Miley Cyrus on VMA Performance: We Made History!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

For the first time since shocking the world via foam finger, nude-colored underwear and a whole lot of Twerking, Miley Cyrus has spoken out on her MTV Video Music Awards performance.

Having already Tweeted a self-congratulatory note about the response on social media, Cyrus confirmed to MTV that she wasn't aiming to impress last Sunday ... but merely to be remembered.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times," said the singer, explaining that she and Robin Thicke continually remarked that they were set to make "history."

She added, "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?"

According to Miley, “Madonna‘s done it. Britney‘s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history."

And that she has certainly accomplished, although previous acts weren't accused of racism and/or of supporting date rape.

But Cyrus is untamed and undeterred.

"What's amazing is I think now, we're three days later and people are still talking about it," she told MTV. "They're overthinking it."

Might that be possible? Considering CNN held a panel discussion analyzing the routine? Watch excerpts from the interview above and respond:

Are we overreacting to Miley's performance?


Really out of everything that's happening in the world this is what people care about!!!! Wow. How stupid.


Singers and actors don't make history...they're all too light weight for that accolade...they just sing and act...for a time ...and then they are forgotten...


I think was cool she look happy ?


Woah...there's a war going on in Syria, orchestrated by big bankers, disinformation circulating (as usual) and hidden agendas. This is the biggest load of trivial bullshit I have ever seen. Frankly, who gives two shits? If you like mind-numbing pop music like that then enjoy it...but making it the extension of everything you know is very very sad - wake up to the world.


she said she aimed at making history and history is never forgotten so if she not ashamed of what she did then she should allow people to talk about it but if she is guilty then she should apologize for her actions


This is terrible ! How shameful!!!!


This is terrible ! How shameful!!!!


She is trash and the worst and dumbest "singer, pop star, person" in the media


No you didn't make History, Miley. There's plenty of other trash out there.


Even for name why is she losing her character is something i dont know some people are saying that selena is classy which i didnt like because miley is also classy before just for one performance like that they are hating her but people should think that she is brave to do that on stage.
