Miley Cyrus's 'Plastic Hearts' is finally upon us and the singer addresses her past controversies including her famous VMAs performance with Robin Thicke.
Miley Cyrus's long waited seventh album, 'Plastic Hearts', has finally arrived and the singer doesn't shy away from addressing her many controversies throughout her lengthy career and fans are here for it.
The record contains nothing but bangers and it's track 'G-String' where Miley hints at some of her best known dramatic moments.
The 28-year-old dives head on into her personal life which has been splashed across the internet for all to see since she was just a teenager starring as Hannah Montana on Disney.
In G-String, Miley sings about perhaps her best known 'scandal' (depending on how you look at it) when she took to the VMA stage with Robin Thicke in a flesh coloured thong, shocking many around the world, hitting the headlines back in 2013.
Miley sings: "There are layers to this body/ Primal sex and primal shame/."
"They told me I should cover it/ So I went the other way/ I was tryin’ to own my power/."
"Still I'm tryin’ to work it out/ And at least it gives the paper somethin’ they can write about…"
the amount of controversy miley has had in her career is insane. she’s only 27! can you say iconic? pic.twitter.com/yhqYgJWE2f— ً (@MileyIsInspired) August 27, 2020
Hinting further about the era many look back on with raised eyebrows, Miley also says in the song:
"Yes, I've worn the golden g-string/ Put my hand into hellfire."
"I did it all to make you love me and to feel alive."
In the first track she released from the record, 'Midnight Sky', Miley also sings about her name constantly appearing in the media, this time about her relationship with Caitlynn Carter just months after ending her marriage to Liam Hemsworth.
She sings: "See my lips on her mouth, everybody's talking now, baby."
If we've learnt anything from Miley's era, it's that she genuinely doesn't care what people think about her, or her life.
Oh, that and she's a super talented rock goddess we could only ever dream of becoming.
BRB, playing the album on repeat for the forseeable future.
