You’ve probably already heard enough about Miley Cyrus to last a lifetime — and with a movie based on her hit television show currently filming, a new album called Breakout being released, and (not to mention) all those controversial pictures invading the Internet, America is bracing for Miley-overload.
Which is why when I found out a track on her new album was her ‘eco-anthem’, I took notice. The song, titled ‘Wake up America,’ is a break from the standard, “he broke up with me, I hate school” tween angst ridden tracks we are used to hearing from these pop-tarts. With lyrics telling us to ‘Wake up America, we’re all in this together, It’s our home so let’s take care of it’ and to ‘ Stand Up, I’ll try if you will, wake Up it’s not a fire drill, all she needs is a little attention, can you give her just a little attention?’
It’s a love song to Mother Earth, if you will.
You can listen to the song here, and while it’s not exactly Shakespeare, you do have to give the Disney star some credit for putting it out there.
