On the pink carpet of the ceremony, Miami happily shared the inspiration behind it.



“I feel like with the VMAs you know it’s just rockstar—it’s the VMAs, you gotta come different!” Miami told Extra. “You gotta funk it up a little bit, you gotta step outta your element, outta your box.”

And while Miami was clearly pleased, the Internet swooped in with opinions with many calling the fashion “unflattering.”

As criticism mounted, Miami posted a photo with a caption playing off of her “Act Up” lyrics.

“Stripes on this p***y so he call me tiggerrr!!!” wrote Miami.

“Don’t let them get to you,” added another.
