Miley Cyrus is not the little Disney Channel star that had all the little girls wishing they too could be Hannah Montana. The former actress and singer is now a grown woman, and like most stars who want so desperately to no longer be looked at as child stars, she’s drastically morphing into someone completely different in the public eye. Of course most of you have seen her twerk it out in YouTube videos, cut her hair, and even start hanging around some of rap’s biggest stars. But her new image has been the subject of lots of controversy. Even though Miley recently stated it’s not as deep as the critics are making it out to be and she’s not trying to be the”white Nicki Minaj,” the pop star is now raising some eyebrows because of some recent comments she made about Hip Hop’s own Lil Kim. She tells Billboard when naming her favorite female artists:
“In my past life, I feel like that was me, like Lil Kim is who I am, like, on the inside, and she just makes me happy listening to her music, and she is, like – I just love her.”
Of course she also showed Nicki Minaj some love, and says:
“You can’t just choose one. If you say Kim, then you have to say Nicki. And Nicki is now my Lil Kim, and the Lil Kim of my generation.”
Now of course Nicki and Lil Kim fans aren’t too thrilled about these comments, but Miley of course didn’t intend to relaunch the stan war and give her skeptics more ammunition considering they believe she’s trying to use the Hip Hop culture to make a comeback.
