"Dude behind her in Beetlejuice costume was a little more disturbing," Urungus adds.

GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus once again took a defensive stance toward young pop star Miley Cyrus, stressing he simply can't see what's all the public ruckus about. Chatting with Loudwire, Oderus described people bashing Miley and her VMAs performance as old, since neither her provocative dance or overall behavior are something new and shocking. Asked on whether Cyrus' VMAs show had surpassed GWAR in terms of "truly disturbing performance," Urungus was quick to comment: "Absolutely not. I think [that] anyone who thinks that Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs was disturbing is just way too old. I mean all she did was wave her a-s and stick her tongue out a bunch. It's nothing that hasn't been done a thousand times by young artists learning about their sexuality." Oderus continued by giving an example of what he'd consider as truly disturbing show. "Now if it was Jennifer Anniston, I'd be disturbed 'cause she's in her freakin' '40s and apparently she just did make a stripper movie, so that is pretty f--king pathetic!" Getting back to this year's VMAs, the frontman added, "First of all, I though that dude behind her in the Beetlejuice costume was a little more disturbing. All it did for me was - the people who piled up on her to insult and critique and criticize her - I just thought they were showing how old they were." Urungus concluded, "Honestly, if that is what upsets people in this world today, then we need GWAR more than ever." During the rest of the chat, Oderus discussed how GWAR "opened doors" for such classic cartoons as "South Park" and "Beavis & Butthead." He also addressed the band's new album "Battle Maximus," so make sure to check out the clip below.

    While I do agree with him completely, I just am a bit sick of the Miley topic.

    so you agree Jenifer Anniston slutting out and doing a striptease is pathetic and not much more delightful than miley cyrus' wannabe tweaking bullshit?
    Oderus never fails to put everything in a clear sober perspective. Even if it's in a satirical manner, He's fking right. We're all following the Media way to much. What we need is a slap in the face by Odurus's giant alien monster willy that's gently swining around between his legs. Just to wake up.
    Who on earth is still talking about that crappy performance she did with Robin Thicke anyway? But the difference between Gwar and Miley Cyrus is that Gwar were designed to provoke reactions based on their choice of appearance in a music genre that isn't easily shocked by that kind of thing while Cyrus is a pop singer who is just pulling a Rhianna by trying to use sex appeal as much as possible to attract attention to herself, even to the point of nudity but doing a rather tasteless job of it
    People don't hate her because she's trashy. They hate her because everyone thought she was this sweet girl adored by teenage fans. People don't like their illusions being broken. If you ask many, her latest work, is some of her best.. Besides, she has a much more prominent persona now.. And she was exactly the type of badass the pop world was missing..

    The only thing he seems upset about is that her onstage antics have garnered more shock than his onstage antics. Both Miley and Gwar the equivalent of a circus geek biting heads off of chickens to shock and digust. Talentless people that bring nothing of any real value to the table. Screw them both.
    I don't understand all the fuss. Let her be whatever she wants, man. Besides, licking a sledgehammer isn't even RedTube-worthy.
    OK, this topic is old and it's in the past people. And also, it's not the age, she just sucks completely, I gave her a chance to impress me with her music and she failed.
    Me:"people still bringing the Cyrus topic up are just showing what posers they are".
    i agree with him but still, its annoying when its pushed in your face constantly through the media and radio over and over and over. thats why i object to her shite.
