Example number 214 of why we love Morning Joe: Willie Geist reported on this morning’s program of Miley Cyrus slamming co-host Mika Brzezinski‘s condemnation of the teen-starlet’s “pole dance” last summer. Not only was Joe Scarborough sitting back and watching Mika’s stunned reaction in amusement, but so too was Mika’s father Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former cabinet member under President Carter. Good times!
In this week’s issue of Parade magazine, Miley says of Mika:
My impulse is to say get off my case Mika. Get over it…my job is first to entertain, and do what I love. And if you don’t like it, then change the channel. I’m not forcing you to watch me. I’m not forcing you to talk about me. I would do that pole dance a thousand times because it was right for that song and that performance. But dude, if you think that dancing on top of an ice cream cart with a pole is bad, then go check out what 90 percent of High Schoolers are really up to. It’s funny. I don’t know if a lot of parents remember what they were like as kids. But I’m like “dude! As if you were an angel!”
I think we can all agree to the most appropriate way to resolve this conflict? Dance off!
