Miley Cyrus: ‘I know what color my skin is. You can stop with the friendly reminders’
Miley Cyrus’ embrace of hip-hop — from using its rhetoric to its rhymes — has ruffled the feathers of many who have criticized the pop star’s recent actions.
Now, the former Hannah Montana star joined French Montana and produced a remix to the rapper’s hit song “Ain’t Worried About Nothin.”
In a video she posted to Facebook, Cyrus and Montana are seen bobbing their heads while a preview of the track is played.
Some found the video offensive as the song frequently mentions the n-word – and although Cyrus never uses the term herself, viewers voiced concern, saying they found it inappropriate for the pop star to be featured on such a track.
In response, Cyrus says she is well aware of who she is and what she is doing.
“I know what color my skin is. You can stop with the friendly reminders b-tch,” she tweeted on Monday.
The lyrics to Cyrus’ remix of “Ain’t Worried About Nothing” read:
On the day I dropped my video
I got three thick girls in my video
Got that molly and you know, you know you’ll never stop
Think I’m turnt up wait until my album drops
Versace, Versace, Versace
How will I get this Versace
Fashion Week you can find me in New York
Posing for the paparazzi
In my all-white like French Montana
Oh sh–, there goes Hannah Montana
Acting like a Southern Girl
Twerking like I grew up in Atlanta
The Ying Yang Twins have recorded a song in tribute to her with lyrics such as, “Do the Miley Cyrus, walk with it / Do the Miley Cyrus, b*tch get low.”
Even legendary rapper Jay-Z even referenced her on his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, saying, “Cause somewhere in America Miley Cyrus is still twerkin.”
