Miley Cyrus Serves Up Some American Pie

The dime-store synthetic material that makes up Miley Cyrus’ new single “Party In The USA” is stretching to the track’s new video, which seems to be a combined tribute to two videos—Jessica Simpson’s “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” and Madonna’s “American Pie”—and that Chanel ad with Vanessa Paradis from 1992. (Also, strip clubs. Although I’m sure that’s totally unintentional.) If only someone had thought to incorporate a firehose—then she could have channeled another classic clip! Cyrus’ video after the jump.

    I’m not sure why so many pop aficionados have gone gaga over this (unless it’s all a super-contextual attempt at satire) but I just don’t get the appeal of Miley to anyone not in her demographic of teenagers. Apart from her “brand” she offers nothing new to the adult pop palette, and most of her best bits are indeed recycled from other artists that young people were born too late to recognize.

    Having said that, her bit in “See You Again” where she goes “st-st-st-stuttering” is probably my favorite pop moment of the summer of 2008, so good on her for that.

    @ampersandparade: I’m not either. This song is fucking garbage, and you know that I’m not a real anti-”pop” type.
