Following some comments she made about the genre of Hip Hop during a recent interview with Billboard, the singer has responded to the backlash via an IG post.
Cyrus originally came out to the public as a squeaky clean child star in the form of Hannah Montana, covering country music songs in her free time in Youtube videos. Then came her 2013 Bangerz album in which she collaborated with Hip Hop acts such as Juicy J and took advantage of the "twerking" craze ( which is nothing new) in quite a few of her performances.
One of those twerking performances even led Robin Thicke's wife Paula Patton to finally leave his ass.
After all of this, Miley says she just doesn't relate to Hip Hop anymore.
"I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song ["Humble"]: 'Show me somethin' natural like ass with some stretch marks.' I love that because it's not 'Come sit on my d**k, suck on my c**k.' I can't listen to that anymore," she explained. "That's what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much 'Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k'—I am so not that," she said in the original interview, sparking controversy with Hip Hop fans who'd seen the popstar flit from genre to genre throughout her career pretty carelessly.
Welp, Miley's come back to respond to the backlash.
"I respect ALL artists who speak their truth and appreciate ALL genres of music (country , pop , alternative .... but in this particular interview I was asked about rap) I have always and will continue to love and celebrate hip hop as I've collaborated with some of the very best! At this point in my life I am expanding personally/musically and gravitating more towards uplifting, conscious rap!"
