  • Folks are still taking about Miley Cyrus and her controversial VMA performance, thanks to new comments from the singer in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

    This time, she fires back at critics who think her performance was racist, in which she used her black dancers as props.

    “I don’t keep my producers or dancers around ’cause it makes me look cool,” Cyrus said in her cover story. “Those aren’t my ‘accessories.’ They’re my homies.”

    She also disputes the notion that she’s pretending to be black.

    “I’m from one of the wealthiest counties in America,” she says. “I know what I am. But I also know what I like to listen to. Look at any 20-year-old white girl right now — that’s what they’re listening to at the club. It’s 2013. The gays are getting married, we’re all collaborating. I would never think about the color of my dancers, like, ‘Ooh, that might be controversial.’ ”

    Cyrus also thinks it’s a double standard that people are criticizing her for grinding with Robin Thicke but not bashing the “Blurred Lines” singer.

    “No one is talking about the man behind the ass,” she says. “It was a lot of ‘Miley twerks on Robin Thicke,’ but never, ‘Robin Thicke grinds up on Miley.’ They’re only talking about the one that bent over. So obviously there’s a double standard.”

    And, she thinks it’s strange that MTV bleeped her singing “molly” but showed her performance, comparing it to how “Breaking Bad” shows people cooking crystal meth but bleeps out the F-word.

    “America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong,” she says. “Like, I was watching ‘Breaking Bad’ the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show. It’s a how-to. And then they bleeped out the word ‘f—.’ And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘f—’? It’s like when they bleeped ‘molly’ at the VMAs. Look what I’m doing up here right now, and you’re going to bleep out ‘molly’? Whatever.”

    1. Personally, I could care less what she does. My only thing is that if you are going to dance like that and be known for your raunchiness, at least HAVE THE BODY FOR IT. Nicki Minaj knew she didn’t have the body for it so she went out and BOUGHT one!!! Nothing worse than to see someone twerking and booty bounce dancin with NO shape/body whatsoever!! I personally think she has some issues.

    2. Please proof your articles before they are printed and posted to your website. It is so unprofessional how you have so my typos and grammatical errors. Can’t you find some qualified Administrative Assistants, Editors, and Proofreaders? It makes Afro Americans look bad; our website with these errors over and over again. This is my 2nd time posting this concern.

    3. She is so right…go girl…all the negativepl just got put in their places by a youngan. These so call adults and their double standards….u go girl do u…you r not doing anything and I do mean anything that the rest of us haven’t done or something w the same consequences……do u..this will keep u off of the drugs be true to u and everything else will fall in place
