NEW YORK — Miley Cyrus says in an interview clip that she doesn’t listen to the negative comments around her performance on the MTV Video Music Awards.

The pop star says she felt she and Robin Thicke were making history with the risque performance of their hits “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines.”

The comments were Cyrus’ first since the Aug. 25 show. The clip was recorded last week and posted Tuesday on MTV’s website.

Cyrus compares the performance to that of Madonna and Britney Spears, who once kissed on air.

Cyrus says she is surprised people were still talking about it three days later: “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.”

    Miley you whore! -_- And your planning to get married pah? What does your future husband think of how you act around other men?

    Let the girl express her sexuality. So what if it was risque? She is an artist. She can never remain as Hannah Montana forever, at least she is not stagnating. Some artists do more “lewd acts”. We are just appalled because we got used to seeing her as the goody two shoe teen star that we adored from way back. Give the girl some slack. I think the whole shebang was just a nod to Madonna.

    Does she still have her chastity ring?
