“Am I into you, or is the music to blame?”
Miley Cyrus is in a very giving mood, evidently.
After absolutely owning (her heart) at this year’s socially distanced iHeartRadio Music Festival, including her cover of Blondie‘s “Heart of Glass,” the 27-year-old “Midnight Sky” belter has gone and given the Smilers a lasting gift from the all-too-short set: the incredible backdrop from her “Who Owns My Heart” performance.
Ten years after the release of Can’t Be Tamed in 2010 (and, subsequently, “Who Owns My Heart” as a single in October of that year), Miley gave the under-appreciated Rock Mafia banger some long overdue justice in the form of a rocky, revamped 2020 makeover for the song’s first live performance in about a decade.
And she didn’t stop there, either: for the accompanying backdrop, Miley recreated her curlers look from the music video for a tongue-wagging, rump-shaking boudoir romp. Avert your eyes, children: this one’s not meant for the Disney Channel crowd.
I wanted to believe that it was a masterpiece, but sometimes it’s hard to tell in the dark, you know? Luckily, Miss Cyrus did us all a solid by uploading the visual to YouTube in HD quality on Wednesday (September 23) for her fans to enjoy it in all of its glory – and it is, indeed, one fierce nostalgia flip.
And now, just like “Midnight Sky” (and “When I Look at You,” much to her chagrin), it is time to send “Who Owns My Heart” up the charts, too.
