FILE - In this Aug. 25, 2013 file photo, singers Robin Thicke, left, and Miley Cyrus perform "Blurred Lines" at the MTV Video Music Awards in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Cyrus says in an interview clip that she doesn’t listen to the negative comments regarding her performance on the MTV Video Music Awards. The pop star says she felt she and Robin Thicke were making history with the risque performance of their hits “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines.” The comments were Cyrus’ first since the Aug. 25 show. The clip was recorded last week and posted Tuesday morning on MTV’s website. Cyrus compares the performance to that of Madonna and Britney Spears, who once kissed on air.

You'll be able to watch LDS General conference on Channel 5 earlier in the day, and then stay tuned for host/musical guest Miley Cyrus after the late news. Really.
