Miley Cyrus rules out MTV VMA performance

Afterward, Miley made it known that she wasn't happy about her lack of presence at the show.

The nominations for the annual VMAs were announced earlier this week and, much to the dismay of her fans, Miley Cyrus-and Ashley O⁠-didn't nab a single nod.

And the 26-year-old singer - who is married to Liam Hemsworth - agreed with a fan who criticised the network for using Miley's pictures "to promote their damn prizes".

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande lead the VMA nominations this year with 10 each, while Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, is up for eight thanks to his collaboration with Lil Nas X on "Old Town Road".

Epstein says finances too complex to summarize
Prosecutor Alex Rossmiller argued that given his wealth, Epstein poses an "extraordinary risk of flight". Epstein also made a $1,000 donation to the Wexner Center for the Arts Membership Fund in 1990.

As most fans know, the pop star has a complicated and controversial history with the awards show. Unfortunately for Miley, she was not among those final few artists who now face a voting block made up of MTV viewers.

Okay, this comment could mean one of two things: Either there's no effing way she's performing or she just can't believe that someone would boycott the VMAs because she's not there. It was an extremely heated moment. Or when she and Nicki Minaj nearly got into a fight when she hosted in 2015?

Then there is her infamous performance at the 2013 awards with Robin Thicke. In two Instagram pics she posted on July 26, her two-piece consisted of a strapless lavender bandeau top and white bottoms that showed off her yoga toned body, including her flat tummy and long legs. Miley responded in the comments with, "No f**king way" that she'll be taking the stage. Cyrus was in the midst of her wild and insane phase, which was evident when the two performed 'Blurred Lines.' It is still one of the most awkward performances in the history of the VMAs.

The VMAs will be hosted by Sebastian Maniscalco and will air live from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
