Miley Cyrus on the Hot Seat For Comments on Hip-Hop

posted by Justin - 

Miley Cyrus took to social media early yesterday to give clarity to remarks she made concerning her relationship with hip hop, that had people up in arms. Billboard published an interview they had with her, in which she claims to have been turned off by what she characterized as the "Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k" nature of the music she once co-opted as an expression of freedom from her teeny bopper image.

In the caption of an Instagram post yesterday Miley wrote: "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!" 

Her comments in Billboard were delivered in the context of her stating her appreciation for Kendrick Lamar's new music, which her critics saw past as they accused her of behaving in the typical manner of an artist who conveniently appropriates a cultural style, then abandons it when it is no longer beneficial.

"As I get older I understand the effect music has on the world & Seeing where we are today I feel the younger generation needs to hear positive powerful lyrics!" she says.

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 makes it to print, & A lot of the time publications like to focus on the most sensationalized part of the conversation. So, 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! At this point in my life I am expanding personally/musically and gravitating more towards uplifting, conscious rap! As I get older I understand the effect music has on the world & Seeing where we are today I feel the younger generation needs to hear positive powerful lyrics! I am proud to be an artist with out borders and thankful for the opportunity to explore so many different styles/ sounds! I hope my words (sung or spoken) always encourage others to LOVE.... Laugh.... Live fully.... to be there for one another... to unify, and to fight for what's right (human , animal , or environmental ) Sending peace to all! Look forward to sharing my new tunes with you soon! - MC
