'Miley: The Movement' shows behind-the-scenes of Cyrus' preparation for her MTV VMA performance and her reaction to backlash over her raunchy stage act.
An MTV documentary on Miley Cyrus offers an insight to the star's controversial performance at MTV Video Music Awards. The network has released the first trailer for "Miley: The Movement", sharing glimpses of behind-the-scenes of her preparation for the said show with the actress/singer explaining her evolution as an artist in an interview.
"I was born to become like who I am right now," she says. "Right now I'm at a point in my career when I can be exactly what I want to be, who I want to be... Everytime I do anything I want to remember this what separates me from everybody else. I have this freedom to do whatever I want because I'm starting as a new artist now."
The 20-year-old has received backlash following her raunchy stage act at the awards show and she's seen confiding to Britney Spears about this. "Everyone takes the VMAs so serious," the former Disney darling tells the ex-Mouseketeer in a recording studio. "I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun. I just wanna have fun!"
While Spears only giggles to Cyrus' explanation, the "Work B**ch" songstress has said that she can relate to Cyrus. "I remember that age when I was just transferring into my career and doing more controversial things and the energy that you feel, all this chaos going on, and she is on fire right now, she's just a ball full of energy," she recently told Mario Lopez, adding that the VMAs is "a time to embellish a little bit on the creative side of what you do, bring the artistic side of what you do out."
The one-hour documentary special "Miley: The Movement" will debut on Wednesday, October 2 at 10 P.M. ET on MTV.
