There has been a fair amount of controvery surrounding the new Miley Cyrus video for We Can’t Stop. It’s pretty clear that the former American Idol guest is working hard to shed her Hannah Montana persona. But Miley did provide feedback on one common point of contention: ‘Molly’ is not included in the new single’s lyrics!
Despite her unconvincing statements suggesting otherwise, Miley Cyrus’ new song is most definitely about drugs. If the crazy We Can’t Stop music video wasn’t enough to convince you, Miley’s recent interview should do it. She more or less confessed to smoking marijuana, explaining that she views alcohol as more dangerous as weed, and that, “I did a song with Snoop Dogg called Ashtrays and Heartbreak, so people can put it together for themselves.”
But while she might enjoy some 420 from time to time, Miley insists that marijuana is not part of the lyrics to We Can’t Stop, nor is any other drug for that matter. When asked by Rolling Stone whether her lyrics mentioned ‘Miley’ or ‘Molly’ (a common euphemism for illicit drug MDMA), Miley responded, “I have an accent! So when I say ‘Miley,’ it must sound like ‘Molly’.”
Still, it seems like Miley’s choice of lyrics was intentional, for as she told Rolling Stone, “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.”
No matter what, it looks like somebody is going to be offended. Apparently, ‘Miley’ can also refer to drug use. As the unfortunately named star explained, “My name is used in hip hop songs to mean that. So even if I’m saying ‘Miley,’ people could still find something wrong with it.”
Have you heard We Can’t Stop? Did you think the lyrics mentioned ‘Molly’? Sound off in the comments section below!
