So, what was she thinking?
In her first video interview since her notorious twerking routine at MTV's Video Music Awards on Aug. 25, Miley Cyrus says she wanted to do something people would talk about – not just for days but for years to come.
"Me and Robin [Thicke] the whole time said, 'You know we're about to make history right now,' " Cyrus, 20, says in a video clip recorded last week and obtained by MTV.

While Lamar Odom's personal life comes under scrutiny – amid allegations of drug abuse and marital problems – his professional life also seems to be taking a turn for the worse.
Odom, who was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2011 and won two NBA championships as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, is currently a free agent at a time when most of the team rosters are already filled.
"It's almost Labor Day weekend and players are starting to return to their teams, and Lamar doesn't have a team," says an NBA insider who knows Odom. "He's gone from making $8.5 million last year to being out of work at this point."

Robin Thicke, who famously grinded with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards, gets plenty salacious in his new "Give It 2 U" video as well. But the clip also features a more innocent dancer – his adorable 3-year-old son Julian.
Thicke, 36, goes shirtless in the new video, which features lots of twerking by female dancers along with a foam finger – all reminiscent of his polarizing performance with Cyrus, 20, on Sunday.
But Julian – Robin's son with wife Paula Patton – adds a welcome dose of cuteness by showing off his own dance moves in a little black suit, gold chains and a puffy blonde hairdo.

Miley Cyrus has at least one supporter this week, and he's no stranger to controversy himself.
"Listen if it wasn't ur cup of tea – all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey – she's doin something right. We all talkin," Adam Lambert wrote Monday on Twitter.
He stopped short, though, of saying he actually enjoyed the 20-year-old pop star's twerking routine with Robin Thicke.

Just one day after a federal judge dismissed the racial discrimination case against Paula Deen, the shamed southern chef stepped out with her Aunt Peggy Ort and a friend at one of her favorite Savannah, Ga. eateries for lunch.
While digging into fried chicken, a baked sweet potato and veggies, "she was her usual friendly self," says Sweet Potatoes Kitchen owner Steve Magulias. "She was glad to have the racial part of the case dismissed and that part behind her."
Since it was revealed that in a deposition made public in June that Deen, 66, used a racial slur, the TV chef – who lost her contract with Food Network among other business partners – has led a quiet life at home in Savannah.

Alex Rodriguez will have a one-of-a-kind day on Monday. He received a lengthy suspension from baseball and then will head to the ballpark to play for the New York Yankees for the first time this season.
A-Rod's suspension, through the 2014 season (pending appeal), was announced as part of Major League Baseball's latest drug investigation, a person familiar with the decision told the Associated Press.
Major League Baseball informed the Yankees on Sunday that A-Rod will be suspended for his links to a clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statement was authorized.

And it happened in record time – at a 70-second hearing Wednesday, according to the U.K.'s The Guardian.
The official end of their marriage comes just seven weeks after shocking photos were published of Saatchi with his hands around Lawson's neck as they apparently argued inside a London restaurant.

Teresa Giudice and her husband Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice were released on $500,000 bond each after making initial court appearances on Tuesday in Newark, N.J., to face federal fraud charges.
The stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey were ordered to surrender their passports and to confine their travels to New Jersey and New York. Joe Giudice could be deported to Italy if convicted because he is not a U.S. citizen.
They did not enter pleas.

Geraldo Rivera, 70, just wanted to show the world he's as fit as ever.
But after the Geraldo at Large host showed off his physique Saturday in a risqué selfie on Twitter that just barely covered his private parts, his daughter and his network, Fox News, were not too happy.
Blaming tequila, which he says he usually doesn't drink, Rivera explained on Monday to New York's 95.5 PLJ Radio that he'd taken the photo earlier in the day and when he got home from a late night at work, "I had a couple of drinks ... It was 2:30 and I was like, 'Dammit, I like that picture.' I learned how to use Twitter a couple weeks ago and there I was. What a great idea."
