Two years ago, in a cover story forBillboard, Miley Cyrus yelled out her love for Kendrick Lamar’s “Simple” by contrasting it with what she perceived as the styles of modern hip-hop. “I also like that brand-new Kendrick song: ‘Program me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks,'” she said. “I love that due to the fact that it’s not ‘Come rest on my dick, draw on my cock.’ I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pressed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a lady on my cock’– I am so not that.”

At the time, these comments were translated as part of Miley’s effort to distance herself from her previous music design, which drew heavily from hip-hop and was forged by her working together with rap heavyweights like Mike Will Made-It and Future, particularly on her 2013 albumBangerz— a fact that made her remarks not especially well gotten. However as she just recently mentioned, she’s grown because then.

Her newest EP,She Is Coming, features Swae Lee and Ghostface Killah. And today, she put in the time to apologize for her past remarks through a YouTube remark on a fan’s video titled “Miley Cyrus Is My Troublesome Fav … Sorry.”

” I desire to begin with stating I am sorry. I own the truth that saying … ‘this pressed me out of the hip hop scene a little’ was insensitive as it is an advantage to have the capability to dip in and out of ‘the scene,'” Miley wrote in a reply that the uploader has actually since pinned to the top of the comments. “There are years of inequality that I understand, however still have alot learn more about.”

She advanced, apologizing again, requiring unity, and vowing herself to be a “voice for recovery, modification, and defending what’s right.” “I can not change what I said at that time, however I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words triggered,” she wrote. “Just stated; i fucked up and I all the best ask forgiveness.”

Miley’s words come at a time that’s seen her engage with fans and critics more directly by means of social media. After she droppedShe Is Cominglate last month, she reportedly called out a critic for an undesirable review, later on deleting the tweets. She’s also been greatly promoting her current starring function in the brand-newBlack Mirrorepisode “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too” along with teasing an upcoming collaboration between Planned Parenthood, Marc Jacobs, and her Happy Hippie Foundation set to benefit reproductive rights.
