State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" video is probably exactly what you thought

From giant bears and golden grillz (circa 2002) to lots of bread, french fry skulls and twerking, Miley Cyrus’s new video has EVERYTHING. The odd collection of these items and dance moves is completed with Miley’s need for attention. This vid is screaming “LOOK AT ME I’M GROWN UP.” And if she has to make a video like this and get a Macklemore-like haircut to prove that, we know it just can’t be true. I understand the need to shed the Hannah Montana image that has followed her around, but this video is a little over the top. But on the other hand, if Miley’s path to find herself involves pool parties and watching the sunrise on cliffs I wouldn’t mind going for the ride. This video plays up her new found sex appeal, thanks Maxim, and she seems to be missing pants for the majority of the scenes. Clad in her unitards, Miley is selling us Beats by Dre and lip balm while singing about the woes of trying to party with no rules. All in all, the video itself seems like it’s trying too hard to be different– like come on you have people eating money and stuffed, dead animals wearing sunglasses and being walked on leashes . I for one love this song, but I think you can party without any taxidermy. Take a look and tell us what you think!
