So many of us middle aged mothers saw Madonna’s half-time show at the Super Bowl

as empowering. There she was a 50 year old woman not just rocking her stuff but rocking

her woman owned enterprise and the life she had created for herself. So what was it 

about Miley Cyrus’ performance at the Video Music Awards that caused the very same 

women to issue a collective cringe. Watch it and decide. I know what it was for me but

would love to know what triggered that reaction in other Mothers.
