What we’ve been waiting for: Miley Cyrus’ musical tribute to Occupy Wall Street

posted at 3:45 pm on November 29, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Oh, the irony. Thanks to capitalism, she’s filthy rich (estimated earnings of $48 million in 2010!) — as much a part of the 1 percent as Michael Moore and just as ignorant of her membership in it. But never mind all that: The oh-so-desperate-to-be-an-adult Miley Cyrus proves her invincible immaturity with a remixed-song-and-video-tribute to Occupy Wall Street, unaptly named “Liberty Walk.” Doesn’t she realize it’s the Tea Party that proudly and rebelliously says, “Don’t tread on me”? No, of course she doesn’t, any more than Mila Kunis understands Middle America.

If she annoys me so much, why am I posting this? I ask myself that, too. I could say it’s because I want all capitalists everywhere to vote with their dollars against her and other prone-to-pop-off pop stars. But that wouldn’t be entirely true. The truth is, I kinda like the beat. It’s a very danceable song. Then, too, there is the profundity of the lyrics: “Don’t live a lie. This is your one life. Just walk.” Inspiring.

Who is Miley Cyrus?

(No, I don’t want to watch the video)

Chip on November 29, 2011 at 3:51 PM

Doesn’t the mere fact that they have to say “thousands”, can’t even clam 10s of thousands, of people show her what a joke this all is?

Rocks on November 29, 2011 at 3:51 PM

Immediately after the song Miley gave a lap dance to her producer right up there on stage, though at least this time she was a legal adult.

Bishop on November 29, 2011 at 3:51 PM

I’m too embarrassed for her to click…

Seven Percent Solution on November 29, 2011 at 3:52 PM

And after all the violence and double talk
There’s just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, you do the walk of life, yeah he do the walk of life

J_Crater on November 29, 2011 at 3:53 PM

Why anyone would give a flying flit what this little twinkie says is beyond me. Gotta wonder, why does all these singers and hollywood type have to put their 2cents in on issues? Oh, the 1st, well people can do their 1st and not buy their product if you don’t agree with them?

portlandon on November 29, 2011 at 3:59 PM

She continues to check off the liberal ticket as she devolves. Behave as a hoochie mama before she’s “of age”–check, smoke dope and behave badly –check, establish her liberal bonafides via song–check. There you go leftards, you can have Hannah Montana.

ted c on November 29, 2011 at 4:00 PM

The video did not show any rapings, drug use, public indecency or defication. Not even a good drum circle solo. What a bummer.

whatcat on November 29, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Her dad’s a good guy, per se, country singer – loves America, etc. He’s probably embarrassed for her. In the grand scheme of things, what she doesn’t understand is that the movement she supports would very much like to destroy her. She just turned 19, so I guess she’s a typical teen (the “smartest” stupid around).

HomeoftheBrave on November 29, 2011 at 4:00 PM

I liked the parts at the beginning when they scatter the crowd and when they pepper spray a whole line of hippies (actually that made me hungry for a shishkebab). The rest was boring.

pedestrian on November 29, 2011 at 4:01 PM

Thanks to capitalism, she’s filthy rich

Not just capitalism, but nepotism. Isn’t favoritism among elites the very thing these protesters most despise? I tell you, it just breaks your achy breaky heart.

And that is all that matters.

When I heard little Miley had been doing weed and that she’d done this song for the OWS losers, I thought,

Don’t tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
I just don’t think it’d understand
And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man

Oh, well, can’t wait for her Playboy or Penthouse spread.

From the small part of the lyrics I could stand to read, she’s slugging it out with Rebecca Black’s “Friday”. An epic battle between intellectual titans.

That is mind-boggling. But hey, it’s America…and a capitalism success story. Good for her…and hey, combine her earnings and her dad’s earnings this family has done pretty well for itself in our free society.

This little ditty is a far cry from Party in the USA…which I will quietly admit I’ve tapped a foot or two to.

Sure, I am all for protesting. Although these OWS tent city things don’t seem to be covered in the constitution. If it stays peaceful, well OK. But they haven’t been. They can keep claiming that it’s only a few bad apples, but we all know better.

But OWS proponents should decide quickly if they will embrace these one percenters singing their anthems.

Her BRAND maybe earned 48 million, not her. “Hannah Montana”. And if she’s having career panic at 48 million, she must have generated twice that much the year before.

Why do you think Justin Bieber has a Christmas CD? Because his label sees the iron was hot and it’s starting to cool. I read that some of the Jersey Shore people are literally broke now and Lindsay Lohan once could ask 6 million a movie and now can’t get 6000 dollars. These creeps aren’t all sipping Champagne for breakfast and eternally rich for life contrary to what they brag.

Rocks on November 29, 2011 at 4:19 PM

Did she sing this into the People’s Microphone? I don’t think it’s fair that she gets to be the lead singer here. If she really understood OWS, it would have been 200 scruffy hipsters and neo-hippies, with a dozen hobos milling around, all shouting “Mic Check” at the camera over and over.

Good for her. Ain’t America great!!

The sad thing is she’s totally clueless that she only took home $29 million after taxes. (assuming all is wages at 38% to keep it simple).

I bet if you told her she paid $19 million in taxes last year she’d be singing a different tune.

Oh, lord, to be twenty-one and so idealistic. Socialism sounded great to myself at that age, until I got older and became a fiscal conservative. Wait until she learns that the government handling fee for socialism is way, way too high. And, along with socialism out goes the idea of the work ethic and family trying to take care of family and friends. Since the government is supposed to take care of old Mom, Dad and your needy friends.

Either that or she’ll really become famous for yucking it up with NorKo troops, sitting atop a cannon pointed south over the DMZ. Click to vote.

She’s proving to me that she’s a strong, independent woman. I wasn’t sure if that bubblegum pop image was worthy of respect, but now that she’s free from Disney and able to express herself I can only admire her.

She’s not bound by old-fashioned political or moral ideas, she’s a free-thinker. She thinks outside the little box society tried to lock her in.

Autotuned vocals have replaced talent the way Google has replaced knowledge with just-in-time discrete elements of data. The reward is immediate, but the talent lies with the technologists who bring both to those lacking ability, empowering the powerless with the trappings of competence.

I say that as someone whose creativity and mind benefit as much as anyone else from the technological crutches that accommodate civilization’s dwindling capacity to instance excellence, and expansive proclivity to mistake mediocrity for it.
