Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus was very serious about her new-found love for all things hip-hop. Still, the question remains: Does she really know what she’s getting herself into, and is Liam Hemsworth ready for a rachet wedding? The music industry is already pretty harsh on female artists as it is, but posing as a hip-hop princess is far more criminal than Hannah Montana could ever imagine. Here’s why.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more pathetic with Cyrus, she trumped her earliest and most rachet moments when footage of the star alongside another Montana went viral yesterday:
It’s one thing to do the wop in a one-piece unicorn/frog suit, or create a music video where both booty-shaking and finger cutting together are considered kosher at pool parties, but it’s a whole different ball game when you decide to reach out for a remix with French Montana to solidify your place in the hip-hop community. Say what you will, but Cyrus is going to fake it ’til she makes it, at any expense, even if that means looking absolutely stupid.
Once the vid dropped, the hate immediately ensued, spawning a list of racially-motivated comments which the singer instantly took to Twitter to address:
i know what color my skin is. you can stop with the friendly reminders b**ch.

You’re correct Cyrus, you are white. But that is neither here nor there.
I don’t exactly believe all the hate she received is solely skin deep. In fact, I think viewers are more irritated with her desperate need to gain acceptance and attention more than anything. Still, despite her recent charades it has undoubtedly given the Cyrus brand more power than ever before.
Think about it: Before 2013, no one (and I mean, no one) was looking or expecting a full fledged Cyrus comeback, not even myself, I’ll confess. It wasn’t until she used the guise of a hip-hop maiden that she became as talked about as Selena Gomez or Justin Bieber.
Scandals about she and her future hubby Hemsworth splitting up for good broke out left and right, and at this point, I wouldn’t blame him if he left. Maybe that’s the reality check America has been waiting for to snap her out of this trance. Because like everyone else, I am also starting to think the Hemsworth brothers were right in believing that she probably isn’t the right girl for the Australian hunk.
Let’s be clear that this isn’t about her skin color, we all know she’s a white girl. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the genre appealing to white audiences. Skylar Grey, another white female in the industry, did a brilliant job of lending her voice and songwriting to some of hip-hop’s most celebrated tunes without going overboard. Remember “Love the Way You Lie” and “Coming Home?” Those were both credited to Grey. Cyrus, on the other hand, has nothing impressive to show but her ass… literally.
I never thought I’d see the day, but Cyrus has become a major nuisance to both me and the Twittersphere this year, and I fear this mysterious transformation will only leave her looking cheap and pitiful in the end.
What do you think about Cyrus’ efforts to merging into the same lane as Nicki Minaj?advice, Hip-Hop, Miley Cyrus, rachet
