Miley Cyrus' Ex, Nick Jonas, Talks Her VMA Performance & Twerking

Nick Jonas

It’s been years since Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus dated, but the duo still run in the same circles every once in awhile. And, just like virtually every other musician out there, Nick was recently asked to comment on the “We Can’t Stop” singer’s controversial VMAs performance — and he had nothing but great things to say.

“She’s smart,” Nick said.. “She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her. She’ll always be successful. [The performance] was funny — I was laughing.”

However, he did contradict himself later in the interview, when asked about the current “twerking” phase, which was an integral part of Miley’s performance. “I’m against it. I’ve just reached my limit. It’s just done. It’s too much,” he revealed.

Nick’s older brother, Joe Jonas, also had a thing or two to say about Miley’s performance, although he wasn’t quite as positive. “It wasn’t my favorite performance of hers,” he admitted. “I think there’s one way of saying you’ve grown up, and there’s another way — I think that’s her way. Look, people are talking about it…so I think it’s working for what she wants.”

While Miley’s album Bangerz goes on sale Oct. 8, her former fellow Disney stars will head out on tour later that week.
