Miley Cyrus‘ crotch-tastic performance with Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards is but a faint memory now that we’ve had a week and a long holiday weekend to scrub it from our brains. But Miley’s here to remind us all that we witnessed
history herstory. Speaking to a documentary crew, Cyrus essentially (and not surprisingly) gave the interview version of this.
“How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?” she asked rhetorically. “Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history… Me and Robin [Thicke,] the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now.’”
Cyrus continued, “What’s amazing is I think now, we’re three days later and people are still talking about it. They’re over thinking it. 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.”
So there you have it: Miley walking around in a latex bikini with a giant foam finger poking her own crotch and other people’s bits is just Miley being Miley (being Britney).
