Miley Cyrus caused an uproar after her twerk-filled MTV Video Music Awards performance, and now Vogue editor Anna Wintour reportedly will not proceed with plans to put the 20-year-old on the cover this coming December.

Her performance during last month's awards show created controversy after viewers found her suggestive dancing and provocative props over the top for the former Disney teen star.

"Anna found the whole thing distasteful," a source close to the situation is quoted saying by The Wall. "She decided, based on Miley's performance, to take the cover in a different direction."

Cyrus may have rose to fame as a child star as the Disney Channel character Hannah Montana, but she has switched creative gears in music. Cyrus' recent song "We Can't Stop" is not a children's anthem by any means, but an ode to partying complete with drug references.

However, Cyrus' MTV VMA performance shocked spectators so much that a number of people felt compelled to pray for the singer. During the performance, she stripped down to a nude bikini while gyrating on married R&B singer Robin Thicke, 36.

Cyrus has been public in the past about being baptized in 2005 and wore a purity ring in 2008. Although the singer speaks far less about her Christian values these days, many music fans are still offering to pray for the singer.

"Honestly my heart breaks for Miley Cyrus," one person tweeted after her VMA performance. "She is so far from God in a world that keeps pushing her farther and farther away. Pray for her."

Another person said their parents were concerned for the budding singer after watching the performance.

"Just watched this Miley Cyrus thing with my parents and my ma goes 'that's really unfortunate what happened to that girl, I'll pray for her,'" the person tweeted.
