People Are Accusing Miley Cyrus Of Only Using Black Culture When It’s ‘Convenient’

no title

Miley Cyrus is being called out.

As we reported, the 24-year-old announced her new music while opening up about entering the next chapter of her life in an interview with Billboard.

During the discussion, Milez talked about moving away from being in the hip hop scene and focusing more on her folksy roots.

For context, here is the 23 singer’s full response when asked if Melanie Safka influenced her new sound:

“She did, and I grew up with her. But 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 dick, suck on my cock.’ 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 cock’ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I am so not that … I was torn on whether I was going to work with certain producers that I really like. But I feel if we’re not on the same page ├é┬¡politically … My record is political, but the sound bite doesn’t stop there. Because you can write something beautiful and you know E! News will ruin our lives and say, ‘This is a political record.’ Because then I’m the Dixie Chicks and I’m getting my album smashed in the streets, and that’s not what I want. I want to talk to people in a compassionate, understanding way — which people aren’t doing.”

We totally understand Miz Cyrus’ interest in wanting to create music with more substance… but people are NOT happy that she used black culture only when it was “convenient” for her.
