Miley Cyrus claims she wanted to "make history" at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn.

The singer has spoken for the first time since her much-talked about performance at the show in August.

She attracted attention from the media after she wore a latex bra and pants, regularly sticking her tongue out and "twerking".

Miley Cyrus said: "I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times."

The 20-year-old was speaking to a crew who are filming the singer for an MTV documentary.

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

The performance split the opinion of audiences with critics and supporters voicing their opinions about the singer online.

In the clip released to MTV, she said: "What's amazing is I think now, 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. I didn't even think about it 'cause that's just me."

As well as performing with Robin Thicke on his hit Blurred Lines, Cyrus performed her own song We Can't Stop.
