Jay-Z Thinks Miley's Twerking Business is Kind of a Joke These Days, Too

7/5/2013 9:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
What's one of the funniest things you'll hear all day? Well, this song, "Somewhereinamerica," which is off Jay-Z's new album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," and mainly, because it seems to be poking fun at Miley Cyrus and her incessant twerking and her incessant talking about twerking, which is probably even worse than the actual twerking itself. Jay-Z feels our pain, guys, and he is a lyrical genius, don't you know. Just because he's married to the Queen Bey doesn't mean we can't take him seriously, and that's the truth. 

Here's the excerpt from the song, and then the actual song itself. You decide if he's laughing at her or just "returning" the shout-out that she gave him on "Party in the USA" (LOL), which went something like, "And the Jay-Z song was on/ And the Jay-Z song was on/ And the Jay-Z song was on." (Something of note? Miley did an interview back in 2009 saying that she'd never even heard a Jay-Z song before, lolz.)

Get ready for it, because here it is: 

When I was talking Instagram/ Last thing you wanted was your picture snapped/ Feds still lurking/ They see I'm still putting work in/ Cause somewhereinamerica/ Miley Cyrus is still twerkin', ha!/ Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk/ Twerk, Miley, Miley, twerk/ Twerk, Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley, twerk/ Twerk, yeah, ugh-huh/ Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley/ Only in America.

wow! I can't believe how many news outlets totally missed this. He is NOT dissing her but rather giving her props. As you may recall the all American Miley Cyrus gave shout outs to Mr. Jay-z in her song "Party in the USA" which I think most of us where surprised to learn that Miley was a fan. Jay-z returned the love by mentioning her in his new song. Drawing attn to her latest obsession of "tweaking". Give her more then a few bars of accolades and ending it brilliantly with "Only in America". See the connection tards? hmmm.

I wonder if I could get a job like this. Writing stupid stuff, trying to make up news where there isn't any... and get paid for it. Sounds good to me.

Seriously. This website talks more about Miley's twerking than anywhere else. You guys are the ones that care. Ridiculous. Way to pull a story out of nothing too. Morons.

actually Miley did an interview where she said she never even heard any JZ songs in 2009 when her song came out so I don't think she's a fan :S

Not really a diss, but not giving her props either. The point is "only in America...Miley Cyrus twerking is news"; especially since black girls have been twerking since the 80's.

When I was talking Instagram/ Last thing you wanted was your picture snapped - he's talking about coke here

They see I'm still putting work in/ Cause somewhereinamerica/ Miley Cyrus is still twerkin' - he's saying he's still moving the "white girl(another coke reference)" and she may or may not be using it(coke)since she stay hinting at drug use.

Not really an insult but he's not giving her props either. Miley isn't a fan, she hasn't heard any of his songs. To be honest, he's more making fun of America's fixation of her twerking, like it's a massive deal that Miley's shaking her ass in front of a camera (not implying anything about Miley herself, just saying).

So what Miley's twerkin'... why doesn't he make fun of their buddy Gwyneth attempting to dance at his shows! Get over yourself, Jay!

Miley said she was a HUGE Radiohead fan too, even though she didn't know any of their music. YOu're supposed to like Radiohead and Jay-Z and say so. I take issue with the description of Jay-Z as some poet or lyrical genius. I defy anyone here to post some Jay-Z lyrics that aren't laughable.....but if you repeat the hype enough, I guess it's true.
