‘Miley the Movement’ aired Oct. 2 at 10 p.m., and with Miley, we didn’t know WHAT to expect. Not only did the documentary reveal that Miley was inspired by Britney Spears to stage her epic VMA performance, but we also learned that she actually didn’t want to wear that infamous latex bikini at all!
Before she conquers Saturday Night Live on Oct. 5, Miley Cyrus decided to take the world by storm with her new MTV documentary. Miley: The Movement was her chance to explain that while she’s changed in the past five years; she doesn’t want anyone to call it a transition.
Miley Cyrus: I’m Not ‘Hannah Montana’ Anymore
Miley used the special as an opportunity to speak her mind. She’s not Hannah Montana anymore — in case you didn’t know — and she wanted to tell everyone that “it’s not a transition.”
“I’m the same human, I’ve got the same heart I did five years ago — it’s a movement, it’s a growth it’s a change.”
Just because she’s hit that growth, it doesn’t mean she’s forgotten how she got where she is today, nor has she forgotten the fans who helped her get there.
“The way that I am about Britney [Spears], that’s how a lot of people are about me, ” she said about her fans. “She was my first record, I was a lot of people’s first album, I was a lot of people’s first idol. I’ll be a die-hard fan of Britney always because she’s that for me — that’s what my fans are. So I can’t throw any shade on any thing I did as a kid.”
Her fans, who she calls “an Army” are all part of the movement. Miley admitted it that she was forced into doing a lot of things she didn’t want to do as a kid — and with Bangerz, she did 100 percent what she wanted.
Miley showed her viewers how she took each step of her transition starting with her drastic haircut. “I just felt like I could finally be the bad b–ch I am!” she said after chopping her locks.
Miley On Her Shocking VMA Performance: I Tried To Be Topless
Of course, we all waited to hear what Miley would say about her killer VMA performance — and like everything else she does, she wanted to make a statement.
While decided what she’d do, Miley chatted with Britney in the studio while working on their collaboration, “SMS (Bangerz).” She admitted that Britney had multiple career-changing performances at the VMAs — from the kiss with Madonna to the “Slave 4 U” performance with a live snake. Miley wanted a career-changing performance, too.
She felt the need to express herself in the performance, be someone that she wanted to be, and do what she wanted to. “Everyone takes the VMAs so seriously and I just wanna come out and like shoot a hot dog gun, I just want to have fun!” she told Britney.
Of course, Britney laughed and asked, “You’re not going to go topless, right?”
“I tried to go there, but I don’t think MTV is going to allow it,” she responded. “I’m like, what about nude latex?”
And nude latex it was! We saw Miley getting pumped up backstage, which was a nice glance at the real girl she is.
Miley Cyrus: I Really Mean It, ‘We Can’t Stop’
Cut to the backlash after the performance — Miley doesn’t care and admitted that she found the performance hilarious!
“You’re always gonna make people talk, you might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds,” she says — which is completely true.
Since the VMA performance, Miley says, people really understand what she’s all about now.
“I’m not just saying, we can’t stop — I’m serious,” she explained. “This is who we are, this is our night, this is what we’re doing. Right now, I still feel like I’m beginning.”
