If you needed any evidence that Miley Cyrus thinks we’re all voluptuous, booty-shaking vixens, look no further.

In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, she expounds on how her body is not like ours. She says: “People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever. I’m like, ‘I’m 108 pounds! I know!’ Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that s–t again.”

If Miley is ever confused about her race, all she has to do is look at her flat butt and skinny frame and she’ll remember her skin color. Please help me try to find the logic in that.

Miley continues by claiming that the criticism of her performance reeks of gender discrimination:

“No one is talking about the man behind the ass. 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.”

She also talked about how hypocritical America is:

“America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong. 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–k.’ And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘f–k’? 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. [...] Brooke Shields was in a movie where she was a prostitute at age 12!”

Well, the good news is Miley won’t twerk again. If only she’d stop doing interviews…

  • Jaslene

    I actually thought she made some good points.

  • Steppa

    Well she didn’t lie about the Breaking Bad/molly bit, did she?

    there is no need to ever print anything else about miley cyrus ever again we are not falling for this clutch.

    silly race baiting article bout nothing.

    This child needs some old church lady to lay hands on her. Just sad.

    Miley Cyrus is just a puppet. She is controlled by egomaniac designer Marc Jacobs. His best buddy Terry Richardson directed her latest video clip which was the idea of Jacobs. He is a cruel manipulator who has a great influence on stars like Lady Gaga, Kanye West. He told Miley to act like that at the VMA. Jacobs tortures a talented young girl called Angel Barta. He stole her ideas and sexually harassed her. Read the details on: styleangelique blogspot com

    I interpreted the quote to mean she’s 108 pounds and that’s why she’s got a flat ass. Not that she thinks all black women have big behinds.

    just like any celebrity, if you stop talking about her, she’ll go away.

  • sixfoota

    Now, I may be giving her too much credit, but it seems like what she meant was she’s a petite woman, lacking curves, so it’s ironic that folks are comparing her to sistas, who, more the norm than not, are curvacious. She just ain’t too bright to articulate so yeah, that ish came out all wrong.

    And before the PC police come & get me, I mean being curvacious is part of our makeup. Always has been. Our muscle mass in itself, as black folks, is different than folks of European-descent so naturally, we’re thicker, a bit more curvacious. Of course this is not truth for 100% of us, but more of us than not.

    TWERKING IS NOT BLACK CULTURE, where do people get this idea this is not black culture ugh….

  • http://twitter.com/palmthreez ChonTeeeeeeeLL!! (@palmthreez)

    ..the U.S. is so culturally lost…all black girls don’t have big buts and all black women are not volumptuous…Once the U.S. realizes that its no such thing as skin color that determines who u are but your values (aka culture) than maybe we can move on from nonsense comments like her. iCant b mad @her or others for how they think it is the way they were trained to think unfortunately…

    –Yeah, Black men put her on Disney Channel…

  • Anthony

    Please cite some examples of black men supporting Miley Cyrus. She certainly is not physically the type of white woman that is popular with black men. I know I am not in touch with what the young men are into, but Cyrus ain’t Kim K.

  • Anthony

    I hope this is the last piece that Clutch runs on Cyrus. She is good at r&b/hip hop and she is not even cute. She is even worth ridiculing anymore.

  • 9Boots

    They are behind her current album and gave her “the hood pass”. Where do you think all the discussion about blackness is coming from. Don’t you know if they would not have cosigned her then her only option would’ve been to stay pop like Katy Perry or go the Pink route.

  • Anthony

    I meant to say she is not good at r&b/hip hop.

  • Anthony

    James is not saying he wants to slap her or that he wants a man to slap her. I think he is hoping another woman “lays hands” on her. I guess a woman hoping that she is slapped would be good?

    I can’t see anybody taking this article or the responses too seriously.

  • http://gravatar.com/kmichelpress K. Michel

    If anyone is to blame it’d be her father for not steering her in the healthy direction that she could’ve been heading in. You should think about why that never crossed your mind, my dear.

    As for “sellout Black men”, you can’t expect anything out of riff-raff because, well; they’re lost causes. Try not to confuse a man who’s a lost cause …with a man that shares his skin color.

  • JS

    Kanye West, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, Mike WiLL (Made It)… list goes on. Miley is cited saying Kanye bought her 5 pairs of Celine slippers when she mentioned her 1 pair was broken and refers to him as her “homie.” She has been pictured hanging with Wiz Khalifa multiple times. Juicy J actually permitted her ratchet ass to twerk on stage at his own concert and Mike WiLL produced her busted “We Can’t Stop.” Need I say more?

  • Natalie B.

    Brilliant move by The Man. Instead of continuing to use blatant racism, he is once again is elevating a talentless, entitled white girl to a platform for all of the world to gaze upon. Any criticism of this white girl will be cast as “jealousy and insecurity” by The Man and the black male minions that are hyping this white girl that he has made famous. If we are silent about her antics, she gets away with it, if we call her on it we’re mad.

    Well played, Mr. Man, well played.

    I’m so got damn tired of this girl. She’s like a roach, she’s everywhere and there is no sign of getting rid of her and she keeps on multiplying. I wish that Clutch wouldn’t feed into it and just stop posting anything Miley related to the site.

