My daughter thought it was disgusting’: Sam Bailey blasts Miley for ‘inappropriate’ VMA performance… ahead of Cyrus’s appearance on The X Factor results show
It’s sure to be one of the most controversial guest performances The X Factor has ever seen.
But one person who isn’t looking forward to Miley Cyrus gracing the stage during the results show of the competition on Sunday night is contestant Sam Bailey.
In fact, Sam, 32, has blasted Miley for her ‘inappropriate’ behaviour over the past few months, insisting that even her daughter Brooke thought her twerking performance at the MTV VMA awards earlier this year was ‘disgusting’.
Speaking out: X Factor contestant Sam Bailey has blasted ‘inappropriate’ Miley Cyrus ahead of her performance on the X Factor results show on Sunday night
Sam said of the now infamous performance to Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines: ‘I didn’t think it was appropriate for a child to watch it.
‘If I was sitting with my daughter Brooke watching Miley Cyrus twerking or Lady Gaga, she tends to put the pillow over her face because she’s embarrassed. She would say “That’s disgusting”.’
Sam added that Brooke was so shocked by the performance that she is no longer a fan of Miley’s, who first shot to fame as Disney’s Hannah Montana aged 11
She told the Sunday Mirror: ‘Miley was Hannah Montana and my daughter was a huge fan. But she doesn’t see her as being the same person now.
‘My daughter is at the age which she’s picking up on stuff on the TV. She’s like “urgh” and walks out of the room. She knows her own mind.’
Sam’s comments about Miley’s behaviour come after it was claimed ITV bosses are feeling ‘nervous’ about what the 20-year-old singer will pull out of the bag for the performance.
A source said: ‘Miley seems to be on a mission to be as controversial as possible so everyone’s a bit nervous.
‘She’s been warned to tone it down for The X Factor.’
