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."

Doppelgänger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The word doppelgänger is a loanword from German Doppelgänger, consisting of the two substantives Doppel (double) Gänger (walker or goer). The singular and plural form are the same in German, but English usually prefers the plural "doppelgangers." It was first used by Jean Paul in the novel (1796), and his newly coined word is explained by a footnote.

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 | We Can't Stop | 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?
