Pop music star Miley Cyrus recently set the nation abuzz with her performance at the MTV music video awards. Apparently the country was aghast to see a scantily clad Millennial thrusting her hips sexually, as if that were a big deal.
The cover of this week’s People magazine includes a picture of Cyrus with her tongue sticking out and the headline: “Miley’s Mayhem: Taking Things Too Far?”
It’s clear from the reaction that average folks have not kept up with the news coming out of college campuses nowadays, because Cyrus’ hip thrusts pale in comparison to today’s university-based antics.
In the last school year alone there’s a parade of examples on which The College Fix has reported that makes Cyrus’ act look like a kiddie-ride at Disneyland:
