After Miley Cyrus’ recent interview with Billboard was released, a snippet of it circulated social media revealing why Cyrus “stepped away” from hip-hop after the success of her Mike WiLL Made-It-produced album Bangerz.

After being accused of being a “culture vulture,” and doing what a lot of pop stars do – stray away from hip-hop after reaching success thanks to the genre, Cyrus took to Billboard to clear up the comments.

“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),” she wrote. “I have always and will continue to love and celebrate hip-hop as I’ve collaborated with some of the very best!

“At this point in my life I am expanding personally/musically and gravitating more towards uplifting, conscious rap,” she explained. “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!”

Miley Cyrus is expected to drop new music later this month.

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. Unfortunately only a portion of that interview makes it to print, & A lot of the time publications like to focus on the most sensationalized part of the conversation. 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! 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 with out 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! – MC
