Miley Cyrus Forced to Respond to Backlash Against Her Comments About Hip Hop

Published

on

Last week, Miley Cyrus made news by making some controversial comments about the music genre Hip Hop. The singer, who is no stranger to controversy, told Billboard, “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. 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.”
When the interview hit the stands, it provoked an immediate reaction.

And…

The controversy seems to be around Cyrus’s use of the Hip-Hop style to make money. She made a ton of it doing this. Some are criticizing her for exploiting Black culture in the United States to sell albums and now has turned her back on it. This is what forced the singer to respond. For her part, she contends that her comments have been taken out of context and denies turning her back on the musical genre.

Cyrus Responds to the Backlash

Cyrus’s responded to the controversy:

“When articles are read it isn’t always considered that for hours I’ve spoken with a journalist about my life, where my heart is, my perspective at that time, and the next step in my career. Unfortunately only a portion of that interview made it to print.

“To be clear, 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!”

Cyrus is not the only white American artist to profit from appropriating Black culture and music. This trend started with Elvis Pressley and continued to the more modern Eminem. It is pretty clear that as long as they can use it to sell their product, they will.
