Miley Cyrus gets called out for dissing hip-hop for having vulgar lyrics.
Preparing to release her new single, "Malibu," Miley told Billboard that her new music will be folksier and more country-influenced than her last album, 2013's Bangerz, which was executive produced by Mike Will Made-It (whom she was also rumored to be dating).
During the interview, Miley noted that she finds the sex-positive lyrics on Kendrick Lamar's new single, "Humble," to be a refreshing turn away from the vulgar, perhaps misogynistic, lyrics that she thinks characterizes modern-day hip-hop. She told Billboard:
But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [“Humble”]: "Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks.” I love that because it’s not “Come sit on my dick, suck on my cock.” I can’t listen to that anymore. 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 cock” -- I am so not that.
Some Twitter users have responded negatively to Miley's comments about hip-hop, as they feel that she shouldn't be able to criticize the genre after she used -- and perhaps appropriated -- it in such an obvious way during an important time in her lucrative career.

Ironically, Miley Cyrus is pulling a "that's why you ugly, anyway!" on hip-hop after spending years trying to get its approval.— Keith RC (@kreid_c) May 4, 2017
