Miley Cyrus Apologizes Again For Controversial Comments on Hip Hop in 2017

Miley Cyrus is still apologizing for comments she made about the hip-hop community in 2017. 

Cyrus 26, felt the wrath of backlash when she told Billboard magazine that she was no longer a fan of some rap music because of the sometimes graphic, degrading sex-filled language in the genre.

At the time, Miley was promoting her “Younger Now” album, which saw the singer return to her country music roots. 

However, upset fans were quick to note that Cyrus had previously incorporated and appropriated the same elements of the hip-hop culture she criticized into her 2013 album “Bangerz;” not to mention her over the top, twerk-heavy VMA performance with Robin Thicke.

Cyrus soon apologized and expressed regret over her words,  but that hasn’t stopped fans from voicing their disapproval. 

According to People, when one fan took to YouTube to discuss her disappointment with Miley and her comments, Cyrus responded. 

“Just watched your video. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up,” Cyrus wrote in the comments section of Wilson’s video (titled “Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry“) on Monday.

“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,” Cyrus said. 

“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,’” she continued. 

Miley went on to say she was sorry for any disconnect her initial words might have caused. 

Simply said; “I f—ed up and I sincerely apologize. I’m committed to using my voice for healing, change, and standing up for what’s right.”
