MILEY CYRUS has apologised for comments she made about hip-hop music in 2017.
The 26-year-old star was criticised two years ago for comments she made in an interview with BillboardBangerz.
At the time of the interview, Cyrus said: “It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k. I am so not that.”
One fan shared a video on YouTube, entitled Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry, where she explained why she still loved the singer despite the remarks.
Miley took to the comments section below clip, and said: “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 by 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 alot (to) learn about,” she 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 apologise.”
Concluding her post, Miley told her followers: “I’m committed to using my voice for healing , change, and standing up for what’s right.”
