Idolator recently posted an article about the “10 videos that were rudely snubbed by the 2020 VMAs”. Featured in their list was the video for Mother’s Daughter by Miley Cyrus. Check out what they said below!
Everything that I said for “Harleys In Hawaii” applies here [‘one of the most underrated pop songs in recent memory’ and ‘capturing the mood of a song visually is an art unto itself’] (when are Smilers getting justice for this anthem?). However, the omission of “Mother’s Daughter” is even more alarming because Miley’s mini-masterpiece is actually important thanks to its racial diversity, queer representation and unblinking body positivity. Surely this is the exact kind of messaging that the VMAs should get behind?
