Miley Cyrus? Meh. A Capella Miley Cyrus Plus The Roots? Amazing

The song, “We Can’t Stop,” which I heard for the first time over the weekend on “Saturday Night Live” with reworked government shutdown lyrics, has actually grown on me a little, not enough that I’d listen to it willingly or anything. But this? With The Roots and Jimmy Fallon? I’ve already listened to it four times.

Haters can go screw.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I, um, actually kinda like Miley. (ducks for cover) She's a kid. She's got real talent and she really doesn't give a crap what you think. She's not a crackhead and I think she's gonna be fine. I hate her sticking her tounge out and licking things because it's gross, but, whatever. She rocked the SNL skit and as Fallon said last night, it took her one take to do that song. They had her do two just for the heck of it.

  • NateMan

    Hey, that was... Sweet. Never thought I'd ever listen to a song by Cyrus, but that was enjoyable.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Holy shit I actually like this song now.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I was semi-shamefully addicted to this song, but now I am REGULAR-ADDICTED.

  • Zombienurse

    She can sing very well, but I don't like this song. That is all. Carry on.

  • MikeRoorda

    Further proof that she's actually talented, and trolling the fuck out of us for publicity and record sales.

  • Lanaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Nailed it. God damnit Miley, why can't I quit you?

  • Ruthie O

    I saw that video a few months ago, and it permanently changed my opinion of her singing ability. She can sing, but she isn't singing the right songs. She should really change directions and commit to being the anti-Taylor Swift: a trashy, spunky, fierce folk/country singer who fucks shit up rather than crying about rainbows. If she did that and put her tongue back in her mouth, hell, I might even secretly buy one of her songs.

  • foolsage

    Agreed. To put it more simply, Miley needs to be more Pink and less Britney. She's legitimately talented but is allowing herself to be marketed as something she clearly isn't.

  • Sherry

    Damn it, you've made me like this and wish this version would return.

  • Sherry

    And curse I can't get this out of my head and actually want to purchase it. [shakes fist at MikeRoorda]

  • PDamian

    I enjoyed this so much ... and then she had to stick her tongue out at the end. Dammit, that's disgusting.

  • JenVegas

    The Roots make everything better.

  • Miss Kate

    You took the words right out of my mouth!

  • pajiba

    No doubt! I had a nasty cold last week, but I set my rattling coughs against the backdrop of some Roots harmonies, and I found myself thinking, "I bet pneumonia would sound AWESOME."

  • JenVegas

    I feel entirely confident in ?uestlove & crew's ability to harmonize the shit out of any upper respiratory infection. I think we need to get on Fallon's show to test the theory. Make it happen, Dustin.
