    Kelly Clarkson Slams VMA Performers as "Pitchy Strippers"

    Looks like Kelly Clarkson wasn't impressed by the performers at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

    The 31-year-old singer took to Twitter Monday morning to share her thoughts on a few of the eyebrow-raising performances that went down last night at Brooklyn's Barclays Center—and it's safe to say the American Idol beauty didn't hold back.

    "Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words....#pitchystrippers," she posted on her social media page.

    Tell us how you really feel, Kelly.

    While Clarkson didn't specifically address any performer in particular, it's not hard to guess who the "Stronger" singer may seemingly be referencing.

    Miley Cyrus has been making headlines for her raunchy performance with Robin Thicke, which included sexual gestures, suggestive dance moves and tons of tongue action all while the 20-year-old pop star pranced around in a nude-colored bra and matching underwear.

    And Lady Gaga disrobed into a thong and seashell bra while belting out the lyrics to her hit "Applause" before proceeding to rock the scandalous style for the remainder of the show.

    Of course, Clarkson could be referring to any performer, but we'd be willing to place some bets.

    The engaged artist wasn't the only one peeved by the performances at the VMAs.

    The Parent Television Counsel has since released a statement, condemning both Gaga's and Miley's scandalous shows.

    "MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate ‘twerking' in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?" PTC Director of Public Policy Dan Isett said in a release. "How is it appropriate for children to watch Lady Gaga strip down to a bikini in the opening act?"

    Perhaps Clarkson can provide an answer?
