10 Reasons Miley Cyrus Deserves The Best Birthday Ever.

The “Achy Breaky Heart” crooner took to Instagram to shout out to his daughter on her 23rd birthday Monday, sharing an adorable throwback picture to do the honors. The video follows in the psychedelic style of her previous one for ‘Dooo It!’ (though with noticeably less white goo), seeing lurid patterns projected onto her face and naked body. “Lighter” itself is a really strong track, produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and sounding kind of 80s-influenced with the drums – very reminiscent of the Drive soundtrack.Miley Cyrus might be one of the most controversial artists in music at the moment, and people are everything from horrified to confused at her bizarre music videos, Instagram posts and stage costumes. While Billy Ray rocks a full-blown mullet in the cute close-up, Miley looks precious in a gingham dress adorned with bows, holding both her daddy and her teddy bear tight. “Happy birthday @MileyCyrus!” he captioned the sweet snap. “You’ve already had such an incredible year and I know that 2016 is gonna be even bigger!!!!! #HappyBirthdayMiley.” Indeed she has! She was dancing next to me at Vain, a now defunct electronic music club a few blocks down the road from the Fillmore Detroit, where we’re currently at.

Over the past year Cyrus has been putting a lot of her star power to good use with the Happy Hippie Foundation, her nonprofit that helps fight injustices faced by homeless and LGBT youth. After our 1st show in Chicago (which was totally turnt) we loved seeing y’all singing along to all the Dead Petz jamsssss but seemed like this one was a fan favorite!!!!!

In town that summer to shoot the film LOL, Cyrus was wearing nothing but black gym shorts and a cut-off T-shirt at an otherwise upscale club, appearing bolder, rawer and braver than the Hannah Montana persona that shaped her childhood career. She recently won the Vanguard Award at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Vanguard Awards gala, where she gave a heartfelt speech. “I want all of you to know that I feel beyond grateful to be in a room full of so many…people who care so much about others because unfortunately that is way too rare in the world that we live in today,” Cyrus said at the gala. “I’m thinking of tonight not as celebrating what we’ve already done but what we’re doing and what we’re going to do in the future.” We won’t just give you one reason, we’ll give you ten: At an American Foundation for AIDS Research auction, a slightly tipsy Miley outbid everyone to buy a Ryan McGinley print of a nude woman… for $300,000. While lost in a flurry of techno beats, Cyrus flashed her trademark smile and threw her hands up in the air, with the aura and tenacity of a teenager who had finally found her calling. “Detroit’s where I felt like I really grew up,” Cyrus later told Rolling Stone in a 2013 cover story interview. “It was only for a summer, but that’s where I started going to clubs, where I got my first tattoo.” Detroit changed Cyrus and there’s no denying it. Since her summer in the Motor City, she carved out and perfected the shock-pop diva mentality that today’s world both loves to hate and hates to love, a mentality so fixated that she continues to one-up herself as if to tease, “You haven’t seen the wildest part of me yet.” And Saturday night (Nov. 21), she made that very clear at her Fillmore Detroit show, which marked Cyrus’ first return to Detroit proper since that pivotal summer of 2010 (last year’s Bangerz tour stopped at a nearby suburb).

Miley commented on what a good cause the charity supports, saying she wanted to “break down people’s walls that have been built up around sexuality. Flanked by her Dead Petz — aka members of The Flaming Lips — Cyrus took an arena-sized performance and crammed it into a club venue for the second stop of the ultra-psychedelic Milky Milky Milk tour, going so overboard and so over the top that no other pop star on earth, not even Madonna, could match its excessive nature.

Well, with Miley ever venturing into new and occasionally controversial territory every other week, here are some choice wise words for her to take on board from her own former show. Running just over two hours in length, the show fell somewhere in the middle of a Flaming Lips stage prop convention and a bad acid trip, the kind where you see things that can never be unseen and later on you wish you could. When she was only 15, she turned up unannounced at a Nashville charity concert hosted by country singer Jeffrey Steele in memory of his 13-year-old son, and asked to sing a duet with Jeffrey onstage in his son’s honour.

With a reputation that has developed over years, a style that changes by the week and hair that has minute-by-minute updates, Miley is no stranger to change. Cyrus openly admitted to being drunk — “my birthday is in two days,” the almost 23-year-old reminded the crowd — and often lost energy, giving the performance the feel of a middle school science fair gone astray. Earlier this year, she took part in the 13th Annual LA County Walk to Defeat ALS to support celebrity Pilates instructor Mari Winsor who suffers from the disease.

Singing (and sometimes shrieking) at the top of her lungs while dressed in outfits that ranged from a sun to a moon to a baby and even a slab of butter, Cyrus used her flamboyancy as a means to encourage fans to be different. By the end of the set, Cyrus had dedicated poignant love songs to a number of pets both dead and alive– her blowfish (“Blowfish, if they only knew you like I do!” she cried with passion), a friend’s cat who recently passed away, her faithful dog companion Floyd, who also recently passed away — and lectured her audience on the importance of having compassion toward animals. She fell to the ground in a heap of emotions, time and time again, and often found herself lost in nostalgia (there was talk of getting hamburgers as a child with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, but the moral of the story was left untold). At one point, Cyrus even channeled her inner Daft Punk, silhouetted by the glow of a giant disco ball as she danced away to “Tiger Dreams” in a silver sequined body suit paired with a silver helmet. Perhaps that was the idea, though, to throw all seriousness out the window, because Cyrus made it clear — over and over — that she and her band were here for one reason only: to have a good time.

We just hope it was cleaned first… In 2011, Miley went to Haiti with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in order to hand out and fit children with hearing aids. Whether it’s Liam Hemsworth or whatever pop star Miley is feuding with this week, people may stand between you and your dream so it’s always important to first look out for number one.

This should be applied to coping with life’s problems and tragedies, and NOT in relation to whatever substances you get offered in your reckless partying lifestyle. In 2012 she posted a picture of her “favourite accessory” on twitter – a blue badge that reads ‘homophobia is a social disease’ – with the hashtag ‘stopspreadinghate’. With Coyne’s musical role largely converted into a supporter role, the band members actually making music seemed completely unconnected and detached from their surroundings — it’s as though they didn’t even exist. When she explained it she likened the issue to racist oppression, saying “without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple.

Dressed as a “pornicorn” to close the evening (a “pornicorn” is a combination of a sparkly purple wig, unicorn horn, sunglasses, giant strap-on dildo, prosthetic breasts, and a rainbow tail), the final number — a very fitting “We Can’t Stop” — proved that this is her party and she can do what she wants to. Unfortunately things blew up when it was discovered that Jesse was wanted by the police for breaking into an apartment, but he soon turned himself in. Miley released a video campaign to raise awareness about wolf killings in British Columbia where she is seen spotting bears and getting oh-so-excited about nature.

She also talks about how her life could have been and says that when she meets inspiring people she starts thinking, “ok, what I do is really unimportant… I can’t believe I’m not a biologist, I’m a popstar, that’s ridiculous”. But what she does say is that “if I didn’t do those things, then I wouldn’t have the voice that I have to be the megaphone for what these… amazing people have researched for so long and can teach me”.
