Her performance, which transitioned into a duet with Robin Thicke singing another summer hit, “Blurred Lines,” garnered a lot of attention on social media for her provocative dance moves.
The VMAs eventually turned around with a performance from Justin Timberlake doing a mash-up of his own songs, and the long-awaited reunion with his band mates from '90s pop group 'N Sync.
One congressman, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), chimed in on Twitter.
If it were OK for me to tweet about Justin Timberlake and NSYNC, I'd be really excited to do it. #VMAs— Rep. Ted Deutch (@RepTedDeutch) August 26, 2013
Deutch’s tweet received nearly 300 retweets, and almost 200 favorites.
He appears to be the only member of Congress who tweeted about the awards show.
