When it comes to conveying sexual innuendo, our favorite modern day artists sure have a knack for thinking outside the box. Pun intended. Singers like Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have made the least sexy scenarios imaginable ooze sex. And until Miley Cyrus experienced her sexual awakening, our naive souls actual thought a wrecking ball was just used for construction work. How wrong we were…

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards continued a trend that Miley Cyrus tongue-thrusted into mainstream culture during last year’s show: Twerking. The latest pop diva to twerk it out is Nicki Minaj, who mystified us with her ah-mazing derrière last night while performing her new hit “Anaconda.” So which one of these fierce ladies twerked it so hard that all others should just retire and never dip it low again? We’ve broken down the stats, and the results may surprise you.
Tomorrow’s MTV Video Music Awards will feature 2014’s hottest performances. However, if history has taught us anything, it’s that artists can bring down the house while making egregious fashion fails. Miley Cyrus twerked her way toward infamy last year, yet her forgettable ensemble looked like it came from a retailer’s discount bin. In the `90s, Marilyn Manson disturbed us with leather and mesh, while Paula Abdul doubled down on using rhinestones.
With the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards just days away, we are nearly one year away from twerk seen around the world. During a night filled with show-stopping performances, it was Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke — not Lady Gaga or the *N SYNC reunion — that stole the night.
“Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, anyone that performs, that’s what you’re looking for — you’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,’ ” Cyrus told MTV just days after the show. With her tongue hanging out, she did just that. That evening, she became the most tweeted about person and set a new record at the time for most views of Vevo for “Wrecking Ball” in a 24-hour period.
So what exactly happened during and after the VMA performance? We break down Cyrus’ historic show by the numbers.
