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.

Miley and Robin

"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?


Rank ho's skanking it up on MTV isn't history. Nobody will know who Miley Cyrus is down the road, she certainly won't be thought of as a history maker. As she says herself in her own quote: "Madonna‘s done it. Britney‘s done it." That's not making history, that's just following the skank train. She certainly does remind me of Madonna though, all pathetic and grasping for attention. She'll be in her 60's making people puke as she still grinds up against young guys on stage. Close your friggin mouth too Miley and suck in your nasty huge tongue. You're attracting flies with that thing sticking out all the time.


Always in your underwear, dancing provocatively, and acting like a ho works very well for Gaga, so Miley is trying her hand at it.

@ Spare+me

While that might be Lady Gaga's signature, Lady Gaga didn't start out as an idol for young impressionable girls. She began her career aiming at a general audience, knowing her music would ruffle feathers and probably be censored. Miley started as a child idol and many younger girls still follow her because they've grown up with her, and now they're seeing that it's alright to act that way because she's doing it. I'm not saying she can't develop her music and style, but she needs to keep in mind that SHE wanted stardom as a kid, and with childhood fame comes a certain fanbase she asked for that needs to live with and up to.


At the end of the day, she's still making more money than us and living the life carefree. Say what you want, it doesn't matter jack shit to her.


Miley you are unbeliveable.eeeuuuuuuu


She's a sick, sick ho!


I will love to shoot a load in her mouth.


What a better opportunity than this for America to teach the youth a life lesson.

@ Sims

What lesson would that be?.....that as long as you're born beautiful with a dogs turd worth of talent, that even they can make it in hollyweird. Ok, I'm sold LOL!

@ Kimberly

Lesson would be- don't ever assume that the PUBLIC will support you no matter what. She seems to assume that she can do whatever she wants and her fans will still be there. Maybe?

@ Sins

@Kim- ill take your word for it.

@ Sins

Everything has an expiration date, especially hollywood careers....I know that she'll be over and done with as soon as she trainwrecks outta control to. the point where she'll have to make a public mea culpa and do several hundred hours of community service...and even still, that may not be enough because she's about as cray as a bag of squirrels!


you really think that, miley? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!


Nice to know she's still in denial.


You acted like a pig in front of young children. Liam, is this who you want to be the mother of your children? They are not positive comments Miss. Miley....smoke some more weed.

@ dee

Dee, you do realize that young children should not be watching the VMAs, right? Her performance wasn't meant for the eyes of children who used to watch her when she was Hannah Montana.

@ TheMcDaniel

Exactly.I believe there is also a warning before each segment that warns viewers that this is a Live awards show & that Anything could happen.One can't help but wonder if Miley had been boring,
would anyone still be freaking about GaGa socializing in the front row with her bare butt on display?
