Los Angeles: Singer-actress Miley Cyrus has admitted that she knew her MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke would make history.

Cyrus teamed up with the `Blurred Lines` singer at the awards show last month and caused controversy when she twerked on his crotch and prodded herself with a giant foam finger.

"Me and Robin Thicke the whole time said, `You know we`re about to make history right now`," Cyrus told MTV.

"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," she added.

Cyrus also confessed that she is unfazed by the negative reaction to the performance, as she has witnessed it all before in pop music.

"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? Madonna`s done it. Britney`s done it. Every VMAs performance, that`s what you`re looking for; you`re wanting to make history."
