Miley Cyrus is wrapping up her cross-country, 24-hour tour de promotion. One item of interest in her new single “We Can’t Stop” is a supposed reference to “Molly,” a form of the empathogenic drug MDMA.
In her new interview with Rolling Stone, the singer insists that she is not referring to any illicit drug use in the song.
"I have an accent! So when I say 'Miley,' it must sound like 'molly,'" she says. "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."
This wouldn’t be the first time that Miley sang her own name in a song before, though, if in fact that’s what she’s doing in the new hit. In “See You Again,” a song off of her 2007 debut Meet Miley Cyrus, she also chirps her own name.
Here’s a pairing of the two instances to help you compare. We’re not totally convinced she’s telling RS the full truth.
