Miley Cyrus Responds to VMA Controversy with Racy Pics, Self-Congratulatory Tweet

by at .  Updated at .

She can't be tamed. Nor can she be made to apologize.

In light of her controversial appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night - which included Twerking, graphic foam finger waving and simulated stuffed bear humping - Miley Cyrus isn't focusing on the negative responses across the Internet.

She's simply focusing on the fact that there were responses.

"Smilers! My VMA performance had 306,000 tweets per minute," Cyrus wrote yesterday, including with the message a couple new, racy images (above).

"That's more than the blackout or Superbowl! #fact."

It's true.

As Brooke Shields said - along with referring to Cyrus as desperate - the entire entertainment world is talking about Miley, so if her goal was mere attention... she accomplished it.

But will the backlash negatively affect the aritst's career in the long run? Did she go too far in her attempt to simply generate headlines?

What did YOU think of Miley's VMA performance?
