Is “HIP HOP” too vulgar? Too sexual nowadays? Hold onto your hats folks because you will NOT believe who suddenly became the moral judge of music. Miley Cyrus recently blew up the internet by saying that “HIP HOP is Too SEXUAL, I Want To Produce More Wholesome Music.” Wait… she has the phrase “too sexual” in her vocabulary? Who knew?
Would you consider Miley Cyrus’s comment a stereotypical one? Is she a hypocrite for saying that after the controversy from her past music and attire from her hip hop music? If Miley Cyrus was to produce wholesome music after so much controversy from her hip hop music would you listen to her music or buy her album?
Miley Cyrus is backing down from controversial comments she made about hip hop music being sexual and vulgar. The 24-year-old singer said she couldn’t listen to the genre anymore because of the lyrics in an interview this week with Billboard, but her comment was seen as a stereotypical interpretation of hip hop.
She said she loved Kendrick Lamar’s new song “Humble,” where he talks about stretch marks, adding: “I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my d–k, suck on my c–k.’ I can’t listen to that anymore.”
Hmm… same old gross Miley. She says she ‘can’t listen to it’, but she can say it? Just saying what someone may or may not say doesn’t mean that YOU didn’t say it, Miley. And if you know Miley like I do, you know she wasn’t done there as she continued, “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 c–k’—I am so not that,” she continued. Anymore.
After receiving a lot of negative comments for her remarks, even being called, “complete trash,” she then tried to clarify what she was trying to say on Instagram: “When articles are read it isn’t always considered that for hours I’ve spoken with a journalist about my life, where my heart is, my perspective at that time, and the next step in my career. So, to be clear I respect ALL artists who speak their truth and appreciate ALL genres of music (country , pop , alternative …. but in this particular interview I was asked about rap) I have always and will continue to love and celebrate hip hop as I’ve collaborated with some of the very best!”
It is no surprise that a girl with such a moral lowground can’t even stick with her original “new” opinion and let it be. She has to defend and explain because the new Miley doesn’t want people to hate or judge her. What a friggin’ Disney-fed-snowflake. Then comes the most ironic part of all, after spending years of dragging the youth of America into the mud with her, she says she wants to be a good example. “At this point in my life I am expanding personally/musically and gravitating more towards uplifting, conscious rap! As I get older I understand the effect music has on the world & seeing where we are today I feel the younger generation needs to hear positive powerful lyrics! I am proud to be an artist without borders and thankful for the opportunity to explore so many different styles/ sounds! I hope my words (sung or spoken) always encourage others to LOVE…. Laugh…. Live fully…. to be there for one another… to unify, and to fight for what’s right (human , animal , or environmental ) Sending peace to all! Look forward to sharing my new tunes with you soon!” *barf and gag… I still can’t wipe the picture of naked Miley on a wrecking ball with her gross tongue out of my head. She is unbelievable!
While some social media users weren’t very accepting of her apology, others understood that her remarks were specifically about the vulgar and misogynistic lyrics in hip hop. But that didn’t stop some from permanently taking a break from Miley.“No longer a fan,” one user wrote and I don’t blame them. It’s like a prostitute saying, I’m going to change my style and join the PTA and you better forget about my past.
I have to hand it to Miley though, hip hop is running out of themes. All they have are big butts, making money from drugs, degrading women, gun violence and flashy things —typical and boring. Hip Hop has changed in so many ways over the course of time. What happened to making a change with music, teaching kids about life and chasing dreams, about staying in school and getting an education, loving one another? Oh yeah, that’s country music. I honestly love that Miley is going back to her roots with country music. 1 less ‘nasty’ on my Grammy’s.
