Speaking to Billboard for a cover story two years ago, Cyrus reflected on her Bangerz album, produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and featuring Big Sean and Ludacris. In that interview she remarked on Kendrick Lamar's "Humble," saying: "'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," she continued. "It was too much 'Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock,' I am so not that."

On Tuesday, June 11, Cyrus posted a lengthy reply in the comment section of a fan's YouTube video titled "Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav...Sorry." Writing under As Told By Kenya's video, Cyrus conceded that her 2017 comments were "insensitive" and acknowledged that "it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of 'the scene.'"

She continued: "I can not change what I said at that time, but I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words caused. Simply said ; i fucked up and I sincerely apologize." See the full post below.
