Vanessa Bayer's SNL impersonation seems so much more lifelike these days.



In case you were wondering, Miley Cyrus has finally spoken her mind about her racy (some might say trashy) performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards. Believe it or not, she doesn't think she did anything out of line. Hey, we didn't say out of line, we said trashy.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times," she told MTV on Aug. 27 in a video teaser of a forthcoming documentary. "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? ... Madonna's done it. Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, anyone that performs, that's what you're looking for; you're wanting to make history. Me and Robin the whole time said, 'You know we're about to make history right now.'"

If by history you mean the most number of tweets calling a single person "off the rails" at one time. But Miley seems to think all that publicity she craved is somehow overwrought. That doesn't even make any sense.

"What's amazing is I think now, we're three days later and people are still talking about it. They're overthinking it," she said (watch the video below if you choose). "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!"

Okay, we were giving Miley the benefit of the doubt, but now she said something really dumb. Truly, that last part is something you want emblazoned on a t-shirt for that ages, isn't it? "'Cause that's just me!" could be the new YOLO!
