Miley Cyrus Disassociates from Hip-Hop? ‘I Can’t Listen to That Anymore’
Several years ago, Miley Cyrus was collaborating with Mike WiLL Made-It and twerking on Instagram to rap songs. But now she’s over it.
In a Billboard cover story, Cyrus says that she’s not into rap music that promotes misogyny or artists who glamorize cars and jewelry in their songs.
“But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [“Humble”]: ‘Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks,'” she explained. “I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my d---, 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’ - I am so not that.”
The 24-year-old singer also addresses the criticisms that she appropriates black culture. “It’s mind-boggling to me that there was even a controversy around me having black dancers," she said. "That became a thing, where people said I was taking advantage of Black culture, and with Mike [WiLL Made-It] - what the f---? That wasn’t true. Those were the dancers I liked!"
Elsewhere in the interview, Cryus announced that she's three weeks sober from drugs and smoking weed. "I think [Madonna and Lady Gaga] are enlightened. I f---ing hate it when people can’t adjust," she said. "I used to [resist changing]. But I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do."
