Miley Cyrus Clarifies ‘We Can’t Stop’ Lyrics

June 21, 2013 08:24 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

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!

    It’s not so much the “racy” innuendo of Molly vs. Miley but clearly directed to drug use with the verses “everybody in line for the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom, we all so turnt up here.”

    As far as shedding her Hannah Montana image, she left that girl behind when she released her “Can’t Be Tamed” album. Which actually changed my mind about how I felt about her. However, I’m a little biased… I always LOVE the good boys/girls going bad theme. One perfect example would be Rihanna. After all she literally titled her 2007 album “Good Girl Gone Bad.” And clearly stated in an interview a few years later that wasn’t trying to be a role model, she just wanted to be herself.

    Artists these days have to stay fresh to survive. And just like in everyone’s life there’s that point of losing your innocence knowing you can never get it back. At the point you have two choices, either embrace the change and keep moving forward or get stuck in a rut chasing after something that’s long gone. The latter will most certainly bring your musical/actor career to a dead halt. A sad but true example of that would be Amanda Bynes. The former could cause you to lose some of your fan base, but your true fans will love you even more for being real and exposing who you’ve become.

    I’m rooting for an Amanda Bynes comeback. [which I hope happens sooner than later] And I send kudos to Miley for this track and am quite anxious for the album release.
