Truth behind Will Smith's family looking shocked over Miley Cyrus' performance revealed

Melbourne, August 27 (ANI): The photo that showed Will Smith and his family shocked at Miley Cyrus, who was seen gyrating against singer Robin Thicke with a foam hand during her MTV VMA performance, may not be what it seemed like.

It turns out that the and his family weren't really in shock over the young startlet's raunchy performance but were watching Lady Gaga perform her song 'Applause' while chewing gum, News.com.au reported.

Twitter and Facebook erupted with hundreds of thousands of comments about the Smith family's open-mouthed reaction following Cyrus' controversial performance at yesterday's MTV Video Music Awards.

According to MTV, the Smiths simply liked what they saw when Gaga got up on stage. (ANI)
