Miley is back, and this time, she’s wearing clothes.
Miley Cyrus is well known for her extreme and wacky music, not to mention her behaviour on social media, which, I will admit, I absolutely loved for a short while. The cannabis, glitter, nipple tassels, pet pigs, hippies… need I go on? Cyrus did an exceptional job in washing away her sweet-as-pie Hannah Montana identity, and who can blame her? Sterling effort there, Miley.
Looking at the music, nothing need be said but again, cannabis, glitter, nipple tassels… It soon became a bore and its OTT nature was no longer exciting, just rather painful to watch. It ended up with us all subconsciously begging Miley to just stop.
After a year of silence in the music industry and a much calmer social media presence, Cyrus is back with the album, “Younger Now.” Whilst many will have held their breath and braced themselves for what havoc was to arrive, they can sit back and breathe a heavy sigh of relief. Fear not, the glitter and nipple tassels are no more!
Cyrus has rediscovered her Southern roots, following America’s traumatic election and her reunion with boyfriend and actor Liam Hemsworth. Is “settling down” the correct phrase?
“Younger Now” actually works. Aside from giving the former twerking queen a fresh and much more respectable image as a musician, Cyrus has truly reinvented herself. The album is full of sunny and soothing country tunes. Certainly not expected, but very warmly welcomed. Godmother and Queen of country Mrs. Parton will be proud!
In the last two years, Miley’s antics, particularly via social media, have felt extremely forced and have stamped the singer with an attention-seeking and brat-like attitude. Singles such as “Do It!” were quite simply ridiculous. I recall watching the music video and laughing at her pathetic attempt at the whole “not giving a shit” vibe by blowing cannabis smoke at the camera, whilst overly sexualising herself by wearing nothing but flat-form trainers and glitter glue. Seriously.
I feel a round of applause is necessary for her matured and elevated efforts with “Younger Now.” Ditching the social media limelight for the music she was brought up on is empowering to all young musicians who are currently brainwashed by the showbiz world.
Who’d have thought the day would come when Miley Cyrus replaces the nipple tassels for a cowboy hat? She might have disappeared from Instagram, but her voice for America’s classic country certainly hasn’t.
