Vince Staples Thinks Miley Cyrus Should Apologize to Kendrick Lamar

Vince Staples has some words for Miley Cyrus regarding her recent Marie Claire interview where appears to confuse Kendrick Lamar for A$AP Rocky. Commenting on the sexism in the music industry, she says, “There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it. Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore.” (The song she’s referring to, as XXL points out, could be A$AP Rocky’s single “L$D.”)

In response, Staples told i-D magazine that the VMAs host should apologize to Lamar for her mix-up, saying, “I don’t f–k with Miley Cyrus. I don’t like what Miley Cyrus said about Kendrick Lamar. She needs to say sorry. It was very salty. Hasn’t she got some Disney money to spend? She should be very happy. I think she confused him with someone else.”

Here’s the rest of his statement: “She didn’t know who she was talking about. Kendrick Lamar doesn’t have a song about LSD — that’s A$AP Rocky. So is it either you don’t know what you’re talking about or is it all black people look alike? Either one is fine with me but shut the f–k up Miley Cyrus. I love Taylor Swift because she got a little bit of my publishing back with that whole Apple Music thing she did. Anyone who has a problem with Taylor Swift, I’m supporting her because I’m trying to buy a home right now.”
