Internet sensation Missy Modell is at it again. The parody singer-songwriter has taken Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” and turned it into a pop-fueled commentary on voter suppression. In the video, a cheerful Modell sings about showing up to vote, only to be told she’s at the wrong polling station. She must drive across town in rush hour traffic (because Election Day is, stupidly, on a Tuesday)…and finds her polling place is closed.
“Throwing my hands up / They’re making it hard / But I’m gonna show up anyway / Yeah it’s voting in the U.S.A.,” she belts out.
How can you avoid a disaster like this on Election Day? Well, you could try to make a viral video about voter suppression like Modell, but since none of us is that talented, here are some more practical ways to ensure your vote gets counted.
Tish & Brandi Cyrus recently appeared on the Chicks in the Office podcast, where they discussed their new podcast Sorry We’re Stoned, how weed has become a staple in the Cyrus family, fun stories about Billy Ray & Miley and much more!
Listen to their full appearance on the podcast (40:05-1:16:52), or read the transcript of their Miley Cyrusstories below.
A.T.L.D.V. talks about the future of stylish R&B in a recent interview with RhymeJunkie.com. Formed in Augusta, Georgia in 2012, the group is made up of Amy Christine, Nako DeVincci, and Ike Nyce, along with a talented array of backing musicians during live performances.
When asked which singers or musicians influence them the most, Amy Christine replied saying:
Personally, I get influences from several pop artists! I am a huge fan of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, and Rihanna.
It’s her party, she can do what she wants. And these days, for Miley Cyrus, that means a solid hike and maybe a green juice?
The pop star, who once sang about “dancing with Molly” and has waxed poetically about her love of pot, surprised everyone last month when she revealed she’d spent the previous half a year as a dedicated teetotaler. Or, as she put it to Variety‘s Marc Malkin, “sober sober.” What began as a means of preserving her voice following a November vocal cord surgery has turned into an entire lifestyle overhaul, the singer relishing in needling mom Tish Cyrus and country legend dad Billy Ray Cyrus, he of the newly launched cannabis line, about their marijuana use.
“One of my favorite interviews is when I say, ‘Anyone that smokes weed is a dummy,'” she told Malkin. “That one I love to send to my parents, who are big stoners, every now and then.”
And should they, or anyone else for that matter, challenge her stance, the 27-year-old pays them no mind. “It’s really hard because, especially being young, there’s that stigma of ‘You’re no fun,'” she allowed. “It’s like, ‘Honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun.'”
And, now, completely clear-headed as well. “The thing that I love about it is waking up 100 percent, 100 percent of the time,” she said. “I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.”
That she wants to wake up beside boyfriend of nine months, Cody Simpson, goes without saying. Having landed his dream girl, the person he once dubbed his “childhood celebrity crush”, the 23-year-old Australian singer continues to be her most devoted champion. “We keep each other in a good place,” he said during an October appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show of the shared sobriety that cemented their developing romance last fall. “That’s what’s really healthy about it and I think that’s the first time I’ve had that in a relationship. We’re very, very much on the same page.”

Miley Cyrus attended the Los Angeles peaceful protest this week in support of #BlackLivesMatter. She posted the following message on her socials:
“Yesterday I was joined by friends and experienced the power of peaceful protest organised by @blmlosangeles in front @mayorofla‘s house with a simple demand: defund the police. There is a lot of work to be done to end systematic racism and white supremacy in our country, and I personally still have so much to learn and do to support. Today, the charge against the officer who killed George Floyd was raised to second-degree murder and the other three officers involved in his death were charged too. We can’t stop fighting for justice – justice for George Floyd, for Breonna Taylor, for Tony McDade, for Ahmaud Arbrey, and the too many names we don’t know — BLACK LIVES MATTER.”
