Giant teddy bears, women twerking, someone seductively rubbing slices of white bread all over their face and neck. Former Disney Channel star, 21 year-old Miley Cyrus’ music video “We Can’t Stop” is all sorts of confusing. But why are we so obsessed? And do not say you aren’t because, you’re reading this, so you are. Are we obsessed because we feel wild, young, and like we just want to let go of everything and be free? Or is it because we’re obsessed with the bizarre creativity that Cyrus brings to her music videos?
We love Miley, then we hate her, then we love her. Is Miley falling off the wagon? Or is she in total control of every aspect of her life? What is Cyrus up to? Miley Cyrus said in her MTV documentary “Miley Cyrus: The Movement” that the movement is a growth, it’s a change. It’s not just a “transition” it’s not genuine. It’s about “taking over the world.”
Miley is not a 14 year old girl anymore and perhaps she’s trying to prove it to the world. She’s a 21 year old woman who can do what she wants. If she wants to make a music video of her at a wild party grabbing herself and with twerking teddy bears, she will. She’s Miley Cyrus, and she can’t stop. So stop the hating, and go with the flow.
