Miley Cyrus is standing in solidarity with her fans.
Two days after the pop star released her album, Plastic Hearts, she responded to fans on Twitter who noticed that physical copies weren’t going to be in stock until December, affecting her first-week sales.
“My Target shipment got delayed for dec 15 … so it doesn’t count for first week sales,” wrote one fan, while another said, “No stores within 35 minutes of me have any copies & I live in atlanta that’s insane.”
Cyrus, 28, retweeted a post that displayed various fans’ troubles, beginning her reply, “My fans are everything to me & to know y’all are disappointed when going out to stores/calling/checking stock to be let down I am equally/if not more frustrated.”]
She went on to explain of the snafu, saying, “When choosing 11/27 THE SUGGESTED DATE for album release my team and I were never told major retailers don’t stock physical albums on Black Friday and won’t get copies of PH until a few weeks after release.”
“The packaging of the record is intimate, honest, and a visual reflection of the sound of my new record that I am so proud of,” Cyrus continued. “It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands!”
The singer ended her note by saying that despite her frustration, she has “outgrown blame,” as she considers it “a waste of time & energy.”
“This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my admiration for the record my collaborators & I have created,” Cyrus wrote, signing off with, “xxMC” and a skull-and-bones emoji.
