Miley, girl, I’m trying to stick with you. I want to be there for you through this difficult time but you’re not making it easy, especially when you think your new music is great and start talking shit about your old stuff, which was POP GOLD. Hello, ‘Party In the USA’? ‘See You Again’? ‘The Climb’? I don’t think I need to go on here.
“Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it’s so irritating to me because I can’t just erase that stuff and start over,” she says. “My last record [2009's EDM-inflected Can't Be Tamed] I feel so disconnected from-I was 16 or 17 when I made it. When you’re in your 20s, you just don’t really know that person anymore.”
Cyrus herself says, “I want to start as a new artist. I consider my upcoming album my first, really.”
Well, Miley, that’s called growing up. I love that she acts like all of these realisations are brand new to the human race and no one else has ever been through them. Everyone thinks the teenage version of themselves is totally cornball – that’s just the way these things work. I don’t expect her to think her old shit was amazing (it was pretty gold standard in places, as far as pop music goes) but don’t hate on it, girl. Those songs and your past are the reason you can afford to make shitty “music” now and sit on your ass doing Molly and smoking weed while you “find yourself“.
Now, let’s relive ‘Party In the USA’ and try to forget that locker room interview she did after this came out when she said she has never listened to Jay-Z and didn’t know anything about rap because she’s so country. LOL!
