Miley Cyrus: A Journey of Unconventional Growth and Transformation

Bangerz is that indulgence you keep under wraps from your close ones and secretly enjoy in the comfort of your own space. Miley Cyrus has created a musical high that feels so wrong yet so right.

Bangerz is a collection of songs that perfectly captures the highs and lows of being in your twenties. It’s a rollercoaster mix of upbeat, self-aware tunes like “SMS (Bangerz)” and “Love, Money, Party” that contrast with more somber tracks such as “Wrecking Ball” and “Maybe You’re Right,” which express the pain of heartbreak. While “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” are the obvious chart-topping hits, the album as a whole is heavily influenced by southern hip-hop and even includes some rap from Cyrus herself, although her rhyming skills leave room for improvement. Despite its lack of depth, Bangerz still manages to impress with Cyrus’s powerful vocals in tracks like “FU.” It’s not surprising that the lyrics touch on themes like suspect text messages and sex toys, but let’s face it, did anyone really expect profound philosophical musings from the artist who brought us “Party in the U.S.A.”?

Miley Cyrus has been generating buzz with her recent VMA performance, which many are anticipating will lead up to the release of her fourth album, Bangerz. The album marks her transformation from the sweet and innocent Hannah Montana to the edgier Miley 2.0, complete with grills and peroxide buns. However, those who are shocked by her evolution must not be familiar with the behavior of many twenty-somethings. This generation has a unique and self-aware wildness that Miley embodies in her public persona. She confidently wears outfits on the red carpet that could have easily been found in stores like Forever 21 or GoJane years ago. With her “I know I look crazy, but I don’t care” attitude, Miley’s rebellious style exudes confidence and independence. Those looking for risque dancing might even find more of it on Sixth Street on a Thursday night.

To be honest, Cyrus has faced a lot of criticism lately because her new image is not considered to be alluring. Let’s take a look back at the VMAs, where she was seen playing around with long hair that clearly wasn’t hers, and sticking out her tongue while emerging from a teddy bear. It was peculiar, comical, and didn’t exude any sensuality whatsoever. In contrast, pop icons like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have undergone a transformation by means of provocative performances. For instance, who could forget Spears’ controversial nude and crystal bodysuit at the 2000 VMAs? It caused quite a stir, but was widely accepted because she exuded sexuality.

Miley Cyrus has taken her image to a new level of Sexual expression, surpassing what is typically considered “H๏t.” In her song “4 x 4,” Cyrus even sings about almost urinating from driving too fast. Her Southern accent only adds to the untraditional Sex appeal. Despite this departure from the norm, Cyrus’s album Bangerz proves that there is still a place in pop music for the unconventional, including those who wear fuzzy costumes and creepers instead of barely-there crystal biκinis and long blonde hair. Cyrus’s carefree attitude and disregard for societal norms have made her a force to be reckoned with, and she continues to be true to herself. After all, she’s just being Miley.
