Miley Cyrus is singing about drugs, partying her nights away, and now apparently standing up for some twisted version of free speech.
The music video for the singer’s new album We Can’t Stop is currently being censored by MTV UK. Miley believes the video shouldn’t be censored because of the George Zimmerman verdict. Miley tells The Huffington Post:
“…I just think the world is so lame because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like [George] Zimmerman off on trial but you can’t have someone going like this [she stimulates oral sex gesture], that is so dumb to me. The world is such a f–ked up place the last thing people need to worry about is my cute little video for ‘We Can’t Stop,’ you know what I mean?”
In her new video, Miley Cyrus simulates oral sex, gyrates for the camera, and generally shows off a hard partying lifestyle. All of those acts led to the video being censored by MTV UK.
Miley tells the Daily Mail this is the image she has always been working towards and that she’s not worried about younger fans:
“I wasn’t really worried about it because I feel that time was something that I had to do what everyone has to do – work at something that you don’t necessarily love to get to be able to do what you do love,’ she admitted. I would say everyone has to start from the bottom, to get where they want to go and work on things they don’t really care about doing.”
Miley notes that Britney Spears and Madonna both worked in different times and that she is just trying to develop her own identity in a new age of music and social media expansiveness.
Do you think Miley Cyrus and other censorship should stop because of the George Zimmerman verdict? Yeah, us either.
