Entertainment behind the scenes
Back in the 1940s and the “Casablanca” era, a kiss was famously “just a kiss”
Not any more.
It’s been seven years since Britney Spears and Madonna notoriously locked lips in a live MTV Music Video Awards show. But women kissing women (or just pretending to) is still making front page news, whether it’s Miley Cyrus on a “Britain’s Got Talent” performance last week, or Sandra Bullock at the MTV Movie Awards show this weekend.
(And let’s not even revisit the Adam Lambert male-on-male kiss furor last November)
But while Bullock’s apparently rehearsed smooch with Scarlett Johansson was mostly seen as just good fun, Miley Cyrus’ kiss (that she now protests wasn’t really a kiss although it may have looked like it) with a female dancer has not gone down so well, especially with fans of the Disney teen star.
