Miley Cyrus Breaks Her Silence On Her Controversial MTV VMA Performance: “I Made History!”

Submitted by on September 4, 2013 – 10:30 amOne Comment

Miley Cyrus has a clear explanation for her controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards: She wasn’t thinking.

The 20-year-old “Twerk” singer made national headlines following her racy performance with Robin Thicke on August 25, which featured her love of the booty-shaking dance craze “Twerking,” a foam finger, and tongue wagging. In an new interview, Cyrus admits the whole performance was part of her master plan.

“Me and Robin [Thicke] the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,’” Cyrus says in a video clip recorded last week by MTV. “What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. They’re overthinking it. You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me.”

Miley also revealed that she’s not worried about the backlash or the possible harm her performance may inflict on her career. “I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?” she says. “Madonna‘s done it. Britney‘s done it. Every VMA performance…that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.”

Watch Miley explain her actions in the video below, which is part of a documentary recorded by the MTV and set to air this Fall. Miley’s performance definitely made history, but do you think it was for all of the wrong reasons?
