    Glad chorus put this up here. What a solid tune.

    we're all a bunch of weirdos on a quest to belong Prestigious

    Yeah I'm glad she is returning to this sound. She has a great voice, and this style suits it more.

    Goddamn, man child Prestigious

    Spent the last few years exploiting black culture and artists and now that she's bored with that she's intent on winning middle America back over frolicking in white on the sand in front of waterfalls like sis be more transparent

    She's really complicated for me because I know she's done some really problematic things - especially during the Bangerz era, but I also do believe she has a good heart, but she's clearly ignorant from the bubble of white privilege she grew up in, and then when people try to point it out she gets defensive instead of listening to their concerns. (I.e. her instagram post after she got called out about the billboard interview). I'm rooting for her, but she makes it hard sometimes.

    Her earlier stuff is some of my fave. Can't Be Tamed is one of my favorite albums and Breakout was helpful during a breakup even tho I was older than her target audience at that time lol. But she's def a hard person to be a fan of. She seems to have an identity crisis and every era is the "100% new but totally real" her.

    See and that's where I'm kind of weird because I love that part of her and it's never come off as completely fake to me. I'm like within a year of her age and I know I've definitely had radical changes in my personality, the things I'm in too, and the people I surround myself in those times, so the reinventing of herself always felt like it was genuinely her being who she was at the time. (Although it was definitely intentional of her to do crazy stuff to shed the Hannah Montana image, which I will argue she had no choice but to do if she ever wanted to be seen as something different; see: Justin Bieber). And with Dead Petz I can't see any purpose it served her unless it was really what she wanted to be doing.

    But I also 100% understand how someone would not see it as genuine at all (and they may be right I have no way too know). And it definitely doesn't excuse her problematic behaviors either.

    It didn't bother me about her at first but it did with the Bangerz era. I think Party in the USA was actually transitioning her pretty well without the "I'm a grown up now!" Gimmicks but i can never blame child stars for feeling like they need to do that. She was forced to basically be Hannah at all times for the Disney image so I get it, but she def lost me during Bangerz lol. I still got a soft spot for her music cause I love her older stuff but I have a perpetual side eye now

    This is not a good song.

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    I listened to the song twice yesterday, and have not been able to stop singing it since. I even put on different music and was still singing Malibu. I'm a fan.

    Yea I bet a lot of our difference comes from you being a fan before Bangerz (I was in my "any music that isn't rock is wrong" stupid high schooler phase, so I never gave them a fair chance; I should probably go back and give some of that stuff a listen). The only post-Hannah Montana Miley I ever knew was the one starting with Bangerz.

    One of the best covers, Boyce Avenue is really best creating his own rendition of popular music nowadays.
