“I don’t pay attention to the negative,” Cyrus said in an interview with MTV. “How many times have you seen this play out in pop music?”
“You know now — you know what happens. Madonna’s done it, Britney [Spears'] has done it … anyone that performs, 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.’”
After everyone weighed in on the performance, and even after “twerk” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary, Cyrus thinks people are just over-thinking it.
“They’re over-thinking it,” Cyrus added. “You’re thinking about it way more than I thought about it when I did it. I didn’t even think about it, ’cause that’s just me.”
Cyrus fourth LP Bangerz is out October 4 via RCA records.
