Miley Cyrus‘ MTV Video Music Award performance was the most talked about topic in entertainment last week. After twerking all over the stage and on Robin Thicke, Cyrus sent mainstream America into a rage for what was seen as an “overly sexual” display.
Since the show, Miley has been ignoring the media and continuing her “twerk” campaign, releasing a song titled, “Twerk” with her fellow pop star Justin Bieber. Miley has finally broken her silence in a short interview clip from MTV, and she thinks views and fans are overthinking her performance, saying:
“What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. They’re overthinking 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.”
However she did think that her act would be a big deal because she wanted to make history. What’s also interesting is for all the backlash she’s been receiving for dancing on a married man, in the interview Miley infers that Thicke knew exactly what would be taking place.
“Me and Robin [Thicke], the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,'” she said.
Miley also echoed the sentiments of many observers, reminding them it was the MTV VMAs, where there have been many other provocative performances from artists like Britney Spears and Madonna.
So why is mainstream America overreacting to Miley Cyrus? Check out the real reason here.
