gloria-loring-robin-thicke-miley-cyrus-VMAs.jpg Miley Cyrus’ MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke was apparently kind of traumatic for almost everyone who has seen it, including Robin’s mom.

OMG! Insider sat down with Gloria Loring to watch a clip of the performance. Her reaction was rather priceless.

“The problem is now I can never ‘unsee’ it,” says Gloria. Welcome to the club, lady.

“I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this,” she continues. “Oh, Lord, have mercy. … I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son.”

But as any good mom would be, she’s still proud of her baby.

“Him? Loved it. I love that suit, the black and white suit,” says Gloria. “I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I just don’t understand. I
think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I
think it was not beneficial.”

Loring and Robin’s famous father, actor Alan Thicke, were married for 13 years in the 1970s and ’80s. They are mom and dad to both Robin and his older brother, Brennan.
