Miley Cyrus is finally speaking out following her jaw-dropping, MTV VMAs performance with Robin Thicke. Take a peek at what she had to say about the backlash. The backlash behind Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards performance isn't phasing her.

In her first interview since her jaw-dropping routine, the "We Can't Stop" crooner spoke out about why she turned her "Blurred Lines" duet with Robin Thicke into a (foam) finger-fondling Twerk fest.

"Me and Robin [Thicke,] the whole time said, 'You know we're about to make history right now," she told MTV.

And it looks like they did.

According to NBC News, Miley holds the title of the most tweeted about MTV VMAs performance to date, racking up 4.5 million (!) mentions in tweets sent out during the ET airing of the show.

And that wasn't all.

The Queen of Twerk's name seemed to be on the lips of just about everyone following the wild performance, with celebs from the likes of One Direction to Kelly Clarkson giving their takes on the former Hannah Montana star shedding the last bit of her good girl image.

"What's amazing is I think now, we're three days later and people are still talking about it. They're over thinking it," she continued. "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."

Miley said she's been focusing on the positive aspects of the performance, as indicated by her recent retweets from Rolling Stone and others.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times," she continued, adding, "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna's done it. Britney [Spears]'s done it. Every VMA performance, that's what you're looking for; you're wanting to make history."
