Even Miley Cyrus’ friends can’t stand behind what she did on Sunday at the VMAs, and they’re not shy about saying so. Especially if it’s their job to tear down celebrities.

Miley’s pal Kelly Osbourne, cohost of “Fashion Police,” couldn’t hide her dislike of her friend’s performance. “I look at the performance and yes, I do have a lot of the same (negative, horrified, mocking) opinions as you guys about it,” she said. “But we’re not talking about her performance, we’re talking about what she’s wearing…

“Miley’s my friend and I love her, and I have her back no matter what, but as her friend I’m going to tell her: Put your f—ing tongue in your mouth. I love you, but just put your tongue in your mouth.”

Ouch! Poor Miley. But of course, Kelly’s right, and she’s just doing what good friends do: giving some honest, tough advice from one friend to another via a national television show.

The 2013 MTV VMAs rolled into Brooklyn on Sunday night, bringing twerking teens, passive-aggressive behavior from Taylor Swift and a reunion more hotly anticipated than your high school’s 10-year.

Lady Gaga kicked off the night with a performance of her new single, “Applause,” Miley Cyrus scandalized pretty much everyone, and Macklemore raked in the Moonmen. Read Metro’s full recap for all the big moments.
