That Wacky Miley Cyrus Needs to Talk to You About Drugs

For a couple of years now, it's been a rumor that Miley Cyrus enjoys herself some marijuana from time to time. And you know what? That's OK. She's done far worse things than weed -- for instance, her new music video is way, way worse for her reputation than any photo of her with a joint could ever be. In this day and age, marijuana just isn't that huge a deal (and by "this day and age," of course we mean "in this horrible generation of meth").
In fact, according to Miley, good, old fashioned booze is way worse for you than that wacky tobbacky. Here's what she said when she was asked about smoking:
"I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves. I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana – people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care. I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed. As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
And while we're talking about drugs, let's go ahead and see what Miley has to say about that "We Can't Stop" atrociousness, particularly that line where it really kind of sounds like she's singing about dancing with molly:
"I have an accent! So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly.' You're not allowed to say 'molly' on the radio, so it obviously says 'Miley.' I knew people were gonna wonder what I'm saying in that song. People refer to [cocaine] as 'Miley Cyrus.' My name is used in hip-hop songs to mean that. So even if I'm saying 'Miley,' people could still find something wrong with it."
Yeah, that's fair. She probably is saying Miley, sure. But you know what's weird? People are so concerned about the Miley vs. molly debate that they're not even noticing the part about "everyone in line in the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom." And guys, that's almost definitely about drugs. So if you're choosing to spend your time getting outraged by a scandalous lyric in a Miley Cyrus song, maybe focus your attention towards that part.
Actually, just everybody focus your attention to that horrible music video. That is, without question, the most offensive thing of all.
