Can't Be Tamed
Who does Miley Cyrus think she is?
Let’s get one thing straight(ish): this is not a cabaret or a f*cking sing-a-long. Can’t Be Tamed is an anti-biography told by the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana. A surreal un-becoming of age that begins with molly and ends somewhere deep in the Miley mindverse. Tumbling down a psychedelic rabbit hole, Miley confronts her selves in all their messy sexuality, cultural appropriation, transcendence, love, nipple pasties... oh, and feminism. Then there’s the question she can’t seem to shake: just who the f*ck am I?
Can’t Be Tamed is a 3am, greened-out D’n’M on the nature of persona, performance and identity with Miley Cyrus as your spirit guide.
