Gene Simmons Rates Miley Cyrus' Tongue-Wagging Prowess
The KISS legend, who himself is known for having a long tongue, has weighed in on the We Can't Stop hitmaker's performance at the event last month.
Speaking to E! News, he said: "It was okay ... But that's a girl's version.
"It's like girls' basketball. It's as good as girls can get at basketball. But you can't play with the guys."
The outspoken musician defended her performance, which saw her dressed in a flesh-colored bra and panties as she gyrated against singer Robin Thicke - and insisted it's no different to how stars have behaved in the past.
He added: "Whether you stick out your tongue or shake your tushy, all the other girls are doing the same thing.
"Any girl whose name ends with an A - Madonna, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, all these girls who sing pop songs through backing tracks like it's karaoke and gyrate all over the stage - if they can do it, why can't Miley?
"Either condemn the whole lot of them or leave her alone."
