VIDEO: Miley Cyrus Has Never Listened to Jay-Z

VIDEO: Miley Cyrus Has Never Listened to Jay-Z-photo

Miley Cyrus has a confession to make—her hit single "Party in the U.S.A." isn't nearly as autobiographical as it may seem.

In the song, the Hannah Montana star famously sings about how her homesickness  and tension are alleviated when a Jay-Z song comes on the radio.

However, as it turns out—and you'd better sit down for this—such a scenario never occurred.

During a recent interview in Louisville, Kentucky, a reporter asked her which Jay-Z song had inspired the lyric, and Cyrus confessed,

"I don't know, I didn't write the song, so I have no idea. Honestly, I picked that song because I needed something to go with my clothing line. I didn't write it [and] I didn't expect it to be popular, originally. It was just something that I wanted to do and I needed some songs and it turned out for the best...I've never heard a Jay-Z song. I don't listen to pop music. ['Party in the U.S.A.'] is not even my style of music."

Well, you have to at least give her points for honesty. But what's next? Will she now tell us that she's never actually engaged in a hoedown throwdown?

Let us know in the comments section: Should Miley Cyrus stick to singing what she knows about?

    she has to pretend she likes pop to appeal to the little kids which make up most of her fan-base. she does make pop, but only cause it makes her money. shes got a business hunch, but sucks at music.

    If 'Party in the USA' ain't even your style of music then why did you choose it? the song definitely didnt go with your clothing line and i think that you wrecked the song, it just wasnt for you..

    This just proves more points how Miley Cyrus is a complete and utter tard'. Unlike her, Jay-Z is actually a respected artist with a TALENT who doesn't vie for attention from paparazzi etc. he is actually a musician.

    are you kidding me? miley didn't write "party in the usa"? im so surprised because it sounds like something she would've written about. but then again her dad has helped her out since she started 'hannah montana" and wrote most of her songs for her so i'm kinda not surprised now i guess? but if she didn't write it..who did? her dad? Miley only co-wrote two songs on her EP.

    Miley is going to do more country for her next album. That's what she said. Her recent EP wasn't her style of music and it was just to promote her clothing line. That's what she means about "I don't listen to pop music. ['Party in the U.S.A.'] is not even my style of music."

    Funny how she admits that in my city. My neighbor went to her concert too. Pssh. She should listen to pop, that is her genre.
