Months ago, I didn’t understand the increasing acceptance of Miley Cyrus. Her metamorphosis from Hannah Montana into twerking, tongue exposing sex symbol isn’t unique amongst Disney starlets. Our oversexed culture has created it, so the girls with limited parental guidance shouldn’t be to blame. Nevertheless, Cyrus’ non-surreptitious transformation has caught the attention of millions.
Earlier this year, Cyrus reached the top spot in the 2013 Maxim Hot 100. Her latest video for “Wrecking Ball” has already been viewed more than 16 million times in less than two days (Update: 46 million in two days). Americans are 12 times more interested in Miley Cyrus than Syria.
Anyway, here’s her video for “Wrecking Ball.” She’s 20 years old. She’s beyond Lady Gaga’s shock looks. This androgynous girl is incendiary and I love it. She’s not going through the motions. She’s just tired of being referred to as Hannah Montana. I’ve provided remixes below.
