On Miley, From a New Father’s Perspective

The winking, twerking, tongue-waggling menace known as Miley Cyrus

Cyrus’ genre-bending Bangerz tracks, almost all of which she at least co-wrote, bring to bear her wide palate of influences and postures—from country to club music to pure pop radio gold. Anyone who saw her MTV Unplugged performance of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” knows Cyrus has a bright future in country music if she wants it. But, for now she wants to make Bangerz; music full of vulnerability, pride, insecurity, exuberance and Dionysian abandon. If it all feels too much like a wrecking ball, just remember how big everything looked and felt when you were 20. Yeah, that’s what I thought.

If you’re still on the fence about this show, let me recommend Cyrus’ well-chosen show openers as my final argument. Icona Pop is a Swedish DJ duo that dabbles across genres as disparate as techno, house, punk and (of course) Euro-pop. Their often ethereal sound should have a calming effect before the mayhem of Cyrus’ set. Taken together, these two acts represent the current state of female pop-stardom in its diverse manifestations. But forget about that—let’s just have an unapologetic blast, shall we?
