Miley Cyrus: ‘I’ve never experienced an election this important in my life’

Miley Cyrus is looking relaxed and positive as she heads to the studio for a recording session in West Hollywood

Miley Cyrus is 27 years old now. She’s still the same old twerker who can’t settle on a public persona, but in smaller ways, she is growing up a little bit. I don’t even completely hate her interviews these days and I can admit that I even agree with her on some things. I’m not sure if there are people in Miley’s very specific fanbase who are not aware of what’s happening in this country. But just in case those people exist, Miley is talking politics. This year, she seems to be focusing more on just getting people out to vote.

Miley Cyrus is talking politics. During a new interview with Nova 96.9′s Fitzy & Wippa, the 27-year-old singer talked about the importance of voting in the upcoming presidential election, and said that she plans on getting involved in encouraging her fans to vote.

“Listen I’m 27 and I know I’ve never experienced an election this important in my life and hopefully not again in my lifetime,” Miley shared. “I can’t express the importance enough, especially if young people getting out there and being active and making sure that their friends, their family are voting and have the information about whether it’s mailing in, about the state of our country right now. It’s just crucial that we get out there and make changes and we have someone fit for the job of running our country.”

Miley then went on to say that she believes more young people are getting involved in politics this election than they did in 2016. “I think young people are really stepping up to the plate, really taking charge and getting mobilized working and advocating tirelessly. I really think so, I think that you know it’s kind of Rock bottom here right now. I think it’s desperate times, I think people will really step up. I don’t believe in don’t worry be happy, I believe that worry is healthy. Worry is why we are washing our hands, wearing our masks, keeping our distance. I believe in realism and not saying everything is going to be okay.”

In 2016, Miley was a Bernie Sanders supporter for a while, but then she said it was “crazy” that Bernie supporters might NOT vote for Hillary Clinton. Miley ended up voting for Hillary and she was happy about her vote, and I believe she was appropriately devastated about Trump stealing the election. All that being said, again, to the people saying that 2020 is the most important election of our lifetimes… it’s true in the sense that 2016 was also really f–king important, and 2016 was (I believe) probably more important long-term, when the history books are written. But sure, Miley is telling the youths that they need to get out and do sh-t.

    Yeah, 2016 was it. But even so, I’d love to get a look at the alternate TL where Bush was not allowed to steal 2000. What’s that look like? I doubt very much Trump is President today. We’d have a liberal leaning court…I don’t know. I’d love to take a look. It’s possible 2000 was actually it and we got an 8 year reprieve that we thought was history changing but was really just…a small reprieve.

      President Al Gore. Sigh.

      I think things would have been a lot better, for sure.
      I may be wrong on the details, but there was a nuclear safety deal with North Korea that the Clinton administration was close on, that Gore would have completed, and that Bush scrapped. Plus all the environmental stuff…

      I’m thinking 2020 is the most crucial though, because I think Trump and his cronies have been way worse than anyone would have imagined, especially with the pandemic.

    Good on her for encouraging her fans and others to get out and vote and advocate for change. But dear lord, what is that hair? Is she trying to bring back the Billy Ray mullet? Just…. NO.

    We have to figure out how to make our platforms profitable. Democrats will never get ahead or properly maneuver Republicans unless their ideals and focus make people rich. We need to figure out a way to address climate change by means of money-saving and money-making ideas. When the subhumans on the right spew their third grade rhetoric, we need to be able to dangle money at them. Yeah, it’s low, but face it. Money is the only thing the right truly cares about regardless of God. Regardless of history. Regardless of civil liberties. If they’re banking, tunes will change.

    EVERY election local or national is important and life changing…the ONLY reason we have Tramp is because WAY TOO MANY FOLKS didn’t see that fact…there have been more registered Dems than Republicans…FOR YEARS…Republicans get out and vote in EVERY election…Dems don’t…than folks wonder why things don’t change…or get worse…

    Since Nixon…the GOP has shown US what they’re about…maybe NOW…all registered Dems will listen.

    Apathy leads to facism…PERIOD!

    In your WHOLE life, Miley?? Oh noes. She is so self-centered

    Also, her hair looks like she’s in some kind of period piece

    I think she’s right about it being the most important election, because right now, this is the only one you can do anything about. And it seems she’s taking it seriously and doing what she can to have an impact. As far as looking back and deciding ‘what was the turning point?’, I think it’s like the fall of any Empire, it happens bit by bit over time, gradually disintergrating, usually under the weight of its own combined injustices and inequalities and political crimes and complacencies and greed from within, making it unable to withstand pressure from without. One thing’s for sure, if Trump does lose in November, the work is only just beginning.

    I’m glad she’s advocating for people to vote.
    Is it a Cyrus obligation that everyone in that family rock a mullet at one point in their life??

  8. IzzyJean says:

    And if we are all looking for Miley Cyrus to guide us in politics, God help us all 🙏😳🤨
