Miley Cyrus shed her pot, booze and pasties image from her Bangerz days two years ago and seems to capture the sentiment in a new video for her song “Slide Away.”‘
Miley went on a three-year bender as pop’s baddest bad girl.
She shed her clothes and flaunted her sexuality.
Her notoriety exploded following her risque duet with the much-older Robin Thicke at the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards.” Her wild run culminated with her worldwide Bangerz Tour in 2014 and Dead Petz album in 2015.
Then, she just as suddenly moved on. She settled down, when for a softer look, returned to her musical roots and got married.
She even shaved her famously hairy armpits.
Well, the marriage to Liam Hemsworth didn’t work out. Miley is single again, and seemingly switch hitting with a girlfriend.
The video seems to capture it all.
The clip opens at what looks like the day after a raging party. Beer bottles, a glitter ball, wine glasses… and Miley are captured floating in a pool.
The opening lyrics are about letting go.
Once upon a time, it was paradise
Once upon a time, I was paralyzed
Think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights
But it’s time to let it go
Miley is still wearing her gold lamé party dress and does a little walk of shame in the pool.
And what a party! The video cuts to scenes of a wild rager, but Miley’s just not into it.
I want my house in the hills
Don’t want the whiskey and pills
I don’t give up easily
But I don’t think I’m down
If there’s any doubt about where her head’s at, Miley sings, “Move on, we’re not 17.”
