Miley Cyrus may not be “impressed” with her 2013 hit Wrecking Ball, but she’s grateful nonetheless!
When asked about her sledgehammer-licking days, The Voice judge said:
“I should be grateful every fucking day for that song, and I am. I think people look at things that they’ve done and there is this sense of shame, or ├óΓé¼╦£I wish I wouldn’t have done that’ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ not because I’m naked, by the way. It’s because I feel like I’m in a deeper songwriting place.”
“Lyrically, I’m less impressed with that song right now. I feel like it doesn’t reflect who I am now, but that’s fine because it’s not supposed to. I’m sure I’ll say the same thing about this record at some point.”
“For Bangerz I was so one way, and I did that on Dead Petz too. ├óΓé¼╦£Malibu’ and ├óΓé¼╦£Younger Now’ are obviously two very different visuals in a way, but what binds them together is that they are both me. Now, I think I have more of an open mind … I don’t have to be so locked into myself because then I’m putting those walls and borders around myself that I tell everyone else not to give in to.”
One track in particular that embraces her new style is one Miley wrote with her godmother Dolly Parton called Rainbowland:
“One line is such a Dolly lyric ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it says, ├óΓé¼╦£We are rainbows, me and you, every color, every hue.’ It’s about all these different races and genders and religions, if we all did come together to create and said, ├óΓé¼╦£Hey, we’re different, that’s awesome, let’s not change to be the same, but let’s come together anyway.’ Because a rainbow’s not a rainbow without all the different colors.”
Similarly, Inspired was written for Hillary Clinton:
“I’m not fighting fire with fire, hate with hate ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I’m fighting hate with love. I’m doing a concert this week in Vegas and for ├óΓé¼╦£Party In the USA’ the screens will say ├óΓé¼╦£education,’ ├óΓé¼╦£healthcare, ├óΓé¼╦£equality’, ├óΓé¼╦£justice’, ├óΓé¼╦£freedom’, ├óΓé¼╦£liberation’, and ├óΓé¼╦£expression.’ These things are what make up our country. It’s not a party in the USA if it’s filled with hate, discrimination, walls, [and] violence.”
With everything going on, the songstress said you won’t catch her running from the U.S. now:
“I’m not leaving the country, that’s dumb. Because that’s me abandoning my country when I think I’ve got a good thing to say to my country. And trust me, I hear every day on my Instagram, ├óΓé¼╦£Just leave already! When are you going to leave?’ Wherever I am, my voice is going to be heard, and I’ll make sure of it.”
Loud and clear, bb!
