VIDEO: Miley Cyrus "23"

At Least She's Wearing Clothes

Miley has released yet another video for a song from her upcoming album Bangerz, and it's chock-full of drug references, skin and inappropriate dancing. Yawn.

Miley 23

It's been at least 17 hours since new Miley Cyrus news, so it was about time for her to release another video.

Miley's new video is for her song "23," and at first I thought it could be a fun poppy response to Taylor Swift's "22."

It's not.

P!nk: "Miley's cheating herself and her fans" >>

This time, Miley has clothes on — which is an improvement— but the tongue is still out. Also included are the references to getting high, her cringe-worthy dance moves and numerous crotch shots.


Evidently Miley figured she could phone this one in so she let her co-stars, Juicy J and Wiz Kalifa, do all the work. All Miley had to do was rap one verse and a refrain. The rest was up to the guys.

And truthfully, I know Miley's "hard" and all, but it really does sound like a suburban teenager trying to fit in with the cool guys by rapping. Sorry, Miley. This one doesn't work.

Liam Hemsworth has moved on >>

At the beginning of "23" (a reference to NBA superstar Michael Jordan) we find ourselves in an inner-city school. Using the age-old trick of distracting the principal by bouncing a basketball outside of his door, Juicy and Wiz get hold of the intercom and broadcast the song throughout the school.

Miley, who is so going to get detention for lack of clothing at school, is smoking an unknown substance (which is most likely salvia) in the girls' restroom when she hears the music and starts rapping about Miley things.

"I'm in the club high off purp with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on"

"Purp," of course, refers to cough syrup and "J's" are clearly her Michael Jordan Nikes.

Robin Thicke's VMAs reaction >>

Everyone is so impressed by Miley's rapping that a pep rally breaks out and Miley is able to change from her Michael Jordan bikini to a dress that she ruined two perfectly good Michael Jordan jerseys to make.

In high-school math class, you learn that a negative plus a negative equals a positive, but there is just so much wrong here that there isn't much positive that can come out of this video.

It was cute and funny at first, but now Miley has gotten to that point where she's a parody of herself, which is extremely sad.

But at least she has her J's to keep her warm.

This article is inaccurate. The single is Mike Will's not Miley's. She is featured in the song but it is not on her album. Prob a good idea to know the album before you post stuff like this.

Yeah, "purp" refers to purple kush, aka cannabis. Miley is a fan of the green, not of the codeine.

Purp is not syrup, its weed! Get a clue.

Every "age" has to have their "y"? minx pushing the boundaries of acceptability and Miley is the current one, following in the footsteps of Britney Spears - remember how we were all shocked at seeing her in a short schoolgirl outfit being "hit one more time"? We can not blame Miley for being provocative and causing mild controversy, she has after all been in front of the camera all of her formative years is any real surprise that she chooses this medium to show off her body and seek attention? Do I like the music? - not especially. Do I like the video? - more so (good looking girl half naked)! Do I approve? - not really, kinda sad she finds it necessary! Will it be a hit - of course 15 year old girls want to be her and 15 year boys want to be with her! Miley will be teasing and pleasing? our youth....... until the new minx arrives on the scene!

Miley Cyrus is y even though her sticking tongue is a turn-off. Honestly, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift can learn much from her. I want to see that new music video and I bet that is is just as y as "Wrecking Ball" is.