    Maybe if we stop talking about her she’ll go away.

  • 9Boots

    My dear, I know the difference between a lost man and a non lost man. So those that are not lost or a sellout black man should not get offended if it does not apply to them. However, the fact does not change, it was black men that cosigned her.

  • 9Boots

    @ Perspective

    Let’s act like there aren’t tons of pictures out there with Miley surrounded by black men (given her the hood pass) at all sorts of parties and clubs. Yep, I guess Miley has been known to hang around black men for the last three years and hire them for producers. This is not a new image and brand she is selling it’s been that way for years. NOT (side eye)

  • http://gravatar.com/kmichelpress K. Michel

    “However, the fact does not change, it was black men that cosigned her.” (9Boots)

    Some Black men cosigned her, sure. Some Black women twerked on the same stages and videos with her, and that’s also true. But I did no such co-signing, and I’m guessing that you didn’t either.

    I keep hearing “if it doesn’t apply, let it fly” …but the saying doesn’t make sense to me.

    Why do we need to “claim” the basest factors of our society because we share a skin color? So what Juicy J cosigned her? What’s that got to do with you or me? Juicy J’s not in my community.

  • 9Boots

    You and I both already know we do not have the option of separating ourselves “from the others” whether it is positive behavior or negative. It always trickles down, and now we (black women) have to deal with this his broad mentioning black women. So if I want to address the genesis of this new Miley, I have every right to do so since it affects me.

  • http://gravatar.com/noirluv45 noirluv45

    “You and I both already know we do not have the option of separating ourselves “from the others” whether it is positive behavior or negative.” That maybe true, but we have the option to not buy into it. Yes, White folks lump us together. They’ve been doing that since the beginning of time, but so what? Who are they? Many are the thieves, murderers and rapists of the world. Many are vermin, and what we need to quit doing is feeding that vermin by giving to the “We are all one” nonsense. I’m sick of being held accountable for what other’s who share my ethnicity do, especially when it doesn’t apply to anyone else in the world.

    It’s not up to us to change, but them. It’s their ignorance that has cast that b.s. upon us.

  • HTown

    I don’t understand why so many people are against this woman. She is not hurting anyone and seems to enjoy having fun and being young.

    I’m more annoyed at the attacks on her body. I think her body looks great! She has a flat tummy and no cellulite. I don’t understand why her not having a big butt is a bad thing. She’s young and has plenty of time to get curves and if she doesn’t, so what? Look how Kelly Rowland is looking now a days. She is looking like a straight up brickhouse!! It takes some longer than others. And some of the biggest critics of Miley’s body are women!!Yet if anything negative is said about Gabby Sidibe’s body those same women will cry foul..

    I just wonder if a lot of the outcry is some subconscious need to shelter and protect the “innocent little white girl.” Far fetched? Maybe, but I can’t understand why people are so upset over her behavior. If this was Keke Palmer would people want to protect her as much? I really don’t think people would care as much.

    “You and I both already know we do not have the option of separating ourselves ‘from the others’ whether it is positive behavior or negative.” (9Boots)

    Who says?

    I know what my options are. When I look into the mirror I don’t see a law-breaker, or a loser. You, as a Black woman, don’t have to deal with Miley Cyrus because I don’t see her dysfunction when I converse with you.

    If I can separate you from Miley then clearly others can as well.

  • CAsweetface

    I sincerely wish everyone would stop talking about this no talent hack. I don’t even want to utter this race appropriators name. I hate giving people like this attention that they do not deserve. Her face and and fake existence annoy me beyond belief…ok tis all…carry on.

  • RJ

    Sorry, but it is black culture. We cannot dismiss something because we do not like it. Facts are facts. It started in New Orleans and black women started it.

    The larger point is that black women are put down (and I too find it low and in extremely poor taste) but we have to ask why this silly child and so many others keep digging their hands in our culture and make money off of it.

    Andy Cohen became a rich man because the Real Housewives of Atlanta shot through the roof. It remains the most popular series. Why is that?

  • Lya

    I like Miley. I don’t see why people are hating on her so much. Some of these comments sound petty. There is a rise of black men with white women. She has not dated a black man so why are people so upset. She makes music. She is just trying to be a star. People saying that she should be slapped really.

  • Anon

    So, my not being fat, and not having a big “booty” means that I’m not black? THIS is what happens when only one image of back women is promoted. Yeah, okay. I’ll take my perky 34-C cup and single digit dress size somewhere else then.

  • Anon

    So we’re all big-booty’ed fat chicks? Cause that’s what I saw.

  • Pseudonym

    @myblackfriendsays: I agree! Most comments I have seen by black people about the Miley Cyrus bit have been about how she’s skinny with a flat butt (which apparently prohibits one from attempting to twerk?…) and I think that’s where the comment came from.

  • Dave Miller

    Please leave black men out of this. There are no black male Miley fans running around. Disney put her on and her fan base are mostly white teens.

    If you want to put black men down, try another issue.

  • Dave Miller

    A couple of black male producers is not THEY. What you’re talking about is merely a business relationship. She is PAYING these dudes for their talents. Her hiring a few black male producers does not equal mass support from black men.

