Justin Timberlake says he was OK with Miley Cyrusraunchy, controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

“It’s the VMAs — what did you guys expect?” Timberlake told the “Jim & Kim” morning radio show on Tuesday.


He added, “I like Miley. I like her a lot… she’s young, she’s letting everyone know she’s growing up.”

“It’s the VMAs. It’s not like she did it at the Grammys,” continued Timberlake. “Let her do her thing.”

The night’s big winner then referenced the awards show’s long history of salacious moments, including past raciness from Madonna — and his own ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.
