Miley Cyrus Acts Out “By Design!”


Miley Cyrus isn’t surprised by the attention she’s (STILL) getting after her now infamous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards and controversial nude music video for “Wrecking Ball.”  In fact, she says, it’s by design.

“It’s kind of what I want,” Cyrus, told Matt Lauer on the Today show Monday. “I’m an artist, so I’m hoping that I get a little attention, otherwise my record sales might be a little sketch. … I don’t ever really plan to offend people, but sometimes that just happens, because I think people aren’t open to what they don’t understand.”

Commenting on her VMA performance with Robin Thicke, Cyrus said: “It went exactly as planned. I mean, it’s a month later and we’re still talking about it.”

Cyrus’ first two singles off her upcoming album “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” are both currently in ITunes top 10 (both having spend long stints at number 1.  Apparently the “by design” plan is working.
