Miley Cyrus’s ‘Mother Daughter’ Video Has a lot to Say!
We all know Miley Cyrus has been a wild child ever since her little head shaving stint back in 2012 but her music has never faltered.
Miley has never struggled to have something to say, whether it’s through her music or activist beliefs and her latest music Video ‘Mother’s Daughter’ is not short of a few artistic subliminal messages or two. Focusing on feminist freedom and fighting back at society deprivation.
The Video is a homage to her own mother Tish Cyrus and all other women from all different walks of life.
It’s crazy to hear but Miley’s wild child nature and colourful personality is in the Cyrus genes as her mum, Tish is just as strong willed and feisty as her daughter.
Delving deeper into the fiery lyrics it’s pretty self-explanatory what the pop star thinks of her mother and it’s awe-inspiring.
‘Oh my god, she got the power/ Well look at here, she got the power/ Don’t F*** with my freedom/ I came up to get me some/ I’m nasty, I’m evil/ must be something in the water or that I’m my mother’s daughter.’
Just ahead of the drop of the new music video, Miley performed a rock inspired rendition of her tracks at Glastonbury Festival and paid tribute to her mama on social media as she shared a pic of them with the powerful caption, ‘ I’m a lot of things, ever changing, but always have been and always will be my mother’s daughter & dam proud. #Strong #Smart #Driven #Badass #Nogreaterlove.
The Hanna Montana star’s latest video is jam pack full of political statements via words and imagery to influence all types of women in the world. Some messages are sprinkled throughout the video in dramatic flashes including ‘Not an object’, ‘Sin is in your eyes’, ‘Every woman is a riot’, ‘Virginity is a social construct’, and ‘Feminist AF’.
The most exciting part of the music video is when we see mama Tish, sipping tea with her daughter in an oppressive Victorian style.
Previous to the video being released, Miley took to Instagram to post still images from the video, accompanied with lengthy but inspirational messages to all women from different walks of life and demanding the female population to fight back!

“I've always been a fighter. Maybe not always in the most productive way, but fighting for myself, a friend or even for a stranger who is being bullied has always been a part of my personality. Fat acceptance is based on the notion that all fat people, regardless of health, deserve respect. And it's a battle that is fought every day by thousands, including myself. Social media's accessibility allows us to peek in on others living their lives, but too often the conversation turns negative when there are fat bodies involved. People just love to leave awful comments on fat folks photos in order to feel superior and I promise you, not one of these commenters actually cares about the health, family, environment or whatever bullshit reason they give for their vile behavior towards a fat person. And really, how in the hell does health matter in the context of someone just posting a photo of themselves feeling happy and confident? (HINT: it doesn't matter, stop pretending like it does) Next time you see a fat person posting pictures of themselves living their life, stop and ask yourself why you wish to spoil their joy. I guarantee that you can't come up with a valid reason that isn't based in your own ego gratification. Stop it and do better! We humans have a lot to learn, but we can start by fighting our personal biases and permitting people of all genders, races, sexualities, sizes, abilities and health levels to live harassment-free lives. Don't fuck with their freedom to feel happy and beautiful right now, not just when society says it’s ok.” - Angelina Duplisea @anactingangel

“As a black girl in a wheelchair who happens to be trans - I just want to have a good life and do good in whatever my endeavors consist of, regardless of what that might mean in the face of oppression. I do not identify or label myself as an activist, but that’s just because I care- and I think everyone should, activist or not. I fight for my freedom by being myself.” – Aaron Philip @aaron___philip
