Why Miley Cyrus fans are asking her to quit her label? Here's what happened to her album 'Plastic Hearts'
'This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my admiration for the record my collaborators and I have created'
Miley Cyrus took to her social media on November 29 to explain a recent debacle over 'Plastic Hearts', regarding its physical copies. Her latest and long-awaited project 'Plastic Hearts' has a surprisingly limited amount of physical copies compared to what is to be expected and fans have been sharing their complaints on Twitter. The 'Prisoner' singer shared several tweets from disgruntled fans in a screenshot, posted on her Twitter account.
"My target shipment got delayed for dec 15.... so it doesnt count for first week sales x," says a fan while another took aim at Cyrus' label RCA Records: "@RCARecords I've already gone to 5 @targets and NONE of them are carrying @MileyCyrus' new album #PLASTICHEARTS are you trying to sabotage her career like you've done with @BritneySpears' career?"
One fan wrote, "No stores within 35 minutes of me have any copies & I live in atlanta that's insane... /:" to which another replied, "SAMEE.... idk if you've checked a barnes & nobles in atlanta that says there's 1 on hold but if you have that was me." "Yup. Mine havent shipped nor are the stores here getting copies," says another fan.
Cyrus linked a tweet from one fan who asked, "HOW does one label f**k up this bad." In her response, she opened up by sharing that she understands and also feels frustrated: "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."
Cyrus explained, "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 wouldn'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." She noted, "It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands!"
In her conclusion, she said, "I've outgrown blame. It's 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. xxMC." Check out the full post below.

One fan shared, "u deserve to be signed to a label that works hard for u and not fail u like rca continues to do... we love u so much thank u for giving us ur best album.
