Readers, if you're anything like me you wake up in the middle of the night screaming things like, "WHAT DO MILEY CYRUS' LYRICS MEAN?!?!?!"
Lucky for us the journalists at the UK's Daily Mail aren't afraid to ask the hard questions the world is begging to have answered. Questions like, "In your song We Can't Stop, when you sing about dancing with Molly, are you like really singing about dancing on, you know...molly?" Her response...YES!
But hey, we all make mistakes. Maybe one drug reference in a popular pop song isn't that bad, I mean it's not like there's two references-OH MY GOD THERE"S TWO!!!!
Yeah, that "line" she's singing about isn't an ordinary line. No readers, I wish it were that innocent. The "line" in question is a reference to the drug COCAINE!!!! A drug that is apparently (upon my further investigation) a "hell of a drug"!!!
None of this should come as a surprise, I suppose. Miley is a former star of a TV kids show. Children's television has always made subtle references to drugs like molly. The clip below isn't even all that subtle.
