Bangerz by Miley Cyrus
“Bangerz”: A Miley Cyrus Album
Former Disney Channel star, Miley Cyrus, has been a role model for teen girls since her Hannah Montana days. After she quit the show in 2009, she went on to create albums that told listeners something about her. Most fans knew her only as Hannah Montana, unaware of the fact that wasn’t really her. Miley has explained countless times that she was paid to act that way; this is who she was all along. People misunderstand her behavior by calling it “reckless” or “immature”. How would you act if you were paid to be a certain person for your whole teenage life? How would you express yourself once you hit freedom? These are questions people don’t think to ask themselves. After calling it quits with Disney, Miley continued to make music and started to show who she really was all this time. When she completed her first album with only 7 tracks, she showed a speck of what she was hiding this whole time.

After months of recording, she released her brand new album “Bangerz”. We can all agree that Miley Cyrus has definitely matured since her Disney days. Although I have never been a fan of hers, I admire the sense of emotion that pours out in every song on her new album. Each song conveys a different message and belongs to a certain genre she is trying to portray; whether it was rebellious or loving.
In Miley Cyrus’s new album “Bangerz” she gives off a rebellious attitude in most of her songs. Her hit single “We Can’t Stop” is the main culprit of having a rebellious feel to it. The song takes place at a house party, with a bunch of teenagers having fun in a weird way. Some may song they felt like it gave away a quirky vibe. Cyrus explains through her lyrics that everyone should just have fun because they make the rules to their own life. Every time this song comes on, I get the urge to dance to it because of the way it makes me feel; happy and free to do what makes me happy. However, it is up to other people to determine how her song makes them feel. But what is shown in the video, is how the song is being portrayed and how she wants her fans to feel.
Rebellion is not the only feeling Miley Cyrus gives her listeners in her new album “Bangerz”. Another hit single was titled “Adore You”, which was originally based off of her relationship with Liam Hemsworth. That song, including others, was a love ballad right from the first measure of music. Her other songs on the 16 track album have to do with love and experiencing that feeling with someone else; whether it is in a bad way or a good way. Cyrus expresses her feelings through each love song but with a different feel to it. Some are slow dance worthy, while others are ‘get up and dance!’ worthy. She proved that to have a love song mean something; it doesn’t have to be slow and depressed. It can make you want to move your feet and go find that person you have feelings for. However, most of her love songs are about her breakup with Hemsworth, even though they make me want to dance.
Miley Cyrus’s music tells a different story than she originally told. She talks about love, parties, freedom and having fun; something she believes all teenagers should have. She is acting her age, and having fun at the same time and her album portrays that. People may view her differently because they are so used to the cookie-cutter Hannah Montana music that was produced when she was 16; 5 years ago. People don’t seem to understand that when artists grow up, their music does too. Cyrus has proved that in her album countless times, and not in a provocative way; she simply describes the love she had for her former fiance and how broken she was at the time. After struggling, she isn’t going to write about little kid things anymore, she’s going to come out of her shell and prove to everyone that she can be serious; in which she has. She’s just having a little fun along the way. People need to listen to her album to understand why she is the way she is; she clearly explains it.
Miley Cyrus’s album “Bangerz” is a MUST LISTEN! She has multiple genres of music that speak to listeners, as well as great party songs that just want to get you to move your feet. She made her album so that people could see how she felt due to her breakup with Liam Hemsworth and how she felt when she just wanted to party all night. As soon as I heard her album, I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did. It doesn’t matter what kind of person she is. She creates great music that makes people happy, and feels the way she feels. I never judge music by their artist, because sometimes their music can tell a different story than they told.
