For the first time since that controversial MTV Video Music Awards performance, Miley Cyrus has spoken out!

Miley claims that she was simply following in the footsteps of pop icons like Madonna and Britney Spears and her performance of ‘We Can’t Stop’ and ‘Blurred Lines’ with Robin Thick was supposed to “make history”.

In an interview with MTV, Miley said that being controversial is part of being a star.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times in pop music. Madonna's done it, Britney's done it, any VMA performance, you know anyone who performs that's what you're looking for. You're wanting to make history."

Miley also noted that she was totally aware of how much attention the performance would receive saying: "Me and Robin always said 'you know we're about to make history right now?'"

"What's amazing is now we're three day later and people are still talking about it."

However, she also claimed that she didn’t mean to cause such an uproar.

Really Miley?

Instead, she thinks fans are "overthinking it" and that "you're thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. I didn't even think about it because that’s just me."
