One week after she twerked and grinded all over Robin Thicke during their VMA performance, Miley Cyrus is finally addressing the spectacle.
In an interview with MTV News, the 20 year old shares her thoughts on the backlash she’s received since the Aug. 25 awards show in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Miley Cyrus Tweets Bizarre Billy Ray Comment About VMA Performance
“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 says. “You know now. You know what’s happened. Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it.”
She adds, “You’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time said, you know we’re about to make history right now.”
Despite saying she doesn’t “pay attention to the negative,” Miley is aware what people are saying.

“People are still talking about it. They’re overthinking it,” says the “We Can’t Stop” songstress, who’s currently engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth. “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like I didn’t think about it because that’s just me.”
In the much-discussed performance, a sexually charged Miley hit the stage wearing a teddy bear leotard. After twerking with dancers dressed as bears, she stripped down to a nude bikini. Robin came out to perform “Blurred Lines” and Miley proceeded to dirty dance with the 36-year-old married man. She also used a foam finger in a few inappropriate ways and stuck her tongue out.
Since then, the racy songstress has been keeping busy in the studio.

Over the weekend, Notion magazine revealed their new issue with the former Disney darling on the cover. In the accompanying interview, Miley advises kids not to follow in her acting footsteps.
“People don't realize but with so many responsibilities you hold an entire company on your back and you're a kid so you're supposed to f— up, then when you do, it's the head of the company that ends up getting letters from a thousand different people and that all comes down on him which then comes down on me,” she said. “I don't think any kid should be responsible for their personal life representing a company as big as that."
