Singer Miley Cyrus says she won't be leaving the United States just because of President Donald Trump and will rather stay on as long as she has a platform to speak out against him.
However, it has been months since Trump was inaugurated in January (17) and Miley has no intention of leaving, but she is reminded of her comments every day on social media.
To NME.com, the singer said, "I'm not f**king leaving the country, that's some ignorant s**t, that's dumb".
'I didn't leave the country.
"Because that's me abandoning my country when I think I've got a good thing to say to my country", she added. I hear every day on my Instagram, 'Just leave already!
It has been remembered by many because of its controversial music video, in which Miley rides naked on a wrecking ball, but the 24-year-old has more regrets about the lyric content of the song than the video. When are you going to leave?' Does it really matter where I am? Because wherever I am, my f*cking voice is gonna be heard, and I'll make sure of it. She recently told Billboard that she wanted to be able to reach out to her more conservative fans and be taken seriously when she talks politics.
Earlier this year, during an interview on USA radio's Zach Sang Show, Miley admitted she's "never living (the video) down", adding she didn't realize at the time that she would forever be known as the girl who rode a wrecking ball naked. "Because a rainbow's not a rainbow without all the different colours".
