(Newser) – Miley Cyrus and her tongue showed up at Saturday Night Live last night, with the former blessedly declaring "There will be no twerking tonight," before going on to a solid, if relatively uncontroversial, showing. While her turns as a high school cheerleader and would-be rapper fell short, observes Gwynne Watkins for Rolling Stone, "whenever she was asked to play herself, she was hilarious. Clearly, Miley Cyrus is her own best character." Cyrus spoofed herself in "Backstage at the VMAs," and teamed with Taran Killam to lampoon John Boehner, Michele Bachmann, and the government shutdown in "We Did Stop."

Miley is boring, maybe they will create a doll - pull the string and its tongue will hang out. Everyone is going after her dad when it's Miley's mother that is encouraging all this. Lindsey Lohens mom was criticized all the time for the way Lindsey was acting. If you want to mess with a man's mind - hurt his daughter or upset his wife. I think they keep going after dad because they are messing with him. Miley obviously hates her life and her mother is no different than Lohens mom.

Brain damage at it's finest.

The sad thing for me is that I actually like her singing skills. Too bad she is the person she is in public.
