Miley Cyrus Opens Up About Her Controversial 2013
In a new interview with the New York Times, Cyrus held court on her controversial year, discussing a range of subjects including drugs, taking control of her career and race, with many critics taking the singer to task for the appropriation of African-American cultural cues.
"I didn't know that I was going to be the only one that was really going to push it like that," she said in regards to her performance dominating the post-VMAs conversation.
"It's actually really funny how many people could watch my performance, and they think it was, like, sexist and degrading to women, and somehow people found that it was racist, which I couldn't even wrap my mind around. Because I'm like: 'How do I win? If I have white dancers, then I'm racist. If I have black girl dancers, then I'm racist.' We know we're not racist, and I know I'm not putting down women." more on this story
