Oh, Miley. With new music on the way, the 24-year-old songstress聽is gearing聽up for its impending release with plenty of publicity. Unfortunately, it hasn鈥檛 all been the good kind. While Cyrus has been busy explaining what her new sound will be like and exactly what happened with her on-again fianc茅聽Liam Hemsworth, the 鈥淲e Can鈥檛 Stop鈥 singer is getting plenty of flack for several comments she made about the hip-hop genre in a recent interview with聽Billboard.

Miley Cyrus _ Billboard May 2017

In the piece, she spoke about how she was moving away from her 鈥淗ip-Hop鈥 vibe and into new musical territory. That鈥檚 when things took a turn. While she admitted to loving Kendrick Lamar鈥檚 new single, 鈥淗umble,鈥 the chanteuse also lambasted other rappers in the industry for their lyrics, saying, 鈥淚 love [Lamar鈥檚 song] because it鈥檚 not 鈥楥ome sit on my d鈥搆, suck on my c鈥搆.鈥 I can鈥檛 listen to that anymore. That鈥檚 what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much 鈥楲amborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c鈥搆鈥 鈥 I am so not that.鈥

Fans are not taking her words lightly.

Many on Twitter felt that聽she used hip hop music and culture to her advantage to further her fame, then dismissed it in a move they thought reeked of cultural appropriation, dragging her accordingly on social media.

Cyrus has now responded to those with ruffled feathers with an Instagram post meant to clarify her words.

鈥淲hen articles are read it isn鈥檛 always considered that for hours I鈥檝e spoken with a journalist about my life,鈥 the singer said. 鈥淪o, to be clear I respect ALL artists who speak their truth and appreciate ALL genres of music鈥 have always and will continue to love and celebrate hip-hop as I鈥檝e collaborated with some of the very best!鈥

While it鈥檚 unclear how her apology will play out, one thing鈥檚 for sure:聽Things are just getting started for Cyrus in her new journey.
