Cyrus continued: “There are decades of inequality that I am aware of, but still have alot [sic] learn about. Silence is apart of the problem and I refuse to be quiet anymore. My words became a divider in a time where togetherness and unity is crucial . I can not change what I said at that time , but I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words caused. Simply said ; i f—ed up and I sincerely apologize  .  I’m committed to using my voice for healing , change , and standing  up for what’s right. Miley.”

Cyrus is currently promoting her "She is Coming" EP, which gets back to hip-hop a bit with collaborations featuring Swae Lee, Ghostface Killah, and Mike Will Made-It.

This isn’t the first time that Cyrus has apologized for her 2017 comments in Billboard. The star wrote a post on Instagram in which she blamed the outlet for focusing on sensationalism.

“Unfortunately only a portion of that interview makes it to print, & a lot of the time publications like to focus on the most sensationalized part of the conversation. So, to be clear I respect ALL artists who speak their truth and appreciate ALL genres of music,” the since-deleted post read in part (via Rolling Stone).
