In between licking things, talking about her "fat dick," and finding new leotards to perform in, Miley Cyrus has been busy doing a whole heap of new covers. She's actually been dabbling in playing other people's songs for years now, on and off. And, sorry Haters O'Miley, but some of her versions are actually rather good. Here, so we can keep track, are five of her most memorable cover attempts.
1. "Summertime Sadness"
The U.K.'s BBC Radio One has a regular show called Live Lounge, in which artists come on and do unlikely covers. On a recent visit, Miley took it upon herself to play Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness." Turns out, if you sing that song without tics, slurring and struggling through duck face-related issues, it's really rather good!
2. "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?"
For her MTV Unplugged session last January, Miley covered the Arctic Monkey's "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" She took the laid-back swagger of the original, gave it a sultry, stompy slant, and injected the end of the track with a refreshing kick of passion. In an interview with an Australian radio station, sometime later, Monkeys drummer Matt Helders confessed to liking her version and noted: "She did some bits in there I wish we'd have done. She gets higher than we can in the voice." Yes she can, sir.
