Miley Cyrus is selling $20 condoms to promote her new club music EP


Miley Cyrus likes to reinvent herself with each new album. That’s fine, but makes it hard to keep up. I actually thought she was in her reverting to her country roots phase but that was two releases ago. Following up from whatever her last incarnation was, Miley is now reverting to her club music phase with her new EP, She is Coming. I like Club Miley, I think she does well on that platform. However, I’m not feeling She is Coming yet. So far I only like Cattitude, which is derivative of Missy Elliott (plus RuPaul is featured and is very good). Much like her last club phase was about drugs, this one is about having sex or specifically, Miley having sex. And what’s the best way to promote an album all about sex? Prophylactics, of course. Not just any condoms, either, but $20 a pop condoms that have Miley’s new catch phrase and phone number (?) on it.

Miley Cyrus‘ new EP, She Is Coming, dropped on Friday, and a slew of new merchandise accompanied the release — including her own branded condoms.

The condoms, which are sold individually for $20, come in a black wrapper with “She is coming” and “1-833-SHE-IS-MC” written on the outside in white. The phone number is also featured on a T-shirt and sweatshirt available on her website. Other merchandise released with the EP includes more clothes and a poster — one sweatshirt has the phrase “phone sex is safe sex” written on it.

The purchase of one of the condoms also includes a digital download of the EP.

She is Coming costs $5.99 on iTunes. So the condom cost is $14. For $14, I feel like I want the condom to do more for me. I can’t figure out what though. My go-to bonus is always to get my dishes done, but I can’t make that work here, unless there is a Ratatouille in the condom type situation and let’s all just admit – nobody wants that. As for the phone number, I called it and it rang once, went silent and cut off. Miley is a great advocate for many good causes, I sort of expected it to be a donation line for LGBTQ rights or Planned Parenthood or something. At the very least, I expected a pre-taped message. It feels like she missed a fun opportunity there and that’s not normally like her. As mentioned, there are a variety of sex themed/double entendre items you can purchase on Miley’s website. Most of it I could leave (although I think this orange t-shirt is pretty cool). But it’s fine and very on brand for Miley. A lot of her promos had her devouring fruit in such a manner that was supposed to be seductive, but really it just made we want to get her a napkin. I’m glad that is less prominent in the merchandise.

As far as her other promotion is going, her husband, Liam Hemsworth, is posting a bunch of arty shots of Miley on his Instagram, which is great, he should be supporting his wife’s career. But the shots, which actually aren’t bad, are even better with his tongue-in-cheek captions, mainly about how impressive he is for taking them:

After I wrote this post, I saw this terrible story out of Spain. Miley was grabbed and groped/kissed by a ‘fan’ as she walked directly behind her husband, who took her under her arm the minute he knew. The person’s actions in this video are not acceptable. This is never acceptable. I hope Miley is okay.

    Some people think they own celebrities, so it’s nothing to them to grab, pet hair, kiss, and grope. It’s so disgusting. Like, remember there’s a human in there that may not want your touching!

      This. Luckily, it was caught on video. Otherwise, it would just be denied and dismissed as an attention-seeking lie from another one of the Problematic, Thirsty, & Not Classy Women because the bar is higher. #IBelieveHer #Pride2019.
      I’m not looking forward to any of her new music at all though.

    I loved Bangerz so I’m excited for her return to Club Miley. Malibu Miley was boooooring. but I’m also not really feeling She Is Coming. I’m hoping the other two EPs are better.

  3. Kirsten says:

    Club isn’t my jam but I like her so I hope she does well. That video is scary, not cool. That person should be held legally liable for assault.

  4. Case says:

    This EP was a weird choice after her last album that showed growth and maturity. She’s back to club music singing about doing drugs, really? It’s just a shame. She’s talented and IMO is wasting it.

  5. Some chick says:

    So the new name for disco is “club music” now? Is “dance music” too stodgy? o.0

    PS: those sunglasses are ridic. Way too big for her face.

    Something Nice: seems like Chris is trying to be cute and make the focus be on Miley.

    Also, her dad told Rolling Stone that genres are essentially meaningless at this point, and that artists should do what they want to do and not worry about it. He was talking about Lil’ Nas X, but he’s probably said it to Miley as well.

    I want her to work with Wayne Coyne again!

    Miley is still cancelled after her blatant appropriation and ridicule of rap and hip hop. She used it to her benefit and when it didn’t suit her anymore she called it a phase and put that costume away. She’s did the country classic thing (dolly is her godmother and don’t you forget it). She got married and now she’s ready to be tacky for the sale off the backs of another genre she never ventured in before. Your pop Miley, just be pop country.

    Oh and what that “fan” did is unacceptable.

  7. Marty says:

    She can make whatever the hell music she wants as long as she keeps black women’s names out her mouth.

    Culture vulturing to sell albums, where have I seen that before??

  8. Jujumanji says:

    I love her and Liam’s love. It’s cute and I love how they fought for their happy ending. Miley is super talented and Club Miley is always fun to me. The maniac who attacked her in Spain needs to be charged. They were wrong absolutely.
