When James Corden asked what she’d “changed most” in her life since the MTV VMAs, Miley responded:
It’s funny you mention the VMAs. The first VMAs in 2013, with the twerking and Robin Thicke, has led me to being the activist that I am now. Because I realised that if so many people were going to talk about something that I did, or I do, then I should make it a good thing. Something that can change people’s lives rather than being a controversial conversation that does nothing but become a fun Halloween costume for people.
