Miley Cyrus is Apologizing for Her 'Insensitive' Comments About Hip-Hop

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

After a fan-made YouTube video titled “Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry”, the 26-year-old singer took to the comment section to apologize.

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up,” Miley 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.’”

Back in her 2017 Billboard cover story, Miley faced major backlash after she said she wasn’t a fan of rap music anymore.

“It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c–k,’” Miley said at the time. “I am so not that.”

Critics then started to accuse Miley of putting down a culture she once channeled – during her 2013 Bangerz era – when it no longer helped her career.

“There are decades of inequality that I am aware of, but still have alot [to] learn about,” Miley 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 apologize . I’m committed to using my voice for healing , change , and standing up for what’s right.”

    About time. Honestly though, most of us don’t go our whole lives without there being social issues we need to be more sensitive about and more educated about, no matter how woke we’d like to think we are.
