Miley Cyrus ‘Didn’t Even Think About’ Her VMAs Performance

Miley Cyrus performs during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center on August 25, 2013 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

Miley Cyrus says she has not paid attention to any of the reactions to her wildly controversial VMAs performance. "I've seen this play out so many times," she tells MTV in a newly released interview conducted a few days after the show. "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?" Many times, Miley. Many, many times. Cyrus says she was participating in the VMAs' legacy of attention-grabbing performances, citing Madonna and Britney Spears, and that she's glad people are still abuzz. "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." Well, that should put these discussions to rest.
