Miley Cyrus just dropped the music video for ‘Mother’s Daughter,’ from her recently released EP, SHE IS COMING. The video includes Aaron Philip, Amazon Ashley, Angelina Duplisea, Casil McArthur, Lacey Baker, Mari Copeny, Melanie Sierra, Paige Fralix, Tydryn Scott, Vendela, and Miley’s own mother Tish Cyrus. Conceptualized by the unconventional artist herself and director Alexandre Moors, the video is rich with empowering statements and memorable visuals from start to finish. SHE IS COMING is the first of three 6-song EPs that will make up one collection titled SHE IS MILEY CYRUS.

Its release comes on the heels of Miley’s headlining performance at Glastonbury Festival this weekend, which received rave reviews, with NME declaring this is the “beginning of her very own rockstar era.” The set featured special guests Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X for “Old Town Road” and “Panini” and Mark Ronson for their hit “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” as well as Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black.” In addition to playing her hit songs like “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” plus all 6 tracks from SHE IS COMING.  The pop-infused rock set also had Miley performing, for the first time, her remake of Nine Inch Nails’ “On A Roll” and “Head Like A Hole” as her Black Mirror character Ashley O, donning a purple wig.

“I've always been a fighter. Maybe not always in the most productive way, but fighting for myself, a friend or even for a stranger who is being bullied has always been a part of my personality. Fat acceptance is based on the notion that all fat people, regardless of health, deserve respect. And it's a battle that is fought every day by thousands, including myself. Social media's accessibility allows us to peek in on others living their lives, but too often the conversation turns negative when there are fat bodies involved. People just love to leave awful comments on fat folks photos in order to feel superior and I promise you, not one of these commenters actually cares about the health, family, environment or whatever bullshit reason they give for their vile behavior towards a fat person. And really, how in the hell does health matter in the context of someone just posting a photo of themselves feeling happy and confident? (HINT: it doesn't matter, stop pretending like it does) Next time you see a fat person posting pictures of themselves living their life, stop and ask yourself why you wish to spoil their joy. I guarantee that you can't come up with a valid reason that isn't based in your own ego gratification. Stop it and do better! We humans have a lot to learn, but we can start by fighting our personal biases and permitting people of all genders, races, sexualities, sizes, abilities and health levels to live harassment-free lives. Don't fuck with their freedom to feel happy and beautiful right now, not just when society says it’s ok.” – Angelina Duplisea @anactingangel

“So pretty much in my every day life I tend to express my freedom through my fashion – it’s like my voice because I don’t like to say too much I like to leave everything open for interpretation. Thankfully i don’t really have to fight for my freedom but for those who do I definitely speak out and continuously rock out for them hoping to inspire the next girl like me. Activism to me is pushing the agenda of staying true to yourself and keeping it G (genuine) – I feel like if I continue to showcase and spread my message/story it’ll reach the masses. Activism is a group effort to keep it simple especially for social change more people should start within before getting involved imo – lots of biased/ skewed beliefs due to social media – start at home! If your words aren’t coming from the heart or a reliable source (not twitter!) who are you helping? Women like me young and old give me the hope to continue the fight for our freedom as dark skin women in the world! #BlackGirlsROCK” – Trydryn Scott
