In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Miley Cyrus once again defends herself claiming that she is not appropriating black culture. The former Disnet star states:
“People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever,'” the 20-year-old singer says in the Oct. 8 issue of Rolling Stone when the subject of her penchant for twerking comes up. “I’m like, ‘I’m 108 pounds! I know!’ Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that s–t again.”
Although Miley may say one thing, her actions have proved to be a hot button issue for critics even going as far to call her MTV VMA performance racist and a “minstrel show.”
“I’m from one of the wealthiest counties in America,” she says. “I know what I am. But I also know what I like to listen to. Look at any 20-year-old white girl right now – that’s what they’re listening to at the club. It’s 2013. The gays are getting married, we’re all collaborating. I would never think about the color of my dancers, like, ‘Ooh, that might be controversial.’
“Times are changing. I think there’s a generation or two left, and then it’s gonna be a whole new world.” For the entire Miley Cyrus interview go to Rolling Stone Magazine.
