Miley Cyrus chalks her edgy new image up to youth and a willingness to experiment—"People just evolve and that's all that's happened to me," she said recently. But a few critics think otherwise, claiming that Miley thinks she's black.
After previewing her verse on "Ain't Worried About Nothin'" by French Montana (no relation to Hannah), the former teen star received a lot of backlash on Twitter. But not about the song... about her race.
"Hey Miley?" wrote one Twitter user, "You're not black. In fact, you're white. Just a friendly reminder!"
"Moths want to be butterfly's as much as Miley Cyrus wants to be black," wrote another.
After receiving thousands of comments on the video, Miley remembered that she can't be tamed—and told her 13 million followers how she really felt.

Since making her comeback with "We Can't Stop," Miley's been delving deeper into the hip hop scene: Jay-Z gave her a shout out on Magna Carta Holy Grail, she popped up in Big Sean's "Fire" video and booty-popping aficionado Juicy J said Miley's twerking was "the best." Black or white, that's a superior compliment.
