Miley Cyrus is a force to be reckoned with, and someone I have come to massively respect over the years.
At 26, Miley has come a long way since her tween years as young pop star Hannah Montana. And throughout the past decade and her time on the silver screen, she’s shown us who she is to her core — and she has always unapologetically been herself.
“My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”
Her newest summer release SHE IS COMING dropped on May 31st and features the powerhouse anthem “Mother’s Daughter,” where she refuses to hold back her power and freedom, taunting “Don’t f**k with my freedom” through cool hip-hop beats. The EP shows Miley at her musical best, fusing all her power, conviction, confidence and political statements in a tightly produced hip-hop laced EP.
Even the cool “Party Up The Street” featuring Swae Lee and hip-hop producer Mike WiLL Made-It has been stuck in my head for weeks. Its smooth mellowed-down textural beats take my ears to pure musical ecstasy.
“I used to hate being bored because I thought that meant I wasn’t doing enough or I was being lazy. And now I’ve realized when we’re bored that’s usually when our imagination gets to be free. So I don’t worry so much about filling my time with meaningless things, really do what matters. If it meant not being at my little sister’s birthday, it’s not worth it. So I think give a f**k a lot less about work and more about my family and my friends and I can’t get those back. There’ll be a lot of more performances from me, but you don’t always get that time back … I’ve learned the power of no.”