    Those dudes are doing their jobs and getting paid.

  • Dave Miller

    Everyone co-signed her, starting with Disney.

    I agree with those who said let’s never have another post about Miley Cyrus, I got bored reading halfway through.

  • lea

    whatever land j boog, chingy, heck even afro man, can we please send her there. i really don’t want to hear about her minstrel show antics

  • LOL

    Mike WiLL is a super hot producer right now he’s worked with everyone hot in the commercial hiphop scene currently. I’m kinda surprised you dont know.

    The point is ratchet or no these are Black men supporting Miley. I was simply pointing out that contrary to Anthony’s post there are plenty Black men willing to sell out supporting Miley because shes a “cute little white girl” and they give her a pass.

  • Gre

    Jazz, R&B, soul food, the literature of Langston Hughes are black culture. Twerking? I guess we are taking liberty with the word “culture”. LOL.

  • Carol

    @ Anon

    I may not like Miley but I doubt that’s what she was saying. You just wanted a place to show your insecure issues of women different than you.

    I know I am about to contribute to it but it funny how all her post get a lot of comments. I understand that people debate back and forth but it never fails. Doesn’t matter what urban blog you go on, it’s the same story. I mean we say we want her to go away yet we keep giving her post hits which make blog owners keep posting about her.

  • MimiLuvs

    What’s with the tongue thing?

  • donnadara

    When I was her age, I weighed about 110 pounds. Do I need to turn in my black card?

  • Child, Please

    Being that person said some, I think they’re referring to Miley’s comments on how Robin Thicke isn’t being talked about when they were both on stage while she was twerking – and on him no less – and the comments on Breaking Bad. I thought she made a good point about her performance as well. RT could’ve moved, but people for some reason felt sorry for him and Paula Patton – yet, no one feels sorry that Robin Thicke’s wife bared her tits to the world in 2 Guns. See how that works? As far as her Breaking Bad comments, I’ve always taken issue with how the FCC regulates some words but not all – the b-word and n-word are OK, but some other words aren’t. It makes you wonder about priorities. Though one might argue one show is purely fictional and her televised performance isn’t, nor does it have a set rating.

  • Aria

    I feel like Ms. Cyrus is now grabbing for past events to justify her actions. Its annoying. Instead of being mature about her choices she points fingers at other people and shows, etc. claiming “unfair treatment” in the industry. I guess she wasn’t paying attention to all of the artists who have been in the music industry longer than her who have been criticized and put through real struggles. Being branded as the “unruly twerking flat booty white girl” is not a real struggle. She needs to hush.

  • Eduardo

    I refuse to post a comment in this article, I…

    …damn.

  • Deal-n-Truth

    It’s pretty obvious that the mention of her name attracts readers just in the same manner many black bloggers featured the Kardashian’s and that’s why they write about her. I agree, just stop featuring stories about Miley.

    Stop making stupid famous who don’t need the platform. Give some shine to our less popular entertainers who could use the promotion instead of hyping up those who have been crowned as popular.

    At one time the black media promoted everyone, now they’re just like the white mainstream media and only promote or mention an individual unless they have been deemed as noteworthy or popular. Define your own imagery.

    Hmm not sure why may name came up as “LOL”… but that was me who responded.

    Please put your tongue back in your mouth. Thanks!

  • Brian

    Everything Miley said in this was true. Twerking requires a big butt. Miley doesn’t have one. Twerking was created and popularized in rap videos featuring black female dancers. Miley is white. Miley watched a person literally create and consume illicit drugs on television, which is fine with the FCC, but saying a simple word is censored. That’s fundamentally absurd. What are people upset about exactly?

    “I feel like Ms. Cyrus is now grabbing for past events to justify her actions. Its annoying…”

    IMO, I thought that this ‘twerking-hanging out with rappers-singing about popping Molly’ Miley was an act of trying to show her ex-fiancee that she is better off without him.
    In other words, she’s the woman that starts sleeping around with her ex’s acquaintances (usually, it is the ex that does the dumping) because she thinks that it will make him mad. But in the end, she is the one that looks like the fool.
    Plus, I think her PR rep probably gassed her head up by telling her that she will receive so much press for it.

    i think you read into her comment too much. Its true that people make fun of her flat butt and she was just saying she knows she’s not black AND she knows she has a flat butt as well but she’s not going into any stereotype with this trying to be racist. Thats just how i feel about it…

  • Lindsey Moreno

    This fucking article is so fucking racist!

  • kali

    Twerking is stupid. It’s not dancing, imo. I don’t care for Miley or her music, but she at least won’t blow up like a balloon in a few years, or after she pops out a couple of kids, like these people with huge asses will.

  • Andy

    This is a very disgusting article. It’s sad to see everyone believing these stereotypes that label black women. Miley a white female made twerking “Famous” but it was old and is just dancing. She isn’t really made fun for it Miley is just called out for acting “black” minus that she actually does appropriate black culture. People are claiming she’s acting black because of her “vulgar dancing” and her becoming a “hoodrat” .

  • Andy

    Not to mention she uses black culture to stay relevant….
