I’ve been playing the latest Miley Cyrus song “We Can’t Stop” on repeat for weeks now and my dog Lucca is starting to get really, really annoyed. Luckily, her ears perked up when I put on this dog-inspired remake of the song by Maltey Cyrus called “We Can Bark.” Says Lucca: “This version is much better, Mom.” [The Pet Collective]
Unlike Amelia, I’ve yet to hop aboard the Miley train. It’s not that I actively dislike her, but my takeaway from her whole Disney girl-turned-twerker metamorphosis is that girlfriend is trying way, way too hard. (Call me hyper-critical, and oh, I am, but I’ve never fancied a pothead who goes around constantly broadcasting how much pot they smoke, even if it’s pot they smoke with Snoop Dogg.) But the biggest bone I’ve got to pick with Ms. Cyrus is how she wants so badly for us to know and accept that she is hip-hop now, and in reassuring us over and over again that she is hip-hop, she keeps putting her hip-hop foot right in her hip-hop mouth. Case in point? When asked by Billboard.com to list her top five favorite female musicians, she had this to say about the no-no-notorious Lil Kim: “In my past life, I feel like that was me. I feel like Lil Kim is who I am on the inside.” Say it with me — guuuuuuuuurl.
I love people that are obsessive and detailed, and it’s pretty clear that whoever made this Malty Cyrus parody video for the song “We Can’t Stop” is a beautiful, beautiful weirdo. This video offers dog-centric version of the Miley track. It’s pretty much perfect. [The Pet Collective]
Now it all makes sense! The reason why I am inexplicably drawn to Miley Cyrus is because she’s cribbing her look from my celebrity dream boyfriend Ryan Gosling. I mean, that bleached ‘do is straight out of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” and the jacket she was spotted wearing in NYC today is totally “Drive”-inspired. Yes, that explains why I have already listened to “We Can’t Stop” five times today. [Photos (of Miley): Splash News]
I seriously cannot get enough of Miley Cyrus. I do not know what it is. It would be far more in my nature to find her near constant identity makeover insufferable. But I don’t. I like her. She’s weird. I mean, on last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” she talked all about her family’s love of donkeys. This speaks to me. She also gave Jimmy a bunch of ridiculous explanations for her bizarro new video. The tl;dr is she was totally high with Snoop Lion. Anyway, yeah, she’s totally jacking Rihanna’s look (baseball jacket, thigh-high boots, gold chains), and she throws around words like “homies” and “swag” so seriously, but I don’t know, I dig Miley’s vibe. I’ve done drunk the Miley-Aid. Watch her interview above (in two parts) and check out her performance of her seriously fly new single, “We Can’t Stop,” after the jump!
