Since the release of her hit "We Can't Stop," Miley Cyrus has had to respond to charges that the lyrics include a reference to the drug Ecstasy, also known as MDMA. And, while she's previously denied it, the singer now admits that, well, yeah, that's exactly what she's singing about.
The line in the song in question is "dancing with Molly," and "Molly" is a well-known slang term for Ecstasy. Miley previously claimed that she's actually singing "dancing with Miley," and her Southern accent is to blame. Her producer claimed the same thing. But in an interview with the British paper The Daily Mail , Miley is now 'fessing up to what we already knew.
" It depends who’s doing what," she tells the paper when asked if she's singing "Molly" in the song. "If you’re ten, it’s ‘Miley’; if you know what I’m talking about, then you know. I just wanted it to be played on the radio and they’ve already had to edit it so much."
She added, "I don’t think people have a hard time understanding that I’ve grown up. You can Google me and you know what I’m up to -- you know what that lyric is saying."
Miley also complains to the paper that the raunchy video for "We Can't Stop" was edited for British TV to remove a shot where she appears to simulate a sex act.
"I just think the world is so lame because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like [ George ] Zimmerman off on trial, but you can’t have someone [simulating a sex act] -- that is so dumb to me," she says. "The world is such a f***ed-up place the last thing people need to worry about is my cute little video for 'We Can’t Stop,' you know what I mean?"
