Miley Cyrus’ Feminist Christmas Song Is Turning A Lot Of Heads

Miley Cyrus’ Feminist Christmas Song Is Turning A Lot Of Heads

Invited to participate in Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, Miley Cyrus performed in a hilarious little sketch in which she sang a ‘girl power’ version of this Christmas song. Safe to say this one won't be played in supermarkets...

On the occasion of her appearance on NBC's nightly talk show with Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus sang a song in a skit with the host and musician and producer Mark Ronson.

In a Christmas inspired setting, the 26-year-old singer dressed in red was supposed to make a real statement to Santa Claus in this skit by tracing a subtle parallel between the gifts offered by the bearded man and male domination.

But instead of singing the original lyrics of the ‘Santa Baby’ song, Miley Cyrus changed the lyrics to make them a bit more feminist. ‘Santa baby, I don’t need any presents tonight, I don’t want diamonds, cash, or stars... I can buy myself my own damn stuff,’ sings the BB Talk singer in this sketch where she refuses all the gifts that Jimmy Fallon and Mark Ronson give her.

‘Listen Santa, to what I say, a girl's best friend is equal pay, stop interrupting me when I talk, and don’t text me pictures of your ****…' continues the singer who has recently reappeared on Instagram, who is suddenly interrupted at this point by Mark Ronson’s phone.

‘Santa baby, I'd love to know my ass won’t get grabbed at work, by some ignorant jerk,’ sings Miley Cyrus in this both brilliant and funny performance. May be best not to put this one on around the kids!
