Miley speaks

She got a lot of heat about that beyond edgy performance alongside Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs in August. But in her new MTV documentary Miley: The Movement, the girl formerly known as Hannah Montana hints that she may have been in on the joke.

In the documentary, which premieres 10 p.m. on MTV Wednesday, the We Can’t Stop singer, 20, talks about the backlash: “You’re always going to make people talk, you might as well make them talk for two weeks, rather than two seconds.”

“I was born to become who I am right now,” says the onesie queen. “Right now in my career I can be exacfly who I want to be... I’m starting as a

new artist now.”

Cyrus, partaking in this film to promote the

album Bangerz, out Oct. 8, admits she was very

nervous before the twerk-heavy VMA appear-

ance but that didn’t stop her antics: “You want to

make history. ... Everything’s about what’s going

to be the big moment in pop culture.”
