Miley Cyrus Responds To Jay-Z’s Shout Out On “Somewhere In America”


Jay-Z comes correct with the pop culture references on his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The specific one that caught everyone by surprise was his shout out to Miley Cyrus. Yes, Hov stays in tune with current events.

In “Somewhere In America,” Jay raps, “When I was talking Instagram / Last thing you wanted was your picture snapped / Feds still lurking / They see I’m still putting work in / Cause somewhere in America / Miley Cyrus is still twerkin’, Ha!”

The mention is in light of Miley’s recent fascination with twerking, where a video showing off her dance moves in a unicorn suit went viral. As expected, the Hannah Montana star was honored to be noticed by Hov. She wrote on Twitter:

Miley alludes to her pop smash “Party In The U.S.A.,” which contained the lyrics about a Jay-Z song playing on the radio. Now that these two are buddies, can we expect a collaboration in the future?

    I remember her admitting to never have even listened to Jay-Z when she made that song.

    Miley probably doesn’t even understand the meaning of that line. Not to say the line was a diss to her, it wasn’t. Jay-Z’s basically saying that Black and Hip-Hop Culture have gotten so big, it’s even influencing teenage white kids just like some adults in white america feared it would. If our culture had no influence or impact, you wouldn’t see a country singer’s southern bell daughter twerking on stage with Juicy J.

      nope. non of that lol Miley =white girl Twerk +movement Miley cyrus is still twerking = Coke moving around america

      Very simple .

      • Elie Hegbe

        Jr Money is right…it had nothing to do with Miley Cyrus AT ALL

        • Mateo Rojas

          yeah that is because jay-z still deals with coke in 2013 and isn’t a music artist at all, so that line couldn’t be a double entendre. Nope its all just about coke. ;-) BMG™ Prodigy The meaning you got from that line ALL was just a BIG coincidence.

      • BMG™ Prodigy

        What you’re saying is true too, but the meaning I gave is as well, it’s a triple entendre. Jay has made complex lines like that for his whole career.

    • Hello

      Not a southern bell but Appalachian daughter, they’re the ones that sell meth, whiskey and grow tweed in their back yards.They’re the ghetto version of white people. Really Miley is just acting like the people that came before her.

  • zozo
