It's her video, and she can make it as weird and dirty as she wants to. And boy, Miley Cyrus can do weird/dirty like no one's business! In this video for her latest single, "We Can't Stop," Cyrus continues her single-minded mission to obliterate any thought of her Hannah Montana past. Still think she's a Disney star? Well, watch this:
If you're not sure what all the… uh, imagery means, join the club. But videos are about vibes, not narratives. And this one's vibe seems to be: Immaturity rules! So does dry humping a cheap motel bed! And feeling up your girlfriend's breasts! And, and, and… oh! So hard to explain, this bizarre mixture of toddler entertainment and dirty sex! Frankly, it's just one, long, hyper-jittery, Miley Cyrus stream of consciousness. (Perhaps in Hell.) Want to know what Miley's thinking? (Are you sure?) Well, here are Miley's thoughts, in no particular order:
Don't you just love twerking in your underwear, while your best buds slap your backside and leer at the camera! (I bet Dad would disapprove, but it's my butt, and I can do what I want with it!)
Hey, look guys! I can chew gum and writhe on the bed at the same time! Don't miss the crucifix bobbing up and down on my cleavage. Cool rebel effect, huh? Only God can judge, y'all!
Isn't it so funny when you pretend to cut off all your fingers and then fake pink blood oozes out? Yeah, pretty cool! OK, I'm bored. Let's get back to some more soft porn shots on the bed!
Hey! I was thinking. You know what would be a cool way to meld childhood with grown-up sex play? I could totally make out with an almost-life-size Barbie! Look guys, we're Frenching in the pool!
Let's blow smoke from our privates! No, let's dress up as giant teddy bears! No, let's wrestle in our underwear! What else can we do? What else can we do? What else?! What else?!
People have accused Miley Cyrus of being a pot head, and she doesn't deny it. But this video makes us wonder whether it's something more than that.
