Miley Cyrus celebrates 11th anniversary of infamous TMZ Bong video

Miley Cyrus wants the day she was caught ripping a bang turned into a national holiday.

When you watch Miley Cyrus today, it’s easy to forget that she almost derailed her entire career with a cheeky bang.

Just five days after turning 18 in 2010, one of Miley’s “friends” disclosed a video of the Disney Channel star taking a puff of salvia – a legal hallucinogenic drug – in a dingy room and “having a little a bad trip “.

When TMZ released the footage titled “Miley Cyrus Bong Video: Partying with a Bong,” the world almost blew up. And while he doesn’t even smoke weed, and salvia is literally legal for adults in California, Miley has been heavily criticized for the “scandal” because people feared that “young children would imitate his behavior.”

Even Billy Ray Cyrus weighed in on the video in 2010 to share how disappointed he was with Miley for his actions saying he was “so sad” and that “there is so much out of my control about it. moment “.

The drama surrounding the bang video got so bad that Miley lost a huge deal with Walmart and was forced to apologize for * checking grades * smoking a legal drug * rechecking grades * as an adult.

“I’m not perfect. I made a mistake… I’m disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans,” Miley said. Marie Claire about the incident, although it is very common for 18 year olds around the world to smoke salvia and even weed.

“But it’s not Miley Cyrus. They are not models, ”she said at the time. “So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I represent.”

But 11 years later, everything has changed. Instead of being sorry and remorseful, Miley Cyrus wants the day she was caught ripping a big bong to be called a national holiday.

And Miley is right: it should be called a national holiday. Miley and the Bong was a cultural reset. This turned Miley into an instant icon and spurred her post-Disney bad girl ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ era – a change that all the stars of Disney and Nickelodeon are going through now. I mean, look at how successful JoJo Siwa is.

Without the bang video, we would never have had Miley’s pivot for hump-happy molly-popper during Banger where she cut all of her hair, rocked on a wrecking ball in her underwear, and was truly reborn as an artist far removed from Disney.

Really, we just have to thank the bong for giving us the country and rock Miley Cyrus we have today – animal loving pothead, singing like an angel, calling assholes when they try to come for drag queens, and petitions for the regulars that she was ashamed to have as a child being named a national holiday.
