“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).
