Miley Cyrus on her 'We Can't Stop' video

The 20-year-old star Miley Cyrus has caused some more controversy, by reportedly suggesting that music industry executives are too old and too Jewish to handle her career, the Daily Mail reported.

“It’s always weird when things are targeted for young people, yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old,” Cyrus told Hunger TV.

Her new video for We Can’t Stop features spankings, twerking (shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion), sexualized images involving hot dogs and french fries, the typical stuff your average Jewish music mogul just won’t approve.

“It can’t be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear.”

She also said: “At first, on paper, that video sounded insane. No one understood it, and I’m just like, Let me film it and then, if it doesn’t work out, you never have to trust me again — but if it works out you have to let me drive this ship.”

So Miley Cyrus thinks she’s smarter than the powers-that-be in the music business. But does it make her an antisemite? Is it now bad manners to call someone an old Jew? Tell us what you think…

  1. because to her they are the same, negative adjective. I think it is anti-Semitic on her part. And if she wants to be independent of the old Jewish men, then go all the way and break from your record label and create your own. Like a bad female dog, she's just biting the hand that feeds it, and feeling all awesome about being speaking truth to power. Grow up.

  2. Miley Cyrus' comments regarding 'old Jews running things' is most probably rooted in anti-Semitism, in my opinion. What amazes me is the following she gets for her 'art'. She is not very attractive nor is she very talented. She looks and acts more like a 'porn star wannabe' than a creative genius.

  3. Bad manners is her new self. As it is for too many others.
    Not anti-semitic.
    Sell your albums Miley and grow up. Then sell more albums.
    BTW – I'm an old Jew who couldn't tell anyone what the clubs want to hear. Good for me. Miley – In the end – it's all about good manners and being a positive force for the planet. Know you will do it right.

  4. What? There are no getiles in the music business? Why lay it on the “old” Jews? And here I am thinking that hot dogs are for eating. I must be an old Jew. Come to think of it I am.

  5. I agree, Abe! Too many people gang up on this girl. Let her follow her own way, I'm sure she will turn up o be ok… we all raised our middle finger to someone at one time or another, and yet no one tried to cut it off…

    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Some things should not be joked about. If yoi have a problem with that I recommend taking bits of sharpened pencils and shoving them in your nomular cavity while rubbing hot perigrine 200 on your tumplin.
