It's probably safe to say Kelly Clarkson was unimpressed by Miley Cyrus' performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. The three-time VMA winner didn't name any names but by the process of elimination, her latest tweet seems to tweak the 20-year-old twerker.

Who are these "pitchy strippers" she speaks of? Aside from the much-ballyhooed Cyrus, it's hard to say. By the time she donned a thong during her blazing opening performance, Lady Gaga was mostly singing live alongside a dominant backing track, and by all accounts she sounded good.

Who else in the world of music took issue with Miley's racy performance, which included assorted grinding of stuffed bears, foam fingers and a Robin Thicke?
