Miley Cyrus admits to singing about MDMA
The pop star uses the US slang term for the drug, 'Molly', in her song 'We Can't Stop'
The pop star has confirmed that the song contains the lyric "dancing with Molly", which is US slang for the drug. A representative for the song's producer Mike WiLL Made It formerly stated that the lyric was "dancing with Miley", but in a new interview the singer has set the record straight.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Cyrus said: "It depends who's doing what. If you're aged 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." Click above to listen to the song.
Of the track's unedited video, which sees the former Disney star simulating oral sex, she referenced the recent George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin shooting case. She commented: "I just think the world is so lame because you can shoot people in a movie and you can let people like Zimmerman off on trial but you can't have someone going like this [stimulates oral sex gesture], that is so dumb to me. The world is such a fucked 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?"
