Miley Cyrus posts OWS tribute video

As former Disney darling Miley Cyrus deals with the fallout from joking she's a 'stoner' at a recent fete, New York Magazine's Vulture reports that she's getting political.

The now 19-year-old singer/actress posted a homemade video in support of the Occupy Wall Street protesters to her YouTube account last week.


The peace-sign flashing teen set a dance remix of her song "Liberty Walk" to footage from Occupy protests, noting that her video is dedicated "to the thousands of people who are standing up for what they believe in."

As the Village Voice points out, Cyrus has received some negative feedback on her video, perhaps because the wealthy pop star is part of the 1 percent… or maybe fans were just disappointed she didn’t use “Party in the U.S.A.”

What do you think of Miley’s OWS involvement?

      Exactly! Cue ironic malaise now. =) At least she is taking a stand though, she knows the whole celebrity/rich lifestyle is BS.

    I guess she hates OWS. Her endorsement is a damaging one. If she wants to help she could give money instead of some video that'll drive everyone away.

    well miley is very intelligent and she always been very involved in charities and work, she not like the other disney bubble heads that disney has! miley not only writes her own songs, she plays instrument and she is always involved in standing up for what is right, am not surprise she done this, she always speaks her mind and that is why a lot of people admired her and hang on to every word she says. she has a strong voice and is good to hear stand for another thing she feel strongly about.

      I think you have an extremely unrealistic viewpoint of Miley Cyrus. I'm not entirely sure what a "bubble head" is, but if that was an actual thing it sounds like Miley Cyrus would be a prime candidate to fall under that category. What else has she always stood up for that is "right"? These hippies should take a shower and start contributing to society in a positive way.

      despite a wide umbrella, the OWS movement has always been about protesting economic injustice and the huge wealth disparities in America. What about that has been unclear?

    Like most young people, she seems to be a hippy pothead protester.
