Miley Cyrus has apologised for comments she made that some deemed ‘insensitive’ back in 2017 about hip-hop music.
At the time, Miley Cyrus spoke out about the genre, saying: “It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k. I am so not that.” But her comments led to quite a bit of backlash from those who accused her of being hypocritical considering she explored hip-hop style music in her 2013 album, Bangerz.
A fan shared a homemade video on YouTube entitled ‘Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry’, explaining why she still loved the singer despite the remarks, and Miley took it upon herself to head on over to the video’s comment section to respond.
“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up,” she wrote. “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,” she continued. “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 f**ked up and I sincerely apologise.”
Finishing up her apology post, Miley told her followers: “I’m committed to using my voice for healing , change , and standing up for what’s right.”
