Miley the Fraud -- I've Never Heard a Jay-Z Song

11/6/2009 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In her annoyingly catchy tune "Party in the U.S.A.," Miley Cyrus sings about "a Jay-Z song was on" -- just don't try asking her which one.



During an interview on Halloween in Kentucky, MiCy admitted the unthinkable: She's "never heard a Jay-Z song" in her life.

It only gets worse from there -- the prepackaged pop tart also tried convincing the interviewer she doesn't sing pop music and that it's "not even my style." Cue Amy Poehler & Seth Myers: Really?!?

The unbelievable statement is at the 3:15 mark. Thanks to Best Week Ever for pointing out the cringeworthy clip.

Do you mean to say that Miley actually writes her own songs, because I always thought a 16 yr old would hire someone to do that seeing as most of those kiddy pop songs are about love and no 16 yr old knows what true love is.

That is really messed up to sing a song and make money off of a song where you mention Jay Z but in reality have never heard one of his songs. Fake and Lame.

'Kay, I don't like Miley. I can't stand listening to her talk--she grates on my nerves. BUT she did not say "I don't sing pop music." She said, "I don't listen to pop music."

All she's basically saying is that she doesn't like ghetto music. Why would you expect a hot white girl from the south to listen to garbage by Jay-Z? She has a butler who looks like Jay-Z.

Young and stupid. Trying to act like this "hardened Diva" but just coming across like an "ungrateful idiot".

She said she doesn't listen to pop music, she didn't say she doesn't sing it. Though Jay-z isn't pop he is rap, I personally have never listened to a complete song of Jay-z's so its not that big of a deal that she doesn't know his songs. I do think they should have changed the name to someone she knows and looks up to. I like how honest she is. She pretty much says what she is thinking.

of course she wouldn't know...you think this talentless scrub that appeals to only 10 year olds would be able to write her own lyrics? HAHA duh, it's pop music, she doesn't write or participate in any of it.

How does she know that she'll never cover a Jay-Z song, when she has never heard one before? Hmmmmm.... Something doesn't add up.

She sounds so SILLY. She basically ruined all her chances of being deemed an authentic artist. Goodbye Miley. And i can recall an award show where Jay-Z was performing and she was nodding her head....So to say U never heard a song by him is pretty nonsense. Now all the negative people making this post about Jay-Z and HATING his music....Check out the FORBES list. He doesnt care if u think hIs music is GARBAGE. He's a Business man, a smart one i might add. Maybe if she did listen to some of his songs, she would learn a thing or two.
