Miley Cyrus' 'Carpool Karaoke' Video Included A Game Of "High Or Not High"
If you took a snapshot of each iconic moment in Miley Cyrus' life, she would look different in every single one. This woman has been capable of reinventing herself in each stage of life to match the experiences she's endured. You have to absolutely love her for it. Lately, Cyrus has been more transparent than ever and has done tons of fun interviews. Specifically, Miley Cyrus' Carpool Karaoke video exposed a lot of surprising details about the singer.
Cyrus and host, James Corden, sang all the hits during their ride. If you watched the entire video without breaking into song, you are far stronger than I am. Of course, as most interviews with Cyrus, conversations eventually led to the infamous 2013 VMAs. Cyrus and Robin Thicke performed their smash hits, "We Can't Stop" and "Blurred Lines," together on stage. It was during this performance we all learned what rhymed with hug me: a foam finger and twerking.
Cyrus' twerking all over Thicke was the talk of the town, and many speculated it was what brought his then-wife, Paula Patton, to file for divorce.
However, Cyrus used that controversial moment to grow and develop as a person and activist. She told Corden,
Cyrus' reference to the fact that everyone has been (or has known someone) who dressed as 2013 VMAs Miley for Halloween is amazing. Miley went on to explain that her transformations were a way to differentiate herself from her Disney days. However, she has learned to appreciate the places she's been because it has made her the Miley we all know and love today.
Cyrus has truly learned a lot through her journey.
One of the more shocking changes Cyrus made while working on her album, Malibu, was when she announced she has stopped smoking marijuana. But it's "just for now." She clarified,
Corden invited Cyrus to play a game of "high or not high." He named a few moments and Cyrus rated on a scale of one to ten how high she was when it occurred. The answers were surprising.
During the 2013 VMA performance, Cyrus said "zero" — she was not high at all. She explained, "I can't smoke before I go on stage, I get too scared"
Corden then jokingly asked how high she was the first time she listened to "Achy Breaky Heart" by her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. Her hilarious answer, "Wasn't, but I wish I was."
Most surprisingly, Cyrus rated herself as a "ten" while filming the music video for "Wrecking Ball." You know, when she's swinging naked? I don't blame her, that would make anyone feel a little uncomfortable.
Cyrus' episode of "Carpool Karaoke" was definitely everything I hoped for and more. We love you, Miley!
