We Can't Stop- Oh please do stop

There have been so many parodies and comments posted on the internet about Miley Cyrus's outrageous new song, "We Can't Stop". And my oh my what to say about it. 

I feel that if Miley were to just make a mediocre video that people might actually appreciate the song to some extent. For those of you who have not seen the video I don't know whether to tell you to watch it for the sake of knowing what's going on in pop culture or whether to tell you to run far, far away from that video. The actual song is really just your typical summer anthem, party pop song. Give or take a few weird lyrics. But the video is so absurd that you don't even know what to say about it.

In the video Miley twerks on, humps and makes out with anything and everything. There's a lot of money. Just straight up cash. I'm not really sure if that is supposed to be some deep metaphor about wordly problems or just for the sake of it. There's a guy in a bathtub full of bread. A girl cuts off her fingers and bleeds bubblegum pink blood. Miley's outfit is ridiculous. Not in a Lady Gaga-esque way but just too tight and not necessarily what most people would wear to a party. She also tackles a girl and and grabs a lot of butts, especially of girls, which really makes me ask the question: Where's Liam and does he know about this?

Really, we should be used to the madness in modern music videos. (Hello Lady Gaga!) But at least with most of these videos we mostly question why they must be humping objects or dancing around naked or have a bunch of animal costumes dancing around. Though Miley's video could be considered just another out-of-this world, stupid video but I feel like this video has taken everything weird that has ever been done in pop culture and gone Amanda Bynes style. Completely out of whack and control. And still it seems no one was prepared for this insanity, nor was expecting it.
