Because you needed a pep talk on role models today from Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has, for better or for worst, become a star over the past 3 years. Behind her already astronomical visibility, the girl who became a star on Hannah Montana–Disney, not Migos–got with hit Hip-Hop producer Mike Will Made It, and dropped a debut album that sold fairly well, and produced two monster hits.
However, those aren’t the only things that made her a pop icon. Cyrus’ tendency to wear as little clothing as possible as often as possible, and her affinity for doing the unthinkable on large stages–she gave a sex doll a blowjob on stage once, and then there was that Robin Thicke thing–made Miley the topic of conversation whenever she went outside.
This time, Miley has chosen two of music’s most beloved stars, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift, as the target of a brief rant, taken from her Marie Claire cover story. According to Cyrus, it’s unfair that she gets looked down upon for her rampant nudity when Kendrick Lamar “raps about LSD” and Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video was about “violent revenge.”
On Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video: “I don’t get the violence revenge thing. That’s supposed to be a good example? And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my titties out? I’m not sure how titties are worse than guns.”
On sexism and her sexuality: “There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it. Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore.”
Of all the rappers to attack about drug use, Miley chose Kendrick Lamar, who recently made an entire music video staging a funeral for the popular MDMA drug “Molly.” Well done, Hannah.
