Miley Cyrus is apologizing for her insensitive comments about why she left the hip-hop scene.
In an 2017 interview with Billboard, she said that she was no longer a fan of rap because of the raunchy lyrics.
“I also love that new Kendrick song [‘Humble’]: ‘Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks.’ I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my d*ck, suck on my c*ck.’ I can’t listen to that anymore.
“That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little,” she continued. “It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock’ — I am so not that.”
Miley was met with heavy criticism following these comments, by people who thought she used the hip-hop culture and dropped them when she could no longer benefit from it.
Miley is now apologizing, as she has realized how insensitive they were.
In the comment section of a fan’s YouTube video she wrote:
“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up. Being silent is not like me at all. I am aware of my platform and have always used it the best way I know how and to shine a light on injustice. I want to start with saying I am sorry. I own the fact that saying … ‘this pushed me out of the hip hop scene a little’ was insensitive as it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of ‘the scene.’
There are decades of inequality that I am aware of, but still have alot [to] learn about. Silence is apart of the problem and I refuse to be quiet anymore. My words became a divider in a time where togetherness and unity is crucial . I can not change what I said at that time , but I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words caused. Simply said ; i fucked up and I sincerely apologize . I’m committed to using my voice for healing , change , and standing up for what’s right.”
