Pop singer Miley Cyrus gave an eye-popping performance Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The provocative pop singer was the hot topic at Sunday night's show: Cyrus eclipsed Lady Gaga's opening performance of her new single, Katy Perry's closing rendition of her latest hit and Kanye West's artsy set. The 20-year-old even grabbed more attention than Justin Timberlake's performance with his 'N Sync band mates.

Cyrus twerked and gyrated, stripped and swayed. She sang, too.

She had a helper at the VMAs: Robin Thicke. After performing her edgy hit, "We Can't Stop," she stripped off her outfit to reveal a nude bikini. She sang the first verse of Thicke's "Blurred Lines," then grinded on the R&B singer and made suggestive moves with a foam hand. The wild child also slapped a girl's butt onstage.

It was an eye-popping performance, much like the party she's having in her music video for "We Can't Stop," one of the most popular on YouTube.

"Amazing. I thought it was awesome," fellow former child star Selena Gomez said backstage of Cyrus' performance. "I love Robin Thicke, too, so I like that they collab'd."

Twitter said early Monday that Cyrus was mentioned 4.5 million times on the social network site, ahead of Timberlake's 2.9 million mentions.

Cyrus and Thicke's performance led in tweets per minute peaks with 306,100.

Kate Gosselin sues ex-hubby over book

PHILADELPHIA — Former reality TV star Kate Gosselin filed a lawsuit Monday accusing her ex-husband of stealing her hard drive and hacking into her phone and computer to get material for a tell-all book.

Jon Gosselin accessed email, bank accounts and other private information for a book called "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World," according to the federal lawsuit.

The 2012 book was written by Jon Gosselin's friend and business partner, tabloid writer Robert Hoffman, but pulled from the market after two days because the information had been illegally obtained, the lawsuit said.
