Remember the good old days of Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll? Yep, I sure do. Music was a staple in my teenage life. Music encouraged me to do nothing but dance and celebrate the good times with friends. Back in the day, the phrase Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll rolled off everyone’s tongues like it was a mantra. Few actually took it to a level where they were doing all three.
Miley Cyrus’ new single ‘We Can’t Stop’ is receiving a lot of bad reviews due to its subliminal references to ecstasy, cocaine, and strip clubs.
“So la da da di we like to party / Dancing with Molly,” Cyrus sings on the track — “molly” being slang for ecstasy.
Cyrus them makes a subliminal reference to doing lines of cocaine in the bathroom with the lyrics: “And everyone in line in the bathroom / Trying to get a line in the bathroom.” Finally, she alludes to “my home girls here with the big butts / Shaking it like we at a strip club.”
When reviewing this latest Cyrus single (and being ridiculously naïve), I probably wouldn’t have caught on to the references if I didn’t read about them prior. It’s got a GREAT beat and being a Miley fan since she was a Disney tot, I love how she has grown to be a VERY confident beautiful woman who will tackle personal attacks head on.
I have never been pro-drugs, but overall, I still don’t think music sways us to take drugs if we are not a willing participant.
What do you think? Is Miley’s new track too much? Is it a gateway to drug use? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below.
