Miley Cyrus did not say, “Today I leave America and never come back,” despite a fake news report. Nor did the singer add that in 10 days she’ll be a British citizen. It’s all made-up. Gossip Cop can expose this latest fabrication.
The website Just News USA claims Cyrus just declared that she’s leaving the U.S. in response to Donald Trump’s presidency and has sworn she’ll “never come back” and will soon be a British citizen. Glaringly, the outlet doesn’t mention where or when Cyrus allegedly made this remarks. And a quick search online of those phrases will yield results from that blog and a few others of its ilk, but not from another reputable media organization. Of course, it’s because the outlet manufactured the fake quotations.
While it’s true that Cyrus posted on Instagram on March 1, 2016 that she was going to “move out da country” if Trump was elected, she’s since explained her remarks. At the time Cyrus made that comment on social media, she was upset that Trump was pulling far ahead of senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio in delegates needed to be nominated as the Republicans’ presidential nominee. But in a September 2017 interview with the music publication NME, Cyrus explained why she didn’t leave America after Trump was elected president .
Cyrus said, “I’m not [expletive] leaving the country, that’s some ignorant [expletive], that’s dumb.” She added, “That’s me abandoning my country when I think I’ve got a good thing to say to my country.” The singer further noted that it doesn’t really matter where she is because “my [expletive] voice is gonna be heard, and I’ll make sure of it.”
If anything, it should have been clear that Just News USA’s quotes were fake because they don’t contain any curses. Kidding aside, the website seems, of late, to be obsessed with Cyrus and her opposition to the president. Just 24 hours ago, Gossip Cop busted the very same outlet for fabricating an article that alleged Cyrus claimed Trump’s supporters were hurting her music career. In that bogus report, the blog maintained Cyrus said she’s no longer a top-selling artist because she was “sure that [Trump supporters] have something to do with this. The amount of hate that I receive is unbelievable.”
Much like that fabricated article, the latest one claiming Cyrus declared, “Today leave America and never come back,” is also a fabrication. The singer never said that, her camp assures Gossip Cop. Nor is Cyrus ready to party in the U.K. as a citizen.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
