It seems like everyone is talking about Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance these days!

Totally ignoring the sexy outfit and dance moves, Hayley was stuck on the racial aspect of it all. Get the full story here! It seems like everyone is talking about Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance these days!

Not only did Kelly Osbourne and Kelly Clarkson talk about her freak show Sunday night but Paramore's Hayley Williams did too.

Totally ignoring Miley's sexy outfit and dance moves, Hayley was stuck on the racial aspect of the whole routine.

"It seems like more people are focusing on the trashiness or the dancing, the clothes. But I, actually, am uncomfortable with the racial aspect of it," Hayley told 98.7 Amp Radio during an interview.

"I feel like she's sort of taking a culture that isn't really hers and sort of using it as an accessory, and that actually bothers me more.... I feel like maybe someone needs to go to her and sort of explain the race issue."

The lead singer apparently wasn't feeling the fact that Miley's dancers were African Americans with big bootys...that she hit over and over.

"I do think it's a little insensitive, and it definitely seems as though there were black women onstage with her that...kinda felt like accessories. I felt uncomfortable about that."

You might think Hayley is salty because Miley's leaving her clean image behind and is entering into Hayley's "punk" lifestyle but that's not it. She admitted in the interview that she actually doesn't mind Miley's new look and thinks it's understandable.

"I think Miley's a 20-year-old girl who's going to try to experience new things for the first time, and that does include...wearing certain things that people aren't going to feel comfortable with. That part doesn't make me as uncomfortable."

Do you think Miley's VMAs performance was racially insensitive like Hayley said? Your thoughts on her comment?
