Britney Spears stopped by the recording studio to sing and dish with Miley Cyrus for Miley’s documentary “The Movement,” which aired Wednesday (Oct. 2) on MTV. Naturally, the two talked about the MTV Video Music Awards — at the point when this documentary was filmed, Miley had yet to perform her eye-popping spectacle with Robin Thicke.

“The VMAs are always, like, the best. It’s so far. Working with Madonna — it’s like, it’s Madonna. It’s crazy,” says Britney.

“For me, that’s why I got into music. I want to give people that
again. Videos that are out of control, that people can’t believe. And
performances that you can’t believe,” says Cyrus. “Everyone takes the VMAs so serious and I just wanna come out and, like, shoot a hotdog gun.”

Then there is this exchange:

Britney: “You’re not gonna be topless on stage?”
Miley: “I tried. I tried to go there, but I don’t think MTV’s gonna allow it. I’m like, ‘What about nude latex?’ They’re like, ‘Mmm, I don’t know.'”

So, we should probably all be thankful Miley wasn’t topless at the 2013 VMAs.

Cyrus ends the segment with a very telling sentiment — “Everything’s about — what’s going to be the biggest moment in pop culture? … Britney’s got so many of those moments that people won’t ever forget. It’s about living and being in that moment and that’s really what ‘We Can’t Stop’ represents.”

In case you missed it, “Miley: The Movement” re-airs on MTV Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and several other times over the coming weeks, check here for the times and dates.
