Miley Cyrus Responds to Jay-Z's "Twerk" Line on "Magna Carta Holy Grail"

Miley Cyrus Responds to Jay-Z's "Twerk" Line on "Magna Carta Holy Grail"

The minute everyone heard "Somewhereinamerica" off Jay-Z's latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, Miley Cyrus became a trending topic on Twitter. That's because Jay decided to close his verse on that song with the line, "Somewhere in America/Miley Cyrus is still twerking." Jay closes the song by seemingly encouraging Miley to continue to twerk, although it's not readily apparent on whether or not this is said sarcastically.

Regardless of whether or not Jay approves of Miley's twerking, everyone was expecting Miley to eventually respond to the line on Twitter, where she is incredibly active. And of course, she has done just that tonight.

Not only did Miley allude to "Somewhereinamerica," she also made a reference to her own widely-successful single, "Party In The U.S.A.," which famously featured the line "And the Jay-Z song was on." The line took on additional significance when it was discovered that Miley didn't really listen to Jay, and was not referring to a specific song with that line.

But what does Miley's tweet mean? Is she referring to her childhood ignorance of Jay and implying that she does not care for his commentary upon her personal life? Or is she giving a subtle compliment to Jay's current ubiquity now that the album has come out?

It's worth noting that Mike WiLL Made It, the producer of Miley's latest single, "We Can't Stop" and a friend of Miley's, has a production credit on Magna Carta Holy Grail. How's that for a coincidence?
