Miley: I Made VMA History Like Britney

Miley opens about her raunchy MTV VMA performance for the first time since it and the giant foam finger slapped viewers in the face, and mentions Britney in the process.

Her goal was to get people talking, not just a few days afterwards but for years.

“Me and Robin [Thicke,] the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,'” Miley tells MTV News.

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

The Parents Television Council blasted Miley for the overtly sexual references and moves throughout the performance, but Miley thinks they need to take a chill pill.

“What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. They’re over thinking it,” she says. “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn’t even think about it ’cause that’s just me.”
