Miley Cyrus' latest single is the final nail in the coffin containing her family-friendly image, as she sings about drugs and shaking it like she's at the strip club.
The 20-year-old pop star has been doing a bang-up job of making sure she severs all ties to her Disney past, and her new song, "We Can't Stop," is guaranteed to create controversy and make the parents of her younger fans outraged.
On the new song from her upcoming album, Cyrus sings about "dancing with molly," which is a slang term for MDMA, and makes an obvious reference to cocaine use when she sings, "Everyone in line in the bathroom/trying to get a line in the bathroom. "
Cyrus also sings about "getting turnt up," and shaking it like she's at the strip club.
Yes, this is the new Miley -- a reflection of who she is right now.
"Everyone always judges and says what they want, but my fans have really stood by me no matter what I’ve been through and this is a song that says where I’m at in my life right now," she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Monday.
Cyrus is no stranger to controversy, and she definitely anticipated the song rubbing some people the wrong way -- so much so, that she even sings, "Remember only God can judge us/ Forget the haters cause somebody loves ya," and later sings:
"It's our party we can do what we want to/It's our house we can love who we want to/It's our song we can sing if we want to/It's my mouth I can say what I want to."
It's hard to believe that just a few years ago the singer practically apologized after she was caught smoking what she claimed was salvia, telling Marie Claire magazine, "I'm not perfect. I made a mistake ... I'm disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans."
UPDATE: A rep for the song's producer Mike WiLL Made It told TMZ that Cyrus isn't singing about MDMA, because she sings "dancing with Miley," not "dancing with Molly." And as for when Cyrus sings about "trying to get a line in the bathroom" the rep wouldn't confirm if she was referring to cocaine, but that one really speaks for itself.
This all seems quite suspicious since Cyrus can clearly be heard pronouncing the word "molly" and the song makes far less sense to have to sing about herself in the third person.
