Miley Cyrus: The woman with multiple childhoods

Remember how wonderful your childhood was? And how you wish you could do it over and over and over and over again?

Well, Miley Cyrus has apparently done exactly that.

Back in 2013 when she released her fourth studio album Bangerz, the album had a very urban/pop leaning sound and featured rappers such as Big Sean, Future, and French Montana. She said that her previous albums “weren’t really her” and that this was the real Miley and this was the type of music she listened to growing up (interestingly enough, the rap lover admitted just four years earlier in 2009 that she never heard a Jay-Z song).

Fast forward four years later, in 2017 Miley released her sixth studio album Younger Now, which had a major country influence and was heavily influenced by Dolly Parton. The “Dooo It!” singer said that she grew up listening to mainly country music and also admitted that she found rap music, which she previously grew up with, to be degrading towards women.

Now, it’s 2021, and she just released her seventh studio album Plastic Hearts this past November. And of course a new Miley album also comes a new childhood, as this time she says she grew up listening to 80’s rock icons such as Joan Jett and Pat Benatar.

The conclusion: Miley Cyrus has lived through several different childhoods and conveniently talks about each different one during every new era of hers. Stay tuned about a year or so from now when Miley releases her Metallica covers album and she tells us that she only listened to Metallica growing up.
