Miley Cyrus clearly has no regrets.
The pop superstar hasn’t said much regarding her twerk-tastic VMA performance with Robin Thicke — with the exception of a few tweets. Miley sat down with MTV and responded to her critics, saying:
'They’re over thinking it,' Cyrus said of her critics, including the Parents Television Council, whose advisory board includes the singer’s father. '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.'
Miley also went on to say:
'I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?' she asked. 'Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.'
In fact, the singer revealed that she and Robin Thicke knew exactly what they were doing.
'Me and Robin [Thicke,] the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now.''
Miley is right about one thing, the VMA's are known to be unpredictable and have given us some of the raunchiest moments in TV history including the Madonna/Britney/Christina kiss. However, while all these moments were memorable, they also came off as incredibly desperate and left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.
