Well, there’s a lot to unpack in Miley Cyrus’ new video for ‘BB Talk’! Miley is all about the good, good lovin’, and that doesn’t include talking to her like she’s a little kid. She will, however, dress like a baby! Click through to watch her crazy music video!
Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz released the video for “BB Talk,” on December 11, and it’s even more bizarre than any of could imagine. Sure, Miley is known for her wacky antics and provocative clothing, but were you ever expecting to see her dancing around in a baby costume? Sucking on a pacifier? Good, neither did we! Click through to watch the totally weird music video!
Okay, we got it Miley — no baby talk ever again! In the song, which combines a catchy hook and chorus with some spoken word from Miley, she speaks frankly about what she wants out of a sexual relationship: someone mature, who doesn’t get all lovey dovey and heap on the cutesy talking. And to visualize that point, she dresses up as a (strangely sexy?) baby, backed by dancers doing the same. What?
We’ve seen Miley go barely there, we’ve seen Miley go naked. Now we’re seeing her go back to preschool! In her first look, she’s dressed in a huge lavender bonnet and white pinafore, with absolutely nothing on underneath — except a diaper. You do you, Miley. When we cut to her backup dancers, Miley and the crew are wearing oversized novelty baby costumes, like you’d see at a Halloween store, to do their thing. You have to admit that it’s pretty funny. If you’re craving some Miley pre-Dead Petz,
The rest of the video is a montage of baby and little girl imagery, a conflicting juxtaposition with her overtly sexual lyrics. It’s hilarious, but also a little uncomfortable. It’s weird to hear Miley say “f–k me so you stop baby talking” while she’s wearing footie pajamas and sucking on a pacifier. It’s even weirder when she’s sitting in a high chair being fed by a nurse!
In the song, Miley declares that she’s “not a f–king dumbass b—h,” and you know what, we believe her! It’s hard not to just focus on what the video shows, though. She serves up some Michelle Tanner realness in a lavender outfit with a giant bow on her head, rocks pigtails with satin ribbons while lounging in a crib, and takes a bubble bath with a rubber duckie. Oh, and there’s the pipe that looks like a baby bottle. If Miley was looking for a video that people will talk about, she did it!
