Amidst rumors that Miley Cyrus is considering dropping the Cyrus and going by a single-name moniker like Madonna or Cher, comes her ascension to 13 million twitter followers and subsequently, the name of her new album.
That’s right, she said she wouldn’t reveal the name of her new album until she reached that many followers. Really Miley? Wouldn’t it have been awesome if twitter called her bluff and like, started unfollowing her? Would she just never have revealed the name of her album? But she knew that would never happen.
Which brings us to the name of her new album, Bangerz. In hip hop culture, that denotes a track that is so good with such heavy beats that you can’t help but bang your head to it. Miley said on twitter:
“If you don’t know why my record is called BANGERZ you’ll know as soon as you hear it. Nothin but #BANGERZ”
I know Miley’s been toughening up her image, but by no stretch of the imagination is she a hard core rapper and I don’t think anyone has ever head banged to Party in the USA. What on earth is this album going to be like?
