Miley Cyrus Is Doing What Got Me Banned in the U.S.A.

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. Today, Luke weighs in on Miley Cyrus' performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

There are a lot of people hating on Miley Cyrus right now because she bent over and touched her toes while grinding Robin Thicke's crotch during their brief duet at the MTV VMAs. I don't get the anger. We live in a free country. Miley has earned the right to do whatever she wants to do. If she wants take her clothes off on stage for her next publicity stunt, by all means let her.

I've got no problem with Miley showing the world how ignorant she is. For several months now, she's been harping about becoming more "urban." She thinks that means she has to emulate the worst of African-American stereotypes. Why else would Miley rub her coochie with a foam finger, stick her tongue out like a dog in heat, and show us her booty hole? That's what being "black" means to her.

Women of color in the music industry should be offended by Miley's behavior. Jill Scott, Eryka Badu, and Beyonce certainly don't put on performances like the one Cyrus put on last night. The only ones who come close are Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. But they are injecting their Caribbean sex appeal into their performances. That's a big difference from pretending your auditioning for the day shift at the Trap Lounge in North Miami like Miley is doing.

What's funny is that Miley is doing things that got me banned from performing at arenas and nightclubs across the country. Heck, I got barred from putting on shows in South Carolina simply for being in the same room where two naked women fondled each other.

Let's see if Miley gets banned in the U.S.A too. I bet she won't though.

TIGER WOODS apparently didn't get turned on from the BLACK GIRL thing either since 17 of 17 of tiger's mistresses where either WHITE WHITE, like his swedish WIFE, or trailer-trash WHITE so MILEYs appeal is beyond what any BLACK females can generate - for both WHITE and BLACK men

UNCLE LUKE you gotta stick with football and listen to everything NICK SABAN says and use COACH SABAN as your new model and image

MILEY is sensual and sexy and with wholesome DISNEY a previous seal of approval she instantly becomes a forbidden fruit about to be pierced - YOU were just an irritant to southern white people, and would have been no matter what you did, during a time black people were getting some coverage - in the media today no one would even notice you, other than the historic footnote that you rightly deserve, however, your fifteen minutes have long ago passed

But you paved the way for this sorta thing, Unc. I grew up listening to your music and got my ass WHOOPED by my mom on several occasions because of a few of your tracks. Isn't Miley now doing the same thing you did back then? Don't hate, Unc! Its all entertainment, and its up to the fans whether or not they support it.

But I have to admit that I think she should at least give you props for helping to make it possible for her to be as nasty as she wants to be. And she can definitely be nasty.

You had them butt booty naked. back in your day. Thank God, but Miley has thus far spared us that horror.

You got banned...25 years ago. Just in case the point I'm making isn't clear to you, it's been a quarter of a century ago since you were banned for the same behavior a young, white girl is engaging in today. You know what else? Gay marriage wasn't allowed in ANY state, gas cost less than a dollar a gallon, and gays were COMPLETELY banned from the United States military. Things change, Luke. [Please note the heavy sarcasm. You obviously just wanted to interject your no-longer-relevant self into the post]

How does the New Times publish you and still be able to respect itself in the morning?

I'm not a fan of miley nor do I particularly care about the incident but this is a flawed argument because it argues that he got banned in many nightclubs for this action, but then compares it to what miley did at the VMA's. There is no question that the behavior would get her banned, had it been the same venue. We cannot assume acceptance of her action and disapproval of yours because of different results that happened at different venues.

@Anthony, if you want to parse words that closely then you shouldn't be upset w/ those who do the same on the flip side of your argument. Because urban has been widely used to refer to people of color for many a year.and yes it had been used to imply race. Whether it should be used in that manner is a separate discussion and one in which we'd probably agree. But Luke's not out of the realm of rational thinking in interpreting her actions through the filter of race.

This is it??? This is your big article? C'mon puke! I look forward to your daily drivel every Tuesday. You post a day earlier and this is the best you have?!?!? Your posts get worse and worse. They sucked to begin with, but this is worthless.

Who gives a shit, the release of Star Wars Episode VII is inching closer and closer. Lets discuss something that actually matters.

I really think she wanted to embarrass her father as he embarrassed the family with his alleged affair. She wasn't twirking her unrehearsed moves like NM or RiRi more like a mental patient that just learned her moves from someone's grandma. It's got to be about Billy the first man she loved. It's the thing that has been bugging her for a long time now. Another sad casualty of daddy issues.

Luther Campbell criticizing others for mimicry and obscenity... Now that's funny.


He was sued successfully by his own 2 LiveCrew bandmates for royalties.

He was sued successfully by George Lucas for stealing  Skywalker in Skywalker Records.

One of his albums was determined by a Federal Court to be legally obscene.

He paid UM football players a bounty for violent hits.


Don't think Luther has to worry about Miley Cyrus stealing his nastiness title...LOL

Correct. Urban means "city/street-like" and does not imply race. Urban is a style that not just African Americans embrace, but people of all ethnicities. I know many African Americans who would be offended at the term being interchangeable with who they are. She said she wanted to be more urban, NOT African American, and should be regarded as such.

Lol come see Miley Cyrus perform live at CoCo's in north Miami.

He's criticizing her because she acting and behaving as she thinks female entertainers of color behave. And he's far from alone in his criticism. Many people MANY PEOPLE thought she was flat out wrong or just bad. She's the one who said she wanted to be more "urban". Luke didn't put those words in her mouth.

Miley parties in the USA; she doesn't get banned in the USA. LOVE YOU, LUKE! : )

Not defending, by any means, her distasteful performance. Just tired of the race card being played for everything, let alone in trivial irrelevant matters.

Um why is it always a race issue? Why is it that she's "emulating the worst of African Americans" and simply not just emulating trash? Trash transcends race. It's unfortunately found in each one and each culture. How she acted had nothing to do with African Americans and all to do with her class (or rather lack there of). And to answer your question Uncle Luke, she probably won't get banned because we are in different times today where society is a bit more accepting of sexual expression than they were in your musical era.

I love you Uncle Luke but you make no sense. How could you criticize her for the same type of entertainment you served up.

She is promoting hypersexulization to the youth. Also her bears are direct references to pedophilia. She is not an entertainer. She is a slave doing what is required of her in order to carry out a predetermined agenda of evil beyond the comprehension of most. Have a good day.

Another waste of 3 minutes of my life reading Lukes useless opinion articles...I don't know how I get sucked into these. Shes an entertainer, and this how she gets her hype.

Sometimes you have to look at the past to move forward. Luke's Supreme Court case is discussed in colleges and universities all over the United States. Believe it or not, he will always be relevant in the academic arena.
