Skulls made of French fries, candelabras lit by s’mores and sausage-stuffed piñatas are just three of the ways Miley Cyrus features food in the video for “We Can’t Stop,” which premiered today. Predictably, Miley’s twerking again – and less predictably, she’s doing it because alphabet soup told her to (just watch it).
Though the credits declare “Mike Will made it,” the video has Miley version 2013 all over it. By that, we mean a pimped-out party girl who’s about one thousand gyrations away from her former Disney guise. In a Q&A in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Miley doesn’t seem turned off by her new rep. “People refer to [cocaine] as Miley Cyrus,” she says. Her less-than-obscured pun on the drug molly in the lyrics point to her new persona, too: “You’re not allowed to say ‘molly’ on the radio, so it obviously says ‘Miley.’ I knew people were gonna wonder what I’m saying in that song,” she told Rolling Stone. Hey, it’s her party.
