Miley Cyrus Says Jay-Z Shout Out is "Win Win Forrrrrr Me"

Miley Cyrus had some positive Twitter thoughts regarding Jay-Z's shout out in Magna Carta Holy Grail track "Somewhere in America." Specifically: "That's a win win forrrrrr me."

HOVA mentions the "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" singer in the following verse on the track:

“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!”

We are guessing this was a reference to the now ubiquitous (and admittedly kinda amazing) video of Miley twerking her brains out in floppy unicorn suit. Watch it here! Seriously, no one's looking and we know you want to see it again.

There has been debate on whether or not said shout out was a direct insult or a flattering pop culture nod, but Cyrus seems to be pretty happy about the whole thing either way. 

On the day Magna Carta dropped, she tweeted:

"Somewhere in America a Jay Z song is onnnnnn 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸"

And later, followed that up with the "win win" declaration.

Miley was, of course, referencing her 2009 single "Party In the U.S.A" which contained the unforgettable lyrics:

“My tummys turnin and I’m feelin kinda home sick/Too much pressure and I’m nervous,/That’s when the taxi man turned on the radio/and a Jay-Z song was on/and the Jay-Z song was on/and the Jay-Z song was on”

We're not sure whether Jay remembered this, but at the time, the former Disney star admitted to not ever having heard a Jay-Z song. Stating, "I don’t know, I didn’t write the song, so I have no idea." Which is fair enough, few budding popstars do write their own lyrics. 

But we would like some clarification from Camp Jay or Camp Miley as to exactly where these two stand. BFFs full of mutual admiration or passive aggressive haters who like to poke fun at each other on the DL?

Whatever guys, I guess we'll just go back to watching that unicorn twerking video again.
