Immediately following Miley Cyrus’ VMA appearance, several people decided that the world needed to know his or her opinion of this performance. A lot of people said the same thing over and over again. It wasn’t anything new, but everyone definitely had an opinion one way or another. “Put some clothes on!” “Gross!” “Ewww!” These are most of the comments out there on Twitter and Facebook at the moment.
I love Miley Cyrus. I think she teaches us a lot through her actions…meaning what not to do. Welcome to “Blitz Inc Reviews Business Lessons From Miley Cyrus.”

1. Don’t show your @$$ in front of your coworkers or customers.
Miley Cyrus reminds us that although in the entertainment industry, any press may be good press, but in business this isn’t the case. You will likely lose support from your staff, customers, and colleagues if you bring your dirty laundry to work, try to be the ‘cool guy’ at work, or – much like Miley here – show your @$$ in front of them. Always maintain your professionalism around the people you work with.
Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus didn’t quite understand the scope of her actions as she was teaching us this lesson.
2. To be innovative, you may just have to go back to basics.
Thank you Miley Cyrus for trying out a look that Jim Carrey already broke out over a decade ago. While he may not look as good in the same hairdo, he reminds us that most ideas have already been created. Usually when our businesses aren’t getting a great result, we tend to complicate things even more. To succeed in business, keep things simple and go back to the basics.
Good job Miley! She nailed this lesson of going back to basics, but she may have focused on the wrong ‘basics.’
3. Always represent your company as if it were your family’s.
Miley Cyrus comes from a good-hearted country-music loving family. Although she may have turned a corner as of recent, she’s still representing her family’s brand, right? I’m sure the Cyrus family is very proud of her musical talents, but maybe not her portrayal of them. In business, representing your company as if it were your own or your family’s company is the key to integrity and long-lasting relationships and word of mouth references.
The Miley Cyrus VMA performance might show otherwise, but hey, she’s in the entertainment industry – so all bets are off, I suppose.
4. Less is not always MORE.
The theory that less is more is not always the case. Miley Cyrus stripped down the necessities to show all of the moving parts of the engine – so to speak. While this may work to a certain degree, it is always best to talk about big picture ideas with your staff. They should know why their job matters.
I’m not sure what Miley was trying to convey in the recent Video Music Awards on MTV recently. Apparently the ideas weren’t very complex, so if she was trying to keep it simple and strip everything down to the basics, mission accomplished.
5. More is not always welcome.
Taylor Swift is either puking or just averting her eyes at this moment of the VMA’s. She’s a girl. She understands the complexities of the systems and what women can do. In other words, she gets it. Enough already. In business, its important to know your audience when presenting information. Don’t keep droning on and on about a topic, solution, product, sales point, etc. if they understand it. In this case more information will do you more harm than good.
Miley Cyrus didn’t do her female fans any favors with her performance, but some of her fans, including Will Smith from what I understand, enjoyed her ‘droning.’
6. When doing a cool pose for photos, make sure your pose is, in fact, cool.
Do I need to explain?
