She’s no stranger to controversy, and it turns out Miley Cyrus' decision to give an overtly sexual showing at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards was a calculated move.

The “Hannah Montana” babe noted that her duet with Robin Thicke on his summer hit “Blurred Lines” was created to make history.

Miley explained, “I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?”

Cyrus continued, "Madonna's done it. Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, that's what you're looking for; you're wanting to make history."

"Me and Robin the whole time said, 'You know we're about to make history right now.' What's amazing is I think now, we're three days later and people are still talking about it. They're over thinking it. 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!"
