Miley Cyrus’s New Music Video for “Malibu” Is So Cute I Cried
Miley Cyrus released her new song â€œMalibuâ€ today and it gives me great pleasure to tell you that even though it’s not a banger, it is very good.
And I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s just because Iâ€™m feeling extra emotional today or what, but the music video was so cute it made me break the cardinal sin of womanhood: it made me cry at work.
To put it simply: it’s been a long time since we’ve seen Miley look remotely this happy.
When sheÂ announcedÂ she was coming out with a new single, she said it would be an acoustic-sounding song about her fiancÃ©, and I don’t think Iâ€™m alone in saying I was concerned.
Love songs can go from cute to vomitrocious real quick, and I didnâ€™t know if Miley had enough distance to pull it off without verging into John Legend territory.
But as my co-worker Erica so perfectly put it, â€œMalibuâ€ is sweet without being corny â€“Â and itâ€™s easy and breezy enough to get swept away by regardless of whether youâ€™re a fool in love or a total raging fuckgirl.
â€œMalibuâ€ appeals to the romantic in all of us who wants nothing more than to frolic on the beach with a shit-eating grin on your face because you’reÂ just that happy â€“Â which is exactly what Miley does in the music video in a variety of wedding white-on-white lewks.
And in a day and age when the only genuine emotion most people sing about is being hopelessly alone and strung out on pills, itâ€™s more refreshing than that first sip of water after a night ofÂ pounding back shots all night.
