Miley Cyrus
is finally speaking out about her controversial performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards, and it’s clear that in her mind, she’s just being Miley.

In an interview with MTV News last week, the singer clearly has no plans to apologize. Instead, she explains that she got exactly what she wanted.

“How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?” she said. “Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.”

Though Miley expected some of the controversy, MTV notes that her performance set records, topping Beyonce’s Super Bowl record for most tweets per minute.

“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 said. “You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. I didn’t even think about it ‘cause that’s just me.”


The pop star previously alluded to the performance, tweeting what her father allegedly said to her:

Miley’s interview comes as part of her one-hour MTV documentary, which is set to air on the network later this fall, while her new album “Bangerz” is due out on October 4.
