Lance Bass Disses Miley Cyrus: She Was Naked and Humping a Finger

Say what you will about Miley Cyrus' MTV VMA performance, but one thing's for certain, people simply cannot stop talking about it.

‘N Sync's Lance Bass slammed the former Disney star's onstage antics during his Sirius XM show, "Dirty Pop With Lance Bass."

Bass, who performed with his fellow boy banders for a reunion in honor of Justin Timberlake's Video Vanguard award, explained that he was uncomfortable since his young nephews and nieces were in the audience.

"I didn't know I had to warn them that their little Hannah Montana was going to be naked and humping a finger," he said on the radio show.

And during a brief commercial break, he divulged more of his true feelings on the controversial matter.

"I think it's her thing," he said. "I think she shocked a lot of her younger fans, especially the parents, who might not be so happy with her thing, but she's just being Miley."

It seems that Bass came to the youngster's defense after slamming what was a highly sexualized performance, but he explained that Cyrus isn't the only one pushing the envelope of decency.

"I mean it is a big deal. Unfortunately I think young artists, especially coming from a Disney background, especially want to change that image…Lady Gaga does it. Everyone is like, ‘What can I do just to really shock people?' But Lady Gaga and a lot of people have really missed the mark a lot where it goes over people's heads."

Bass is just the latest face in Hollywood to weigh in on what was easily the most memorable part of the award show (for better or worse).

Brooke Shields called the performance "a bit desperate" on Monday, while Kelly Clarkson posted a cryptic tweet slamming the evening's performers.

"Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words….#pitchystrippers"

Yikes!
