I don’t hate Miley Cyrus. THERE I SAID IT. I’d much rather have a shameless pop star that I can’t look away from than the one who’s as stuffy and boring as whatever a Austin Mahone is. They’re radio-ready machines; their main cultural purpose is to make us feel bad for loving their music and being fascinated by them. What Miley Cyrus did at the VMAs wasn’t important or even good (it DEFINITELY wasn’t good), but her dancing around in her underwear while raping a bunch of stuffed bears is far more entertaining Lady Gaga’s latest art-fart project.
In response to those like MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski who called Miley a disruptive slut, basically, Jon Lajoie, best known as Taco from The League, recorded a song called “Miley, You’re a Good Girl.” Sample lyric: “We want topless women in our music videos/We want pop stars acting like they’re in a porno/You know we want it and get what we asked for/But then Miley does it, we say OH MY GOD NO.” Lajoie’s also working on a strain called Twerkin’ Tush.
