Miley Cyrus Says Her Bangerz Tour is Not Racist or Exploitative
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.01.2014



In an interview with MSNBC's Ronan Farrow, controversial singer Miley Cyrus defended her Bangers tour and denied the tour was racist and exploitative.

Speaking to Farrow, who also profiled Cyrus for W magazine, Cyrus stated: "It's really funny how serious people take it. And they're like, 'You're racist'. And I'm like, 'Really?' We're like a bunch of kids dancing around in, like, bears, but we don't do choreography. They're just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they're awesome dancers like just on their own. It's not me telling them how to be. We're making them feel sexual and beautiful."

Speaking about one of the specific dancers, Cyrus also added, "We're all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance - she's actually an awesome dancer."

A former backup dancer for Cyrus, Hollis Jane, who was spanked by Cyrus during her MTV VMA performance last year, stated at the time: "I was a bear in Miley Cyrus' VMA performance and it was my first time doing anything like that... anything where I was being used because of my height, not because of my talent. And I will be the first one to tell you that standing on that stage, in that costume was one of the most degrading things I felt like I could ever do.''

Jane later clarified the remark and said she doesn't blame Cyrus. However, Jane did say that "little people need to stop being seen, in my opinion, in the media as jokes."
