Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke's Mom Defend Miley Cyrus

Amidst the backlash over Miley Cyrus's racy VMA performance, Justin Timberlake and others are coming to her defense. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.

It was bedtime for Miley Cyrus as the pop star was just photographed wearing P.J.'s and slippers before boarding a private jet in New Jersey.

The monster-themed pajamas are a far cry from the nude colored bikini she wore during her controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake is expressing support for Miley in a new radio interview.  

Timberlake said, "Listen, man, you know, it's the VMAs. What did you guys expect? I like Miley. I like her a lot. I think, you know, she's young. She's letting everyone know that she's growing up. It's not like she did it at the Grammys. Let her do her thing."

Miley's jaw-dropping performance happened during a duet of "Blurred Lines" with singer Robin Thicke. The song and its super sexy video, has had it's own fair share of controversy.

Now, Robin Thicke's mom, actress Gloria Loring, is speaking out. 

Loring told INSIDE EDITION, "The song is so infectious. What I loved about it is that it's Robin's sense of humor. That all the girls are kind of going, 'Oh, whatever.' And the guys are going, 'Hey hey hey!' "

Loring, best known for Days Of Our Lives has a new book out called Coincidence Is God's Way Of Remaining Anonymous.

"As more and more coicindences came into my life, I started to see this pattern of goodness," said Loring.

Miley has helped the booty-shaking "twerking dance craze" become a pop culture phenomenon.

Vanessa Hudgens did it on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Jennifer Lopez twerked with Pit Bull at the American Music Awards.

Even pop princess, Taylor Swift twerked in her music video for "22."

One Direction's Harry Styles' attempted at twerking during the Teen Choice Awards.

But, Beyonce probably twerked it best, during her half-time at the Super Bowl. At least she didn't cause a national uproar like Miley.

And Britain's Oxford Dictionary has now officially entered the word "twerk," as a verb, meaning: "To dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."
