Although most of the world has already moved on, Miley Cyrus is still talking about her performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards last month.
In the upcoming documentary Miley Cyrus: The Movement, the controversial singer takes a few moments to explain what she was doing at the awards show. According to her, the Robin Thicke twerking fiasco was a “strategic hot mess.” In other words, the girl knows precisely what she’s doing.
Miley Cyrus discusses what she was trying to accomplish with her performance at the VMAs. Since the awards show is a venue for artists to “push the boundaries,” the former Hannah Montana star tried to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and Britney Spears.
“That’s what you’re looking to do, make history. I felt like I could finally be the bad b**** I really am,” Cyrus explains during the documentary.
She continued, “I’m coming out in pigtails, looking like a raunchy adult baby — that’s obviously funny. If I was trying to be sexy, I wouldn’t have come out dressed as a bear. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?”
Bangerz collaborator Pharrell offered up the best explanation of the singer’s crazy behavior. According to the producer, Miley Cyrus is the product of her culture. If she was acting any differently, then she wouldn’t be herself.
“Her dad is Billy Ray Cyrus, her godmother is Dolly Parton, and she grew up in the era when kids listen to hip-hop. People ask, ‘Why is she twerking? Why is she doing this?’ Because she’s a product of America,” he explains at one point during the documentary.
Fans of Miley Cyrus should seriously consider clearing their schedule for The Movement later this week. The documentary airs on MTV this Wednesday at 10 pm. Do you think people are still making too much noise about her VMAs performance?
