about their pet peeves of sexy videos. But its good to see the other side of the coin and see how popular sexy music videos are with the public.

music videos most watched on Vevo for 2013 rather show that sexy is very popular indeed.
