Miley Cyrus: We Can't Stop
on 23 June 2013
While Miley Cyrus has been making it known she's a long way away from her days as the kid-friendly character Hannah Montana for some time now, her freshly released video for "We Can't Stop" makes it clear she is anything but PG and has no intention of, well, stopping. Packed with awkward product placements, media buzzwords and more twerking than a strip club in Rio, the video borders on a carnivalesque nightmare of pop culture that challenges viewers to finish watching—an effort we called "the Miley Cyrus challenge." Love it or leave it, the song is already topping charts; including that of the New Yorker's discerning critic, Sasha Frere-Jones.
