Miley Cyrus accused of making 'anti-Semitic slip'

Miley Cyrus has been accused of making "anti-Semitic" comments.

The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker has caused fresh controversy by reportedly suggesting that music industry executives are too old and Jewish to oversee her career.

The 20-year-old star told Hunger TV: "With magazines, with movies, it's always weird when things are targeted for young people yet they're driven by people that are like 40 years too old. 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.

"I'm going out, I know what they want to hear. I know when you're in a club, what makes everyone go crazy and when the time is where everyone's like 'alright I'm going go get a drink'. I know when people walk off the dance floor and I know what's driving it so I've got to be the one doing it because they're just not in on what 20 year olds are doing."

The singer, who was first called out for the comments by Tabletmag.com, hinted that her record label and management were hesitant when she first suggested the concept for her 'We Can't Stop' music video.

She 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.'"

She added: "At the end of the day, I want people to buy my records. The more that they're wondering what the hell is she doing, the more they're going to want to listen to my record."

But she insisted that she didn't expect people to be shocked about her 'Wrecking Ball' video, in which she appears naked.

She said: "I'm surprised people are still shocked, I'm glad that tactic is still working because I expected people at some point just to not be shocked."
