Everyone seems to love hating Miley Cyrus after her very un-Disney like behavior over the past year. I get that people get all up in arms when a once sweet jean jacket-wearing girl turns into a latex crop top-donning freak, but everyone needs to comme des fuckdown, because Miley Cyrus is my hero. To all of Miley’s haters out there, this blogger wants to tell you how much she loves Miley.
1. She’s a White Girl Who Can Twerk
Most girls can’t actually twerk. You either can or you can’t. Your butt either jiggles like jello or it doesn’t. Twerking is a rare talent and if a girl has it, she’s probably not white. But Miley is the exception to this rule because she manages to basically unhinge her butt in her “We Can’t Stop” music video and gives hope to rhythm-less white girls, like myself.
2. She Can Actually Sing
People like to automatically brand pop singers as lip-synching auto-tune junkies, but Miley’s new album Bangerz completely debunks that claim. Songs on the album like “Wrecking Ball“, “FU“, or “#GETITRIGHT” show how Miley has a set of pipes that are a force to be reckoned with. And for those of you who still don’t believe me, check out Miley’s Backyard Sessions on YouTube, where she sings acoustic version of old country songs. Her version of “Lilac Wine” or “Jolene ” legit make me tear up. Oh, and let’s all not forget about how she birthed my favorite song ever: “Party In the U.S.A.”. You’re just lying to yourself if you say you don’t like that song.
3. She Looks Amazing, No Matter What
Everyone may hate Miley’s new style or hair-do, but I love it. No one in the world can pull off little blonde hair nuggets or a red G-string onesie except for Miley. If I wore that ensemble, I would look like a punk rock version of Ellen DeGeneres. Granted Miley looked amazing before with her long, dark hair, but Miley 2.0 is way more gorgeous than Miley Cyrus a la Hannah Montana. Also, if you watched her impersonate Michelle Bachmann on Saturday Night Live , Miley also manages to make sexy grandma clothes fashionable.
4. She Doesn’t Give a Flying F**K
If you hate Miley, well then too bad, because she doesn’t care what people think of her, and her recent behavior and new music is a testament to that. Her twerking up on Robin Thicke at the VMAs was just her way of saying that Hannah Montana was murdered by that foam finger. I wish I was cool enough to have a rebirth period like Miley, but let’s be honest, the biggest change us Terp girls experience is when we finally realize side bangs are a terrible idea, for everyone.
5. She Acts How a 20-Year-Old Girl Should
Everyone needs to stop saying that Miley is a ‘role model’, because she’s not and doesn’t want to be. Her days of being a goody two-shoes Disney Channel star are gone. She’s in the time of her life where she is allowed to act reckless, sing about her ex-boyfriend, and wear crazy ass, yet retro chic clothes, and I respect her for that. Hell, all twenty-year-old girls should go through a fearless, independent, crazy stage.
So basically all hail Miley, and let her do her ‘thang.
