In an exclusive interview with MTV, the 20-year-old former Disney star revealed that she and Robin Thicke did the raunchy performance to make history. She compared herself to Madonna and Britney Spears who also made headlines when they locked lips during a passionate on air kiss 10 years ago at the 2003 VMAs.
Speaking to MTV News in an exclusive interview, Miley said:
'I don't pay attention to the negative because I have seen this play out. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?
You know now... you know what's happened. Madonna's done it, Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, anyone that performs...that's what you are looking for. You wanting to make history. Me and Robin the whole time said You know you are about to make history right now?' It is an amazing thing that I think now it is three days later and people are still talking about it.
'They're over thinking it. You're thinking more about it than when I did it. Like I didn't even think about it because that is just me'.
