“Unholy” by Miley Cyrus

In the song “Unholy”, Miley Cyrus equates among others the likes of getting “a little drunk” and being as “high as hell” as being “a little bit unholy”. This is not due to her personally seeing anything wrong with these actions per se. Rather this track serves as a criticism of those who rather criticize her, such as labeling Smiley Miley as “obscene”. And in response, once again she acknowledges that she is “a little bit unholy” but also relays that “so is everyone else”.

So conclusively, Miley is basically making two accusations. One is that, fundamentally-speaking, “everyone ” enjoys the same things that she does. And the other is that the people who judge her for engaging in certain actions are hypocrites since, as alluded to earlier, they derive pleasure from the same things. So considering these factors, she is not going to let such criticisms cause her to deviate from engaging in what brings her pleasure.
