There is some backstage drama reportedly on-going between Miley Cyrus’ team for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. Her video director and manager were allegedly involved in a conflict as to what kind of stunt Cyrus will give on stage just before she performs during the event, Page Six reported.

With only a few hours ahead of the 2017 MTV VMAs, the singer’s music video director Diane Martel was overheard in a Los Angeles restaurant ranting about not having been able to come up with a performance filler for the pop star. Page Six said that she was lamenting how they would fill a short period of stage time Cyrus has been allotted before she performs her new single, “Younger Now.”

Staying at the Four Seasons Cabana Restaurant, this music video director allegedly wanted the female pop star to do some short acting stunts on stage.

She also wanted a “puppet orgy,” wherein a puppet would sniff Cyrus’ sensitive body parts. This will follow a joke about how to keep everything clean “down there.”

Martel was heard in an argument with Adam Leber, the manager of the “Younger Now” singer. Instead, Leber reportedly wanted to use the given time to talk about President Donald Trump, and in turn, make headlines the next day, Page Six added.

Unable to arrive at a decision, the former was heard calling the latter, “stupid manager.” Martel has directed videos for other pop artists, such as Justin Timberlake and Beyonce.

No backstage drama

The website reached out to Cyrus’ manager for more details about the alleged backstage drama. He responded and told the media that there are no such thing as this, but pure excitement.

Miley Cyrus is slated to perform her new single, “Younger Now” at The Forum in Inglewood, California during the 2017 MTV VMAs. The manager said that the performance will be “sunrising and emotional,” citing that the song itself is very nice, contemplative and self-written.

In the end, source revealed that the final decision will still depend upon the female pop singer.

This year’s MTV VMAs will air live on August 27, Sunday.

What to expect

The widely watched musical awards show on TV is getting bigger each year. The 36th annual event just removed the gender-specific categories such as “Male Artist” and “Female Artist.” They replaced them with a more general “Artist of the Year” category, ABC News reported.

Kendrick Lamar is leading the nomination table, with eight nods. Other major nominees include The Weeknd and Ariana Grande. Katy Perry, who just unveiled another single from her new album, is slated to host the show.
