Interesting interview article that argues that Miley Cyrus is engaged in an act of cultural appropriation that should be criticized.  This interview goes in depth on that argument.  Whether you agree or not, it's worth reading and thinking about.  We've not had much to say about the way race factors into the controversy and we should try to figure out what we think about it.

What Was the Hipster?

What Was the Hipster? | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it
A critical history of our era’s most controversial archetype, beginning with the sleazy, mocking late-nineties fetishization of lower-middle-class whiteness and ending, perhaps, with political and artistic enlightenment.

Why Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" Music Video is Brilliant, Why It's You and Me

Why Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" Music Video is Brilliant, Why It's You and Me | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it
When I first watched Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" music video, I had a similar reaction to most people--that is, "WTF." It dropped yesterday (June 19th) to mixed reviews (at least on YouTube). As o...

Interesting personal interpretation of "We Can't Stop."  It's similar to the kind of writing you're trying to do, and worth a read for that reason, as well as for what it says.

On the short side, leaving room for the idea to be developed.  But this article does shift our thinking on Miley and "We Can't Stop."

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour 2014: Former Hannah Montana Star Ready To Shock The World With Her ‘Feminist Energy’ On Her Tour

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour 2014: Former Hannah Montana Star Ready To Shock The World With Her ‘Feminist Energy’ On Her Tour | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it

Miley sez: "What girls see... is there's an energy, a feminist energy there," she stressed. "I'm excited for people if they want to express their freedom and can relate to my music. Because of that, I think that's why a lot of fans are close to me, (so) that they can cheer me on. I hope they take it to the next level. (What I do) it's not to be different, (or) to prove a point. It's (about) being different because you can be, and not going out there to be considered different, or right or wrong. It's doing what makes you feel good and that's good for girls. And I've made that really important with what we're building (for the tour), a show that builds up every type of human being on the planet..."

Miley says her performance has a feminist energy.  In what ways might she be right?  What feminist ideas can be seen in her performances? What have feminist critics and pop culture scholars had to say about female pop stars?  Is there such a thing as "pop feminism"?  What is "third wave feminism"?  Does Baumgardner and Richards' book Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, & The Future help us think about Miley's potential feminism?

Interesting shift in perspective on what "We Can't Stop" might mean.  I'm not sure I buy the neurotransmitter parts of the argument, but this article does try to shift what we think/say about the video, and that's good!
