Miley Cyrus: The VMA Performance Went According to Plan

Miley Cyrus loves the attention she’s getting (though most would argue it’s for all the wrong reasons) and is excited that people are still talking about her salacious performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards (again, for all the wrong reasons).

Cyrus sat down with Matt Lauer this morning on “Today” where she said she doesn’t “ever really plan to offend people” but then said of her VMA performance, “It’s a month later and we’re still talking about. It definitely went as planned.”

It remains to be seen how the attention will translate for Cyrus in record sales. Her new album, “Bangerz,” was released last Friday and will have to contend with week 2 sales of Drake’s chart-topping album, “Nothing Was the Same.”

Early ratings show her appearance as host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” didn’t provide much spark; they were about on par with Tina Fey’s appearance the week before.
