After teasing her collaboration with the rapper, the 'We Can't Stop' singer is criticized by Twitter users for using her hip-hop aspirations as a way to rebel from her Disney days.
Miley Cyrus perhaps has tried too hard to shed her Disney princess image and show her more urban side. The former "Hannah Montana" star recently dropped a preview of her collaboration with French Montana in his "Ain't Worried About Nothin" remix and got some negative responses.
In a video taken from a recording studio, the fiancee of Liam Hemsworth can been heard spitting out some lines. Sitting next to Montana, she lip syncs her part in the song in which she raps, "B***h, I ain't worried about nothin'."
She has since got a backlash from Twitter users who might think she's trying to be black with her foray into hip-hop world. Responding to the criticism, she tweeted, "I know what color my skin is. you can stop with the friendly reminders b***h."
Blogger and podcaster Kid Fury attacks Cyrus in a series of tweets. Some of them read, "B**h you're out here appropriating our culture as means to rebel from your Disney days, but we gotta shut up about your skin?", "Black people are reminded of what our color is every single day for far worse. You mad because you the twerking WHITE b***h? Sit," and, "We out here getting 'stopped and frisked' FOR REAL, sis. Shut your mouth."
The 20-year-old actress/singer then posted an image featuring part of lyrics from her hit single "We Can't Stop", "It's My Mouth I Can Say What I Want."
Miley Cyrus' new album "Bangerz" is expected to be released sometime this year. She's worked with a bunch of hip-hop artists like Big Sean, Ludacris and Future for the studio installment, but the album producer Pharrell Williams assured fans that the album wouldn't fall into the rap genre.
"It's just gonna sound like her and her influences, but it's not that hip-hop heavy," he said. "That's not what she does, that's not where she comes from. It's a part of what she loves, which is a very big difference."
