Miley Cyrus: I AM Singing About Doing Ecstasy in We Can’t Stop!
Are we learning more about what Miley Cyrus does when she parties in the USA?
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Miley admits that she is in fact singing about ecstasy use in her new hit song, "We Can't Stop."
Miley is addressing the true meaning of an oft-debated line in the popular song, as the media has wondered whether she sings "dancing with Miley" or the more-scandalous "dancing with molly," which is a term for ecstasy.
Miley had previously claimed to Rolling Stone that she sings "Miley" in the line: "I have an accent! So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly.' You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says 'Miley.'" Uh, that seems like questionable logic, but okay.
However, Miley is now coming clean about what she's really saying.
"It depends who’s doing what," she now tells the Daily Mail. "If you’re aged ten, it’s 'Miley'; if you know what I’m talking about, then you know. I just wanted it to be played on the radio, and they’ve already had to edit it so much."
"I don’t think people have a hard time understanding that I’ve grown up," Miley adds. "You can Google me and you know what I’m up to — you know what that lyric is saying."
So there you have it. If you're eleven years old and up, Miley isn't saying "Miley." But we give her kudos for managing to slip the drug reference past the radio censors.
Now if only we could have someone explain to us the meaning of her wacky music video for the song. Like, what's up with that hot-dog piñata? Do hot-dog piñatas really exist? And if so, where can we get one?
