    Girl to Girl Talk: Is Miley Cyrus’ New Song “We Can’t Stop” Promoting Rebellion?

    Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and council. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian life and walk of faith! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions.

    PI readers, this week I heard the new Miley Cyrus song “We Can’t Stop,” which seems catchy and upbeat at first listen. But then I listened closer and heard what the lyrics were saying, and it pierced my heart. I am disappointed because it seems that, again, another young role model is promoting a “no filter” message to this young and impressionable generation.

    Check out the song for yourself below:

    (Note: Some of the lyrics may be inappropriate for younger viewers, so use caution when listening.)

    Do you think Miley has changed as a person and artist? Obviously, she has grown up from her Disney days, which is understandable, but do you think the music is a form of an outlet, such as a cry for help? This week I started a topic in the Girl Talk forum regarding the song; click here to read it.

    Some people may defend the lyrics as coming from a postmodern worldview that dictates, “What you believe, YOU believe, and what I believe is what I believe.” My worldview is different; what I believe is the Bible. As believers we know Jesus is the way and the truth, and that there aren’t a thousand ways to get to God. The song has a somewhat postmodern and rebellious worldview, but I can’t claim that as I don’t know Miley’s beliefs. I think it’s food for thought. Do you PI readers agree?

    I strongly feel led to pray for her. Let us pray for Cyrus for her to return to her positive, wholesome and family-oriented roots. No one knows what she is going through personally or what message she is trying to send out, but let us pray that she finds Christ. Also, that God is able to change the entertainment industry with positive, loving music.

    PI readers, do you think the song is promoting rebellion, partying and a negative message? Do you listen to mainly secular music or Christian?
