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."
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?
