Netflix show Black Mirror offers an appropriately dark reflection of modern music with "Oh Honey," a saccharine reimagining of the Nine Inch Nails classic "Head Like A Hole" by fictional pop star Ashley O aka Miley Cyrus aka the former Hannah Montana.
Can Miley's wild ride captivate the nation and come crashing through the walls that prevent people from seeing the absurdity of things like guns, crass consumerism and internet culture, even if it means being a martyr at the end of it all?
Times change, styles change, and Miley Cyrus does exactly the same, this time dipping way back to the more wholesome '50s/'60s (with one nod to the more recent pole-dancing past, albeit with a huge "No One Stays The Same" title).
Care to get a peek at what Zoe Kravitz and Miley Cyrus are into when they're behind a closed motel door? Check out this this gleefully grimey video for Kravitz's Lolawolf music collective, which plays around the vibe of a vintage surveillance cam sex-tape (minus the sex, but plus the drugs).
It's likely impossible for Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus to make a video that's not sexy on some level — we're talking about the people responsible for "Blurred Lines" and "We Can't Stop," respectively — but "Come Get It Bae" is more like a high-energy version of John Legend's "You And I" video, celebrating all the many "flavors" of women with a perfect edit and a even a little handheld Bolex
Maybe Miley Cyrus felt like she needed to follow-up last night's NBC concert special with something a bit more risque. Well, mission accomplished. Any parent who felt relieved by the more wholesome/fun prime time Miley, will likely be running for cover from this short film she made with Flaming Lips mad genius Wayne Coyne. We're talking serious NSFW: Drugs, nudity, cursing and all sorts of other bad stuff. There's a loose narrative involving Miley's missing brain, Moby and boobs, but it's best to let Wayne himself explain [via Rolling Stone]:
"The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world's most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession... John F. Kennedy's brain....the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!
Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.
She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…"
Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens."
And with this John Boehner Made It Government Shutdown — or slimdown, as Fox calls it — version that Saturday Night Live premiere during Miley's episode, I believe we have finally reached the illogical end of all "We Can't Stop" video parodies. We get the Reagan head to sing the "it's our party" bit, a French Fry White House, Taran Killam as Boehner and Miley as Michele Bachmann.
