Miley Cyrus Takes Stand on Syrian Conflict in Her "Wrecking Ball" Video

Categories: 2013, Miley Cyrus

Last week, President Obama announced he would attack Syria after evidence that the country had used chemical weapons on it's own people surfaced--should he receive the authorization of Congress. Needless to say, it has sent many political scholars into a frenzy. Miley Cyrus is among them. On September 9th of 2013, she released the video for her newest single "Wrecking Ball," directed by a man who once took advantage of one of our writers, in which she uses stunning minimalist imagery to loudly voice her controversial support for American intervention in Syria.

Miley Directly Addresses the Camera with Tears in Her Eyes

White wall. White nails. White teeth. White skin. Miley positions herself in the eye of an iceberg throughout "Wrecking Ball." She doesn't want anyone to be distracted from the central question of the video--why can't I stop crying? Miley is crying because of all the injustice in the world. She surrounds herself in a bleak white shroud so her audience understands the human heart of the Syrian story, and the necessity of intervening in a country with a population that's slowly disappearing.

Never forget that Miley is a simple country girl at heart. As such, it makes sense for her to don her white freedom fighter uniform on a precariously giant weapon of mass destruction. Not only does she want the United States to intervene, she wants to get personally involved. She is willing to put her million-dollar-twerk-butt on the line in order to help.

Simple country girl aside, Miley understands that eroticism is the only true way to the heart of any true American politician. And given the low IQ's of most of the people we've elected to Congress, the easiest way to communicate this is through direct nudity. Even though Miley realizes the risk that comes along with shamelessly welding Western provocation to the real and metaphorical machinery of war in the Middle East, she is willing to make the moral sacrifice if it means Congress will do what she says and intervene. She is not a symbol of debauchery, over-exposure, or illness. She is a feminist freedom fighter.

Nice to know you'll whine and whine about how Macklemore's doing a bad job with social change, but you'll write sexist articles like this.

Apparently, some people really need to see a "Sarcasm" sign being held up in order to detect it...

I can't make any connection between this song and Syria! It just reminded me of Madonna's naked body.

What a complete and utter bullshit fabrication .. Haven't heard about her donating all the proceeds ? .. Nah! Didn't think so! .. Just another bad 'love gone wrong' song.

Did Miley tell you that song had something to do with Syria? I think that song was written long before the current conflict the USA is having with Syria!! Irresponsible journalism!!

it's too bad she doesn't have the ACTUAL life experience or worldlyness that someone who DOES would bring to the use of those images and visual cues and symbols... instead of being some bubble-living brat who thinks what she's doing is.."Like... totally, like...deep, man...like...i'm actually crying, man..it's so...cool, and i'm naked..that's so deep, man..."
