Miley Cyrus Apologizes For "Insensitive" Comments About Hip Hop

"It is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of 'the scene.'"

(AllHipHop News) Back in 2013, Miley Cyrus dipped her toe into Hip Hop with her fourth studio album Bangerz. The project featured production by Mike Will Made-It. Big Sean and French Montana also appeared on the LP.

Miley also made headlines for embracing twerking. Plus, the "We Can't Stop" singer had one of the most talked about moments at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards when she sexually danced in front of Robin Thicke during a performance.

During that period, Miley was often accused of cultural appropriation. In 2017, she caught even more backlash when the Black Mirror star stated that she can't listen to a certain type of rap music anymore because the genre was "too much 'Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock.'"

Cyrus is now apologizing for what she said about the culture two years ago. She wrote a comment addressing her 2017 Billboard interview under a video published on the As Told By Kenya YouTube channel.

Miley posted:

Just watched your video. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up. 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 [a lot to] learn about. 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*cked up and I sincerely apologize. I’m committed to using my voice for healing, change, and standing up for what’s right. Miley
