Last night during the VMA’s, Miley Cyrus announced her new album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz with a performance of the opening track “Dooo It!” I suppose this must’ve come somewhere around the time that Kanye West announced his 2020 presidential bid—which I sincerely believe he would win with the power of the youth vote—but that’s purely through deduction that both events happened on the same program. I admit that I don’t know where this album drop landed in the series of Wes Craven passing away from brain cancer, or North America’s highest peak being returned to it’s traditional Native Alaskan name, but it got a hell of a lot more clicks on social media regardless. The thought’s been running through my mind for a while now that we’ve moved far past Sodom and Gomorra, but that for some reason God hasn’t unleashed a decimating fury upon us. Last night it finally occurred to me that, as Nietzsche illuminated, God’s been dead since the late 1800’s.
“The Floyd song (Sunrise)” is literally Miley singing about her dead dog. It sounds like The Flaming Lips because Wayne Coyne produced most of the album. He was killed by Coyotes—not Coyne, but the dog named Floyd. Listen to all of Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Pets below as well as her video for “Dooo it!”:
