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?

What I meant was any stupid hype was better than none.

No...what she did was prove that you can be an unoriginal, uninspired, watered down copy cat hack and still get praise in america. Because any stiPod hype is better than zero hype.
