A picture is worth a thousand words, ay? Will Smith and his famous kids Jaden and Willow were caught by an audience cam watching Lady Gaga's typically outre performance at the Sunday, Aug. 25 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, NY. The 44-year-old father and Jaden, 15, cringed, as Willow, 12, also looked confused during Gaga's multiple costume changes (including a square hood) for her "Applause" show opener inside the Barclays Center.
It was at first widely reported and assumed that the famous trio were reacting to 20-year-old Miley Cyrus' super-raunchy set with Robin Thicke
As Us Weekly exclusively reported in advance of the big show, Cyrus, 20, and the R&B singer took the stage together for an unexpected collaboration. The former Disney star wore a furry teddy bear leotard, gyrated, twerked, wagged her tongue and stripped down to a nude-colored two-piece for major shock value.
Cyrus was nominated for Best Song of the Summer, Best Female Video, Best Editing and Best Pop Video for her "We Can't Stop" single, but didn't end up taking home a Moonman. Indeed, the star left the proceedings before they were over. "Leaving the VMAs. No it's not over. I'm no psychic but congrats @onedirection #songofthesummer," she wrote via Twitter.
